Expand your understanding of AML targeted therapy options and how cytogenetics influences treatment decisions with these downloadable slides. Initial discussion will focus on AML subgroups classification. From there, options in initial therapy and relapsed or refractory disease will be featured. Finally, new targeted options will be examined in detail.

A deeper dive into AML subgroups
This activity is specifically designed to meet the needs of medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists, hematologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with cancer.
After successful completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Compare current AML classification systems and the role that cytogenetics plays in them
- Evaluate current initial therapeutic strategies in newly-diagnosed AML based on patient and disease characteristics
- Identify novel agents being investigated in relapsed/refractory AML
- Describe molecularly-defined subtypes of AML
This educational activity is supported by grants from Celgene, Helsinn Healthcare SA, and Novartis Oncology.
