Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Review recent advances in our understanding of the underlying pathophysiology of GVHD and the rationale for the use of novel therapies for the treatment of patients with or at risk of developing GVHD
  • Evaluate current and emerging clinical trial data evaluating the use of recently FDA-approved agents for acute, chronic, steroid-naive, or steroid-refractory GVHD
  • Recognize adverse events and toxicities associated with prophylactic strategies and therapeutic approaches and use this information to develop supportive care plans for patients with GVHD
  • Identify patients at risk of GVHD who are candidates for ongoing clinical trials evaluating emerging options for prophylaxis and management
