    A Glimpse Into the Future of Myeloma Patient Management

    This program is supported by the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation


    7:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. Eastern time

    Georgia World Congress Center
    Thomas Murphy Ballroom 1–2- Level 5

    In the last 18 years, oncology clinicians and patients have witnessed significant advances in multiple myeloma (MM) management, with the development of new strategies for establishing diagnosis, assessing prognosis, monitoring minimal residual disease, and delivering supportive care. In this time, 16 new drugs have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in MM—including ten new MM approved in the last 6 years alone. The rapidity with which clinical data relating to MM therapy (including the MM precursor condition smoldering multiple myeloma) continues to evolve and emerge all but ensures that the treatment paradigm will continue to change significantly in the future.

    To help hematologist-oncologists prepare for how patient management may change, this symposium will feature four topics and speakers will present a review of how patient management is approached today or how it will be approached three years from now. The audience will be polled on how difficult it may be to implement patient management strategies of the future into practice.

    7:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. Eastern time

    Hyatt Regency Atlanta
    Centennial 4- Ballroom Level

    Multiple recent regulatory approvals of novel therapeutics in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) have brought on a fundamental break with the previous treatment era, which was defined by the widespread use of cytarabine-based therapy and, to a lesser extent, certain lower-intensity agents. Currently, clinicians can seize the opportunity offered by this decisive change and address the needs of diverse AML patient populations by judiciously selecting personalized and highly effective treatment.

    This live CME/MOC-certified Seminars and Tumor Board educational event will reflect the recent changes in AML by convening a panel of leading hematology-oncology experts. The panelists, mimicking real-world tumor boards, will use a series of cases to illustrate the importance of accurate assessment of baseline factors and collaboration with other disciplines when making treatment choices. From there, the panelists will link therapeutic decision-making to the science that has shown improved patient outcomes are possible across the spectrum of AML, including in high-risk/poor prognosis, mutation-defined, and postremission settings. This unique educational offering will allow professional learners to “seize the day” in AML and effectively integrate novel cytotoxic, targeted, epigenetic, and antibody-based approaches into their practice.

    Targeted Therapies in CLL/SLL: Treatment Sequencing and Adverse Events Management

    This program is supported by Lymphoma Research Foundation

    Georgia World Congress Center
    Thomas Murphy Ballroom 3-4, Level 5

    B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) management has advanced significantly in recent years, and patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) have been beneficiaries of these advances. However, studies have shown that as many as 40% of patients with CLL/SLL undergoing treatment with novel agents discontinue therapy, the majority of which are due to adverse events (AEs), and data suggest that the management of AEs is not consistent with recommendations. Moreover, despite advances in treatment, many patients will relapse, and subsequent treatment decisions are challenging. Real-world and prospective data regarding the impact of treatment sequence on patient outcomes are just emerging, and there is no guidance on sequencing therapies for patients who discontinue first-line therapy due to toxicity or progression.

    To help hematologist-oncologists keep pace with recommended AE management strategies and emerging data for treatment sequencing, this CME-certified FSS will consist of evidence-based presentations interspersed with real-world patient cases designed to provide learners with expert faculty insights and analysis of the clinical implications of new and emerging data for minimizing treatment-emergent AEs and managing treatment sequencing decisions in patients with CLL/SLL.

    The therapeutic management of sickle cell disease (SCD) is evolving at a rapid pace. Several new agents, including agents targeting SCD vasculopathy and sickle cell–endothelial adhesive events, have been recently approved in the SCD therapeutic landscape and several emerging antisickling agents are in clinical studies that are poised to transform clinical practice in this disease. With increasing treatment options, it is more important than ever that clinicians remain abreast of recent clinical evidence on approved and emerging therapies. During this live CME/MOC/NCPD/CPE symposium/web broadcast, a panel of experts will offer physicians the recent clinical evidence to actualize these clinical and research advances into improved outcomes for patients with SCD. Our expert panel will discuss current and novel emerging therapeutic options for SCD, and provide strategies for interprofessional collaboration and patient engagement in routine clinical practice. After the lectures, a final case-based practicum segment will focus on the practical aspects of integrating innovative therapies for managing patients with SCD.

    The Karmanos Cancer Institute, in collaboration with the Amyloidosis Foundation and Amyloidosis Support Groups, Inc., is developing a CME symposium to be conducted on Friday, December 10th, 2021, preceding the annual American Society of Hematology (ASH) meeting. It will consist of a case-based series of presentations focused on the diagnosis, pathophysiology, and treatment of systemic amyloidosis, with a particular emphasis on AL amyloidosis. Recent advances in the therapy of all types of amyloidosis will be discussed during symposium. Invited speakers will present a clinical vignette which raises questions or illustrates key points related to the assigned topic. Given the importance of multidisciplinary management of amyloidosis, the invited speakers include amyloidosis experts from the fields of hematology, cardiology, and nephrology. Further, we intend to live-stream the presentations to expand the audience beyond those attending the ASH Annual Meeting. The program is intended to be interactive, and the audience will be asked to provide opinions and answers to questions intermittently throughout the program via Sync System. Panel discussions after the speakers' presentations will provide an opportunity to address questions from the live audience.

