In this HealthTree Radio for AML show, Dr. Gabriel Mannis talks about treatment options for older adults with AML. He reviews his open clinical trial looking at what could be the first all-oral treatment for newly diagnosed older patients. The combination of venetoclax and decitabine with cedazuridine (ASTX727 or Inqovi) would provide older adults with AML and those who cannot tolerate standard intensive chemotherapy a much-needed alternative treatment option.
