Each 1-hour session will be divided into topic modules focused on current management, emerging research and novel agents and strategies under active investigation for myelofibrosis. Each event will employ an identical format that will include the following elements:

  • Moderator Dr Neil Love and a featured participating clinical investigator
  • Discussion of participating faculty treatment recommendations
  • Review of available clinical research findings
  • Community oncologist video case presentations
  • Interactive audience polling and extensive Q&A

    MODULE 1: Considerations in the Selection of Initial Treatment for Patients with Myelofibrosis (MF)

    MODULE 2: Current and Potential Management of MF in Patients with Thrombocytopenia

    MODULE 3: Evolving Therapeutic Landscape for Patients with MF and Disease Progression on or Intolerance to Initial JAK Inhibitor Therapy

    MODULE 4: Novel Agents and Strategies Under Investigation for MF Beyond JAK Inhibitors

Target Audience
This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows, radiation oncologists and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of myelofibrosis (MF).

Learning Objectives

  • Analyze how age, performance status, prior therapeutic exposure and other biologic and disease-related factors affect the selection and sequencing of therapy for patients with primary or postpolycythemia vera/essential thrombocythemia MF.
  • Appreciate the FDA approval of fedratinib for intermediate-2- or high-risk primary or secondary MF, and identify patients for whom treatment with this agent is appropriate.
  • Assess the tolerability profiles of ruxolitinib and fedratinib, and formulate a side-effect management plan to support quality of life and continuation of treatment.
  • Understand the mechanism of action of and available clinical research data with pacritinib for patients with MF and severe thrombocytopenia in preparation for the potential availability of this novel therapeutic approach.
  • Appraise available and emerging clinical trial findings with momelotinib for patients with MF, including those with disease-related anemia, and discern the role this agent may have in the disease-management paradigm.
  • Recall the biologic rationale for the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating novel investigational agents and strategies for MF, and refer eligible patients for study participation.
