Acute myeloid leukemia (AML), the most common form of leukemia, is characterized by a wide range of cytogenetic and molecular aberrations. These aberrations determine risk classification and, if available, targeted therapy. Recent data has changed the diagnostic threshold for AML, as well as risk classification and data on emerging therapies, by reshaping the future of treatment for newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory AML. Join Drs. Amer Zeidan and Kendra Sweet as they discuss these and other recent updates in AML.
