2021 BCMA-Directed Therapies in Multiple Myeloma

December 4, 2021

2021 BCMA Directed Therapies in Multiple Myeloma, is a CME-accredited, half-day conference featuring leading experts in multiple myeloma who will provide a comprehensive overview of current state and the future implications of B-cell Maturation Antigen (BCMA) directed therapies in multiple myeloma (MM). The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge and the competence of learners to apply practice-changing clinical data and expert recommendations to optimize clinical outcomes for patients with MM. The program features in-depth discussion and analysis of the latest scientific findings and practice-changing advances in MM focusing on multiple immunotherapeutic options with BCMA as the lead target. Expert faculty will utilize didactics, case-based presentations, and related panel discussions on several current and emerging BCMA directed therapies including bispecific antibodies, CART and ADC available for MM patients, and how to sequence them in an effective manner to provide the best outcomes. The Binaytara Foundation will utilize a virtual format that includes both online recorded materials and live web-based interactive discussions to provide an easily accessible environment for learning, engagement, and dialogue with peers and presenters.
