Symposium Overview

During our third symposium, we brought together national and international acclaimed leukemia scientists to discuss recent advances in clonal hematopoiesis, low/high risk myelodysplastic syndrome, targeted AML therapy with emphasis in novel HMA plus BCL-2 inhibitor combination, advances in P53 myeloid malignancies therapies.

During our 2021 symposium, we incorporated state-of- the-art lectures on post induction HMA treatment, mechanisms of FLT3 inhibition resistance and how to manage elderly AML patients. A highly interactive update on HMA plus BCL-2 inhibitor therapy was followed by a panel discussion on post induction AML maintenance.

Additionally, the symposium provided important novel development in MDS and AML pathogenesis leading to unique opportunity for clinical trial design ideas.
