Evolving Immuno-Oncology Strategies in Stage III NSCLC: A Focus on Recent Evidence and Key Next Steps in Trials

Evolving Immuno-Oncology Strategies in Stage III NSCLC: A Focus on Recent Evidence and Key Next Steps in Trials

Thursday, August 19, 2021

Live, Interactive Webcast!

7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT


The introduction of immunotherapy into the standard of care for unresectable stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has led to substantial improvements in patient outcomes, which, in turn, have spurred research into methods for optimizing patient and therapy selection and therapy timing.
In this live, online symposium, experts in the management of NSCLC will discuss up-to-date findings and recommendations for the treatment of locally advanced, unresectable disease and emerging principles for the use of immunotherapy in these patients. These evidence-based presentations will be supplemented with case discussions to help participants contextualize and apply recent data in their practice.

Benefits of Attending

  • Hear from lung cancer experts on how to use immunotherapy in locally advanced NSCLC
  • Find out how you should be using biomarkers to select immunotherapy for stage III disease
  • Discover what the future holds for concurrent immunotherapy and definitive therapy
  • Optimize management of treatment-related toxicities in stage III NSCLC

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists and cancer researchers. Other health care professionals involved in the study or treatment of lung cancer are also invited to participate.

Hot Topics

  • Consolidation immunotherapy for stage III NSCLC
  • Concurrent immunotherapy and chemoradiotherapy in stage III NSCLC
  • Biomarkers of response to immunotherapy
  • Coordination of multidisciplinary care for patients with locally advanced NSCLC

Learning Objectives

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

  • Describe the biology of tumor immunology and the scientific rationale for immune checkpoint inhibition in the management of stage III NSCLC
  • Integrate clinical trial evidence to optimize the use of immune checkpoint inhibitors in the treatment of patients with stage III NSCLC and describe ongoing studies investigating novel uses of immuno-oncology strategies
  • Evaluate biomarkers for therapeutic selection in patients with NSCLC
  • Discuss approaches to mitigate and manage the impact of immune-related adverse events in patients with NSCLC who receive immune checkpoint inhibitors
