Welcome to the iCMLf Virtual Education Program

This Virtual Education Program, provided by the iCMLf offers a series of webcast presentations from leading hematologists.

These presentations provide updated information on treatment advances and best practice management of CML, including disease monitoring and new therapies. The sessions specifically address issues of CML care in countries with limited access to monitoring and supplemental treatments.

-- Virtual Education Program: 2017 Edition

We are pleased to make available a new series of presentations on various aspects of CML management that were first presented at the 22nd Meeting of the European Hematology Association (EHA) in Madrid in 2017. Modules currently featured include; how to treat CML in 2017, factors affecting clinical decision making in relapsed and refractory CP-CML patients and treatment outcomes of bosutinib from real-world data. 

 We are very grateful for the support of Brandcast media to produce these webstreams.

How to treat CML in 2017?
Andreas Hochhaus, Universitätsklinikum Jena, Germany 

  • Objectives of treatment optimization
  • Choice of initial therapy
  • Clinical data on 1st and 2nd generation TKI's
  • Comorbidities in CML at diagnosis
  • Main adverse events of TKI's
  • ELN recommendations for monitoring of first-line TKI therapy
  • Recommendations for switch: CP-CML
  • Management of blast crisis
  • Limitations of TKI therapies
  • Discussion: are we ready for routine stopping procedure?
