The Changing Face of Newly Diagnosed AML: Is There a Role for IDH Inhibitors?
Expected time to complete this activity as designed: 30 minutes
There are no fees for participating in or receiving credit for this online activity.
In this activity, Dr. Pollyea will outline the clinical imperative for mutational testing for IDH mutations during prognosis of AML and the implications of IDH1 and IDH2 mutations on prognosis and treatment selection. He will share the latest data which compare and contrast trial endpoints of elimination of minimal residual disease versus mutational clearance and relate each to its clinical impact in newly diagnosed AML patients. In addition, Dr. Pollyea will report on promising clinical trials of IDH1 and IDH2 inhibitors for AML, both alone and in combination with other therapies in the frontline setting.
This activity is designed for multidisciplinary healthcare providers in the community setting, including hematologists, oncologists, pharmacists and other allied healthcare professionals who provide care to patients with acute myeloid leukemia.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Outline the clinical imperative for mutational testing for IDH mutations during diagnosis of AML and the implications of IDH1 and IDH2 mutations on prognosis

- Describe promising clinical trials of IDH1/2 inhibitors for AML, both alone and in combination with other therapies, in the frontline setting
- Identify newly diagnosed AML patients who are candidates for clinical trials of IDH1/2 inhibitors
