Program Overview

The pathobiology of myelofibrosis continues to advance and the current understanding of myelofibrosis is complex. Guidelines and recommendations for the diagnosis of myelofibrosis, including the revised WHO criteria for myelofibrosis, is controversial. The clinical trial data on JAK2 inhibitor therapeutics has changed the clinical approach to patients with this illness. The expert faculty will emphasize the issues around the application of JAK2 inhibitors for the treatment of myelofibrosis in clinical practice.

The format of this CME webcast combines the presentation of current science with interactive expert panel analysis and learner participation. This allows for a deeper insight into the data and the bench-to-bedside process.

Target Audience

Hematologists-oncologists, oncologists, and other clinicians involved in the management and treatment of patients with myelofibrosis.
