CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of hematologic cancers.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Customize the use of induction, consolidation and maintenance therapeutic approaches for multiple myeloma (MM) in the transplant and nontransplant settings, considering patient- and disease-related factors, including cytogenetic profile.
    • Consider published research findings and other clinical and disease-related factors in the best-practice selection, sequencing or combining of established regimens in the treatment of newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory (R/R) MM.
    • Appreciate available clinical trial data informing the use of monoclonal antibody therapy directed at CD38 for patients with MM, and effectively identify when and how this strategy should be integrated into clinical management.
    • Develop an understanding of the mechanisms of action of and pivotal clinical trial findings with recently FDA-approved novel therapies (eg, isatuximab, melflufen, belantamab mafodotin) to facilitate integration of these agents into MM management algorithms.
    • Consider the recent FDA approval of idecabtagene vicleucel for R/R MM, and identify patients who may be appropriate for this therapy.
    • Appraise the activity of bispecific T-cell engagers and investigational chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapies to determine the potential role of these strategies for patients with MM.
