GI Oncology Expert Tumor Board: Leveraging Immune Biomarker Reports and Trial Evidence to Coordinate Care at Key Decision Points

GI Oncology Expert Tumor Board: Leveraging Immune Biomarker Reports and Trial Evidence to Coordinate Care at Key Decision Points


Friday, January 15, 2021

Live, Interactive Virtual Webcast!

5:00 PM – 7:00 PM EST

Overview

Gastrointestinal tumors are heterogeneous, challenging to treat successfully, and are among the most highly lethal tumor types. Given the poor outcomes in GI cancers there is a significant unmet need to identify improved treatment options. Although new treatment options and ongoing research have the potential to improve outcomes, patient selection and individualized therapy planning is of critical importance.

In this live virtual satellite symposium, expert treaters of GI malignancies will review key data regarding biomarker assessment and interpretation as well as clinical trial data for biomarker-guided treatment options. Through a combination of didactic presentations and case-based panel discussion the data will be placed in the context of clinical scenarios to aid in interpreting emerging data. With a focus on microsatellite instability/mismatch repair deficiency and PD-L1 expression, the panel will review testing methodologies and interpretation of results that guide the role of current and emerging immunotherapy treatment options for patients with GI tumors.

Benefits of Attending

  • Hear expert perspective on biomarker testing in GI cancers
  • Learn how to interpret and apply biomarker testing to guide care
  • Gain insight into biomarker-guided immunotherapies to treat GI cancers

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward all attendees of the 2021 Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium, including a global audience of medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and gastroenterologists interested in the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers. Nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment and management of patients with gastrointestinal cancers will be invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Explain the rationale for the biomarker-informed use of immunotherapeutic agents in patients with GI cancers
  • Evaluate the most recent clinical trial data on biomarker-guided immunotherapies in GI cancers
  • Apply evidence from biomarker-driven immunotherapy trials to real-world case scenarios in the management of patients with GI cancers
  • Implement proactive strategies to monitor and mitigate potential adverse events related to immunotherapeutic agents in patients with GI tumors
