When it comes to managing B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), there’s been growing discussion about the prognostic value of minimal/measurable residual disease (MRD). Research has found that the presence of MRD is a strong predictor of relapse, which may lead to poor patient outcomes. These findings not only support the importance of MRD testing, but treatment for those who test MRD(+).1
Join Dr. Jennifer Caudle as she hosts Dr. Daniel DeAngelo, a medical oncologist from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, to discuss MRD testing and using BLINCYTO® (blinatumomab) for the treatment of patients with CD19-positive B-cell precursor ALL who are MRD(+) after induction therapy.2
In this discussion, Dr. DeAngelo will review:

ALL = acute lymphoblastic leukemia; MRD = minimal/measurable residual disease; MRD(+) = minimal/measurable residual disease positive.
