Molecular diagnostic stratification of AML - integrating molecular biomarkers into clinical diagnostics in AML
Online conference registration is due to close shortly. If online registration has closed and you would like to attend the AML workshop, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place.
The aim of this workshop is to highlight advances in defining pre treatment genomic variation with prognostic relevance in AML together with patient specific, post treatment indicators of response to induction therapy to greater refine risk adapted management of AML.
AML is genetically a highly heterogenous disease. Defining individual genetic markers or networks of markers with prognostic significance and their respective relationship to pre treatment clinical characteristics presents a major challenge to diagnostic laboratories offering a haemato oncology service. In addition the potential to integrate panels of pre treatment parameters with post treatment assessment of minimal residual disease levels to improve risk stratification will be considered.
