2021 SOHO ISS: Medical Crossfire®: How Can We Leverage Emerging Data to Optimize Outcomes Across Lines of Care in AML?

Release Date: October 29, 2021
Expiration Date: October 29, 2022

Activity Overview

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a heterogenous hematologic malignancy, is the most common form of acute leukemia among adults. Until recently, relatively few major treatment breakthroughs had occurred for patients with AML. Treatment approaches relied almost exclusively on chemotherapy and, in some cases, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). However, rapidly emerging therapy options have dramatically improved outcomes in patients with both newly-diagnosed, as well as relapsed/refractory AML. In this program, expert hematologists will review clinical data on biomarkers that play a role in predicting the prognosis of patients with AML and selecting therapy, and on available and emerging therapies across the spectrum of the disease.
