CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

    This activity is intended for medical oncologists and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of follicular lymphoma (FL).

    FL is an indolent form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma that can vary significantly in its clinical presentation. Because of this variation, no single standard approach to the initial management of FL has been established, and available options range from watchful waiting, radiation therapy or rituximab monotherapy to various combinations of chemoimmunotherapy. Recent data sets and corresponding FDA actions have led to the emergence of new therapeutic targets and regimens, thereby altering management algorithms. In order to offer patients the best possible care, including the option of clinical trial participation, the practicing medical oncologist must be well informed of these advances.

    This program features a discussion with 2 leading hematology-oncology investigators. By providing information on the latest clinical developments in the context of expert perspectives, this activity assists medical oncologists, hematologists and hematology-oncology fellows with the formulation of evidence-based therapeutic strategies, which in turn facilitates the optimal care of patients with FL.


    • Evaluate published research data, recent FDA approvals and clinical investigator perspectives when designing an optimal therapeutic approach for patients with newly diagnosed follicular lymphoma (FL) requiring active therapy.
    • Identify patient- and disease-specific factors that may portend poor response to initial chemoimmunotherapy, and consider this information in treatment decision-making for individuals with previously untreated FL.
    • Appreciate the recent approval of rituximab/lenalidomide for the management of relapsed/refractory (R/R) FL and available Phase III data investigating its use as front-line therapy, and optimally incorporate this novel therapeutic approach into current treatment algorithms.
    • Recall published research data in the best-practice selection, sequencing or combining of available therapeutic agents in the nonresearch care of patients with R/R FL.
    • Compare and contrast the efficacy of the commercially available PI3K inhibitors idelalisib, copanlisib and duvelisib in the treatment of R/R FL to determine the appropriate role of each in clinical practice.
    • Develop practical strategies to prevent, recognize and ameliorate the toxicities associated with therapies routinely used for patients with FL.
    • Identify ongoing clinical trials evaluating innovative approaches for FL, and inform appropriately selected patients about these options for treatment.
