Navigating the Frontier of Hematologic Malignancy Therapies. Series of 5 Modules

Program Overview

This activity will cover the latest advances in the therapeutic management of hematologic malignancies, including bispecific antibodies, CAR-T products, proteolysis-targeting chimeras, and antibody-drug conjugates — with an emphasis on novel targets and approaches. The prognostic role of circulating tumor DNA is also explored.

Credit Expired

Target Audience

Hematologists, oncologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with blood cancers.

Educational Objectives

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

  • Analyze available data on bispecific antibodies for the treatment of multiple myeloma (Module 1 CME 0.5 credit)
  • Identify potential T-cell immunotherapeutic strategies for the treatment of lymphomas and other hematologic malignancies (Module 2 CME 0.5 credits)
  • Describe emerging proteolysis targeting chimeras (PROTACs) under investigation for the treatment of hematologic malignancies (Module 3 CME 0.5 credits)
  • Assess key data sets and ongoing clinical trials investigating antibody-drug conjugates for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) (Module 4 CME: 0.5 credits)
  • Examine the potential utility of circulating tumor DNA for risk prediction and individualizing therapy for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) (Module 5 CME: 1.0 credit)