    This CME/MOC program, part 1 of a 4-part series, will focus on the management of chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Five investigators will serve as the program’s faculty, one of whom will moderate the event. Prior to the program, Research To Practice (RTP) will recruit 5 general medical oncologists and hematologists to help frame the program’s content and agenda. RTP will work with these individuals to identify specific challenging clinical situations or questions from their practice for which they would seek input from an investigator. These clinicians will participate in a Working Group session during which their questions will be presented. The session will be video-recorded, and RTP will select excerpts for presentation at the live meeting. The agenda for the symposium will be divided into 5 modules, each featuring the presentation and discussion of video excerpts from the Working Group and a faculty member-led presentation formally reviewing emerging research relevant to the issues being presented. To make the event even more relevant, attendees will use iPads to participate in a survey related to the topics, questions and cases discussed. Polling results will be interspersed throughout each module to foster additional debate. The program will also be simulcast for those participating virtually.

    Continuous or fixed-duration therapy with targeted agents (including BTK, PI3K, and BCL-2 inhibitors) in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) has overturned the decades-long consensus centered on immunochemotherapy and decisively become the new standard of care. When developing optimized regimens for patients, clinicians can now personalize treatment choices by selecting among targeted strategies or within potent drug classes. Future novel combinatorial approaches in CLL are also likely to usher in an era of potent, effective strategies with the ability to induce deeper and more durable responses.

    In collaboration with the CLL Society, this CME-certified live Seminars and Tumor Board event will feature a panel of leading CLL experts who, mimicking the collaborative nature of real-world tumor boards, will blend serial, case-based discussion with mini seminars designed to illustrate how fully integrating targeted therapeutics—including BTK, PI3K, and BCL-2 inhibitors, as well as novel antibodies—can improve care across the clinical spectrum of CLL. Panelists will cover important clinical topics such as the personalized, evidence-based selection of upfront treatment strategies, therapeutic sequencing in progressive disease settings, safety management and distinctions among agent classes, and next-generation and novel combinatorial strategies. Throughout, the experts will profile tools and resources from the CLL Society that can be used to enhance patient care. Register today for this exciting event!

    This symposium will feature presentations and panel discussions with perspectives and recommendations from multiple experts. In addition, the expert panel will address audience questions, challenges, and cases identified in the “Live Case and Question Submission” that are sent directly to the faculty. At the live symposium, all attendees will be provided with a networked IML connector (or online polling capability), an all-in-one handheld device that enables learners to fully interact in case management voting. Of importance, the IML technology is preferred over “standard ARS,” as it adds the ability for learners to submit questions to the expert faculty by text message, thereby directly contributing to the content and outcome of the symposium. This symposium format will provide an interactive way to disseminate cutting-edge information and expert perspectives to learners, while also addressing educational gaps related to the translation of practice-changing data into clinical practice.

    Treatments for hemophilia B are burdensome for patients and caregivers alike, often requiring lifelong daily intervention. Could gene therapy for hemophilia B change the treatment paradigm by offering a potential cure? Promising results from clinical trials are emerging, and healthcare providers (HCPs) will soon be faced with guiding their patients through the decision process—maintain an established but intrusive regimen, or switch to a novel, less burdensome, but still emerging, therapy? As part of shared decision-making, HCPs will need to understand and communicate potential benefits and risks, along with long-term safety and durability findings, and address patient concerns, needs, and barriers. Along with our expert patient and scientist, Radoslaw Kaczmarek, our faculty of clinicians will explore the rationale for gene therapy in hemophilia B, recent clinical trial data, and patient considerations.

    Recognizing that the patient is at the core of treatment decisions, this symposium places a patient with hemophilia B on the faculty panel to share his perspectives concerning gene therapy. Following a series of engaging didactic presentations incorporating audience interaction, participants will be encouraged to connect with the faculty and patient panelists throughout the program through collaborative questions and a dynamic panel discussion.

    Overcoming Cancer-Related Anemia With Intravenous Iron: Hematologist/Oncologist Approaches For Optimizing Clinical Outcomes and Improving Patient Quality Of Life

    This program is supported by Creative Educational Concepts


    7:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. Eastern time

    Hyatt Regency Atlanta
    International North/South

    Activity attendees will be given the opportunity to interact with expert faculty across all clinically relevant aspects of cancer-related anemia (CRA) management, including chemotherapy-induced anemia (CIA). The session will begin with a review of iron metabolism and absorption, including the distinctions between absolute and functional iron deficiency, and the impact of those distinctions on treatment decisions. An appraisal of the etiology and foundational pathophysiology of CRA will follow, with a central emphasis on the role of hepcidin and functional iron deficiency (FID) in a hyperinflammatory disease state like cancer, and how those processes should lead to preferential use of intravenous (IV) iron versus oral iron in patients with cancer. Completed and ongoing clinical trials of IV iron for CRA will be examined, and next generation formulations with nanocolloidal drug design will be highlighted, especially their improved safety profiles. Finally, using real-world patient cases, hematology/oncology experts will share insights on how and why IV iron possesses the capacity to revolutionize treatment of CRA and CIA.

    This CME/MOC program, part 4 of a 4-part series, will focus on the management of Acute Myeloid Leukemia and Myelodysplastic Syndromes. Five investigators will serve as faculty, one of whom will moderate the event. Prior to the program, Research To Practice (RTP) will recruit 5 general medical oncologists and hematologists to help frame the program’s content and agenda. RTP will work with these individuals to identify challenging clinical situations or questions from their practice for which they would seek input from an investigator. These clinicians will then participate in a Working Group session during which their questions will be presented. The session will be video-recorded and RTP will select excerpts for presentation during the live meeting. The symposium agenda will be divided into 5 modules, each featuring the presentation and discussion of video excerpts from the Working Group and a faculty member-led presentation formally reviewing emerging research relevant to the issues and scenarios being presented. To make the event even more relevant, attendees will use iPads to participate in a survey related to the topics, questions and cases discussed. Polling results will be interspersed throughout each module to foster additional debate. The program will also simulcast for virtual participants.
