18178 Novel Induction Options in AML: Assessing the Implications for HCT-Eligible Patients

In this activity, experts in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) guide you through the science that supports the rapid integration of newer induction regimens into the care of AML patients who are eligible for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT), while offering expert thoughts on what a more diverse selection of induction options means for patients who have the greatest need for alternative treatments, including those with high-risk disease, older individuals who are fit for intensive therapy, or patients with molecular aberrations/mutations conferring a poor prognosis.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of hematologist-oncologists, oncologists, BMT specialists and BMT nurse specialists, and other clinicians involved in the care of patients undergoing HCT.

Learning Objectives

  1. Summarize the current role and challenges of HCT and induction therapy in AML, including in elderly and high-risk patients
  2. Describe new evidence on novel induction strategies in AML such as novel cytotoxic or targeted strategies
  3. Select personalized, safe induction strategies for transplant eligible patients with AML who may not benefit from induction with standard 7+3
