Advances in MF and PV: Individualizing Care Based on Patient- and Disease-Specific Factors

Release Date: August 31, 2021
Expiration Date: August 31, 2022

Activity Overview

Myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) comprise a diverse range of hematologic cancers, with optimal management requiring careful risk stratification and treatment planning. In recent years, refinements in disease biology and development of novel therapeutic options have led to improved control of symptoms and lessened risk of serious adverse events.

This virtual, on-demand webcast is specifically designed to meet the needs of busy clinicians who treat patients who have received a diagnosis of polycythemia vera (PV) or myelofibrosis (MF) by providing an update on optimal risk stratification, treatment selection, and emerging therapeutic options. These didactic presentations are placed into real-world context through discussion of 4 case scenarios spanning the disease continuum for PV and MF. These cases will help place recent findings and treatment recommendations into context for participants.
