CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity is intended for hematologists, medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of multiple myeloma (MM).

    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.
    • Appreciate available clinical trial data documenting the efficacy of anti-CD38-based therapies for newly diagnosed or relapsed/refractory (R/R) MM, and identify how this strategy can be effectively integrated into the clinical care of patients.
    • Recognize published research data validating the use of minimal residual disease (MRD) status as a mechanism to assess response to active therapy.
    • Consider published research findings and other clinical factors in the best-practice selection, sequencing or combination of available therapies in the nonresearch care of patients with R/R MM.
    • Develop an understanding of the mechanism of action and available data with recently FDA-approved novel therapies to facilitate their integration into current MM management algorithms.
    • Appreciate available data documenting the activity of chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy, bispecific T-cell engagers and antibody-drug conjugates designed to target B-cell maturation antigen, and use this knowledge to identify patients with MM who may be appropriate for these therapeutic approaches as part of a clinical trial.
    • Assess ongoing clinical trials evaluating novel investigational approaches for MM, and obtain consent from appropriate patients for study participation.
