BCOP Updates 2023: Asparaginase Aspirations: Updates in asparaginase products, supportive care and therapeutic drug monitoring

Type: IndividualFormat: On-demand

Asparaginase is a key component for the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia and lymphoma. Early discontinuation of asparaginase from a patient’s treatment regimen has been shown to adversely affect patient outcomes. However, due to the complicated manufacturing process of asparaginase products, resultant backorders and shortages led to development of new asparaginase products and new clinical practices. This session will focus on the new asparaginase products and current literature regarding strategies to limit asparaginase-associated toxicities, including premedication, therapeutic drug monitoring, desensitization, and dose capping.
