17 October 2022 – Live Satellite Symposium: Solving the Puzzles for B-Cell Malignancies – Navigating the Place of BTK Inhibitors Today and Tomorrow
12:30 pm – 2:00 pm ET
18:30 – 20:00 CET

Event Registration

CLLAN and Medscape are inviting to an interactive discussion on the role of BTK inhibitors in treating B-cell malignancies – how BTK inhibitors fit into the treatment landscape and the clinical evidence supporting their use. CLLAN´s chair, Nick York, is sitting in the panel of experts and will be representing the patient voice.

The treatment landscape of B-cell malignancies continues to evolve, with new and novel drugs being investigated and added to the armamentarium. Since their introduction, Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitors have dramatically changed the treatment of B-cell malignancies, emerging as one of the backbones of treatment. The high anti-lymphoma activity of BTK inhibitors has led to approvals to treat chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), Waldenström macroglobulinemia (WM), marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) and mantle cell lymphoma (MCL).

Join our multidisciplinary panel of experts, including hematologists, a specialist nurse, and a patient advocate, as they guide us in an interactive discussion on the role of BTK inhibitors in treating B-cell malignancies – how BTK inhibitors fit into the treatment landscape and the clinical evidence supporting their use. The panel will also explore patient perspectives in the management of their disease using BTK inhibitors, with emphasis on the needs of the patient, and the importance of meeting their treatment goals.

Registration Link

This activity is intended for an international audience of non-US hematologists/oncologists, pathologists, cardiologists and other healthcare providers involved in the care of patients with B-cell malignancies.

The goal of this activity is that learners will be better able to use BTK inhibitors for the individual patient with B-cell malignancies.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will:

Have increased knowledge regarding the
– Latest clinical data with BTK inhibitors for B-cell malignancies
– Factors informing treatment decisions with BTK inhibitors for B-cell malignancies

Have greater competence related to
– Using BTK inhibitors to manage patients with B-cell malignancies

Demonstrate greater confidence in their ability to
– Integrate the latest data with BTK inhibitors into the management of patients with B-cell malignancies
