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.

 

Presentations from the 24rd Congress of EHA 

We are pleased to make available a couple of presentations on various aspects of CML management that were first presented at the 24rd Congress of the European Hematology Association in Amsterdam. Presentations include; CML treatment in the era of operational cure: considerations for therapy selection; current treatment approaches in CML, The future of CML therapy: unmet medical needs and new treatments in development, TKI safety and special aspects in children.
