Presented by Aziz Nazha, MD. Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is generally a hematologic malignancy of older adults, with approximately 60% of newly diagnosed AML patients being 60 or older. Older patients pose unique therapeutic challenges that have been largely unmet to date. This activity will review and discuss decision-making strategies outlining when and how to treat this patient population in your practice. In addition, Dr. Nazha will provide an overview of the current treatment paradigms available, as well as agents currently approved or under investigation which may have a potential role in the outcome of the older patient with AML.
