  • Novel Therapies in Myeloid Malignancies Download Novel Therapies in Myeloid Malignancies to my desktop calendar

    September 15, 2017 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM Program Description Progress has been made in the treatment of cancer. However, most patients with advanced myeloid malignancies will die of their disease either because treatment options remain limited as is the case for myelofibrosis or because the standard treatments used for younger patients are too toxic in the elderly patients most likely to develop the disease as is the case for induction chemotherapy and allogeneic transplantation in acute myeloid leukemia. This symposium will provide an overview of novel therapeutics for myeloid malignancies. Further, it will bring together basic and clinical scientists in order to accurately depict the current treatment options as well as potential future targets. Target Audience Hematologists/Oncologists, Hematology/Oncology fellows, Hemato-pathologists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, Internal Medicine Residents. Learning Objectives At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to: • Recognize over-expressed signaling pathways in myeloid malignancies and indicate current and potential therapeutic targets. • Identify immunologic barriers created by myeloid malignancies and cite methods by which they can be overcome. • Distinguish disease and class specific treatments for myeloid malignancies. Registration Information Conference registration fee includes: Breakfast, breaks, lunch, and access to an online syllabus. Registration Fees $125.00 Physicians $75.00 Other Allied Health Professionals $25.00 Residents, Fellows, Students Conference Location The Providence Marriott Hotel 1 Orms Street, Providence, RI 02903 401-272-2400 | www.marriottprovidence.com/ Accreditation This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and Division of Hematology/Oncology at Rhode Island Hospital and The Miriam Hospital.
