Update on Therapeutic Advances in T-Cell Lymphoma: Live Webinar

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

T-cell lymphoma is a rare but deadly hematologic malignancy that is difficult to diagnose and has limited treatment options. Join us for this 2021 update to gain expert perspectives on:

- Differential diagnosis
- Clinical studies supporting the efficacy and safety of novel agents
- Emerging combination and sequential treatment strategies

In addition, our expert faculty provide evidence-based advice regarding:
- Tailoring treatment plans to individual patients
- Managing treatment-related adverse events
- Applying best practices for supportive care and patient safety
- And much more!

Due to the high demand for this live webinar, we are pleased to offer 2 dates and times:

Thursday, March 11, 2021 @ 12:00 PM EST
Monday, March 15, 2021 @ 3:00 PM EST

Statement of Need:

Each year, 74,240 new cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma are diagnosed and 19,940 people die of the disease (ACS, 2020). Among these cases, 12% to 15% are classified as peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCL), which comprise more than 10 different T-cell lymphomas (Zain, 2020). The diagnosis of PTCL is challenging, and 26% are categorized as PTCL, not otherwise specified (PTCL-NOS). Prognosis is poor, with a 5-year overall survival of less than 30% (Zain, 2020). Other less common subtypes of TCL include anaplastic large cell lymphoma, adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL), angioimmunoblastic TCL, and cutaneous TCL (CTCL) (NCCN, 2020b). The most common CTCL subtype is mycosis fungoides (MF), which is generally indolent; however, because it frequently mimics symptoms associated with other skin conditions, it can be difficult to diagnose in its early stages. Over time, MF can spread across the skin; in advanced stages, it can demonstrate extracutaneous involvement, invading the lymph nodes, blood, or occasionally other organs (NCCN, 2020a). Some patients develop S├ęzary syndrome, a rare, aggressive form of MF that affects both the skin and peripheral blood. Furthermore, CTCL is often resistant to chemotherapy, and the treatment of patients with advanced disease remains challenging (Alpdogan et al, 2020).

TARGET AUDIENCE

Hematologist/oncologists, oncology advanced practitioners, oncology nurses, and other health care professionals involved in the treatment of patients with T-cell lymphoma (TCL).

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

1.) Apply guideline recommendations for the differential diagnosis of TCL
2.) Evaluate emerging efficacy and safety data on novel therapies for newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory TCL
3.) Apply strategies for managing adverse events associated with novel TCL therapies
