Activity Description & Educational Objectives

Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT) is a potentially curative treatment option for myelofibrosis (MF); however, many patients have traditionally not been eligible for transplant. Recent developments in therapy for MF—particularly the emergence of JAK inhibitors—have increased the number of treatment options for patients with MF. These advances have also raised several questions with implications for HCT, including whether transplant-based treatment can be used in conjunction with JAK inhibitors and other emerging treatments. At PeerView’s upcoming live event at the BMT Tandem Meetings in 2017, leading experts in MF will offer their clinical insights on the evolving role of HCT in the modern JAK inhibitor–based treatment era for patients with MF and discuss practical considerations of eligibility, impact of JAK inhibitor therapy on post-transplant outcomes, and optimal combination and sequencing of the two modalities in appropriate patient candidates.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
