Once frustratingly slow, treatment advances in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) have been accelerating thanks to improved understanding of disease progression at the molecular level. Several new drug approvals have ended decades of stagnation in a field that had been notorious for lack of progress. Response rates to first and subsequent lines of therapy have been improving, especially among subsets of patients who carry actionable mutations. Nonetheless, relapse remains common. Novel therapies, consolidation chemotherapy, and/or hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) may prolong remissions, but relapse remains the primary obstacle to long-term survival. For this reason, maintenance therapy has had long-standing appeal and is finally emerging as a viable strategy that can be incorporated into clinical practice.
This activity, which consists of a downloadable slide resource, will provide learners with information to address knowledge and competence gaps in AML management as well as provide the most up-to-date information regarding the treatment of AML in the maintenance phase.
This educational initiative has been designed for hematologists, oncologists, and hematology/oncology fellows, attending physicians and trainees.
