18180 Integrated Myeloma Management for Transplant-Eligible Patients: The Conjunction of Novel Therapeutic Platforms, Innovative Agents, and HCT

This PeerView activity, based on a recent live symposium held at the 2018 BMT Tandem Meetings, offers expert insights on the continued integration of next-generation and novel therapeutics in conjunction with the use of autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HCT), while also exploring the clinical implications of new data for the selection of newer induction, post-HCT maintenance, and salvage regimens across the breadth of myeloma treatment settings.  Our panel of myeloma experts also assess other issues in transplant-eligible myeloma patients, including early versus late HCT, the growing importance of  minimal residual disease (MRD) assessment, and the emergence of new agent classes and therapeutic concepts for heavily pretreated individuals, including those who have had HCT as part of their treatment history.  

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 evidence regarding the current role and clinical criteria for the use of emerging and established regimens in conjunction with autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) in the management of multiple myeloma
  2. Develop personalized induction and post–ASCT maintenance/consolidation regimens with novel components for eligible patients with multiple myeloma
  3. Select novel therapeutics for the management of relapsed multiple myeloma post-ASCT
