Management of Patients with Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma: Elsevier CME Independent Conference Highlights from EBMT and EHA 2018

Format: Conference Reporter

*This webcast is not endorsed by the conference organizer. The Elsevier Office of Continuing Medical Education is an independent medical education company that provides clinical updates, analysis, and expert perspectives through conference-coverage educational programs.

In this CME-accredited webcast, three experts discuss the clinical implications of some of the latest important research on relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM). The roundtable discussion covers new data presented at the 2018 annual meetings of the European Hematology Association (EHA) and the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT). The topics discussed include: unmet needs in the treatment of RRMM; new data on treatment strategies (including the roles of proteasome inhibitors, immunomodulatory drugs, and monoclonal antibodies); and emerging treatments, such as chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapies.

Current and Future Therapies for Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Infection

Format: Webcast

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection remains a frequent complication in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and solid organ transplantation (SOT) recipients. In addition to causing a variety of end-organ diseases, CMV infection is also associated with rejection after SOT and with graft versus host disease (GVHD) after HSCT, as well as with increased risk of secondary bacterial and fungal infections. Antiviral prophylaxis, more commonly used after SOT, is effective against direct and indirect effects of CMV infection, but may lead to overtreatment. Preemptive therapy, more commonly used after HSCT, is based on surveillance, and targets therapy to patients at highest risk. Several antiviral agents are currently available for CMV management; however, their use may be associated with myelosuppression and nephrotoxicity. Novel antiviral therapies with different mechanisms of action are in late-stage development and hold the promise of reducing CMV-related morbidity and mortality.

Incorporating Immuno-oncology Agents into Solid and Liquid Tumor Treatment Paradigms: Highlights from ASCO 2017 – Expert Discussion

Format: Webcast

Immunotherapy is now an established treatment approach for patients with cancer across oncology. Immunotherapy agents are a newer type of anticancer drug, and the drugs in the largest class, checkpoint inhibitors, block the checkpoint pathways that cancer cells use to shut down the patient’s immune system. Checkpoint inhibitors are associated with more durable clinical responses compared to both small molecule targeted therapy and conventional chemotherapy (CT). Because checkpoint inhibitors have unique mechanisms of action, they also produce immune-related adverse events and response patterns that are markedly distinct from targeted agents or conventional CT. The 5 currently available immunotherapy agents have 18 indications across multiple cancer types. Checkpoint inhibitors demonstrate the potential to change current cancer treatment paradigms.                        

In this interactive CE activity, a leading medical oncologist discusses highlights of several key presentations from the 2017 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual  Meeting on the use of checkpoint inhibitors in several cancer types. Topics include questions on appropriate clinical setting for immunotherapy (eg, refractory cancer), dose, combination therapy, treatment beyond progression, and side-effect profile for patients.

ASCO & ESMO 2017 Highlights: Incorporating Immuno-oncology Agents into Solid and Liquid Tumor Treatment Paradigms

Format: Webcast

 The goal of this initiative is to help medical oncology and hematology-oncology physicians and advanced practitioners in community and academic settings to integrate checkpoint inhibitors into cancer treatment regimens and understand their unique safety and response profiles.

Integrating Biosimilars into Supportive Care: Insights for Informed Decisions

Format: Webcast

Biosimilars, which have been available in Europe for more than 10 years, are increasingly gaining regulatory approval in the United States. These agents have the potential to contain rapidly increasing health care costs and simultaneously enable greater patient access. The cornerstone of broad acceptance of biosimilars is increased education of all involved parties regarding regulatory standards for biosimilar approval, preclinical and clinical data requirements, interchangeability, and extrapolation of indications.
