Physicians’ Education Resource® to Present Optimizing Outcomes Through Stem Cell Mobilization as a Satellite Symposium Adjunct to the Transplantation and Cellular Therapy Meetings (TCT)

January 22, 2019

CRANBURY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 22, 2019--Physicians’ Education Resource ® (PER ® ), a leading resource for continuing medical education (CME), will host a CME-accredited activity, Optimizing Outcomes Through Stem Cell Mobilization: Applying Evidence to Patients With Multiple Myeloma and Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, on Friday, Feb. 22, at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas. The educational program will be chaired by Shaji Kumar, M.D., professor of medicine, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, and consultant, division of hematology, department of internal medicine, Mayo Clinic.

This activity is a satellite symposium held adjunct to the TCT (Transplantation and Cellular Therapy Meetings). Formerly the BMT Tandem Meetings, are the combined annual meetings of the American Society of Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ASBMT) and CIBMTR.

“We are excited to present this new CME-certified activity that incorporates recent clinical data to optimize individualized approaches for autologous stem cell transplantation mobilization among patients with hematologic malignancies,” said Phil Talamo, president of PER ®. “Attendees who participate in this symposium will learn how to personalize decision-making to optimize outcomes for their patients with hematologic malignancies.”

Faculty members for the educational activity include the following clinical experts:

Sergio A. Giralt, M.D., FACP, chief, adult bone marrow transplant service, Melvin Berlin Family chair in multiple myeloma, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Paul J. Shaughnessy, M.D., director, adult blood and marrow stem cell transplant program, Methodist Physician Practices, and assistant professor of medicine, University of Texas Health Science Center.

This highly interactive educational CME program will address the rapidly evolving treatment landscape for hematologic malignancies such as multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has remained a cornerstone approach for the management of many patients with these conditions, and techniques for optimal stem cell mobilization continue to be investigated, with the goals of minimizing the burden on the patient and maximizing the likelihood of successful stem cell collection for anticipated procedures.

During this exciting case-based format, Kumar along with Giralt and Shaughnessy will review the latest clinical data to help attendees apply the information effectively to the management of their patients who may be candidates for HSCT. Key decision points pertaining to transplantation and stem cell mobilization will also be reviewed in depth during the activity.
