Minneapolis, MN US
November 17, 2016

AML disease heterogeneity and diverse patient fitness levels have led to debate over therapeutic options for older adults. New research is clarifying the risks and benefits of treatment choices for the increasing number of patients over age 60 who are considering induction therapy and consolidative HCT. Using an interactive, case study-based format, presenters will discuss patient comorbidities, disease factors and assessment tools that influence treatment decision-making.
