ASCO: Medical Crossfire®: How to Use Liquid Biopsies in Oncology Care

ASCO: Medical Crossfire®: How to Use Liquid Biopsies in Oncology Care

Friday, May 31, 2019

Dinner and Registration: 6:30 PM – 7:00 PM

Chicago, IL 60605


The remarkable advances in care for patients with cancer go beyond the development of new agents, but also includes improved techniques to diagnose and characterize patients. While tissue-based biopsies still play an integral role in the diagnosis of multiple types of cancers, the development of less invasive, plasma-based biopsy techniques allows for a safer and more rapid approach to interrogate a patient’s disease. Furthermore, liquid biopsies raise the possibility of supplementing current approaches to response assessment in patients with solid tumors. However, the interpretation of molecular tests requires a new framework in order to best apply the results to patient care. This accelerated pace of clinical advancements for the diagnosis and treatment of patients presents a challenge for you to stay current and arm yourself with the clinical knowledge and insight necessary to optimize safety and efficacy outcomes. This cutting-edge symposium will bring together both experts in liquid biopsies and internationally recognized specialists in lung, breast, and gastrointestinal cancers to provide you with the knowledge and confidence to bring state-of-the-art techniques to your practice.

Benefits of Attending

  • Increase your understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of different biopsy approaches
  • Learn about clinical data regarding the performance of liquid biopsies in patients with lung, breast, and gastrointestinal malignancies
  • Gain insights into the potential for liquid biopsies to optimize care in patients with solid tumors
  • Network with your colleagues and leading clinical experts
