Naval Daver

New drugs for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) are constantly being developed. In this video, recorded at the 23rd Congress of the European Hematological Association (EHA) 2018, held in Stockholm, Sweden, Naval Daver, MD, of MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, discusses four new drugs that have recently been approved in the US. These are: midostaurin, a FLT3 inhibitor to be used with induction chemotherapy for FLT3-mutated AML; enasidenib, an IDH2 inhibitor for relapsed IDH2-mutated AML that can be taken orally; gemtuzumab ozogamicin, an antibody-drug conjugate that targets cells expressing CD33; and the combination of cytarabine and daunorubicin, which increases bone marrow penetration and survival compared to the previous standard of care.
