LIVE WEBINAR: Wednesday, November 30, 2022, 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM Eastern Time

BCMA-Directed Therapy in Multiple Myeloma — Expert Opinions and Patient Perspectives

A 2-Part CME/MOC-Accredited Virtual Series

We are pleased to announce this 2-part live webinar series focused on the role of B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA)-directed therapy in the management of multiple myeloma. Each session will feature an exceptional faculty member in a moderated review of recent clinical research and current cases presented by consulting clinical investigators, including prerecorded conversations with the patients themselves. Both sessions will be moderated by Dr Neil Love.

Topics to Be Discussed

  • MODULE 1: Optimal Integration of CAR (Chimeric Antigen Receptor) T-Cell Therapy into the Care of Patients with Multiple Myeloma (MM)
  • MODULE 2: Incorporating Belantamab Mafodotin into Current MM Treatment Algorithms
  • MODULE 3: Future Role of BCMA-Targeted Bispecific Antibodies in the Treatment of MM

Target Audience
These activities are intended for medical oncologists, nurses, radiation oncologists and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of multiple myeloma.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of each activity, participants should be able to

  • Appraise the scientific rationale for targeting B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) in the care of patients with multiple myeloma (MM), and assess the similarities and differences between various approved and investigational strategies directed at BCMA.
  • Appreciate available data documenting the activity of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy targeting BCMA for MM, and use this knowledge to identify patients who may be appropriate for this approach within or outside of a protocol setting.
  • Develop an understanding of the mechanism of action of and pivotal clinical trial findings with the recently FDA-approved BCMA-targeted antibody-drug conjugate belantamab mafodotin for optimal integration into MM management algorithms.
  • Evaluate the biologic rationale for and available efficacy findings with the use of BCMA-directed bispecific antibodies for MM, and identify patients for whom a clinical trial of this novel strategy should be considered and/or recommended.
  • Recognize adverse events associated with approved and investigational anti-BCMA therapies for MM, educate patients and implement strategies to manage complications.
  • Recall the designs of ongoing clinical trials evaluating novel CAR T-cell therapies, antibody-drug conjugates and bispecific antibodies as monotherapy or in combination with other systemic approaches for MM, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
