During the 61st American Society of Hematology (ASH) meeting in Orlando, US, the AML Global Portal were delighted to speak to Jorge Sierra, Hospital Santa Creu I Sant Pau, Barcelona, ES. We asked: What is the impact of genetic characterization and MRD assessment on the prognosis and treatment of AML?

Jorge Sierra discusses the relevance of genetic and cytogenetic characterization in patients with AML and explains that these are important factors to determine patient prognosis and treatment. He also talks about studies that use MRD status to guide patient treatment pathways and to monitor relapse. Jorge Sierra discusses the risk classifications established by the European Leukemia Net to guide treatment.
