Agenda

12:30 PM Welcome and Introduction: HCT and Novel Therapy in AML—What Are the Implications?
● Introductory comments on how emerging therapies may be used in transplant-eligible patients with AML—and what their emergence will mean for post-HCT outcomes (Jeffrey Lancet, MD)

12:40 PM HCT in AML and the Impact of Novel Therapies
● A look at the key evidence on novel cytotoxic and targeted therapies in transplant-eligible populations with AML, and what impact their use will have on patient outcomes post-transplant (Jeffrey Lancet, MD)

1:00 PM Optimizing Post-HCT Outcomes in AML: What Can Clinicians Do?
● Expert insight on major post-transplant complications in AML—and what clinicians can do to recognize and manage these important issues to optimize post-HCT outcomes (Robert Soiffer, MD)

1:20 PM Thoughts on the Changing Role of HCT in AML and Audience Q&A
● Take-home points from the panel followed by audience Q&A session on the role of transplant in AML and the implications of emerging therapeutics for HCT-eligible patients (Jeffrey Lancet, MD, and Robert Soiffer, MD)

CME Information

Three Key Reasons to Attend

Activity Description & Educational Objectives

Hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HCT) clearly has a role in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) management, but one intriguing question on the future of HCT in AML concerns the rapid emergence of several novel and active therapeutic options for AML. Newer therapies, including novel cytotoxics and targeted agents, may offer patients who struggle to benefit from conventional chemotherapy a chance for better outcomes, including in high-risk settings or in populations where the benefit of “7+3” is uneven at best. What will the validation of newer therapies mean for HCT-eligible patients with AML and for post-HCT outcomes? At PeerView’s upcoming live event being held at the BMT Tandem Meetings in 2017, our panel of experts will address this important question and offer clinical insight and new evidence that may define how HCT is used in conjunction with a range of next-generation therapies in the AML setting.
