Program Overview

The treatment landscape for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) continues to evolve with several recent FDA approvals of novel treatment options, including an isocitrate dehydrogenase 2 (IDH2) inhibitor. Mutated IDH2 is present in 8-19% of patients diagnosed with AML, making it an important target to treat when managing the disease. View this activity and hear how Dr. Carraway discusses the role of IDH2 inhibitors in the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of patients with IDH2-mutated AML. She will outline a treatment plan for managing these patients in the relapsed or refractory setting, taking into consideration patient selection, proper administration, and potential adverse events. Furthermore, Dr. Carraway will identify the latest updates in emerging data related to the safety and efficacy of IDH2 inhibitors currently in clinical trials.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for multidisciplinary healthcare providers in the community setting, including hematologists, oncologists, pharmacists and other allied healthcare professionals who provide care to patients with AML.
