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.

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?
  • Recommendations on CML management 2013 - 2017

This presentation is adapted from the one presented during the CML educational session at EHA. It lasts around 30 minutes.

-- Virtual Education Program: 2016 Edition

We are pleased to make available a new series of presentations on modern diagnostics in CML that were first presented at the 'Clinical Symposium on Modern Diagnostics' during the 18th John Goldman Conference on CML in Houston in 2016. Modules currently featured include; The role of cytogenetic monitoring in CML management, Molecular monitoring in CML, Mutation screening and Biomarkers and response monitoring beyond PCR.

Molecular monitoring in CML - getting to a safe place
Martin C. Müller, Institute for Hematology and Oncology (IHO) and Medical Faculty Mannheim, University of Heidelberg, Germany 

  • What do we consider safe?
  • Cytogenetic and molecular monitoring: European LeukemiaNet recommendations
  • Molecular monitoring every 3 months - enough for all patients?
  • Achieving deep remissions
  • Definitions of molecular response
  • Compliance check
  • Conclusions

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.
