Year in Review: Clinical Investigator Perspectives on the Most Relevant New Data Sets and Advances in Follicular Lymphoma (Webinar Audio Proceedings)
Released February 2022

Featuring perspectives from Drs John Leonard and Laurie Sehn. Published February 4, 2022. (Webinar Audio Proceedings)

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 follicular lymphoma.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Evaluate published research data and clinical investigator perspectives when designing an optimal approach to induction therapy 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 available data investigating rituximab/lenalidomide for patients with treatment-naïve and relapsed/refractory (R/R) FL, and optimally incorporate this approach into therapeutic algorithms.
    • Compare and contrast the data supporting the use of the commercially available PI3K inhibitors idelalisib, copanlisib, duvelisib and umbralisib, and use this understanding to optimally integrate these agents into the care of patients with R/R FL.
    • Recall key efficacy and safety data from clinical trials of approved and investigational chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapies directed at CD19 for R/R FL, and identify patients who may be candidates for this approach.
    • Review the mechanism of action of, available data with and ongoing evaluation of bispecific antibodies targeting CD20 and CD3, and consider the potential role of these agents in the management of R/R FL.
    • Assess ongoing clinical trials evaluating other novel investigational approaches for newly diagnosed or R/R FL, and obtain consent from appropriate patients for study participation.
