Event Description

IF YOU WOULD PREFER TO JOIN THE SHOW BY PHONE, PLEASE CALL (515) 602-9728

*you need to join by phone if you want to ask Dr. Sweet your questions.

Immunotherapy continues to be an expanding and evolving area of research for AML, with many drugs in development. One drug currently being studied is IMGN632, an antibody drug conjugate, that targets CD123-positive AML cells. IMGN632 has shown promising results in relapsed/refractory patients in previous AML trials. 

Join us live on Thursday, June 9th at 1 PM EST to learn from Dr. Kendra Sweet, an AML expert from Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida, about IMGN632, an exciting new immunotherapy investigational agent.

During the show, Dr. Sweet will discuss what IMGN632 is, how it is helping AML patients and the current trial she is participating in that is testing IMGN632 alone, as monotherapy, or when used in combination with other frontline AML drugs. Learn all about immunotherapy and the role it can play when added to existing AML treatment modalities. There will be time at the end of the show to directly ask Dr. Sweet your questions! 

Thank you to our episode sponsor, Bristol Myers Squibb.
