Hem-Onc Assistant Professor Firas El Chaer, MD, was interviewed at the European Hematology Association Congress 2022 in Vienna, Austria on the results of a real-world analysis comparing the use of standard-dose anthracycline vs high-dose anthracycline vs anthracycline plus gemtuzumab ozogamicin in patients with favorable risk acute myeloid leukemia. Overall, the study found that there were no significant differences between the rates of complete remission (CR), CR with incomplete count recovery, relapse-free survival, overall survival, and toxicity profiles. It is still necessary to determine whether measurable residual disease  negativity rates are higher in patients treated with anthracycline and gemtuzumab ozogamicin.
