Key 2018/2019 Developments in Lymphoma and Thrombosis/Anticoagulation

 

Lecture Description

Each year, the American Society of Hematology (ASH) hosts a conference highlighting some of the latest hematologic oncology research. Join us as our speakers highlight some of the top presentations on Non-Malignant Hematology and Lymphoma from this year’s ASH conference.

Lecture Objectives:
  • Discuss the risk/benefit of prophylactic dose apixaban or rivaroxaban in ambulatory cancer patients starting chemotherapy, who have never had a DVT or PE.
  • Decide which anticoagulant is best to use in the severely obese patient and the patient who has had bariatric surgery who has an indication for full dose anticoagulation.
  • Describe the use of brentuximab vedotin as front line treatment of patients with CD30+ Peripheral T Cell Lymphoma.
  • Recognize that a short course of RCHOP chemotherapy alone may be effective in treatment of young patients with low risk DLBCL.
