Oncology Consultations®: Critical Conversations for Treating sAML in the Outpatient Setting

Release Date: December 8, 2021
Expiration Date: December 8, 2022


Activity Overview

This online, on-demand virtual program brings together 2 experts to discuss how they have integrated new diagnostic tools and acute myeloid leukemia (AML) therapies into their treatment algorithms for patients with secondary AML (sAML). Since 2017, 9 new agents have been approved for the treatment of AML, including FLT3 inhibitors, IDH inhibitors, a liposomal formulation of cytarabine-daunorubicin, and a BCL-2 inhibitor, among others. In their conversation, the faculty review recent efficacy and safety data regarding these therapies and discuss the caveats associated with treating this specific group of patients. They discuss 3 real-world cases of patients with secondary AML with a focus on management in the outpatient setting.
