This activity is designed to update physicians on recent data sets presented at the Chicago meeting, so that practitioners, who manage patients with lung cancer, can assess and consider how these findings apply to their clinical practices. Some key trial information was presented at the meeting on targeted agents in patients with actionable molecular markers, emerging biomarkers, how recent findings may impact decision making when sequencing therapies, and early-phase clinical trial results concerning the use of front-line immunotherapy in non-small cell lung cancer.
