CE Information and Faculty Disclosures

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


    • Evaluate patient- and disease-specific factors when designing an optimal induction therapeutic approach for patients with newly diagnosed follicular lymphoma (FL) requiring active therapy.
    • Appreciate the FDA approval of rituximab/lenalidomide for the management of relapsed/refractory (R/R) FL and available Phase III data investigating this combination as front-line therapy, and optimally incorporate this novel approach into treatment algorithms.
    • Assess the FDA-approved indication for polatuzumab vedotin in patients with R/R diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) after at least 2 prior therapies; review emerging first-line data with this agent combined with chemotherapy, and consider how it can be appropriately and safely incorporated into clinical management algorithms.
    • Review the recent FDA approval of loncastuximab tesirine for patients with R/R large B-cell lymphoma after 2 or more lines of systemic therapy, and consider how this agent can be appropriately and safely incorporated into clinical management algorithms.
    • Understand the mechanism of action of tafasitamab, and appreciate research data documenting the efficacy and safety of this novel, FDA-approved anti-CD19 antibody in combination with lenalidomide for patients with R/R DLBCL.
    • Review available efficacy and safety data with chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapies directed at CD19, and identify patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma for whom this approach may be appropriate as part of or outside a clinical research study.
    • Consider clinical, biologic and patient-related factors in the selection and sequencing of therapies for patients with classical Hodgkin lymphoma.
    • Consider patient age, performance status and other clinical and biologic factors in the selection of up-front and subsequent treatment for mantle cell lymphoma.
    • Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating other novel investigational strategies for the treatment of Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas, and counsel appropriately selected patients about availability and participation.
