In today’s episode, sponsored by GlycoMimetics, we had the pleasure of speaking with Michael Andreeff, MD, PhD, about the evaluation of uproleselan for the treatment of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Dr Andreeff is a professor of medicine and holds the Paul and Mary Haas Chair in Genetics at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.
In our exclusive interview, Dr Andreeff discussed the novel, first-in-class E-selectin antagonist uproleselan, the rationale for targeting E-selectin in patients with AML, how uproleselan could amplify the effects of chemotherapy in the treatment of these patients, and other ongoing research evaluating uproleselan in combination with other agents.
