Virtual Meetings 2020

Clinical Investigator Perspectives on the Current and Future Management of Multiple Myeloma — A Virtual Meet The Professor Series

For more information, please contact us at Meetings@ResearchToPractice.com or (800) 233-6153.

Each 1-hour session will include 3 topic modules focused on current management, emerging research and novel agents and strategies under active investigation for MM. Each event will employ an identical format that will include the following elements:

  • • Discussion of Steering Committee Members’ Treatment Recommendations
  • • Review of Available Clinical Research Findings
  • • Integration of Interactive Audience Polling Results
MODULE 1 Clinical Decision-Making for Patients with Newly Diagnosed MM MODULE 2 Contemporary Management of Relapsed/Refractory MM MODULE 3 Novel Agents and Strategies in Late-Stage Development

Target Audience
This activity is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of MM.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss available research data informing the use of monoclonal antibody therapy directed at CD38 as a component of induction therapy for patients with MM eligible or ineligible for stem cell transplant, and effectively identify when and how this strategy should be integrated into the clinical management of this disease.
  • Customize induction, consolidation and maintenance therapeutic approaches for active MM in the post-transplant and nontransplant settings, considering patient- and disease-related factors, including cytogenetic profile.
  • Evaluate research data supporting a role for minimal residual disease (MRD) status in predicting long-term outcomes with therapy, and use this information to determine the potential role of MRD assays in protocol and nonresearch management of MM.
  • Apply published research data and other clinical factors in the best-practice selection, sequencing or combining of available therapies in the nonresearch care of patients with relapsed/refractory MM.
  • Discuss available data documenting the activity of chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy and antibody-drug conjugates designed to target BCMA (B-cell maturation antigen), and use this knowledge to identify patients with MM who may be appropriate for these therapeutic approaches on clinical trials.
  • Assess the mechanisms of action of, available data with and ongoing clinical trials evaluating other novel, investigational approaches for MM, and consider the potential role of these therapies in clinical practice.
