The XVII International Workshop on Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (iwCLL) in New York, New York, offers the opportunity for industry-supported satellite symposia (ISS) to be held in conjunction with its biennial meeting. The symposia play an important role in supporting the needs of iwCLL participants by offering additional educational opportunities. Listed below are the dates, times, agendas, and additional program information for the confirmed ISS symposia being held during iwCLL 2017.

Exploring the CLL Treatment Tool Kit: A Master Class on Modern Therapy, Clinical Trials, and Precision Medicine


Chair and Faculty:

William G. Wierda, MD, PhD – Panel Chair and Presenter

Asher A. Chanan-Khan, MD – Co-Presenter

Matthew S. Davids, MD, MMSc – Co-Presenter


Program Overview:

The recent emergence of multiple, novel agent classes in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) has expanded the hematology-oncology professional’s “tool kit” for patient care. Expanded options for treatment mean more choices for clinicians and more opportunities to fine-tune therapy to the needs of a given patient. PeerView’s latest live event will offer professionals a “Master Class” on the meaning of precision medicine in CLL in the modern era, including insights on how to select and sequence novel agent classes (BTK inhibitors, Bcl2 -targeting agents, and next-generation anti-CD20 antibodies), while addressing key practical considerations such as prognostic assessment and adverse event management. In addition, our panel of experts will offer case-based illustrations of a more tailored approach to therapy in CLL and review important ongoing clinical trials that may further crystallize the use of newer therapeutics in the CLL setting.

This CME/CE/CPE activity is jointly provided by Penn State College of Medicine and PVI, PeerView Institute for Medical Education; this activity is also coprovided by Medical Learning Institute, Inc.
This activity is supported by an educational grant from Pharmacyclics LLC, an AbbVie Company, and Janssen Biotech, Inc, administered by Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC.
