Activity Description:
The natural history of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a repeated pattern of remission and relapse; after a few relapses, patients have a very small chance of responding to any therapy. Considerable progress has been made over the last decade as the treatment paradigm has shifted from traditional chemoimmunotherapy toward targeted and cell-based therapies in both the frontline and relapsed/refractory (R/R) settings. However, selecting the best treatment is often complicated, involving multiple patient factors, and there is no established standard of care.

During 
Transitioning from Chemoimmunotherapy to More Targeted Approaches in MCL, experts will discuss using prognostic tools to plan treatment for individuals with MCL and targetable mutations, integrating emerging data and guidelines recommendations for front-line treatment, potential benefits and risks of chemotherapy-free targeted options, planning safe and effective use of novel therapies and combinations in the second- and third-line settings and for R/R MCL, and eradicating health inequities and closing the survival gap.  This lunch symposium, brought to you by Medical Learning Institute, Inc. (MLI), will be certified for continuing education credit for physicians, nurses, and pharmacists and will offer American Board of Internal Medicine Maintenance of Certification points. Don’t miss this exciting lunch symposium— REGISTER TODAY to reserve your spot!

This CE activity is intended for hematologic oncology clinicians, nurses, and pharmacists who provide care for individuals with mantle cell lymphoma (MCL). 

After completing this CE activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Develop strategies to utilize prognostic tools to improve care for patients with MCL with genomic alterations
  • Plan strategies to integrate emerging efficacy and safety data for approved and novel frontline treatment regimens to improve outcomes for patients with MCL
  • Formulate plans to integrate emerging efficacy and safety data for treatment regimens recommended in the guidelines and by experts to enhance outcomes for patients with R/R MCL
