CFS: Medical Crossfire®: How Can Liquid Biopsies Drive Precision Care in Frontline NSCLC?

CFS: Medical Crossfire®: How Can Liquid Biopsies Drive Precision Care in Frontline NSCLC?

Consensus guidelines recommend universal reflex testing for oncogenic mutations in NSCLC, and there are now at least 8 targetable mutations in lung cancer with more than 20 approved treatments. Optimizing testing methods to get patients on targeted treatment as quickly as possible is crucial, and navigating tissue collection and testing continually evolves with emerging data regarding these options. In the frontline setting of NSCLC, clinicians must have a level of comfort with the use of short-turnaround liquid biopsy, either in combination with tissue biopsy or as the only available test when patients cannot undergo tissue biopsy. Liquid biopsy also has an important role in monitoring changes in mutational characteristics over time and guiding treatment in later lines of therapy. In this Medical Crossfire® program, the expert panel will review the latest data regarding mutational analysis, targeted therapy, and the challenges and advantages associated with liquid biopsy testing techniques. Through panel discussion and case-based analyses, standards of care and emerging options to improve outcomes in NSCLC will be placed into clinical context to help you optimize care for your patients.

Benefits of Attending

  • Hear the latest strategies used by experts to apply liquid biopsy in the care of patients with NSCLC
  • Learn when liquid biopsy should be used in practice and how this is evolving
  • Benefit from expert discussion on how to overcome challenges in applying liquid biopsy techniques to benefit your patients
  • Interact with the expert panel and your peers to address your questions about liquid biopsy in managing NSCLC

Target Audience

This educational activity is intended for medical oncologists, pathologists, and fellows who treat patients with lung cancer. Nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of lung cancer will be invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Analyze the results of clinical studies to evaluate the strengths and limitations of this technology versus conventional tissue biopsy
  • Examine the scientific rationale for use of liquid biopsy technology to inform frontline clinical decision making in the management of lung cancer
  • Contrast available and emerging testing technology, including sensitivity, specificity, and relevance in the frontline management of NSCLC
  • Summarize clinical evidence regarding specific testing modalities to individualize targeted treatment of NSCLC in the frontline setting
