Activity Description & Educational Objectives

The recent emergence and validation of novel and next-generation therapeutics, such as proteasome inhibitors, immunomodulators, immunotherapies, and epigenetic agents, have changed optimal practice in the management of multiple myeloma. As the science continues to evolve, clinicians now have the opportunity to translate this evidence into daily practice; when used in patients eligible for autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT), novel therapies have the potential to dramatically improve outcomes with more potent and personalized induction and consolidation/maintenance regimens; subsequently, a greater role for the novel therapeutics is being realized for patients with relapsed disease, including in patients already treated with HCT. This breakfast symposium will feature expert insights on the management of transplant-eligible patients with myeloma, including the role of innovative therapies and considerations for selection of optimal treatment prior to and after HCT.

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