Topics to Be Discussed

  • Evolving Treatment Paradigm for Patients with Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL)
  • Optimal Management of Follicular Lymphoma
  • Available and Emerging Approaches for Mantle Cell Lymphoma
  • Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-Cell Therapy for DLBCL and Other Lymphomas
  • Selection and Sequencing of Therapies for Patients with Hodgkin Lymphoma
A detailed agenda will be provided by November.

Target Audience
This activity is intended for hematologists, medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

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

  • Recall published research data and other clinical factors in the best-practice selection, sequencing or combination of available therapeutic agents in the care of patients with previously untreated or relapsed/refractory (R/R) follicular lymphoma (FL).
  • Recognize the mechanisms of action, efficacy and safety of approved and investigational agents for the treatment of newly diagnosed and R/R mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) to determine the current and potential utility in clinical practice.
  • Incorporate new therapeutic strategies into the best-practice management of newly diagnosed and R/R Hodgkin lymphoma (HL).
  • Consider age, performance status and other clinical and biologic factors in up-front and subsequent therapy for patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL).
  • Develop an understanding of the biologic rationale for and appreciate the available efficacy and safety data with chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy, and identify patients with R/R B-cell lymphomas for whom this approach may be appropriate.
  • Design a plan of care to recognize and manage side effects and toxicities associated with current and recently approved systemic therapies in the management of FL, MCL, HL and DLBCL to support quality of life and continuation of therapy.
  • Recall new data with investigational agents and strategies demonstrating promising activity in various lymphoma subtypes, and discuss clinical trial opportunities with eligible patients.
