Over the last several decades, advances in non-Hodgkin B-cell lymphoma management—including non–chemotherapy-based targeted therapies and new cytogenetic and molecular prognostic testing—have significantly improved patient survival. For clinicians who provide care to patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), keeping pace with these advances and incorporating them into practice can present a challenge.
In the format of an entertaining (but challenging!) interactive game, this edition of Scale, Bail, or Fail presents and discusses the recent drug approvals, emerging therapies, and new guideline recommendations that are changing the treatment landscape and further improving survival for CLL and MCL patients. This activity also features downloadable resources.

- Evaluate recent data on treatment advances and strategies for managing CLL and MCL and their potential implications for clinical practice
- Outline a treatment plan to achieve the deepest and most durable response while balancing the adverse effects and risk for toxicities in fit and unfit patients
