Targeting FLT3: an Update in the Management of FLT3-Mutated Acute Myeloid Lukemia (AML)
Originally presented at HOPA's 14th Annual Conference, March 2018.
In April 2017, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first tyrosine kinase inhibitor for the treatment of patients diagnosed with AML. The approval of midostaurin marks the beginning of targeted therapy development for this difficult-to-treat disease. Three other FLT3 inhibitors are currently in phase 2 trials for AML and show promising efficacy, which may dramatically change the treatment paradigm for this disease. This session will provide an overview of FLT3-mutated AML, including currently available treatment, first- and second-generation inhibitors, mechanisms of resistance, and future directions. The session is directed to the advanced practitioner.
