Acute Myeloid Leukemia – Current Treatment – Current Treatment: Physician Insights

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most common acute leukemia in adults. Historically, the prognosis has been poor. Chemotherapy backbones have long dominated treatment, but there is an ongoing shift toward the use of targeted therapies. Their approval has broadened the current treatment arsenal, which now includes the CD33-targeting antibody-drug conjugate Mylotarg (Pfizer), the BCL-2-targeting agent Venclexta (AbbVie / Genentech), the SHH inhibitor Daurismo (Pfizer), and the IDH2 inhibitor Idhifa (Servier / Bristol Myers Squibb). In July 2023, the FDA approved Daiichi Sankyo’s Vanflyta for FLT3-mutation-positive AML. It now competes directly with Rydapt (Novartis) in the newly diagnosed intensive induction setting. Additionally, the December 2022 approval of the IDH1 inhibitor Rezlidhia (Rigel Pharmaceuticals) has had an impact on the market through its direct competition with Tibsovo (Servier) in the relapsed/refractory (R/R) setting.
