Medical Crossfire®: Novel Applications of Liquid Biopsies Across Cancer Care

Medical Crossfire®: Novel Applications of Liquid Biopsies Across Cancer Care


June 17, 2020

Scientific Session: 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM EDT

Location:
Virtual Platform

Novel Applications of Liquid Biopsies Across Cancer Care: Program Overview:

The advent of improved sequencing technologies and platforms has rapidly expanded the understanding of genomic alterations that drive tumor biology. Accordingly, in recent decades there have been numerous targeted agents for individual alterations introduced as treatment options across solid tumors, and there are many more agents in ongoing clinical trials. Clinicians treating patients with solid tumors, especially lung, breast, and gastrointestinal malignancies, are faced with the challenge of determining how and when to perform molecular testing on their patients and how to utilize that information to optimize treatment planning.

In this live webcast, the expert faculty panel will review emerging data and new treatment options for patients with targetable molecular alterations. Key topics will include how to use blood-based tests for diagnosis and treatment planning via testing of circulating tumor cells or cell free DNA, how liquid biopsy can aid in monitoring response or identifying resistance mechanisms, and emerging targeted therapeutics. An interactive Medical Crossfire® discussion in the context of clinical scenarios will aid in applying new data to the care of your patients, and provide you with the opportunity to submit your questions to the expert panel.
