Long-Acting Injectables for Schizophrenia: An Effective, Yet Often Underutilized Tool for Rapid Symptom Reduction and Restoration of Function

Schizophrenia is a serious and debilitating disorder that often poses a considerable challenge to clinicians. While long-acting injectables (LAIs) have emerged as a viable means to address patient nonadherence – often a component of schizophrenia management – clinicians often fail to implement the use of LAIs. Many times this is due to clinicians not being aware of updates such as the introduction of LAIs with increased dosing intervals, knowledge that is an important aspect of narrowing p...

Eradication of Minimal Residual Disease in Multiple Myeloma: The Role and Timing of ASCT

Advances in multiple myeloma (MM) management have equipped oncology health care providers with the tools and strategies for achieving treatment responses in up to 100% of patients, with as many as 80% reaching a complete response (CR). However, achieving a CR does not always predict long-term survival, and most patients ultimately relapse as a result of the persistence of minimal residual disease (MRD) after treatment. MRD cannot be detected with conventional, low-sensitivity evaluation method...

Current Obstacles in Myeloma Management: Debating the Evidence

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION The clinical multiple myeloma arena has seen significant advances in treatment, diagnosis, imaging, disease monitoring, and supportive care. The approval of several new agents has led to expanded criteria for earlier-stage diagnosis in some higher-risk patients with smoldering multiple myeloma (SMM), though questions remain regarding optimal treatment of other SMM patients. Treatment advances have improved median survival; nevertheless, prognosis remains poor for some pat...

MCL Patient Exam in the Era of Targeted Therapies: Workup, Prognosis, Treatment, and Monitoring

The rapid evolution of treatment advances in mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) make treatment a complex and challenging proposition. Though several randomized, controlled trials on the use of targeted agents in MCL have been conducted, there are limited published, randomized data providing definitive guidance on treatment selection, duration of treatment, management of treatment-related toxicities, and disease outcomes across different lines of therapy. This activity has been developed to help cl...

Eosinophilic Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis: Where Are We with Diagnosis and Management?

Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA) is a rare disseminating vasculitis that has a heterogeneous presentation. Because of this and its infrequent occurrence, it is often not considered in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with vasculitis. Diagnosis is further complicated by the lack of diagnostic criteria, causing most patients to experience diagnostic delays. In addition, there is little in the way of guidance for rheumatologists with respect to managing EGPA. ...
