5th Annual International Congress on Immunotherapies in Cancer™: Focus on Practice-Changing Application

5th Annual International Congress on Immunotherapies in Cancer™: Focus on Practice-Changing Application


Virtual Interactive Conference!

Saturday, December 12, 2020 - 8:00 AM – 3:25 PM EST

Overview

The diagnosis, risk stratification, and treatment of cancer have become increasingly personalized based on novel testing technologies and targeted agents that clinicians can apply based on predictive biomarkers. The advent of newer and less invasive approaches to diagnosis such as liquid biopsy is enabling clinicians to diagnose a wider variety of cancers at earlier stages. Novel immunotherapy agents used alone or in combination with other agents may further optimize outcomes for patients with advanced tumors. Clinicians require a practical working knowledge of biomarkers, immune pathways, and the mechanisms of action of immunotherapeutic strategies to effectively tailor optimal treatment for their patients.

The 5th Annual International Congress on Immunotherapies in Cancer™: Focus on Practice-Changing Application is specifically designed to aid clinicians in assessing the emerging data in cancer immunotherapy, including immune checkpoint blockade, metabolic blockade, vaccines, chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy, oncolytic viruses, and agonist costimulatory antibodies. The meeting will be divided into multiple sections—each focusing on different tumors and hematologic malignancies, including lung cancers, melanoma, genitourinary cancers, and hematology—and include a mix of brief presentations on new data, panel discussions, and case reviews that guide the implementation of core concepts into the clinic.

Benefits of Attending

  • Gain a better understanding of how the immune system is targeted to treat cancer
  • Improve your confidence in applying immunotherapeutic strategies to treat patients with cancer
  • Improve your use of molecular testing to guide treatments for patients with cancer
  • Become better prepared to monitor and manage treatment-related toxicities for patients who receive immunotherapy

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward medical oncologists, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists who treat patients with cancer. Participants are primarily those whose practice requires mastery and a critical understanding of the fundamental principles, pivotal published studies, and emerging information on immunotherapies and their evolving roles in the treatment of patients with cancer. Nurses, physician assistants, fellows, investigators, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of cancer are invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Explore the mechanisms of action for immunotherapeutic strategies and their application to cancer management
  • Outline clinical trial evidence on immunotherapy and the unmet clinical needs that these trials are designed to address
  • Apply key trial data to the management of solid and hematologic malignancies in multiple lines of care
  • Integrate evolving testing approaches to stratify risk and facilitate the identification of biomarkers related to the application of immunotherapeutic approaches
  • Implement practical strategies to monitor for and manage treatment-related toxicities among patients who receive single-agent and combination immunotherapeutic approaches to manage their cancer

Hot Topics

  • New and Emerging Tumor Biomarkers
  • Advances in Immunotherapies for Solid Tumors and Hematologic Malignancies
  • Managing the Treatment-Related Toxicities of Immunotherapy
