This is an independent satellite symposium during the SOHO 2018 meeting.


Don't miss this educational opportunity to meet and interact with four thought leaders in AML.

The medical landscape of AML continues to evolve, as evidenced by the recent approval of four new agents in 2017 and the anticipated approval of additional novel agents in the very near future. An explosion of clinical trials and updated practice guidelines – coupled with a multitude of therapies in late-stage development – has created the vast challenge of staying up-to-date with clinical evidence impacting practice and patient outcomes. Our experts will provide a high-level overview of the latest data from newly diagnosed to relapsed disease, focusing on the most current therapeutic landscape.

The panelists will provide an opportunity for lively interaction with the audience, allowing sufficient time to present individual questions and clinical challenges for discussion.


This activity is designed for multidisciplinary healthcare providers in the community setting, including hematologists, oncologists, nurses, pharmacists and other allied healthcare professionals who provide care to patients with acute myeloid leukemia.

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
  • Summarize key considerations which drive the clinical decision-making process in newly diagnosed versus relapsed/refractory AML
  • Identify issues requiring special consideration in older AML patients and patients with high-risk disease
  • Outline practical strategies for effectively incorporating new and recently approved agents and combination regimens for AML into clinical practice, including treatment selection, dosing and adverse event management
  • Identify key clinical trial information which may further impact clinical practice in AML in the future
