How Can We Be More Strategic in Treatment Planning for Patients with ALL?

Release Date: September 9, 2021
Expiration Date: September 9, 2022

Activity Overview

Identification of new cytogenetic and molecular abnormalities is leading to great progress in understanding the pathophysiology of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). The addition of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), monoclonal antibodies, novel immune therapies, and chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy to the treatment landscape has resulted in improved clinical outcomes and more individualized therapeutic regimens based upon patient characteristics, including genetic mutations and previous lines of therapy.

This symposium focuses on the practical aspects of strategically planning management of patients with ALL from front-line treatment to management of relapsed/refractory disease. In addition, it puts recent clinical trial data into a practical, clinical context. The program includes a review of current recommendations regarding testing for minimal residual disease and case presentations by expert faculty, who review treatment selection and sequencing.
