Live CME-accredited webinar

Topics to Be Discussed

  • Optimizing induction therapy for patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM)
  • Prolonging benefit with effective consolidation and maintenance regimens
  • Selection and sequencing of available therapies for patients with relapsed/refractory MM
  • Potential role of chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy in patients with MM
  • Other novel strategies with the potential to improve outcomes in MM

Target Audience
This activity is intended for hematologists, medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of multiple myeloma (MM).

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to

  • Customize the use of induction, consolidation and maintenance therapeutic approaches for MM in the transplant and nontransplant settings, considering patient- and disease-related factors, including cytogenetic profile.
  • Appreciate available clinical trial data documenting the efficacy of monoclonal antibody therapy directed at CD38 as a component of induction therapy, and effectively identify whether and how this strategy should be integrated into the clinical care of patients eligible or ineligible for stem cell transplant.
  • Recognize published research data validating the use of minimal residual disease (MRD) status as a mechanism to assess response to active therapy and to identify disease recurrence, and use this information to determine the potential role of MRD assays in the protocol and off-protocol management of MM.
  • Consider published research findings and other clinical factors in the best-practice selection, sequencing or combination of available therapies in the nonresearch care of patients with relapsed/refractory MM.
  • Develop an understanding of the mechanism of action of and available data with recently FDA-approved novel therapies to facilitate their integration into MM management algorithms.
  • Appreciate available data documenting the activity of chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy, bispecific T-cell engagers and antibody-drug conjugates designed to target B-cell maturation antigen, and use this knowledge to identify patients with MM who may be appropriate for these therapeutic approaches.
  • Assess ongoing clinical trials evaluating novel investigational approaches for MM, and obtain consent from appropriate patients for study participation.

CME Credit Form
A CME credit form will be emailed to participants within 3 business days of the activity.
