Clinical trial club | Novel agents for the treatment of advanced myelofibrosis
Myelofibrosis is associated with a significant reduction in the quality of life of patients and an increased risk of mortality. As treatment options are mainly symptomatic, major treatment goals include reduction of symptoms and improvement of quality of life. While JAK inhibitors provide spleen control and symptom improvement for patients, response to treatment is often lost and there is currently an unmet need for novel therapies to effectively target the disease at the level of the malignant stem cell.
There is an ongoing effort to develop novel approaches with different modes of action to fulfil an unmet need when JAK inhibitors are not enough or fail to halt disease progression. With such progress, it is key that healthcare professionals understand novel targets and the mechanisms of action of new agents and maintain up-to-date knowledge of the role of new agents in the therapeutic landscape.
This 60-min live webinar is brought to you by Scientific Education Support as part of the clinical trial club series entitled "Novel agents for the treatment of advanced myelofibrosis", and will take place virtually on July 19, 2022.
The aim of this webinar, chaired by Laura Michaelis, is to discuss the phase II and phase III clinical trials (NCT03662126), investigating navtemadlin in patients with myelofibrosis (MF) who relapsed on or are refractory to JAK inhibitors, with trial investigator Haifa Kathrin Al-Ali. Together, they will review results from the open-label phase II trial and consider what these findings, and the ongoing randomized controlled phase III BOREAS trial, investigating navtemadlin versus best available therapy in relapsed/refractory MF, mean for clinical practice. This webinar will provide an opportunity for participants to interact with these world-renowned speakers and hear their expert opinion on the future of clinical practice in MPN.
This programme is accredited by the European Board for Accreditation of Continuing Education for Health Professionals (EBAC) for 1 hour of external CME credit. Each participant should claim only those hours of credit that have actually been spent in the educational activity.
