About this item

Description: Introduction of next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based mutation profiling has improved prognostic risk stratification of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), thus helping the selection of consolidation treatment option between allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HCT) and chemotherapy. While gene mutation-targeted therapeutic agents are being developed, thus providing a novel treatment option in the patients having mutations which are detected by NGS. Consequently NGS-based mutation profiling has been implemented in the clinical practice of AML therapy. An overview of currently available technology for MRD monitoring, including multiple color flow cytometry, PCR and NGS will be provided.

Start Date: Upon registration

Completion: Up to 52 weeks

Course/Activity Information

At the end of this webinar you will learn:

  • Clinical relevance of next-generation sequencing at the time of diagnosis of leukemia
  • Clinical relevance of next-generation sequencing based minimal residual disease monitoring in leukemia and after allogeneic stem cell transplantation
  • Single cell sequencing technology as a future diagnostic tool in leukemia
