Monthly Oncology Tumor Boards: Advances in Multidisciplinary Management of Acute Myeloid Leukemia

June 17, 2021

Advances in the molecular understanding of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) have enhanced risk stratification and optimized therapeutic strategies. However, there is still a need for further refinement of current pre- and post-treatment risk stratification processes, and a need for additional treatment options for patients who have unfavorable cytogenetics or experience poor outcomes. Some novel treatment options are associated with improved clinical outcomes and fewer side effects than the conventional standard regimens. In many cases, there are unique adverse effects that require close monitoring and specialized supportive care. Clinicians need to be informed about these therapeutic advances and necessary supportive care precautions to aid in their effective and safe incorporation into clinical practice for the appropriate AML patient subpopulations.
