MBCC: Medical Crossfire: Leveraging PARP Inhibition Strategies in the Contemporary Treatment of Breast Cancer

MBCC: Medical Crossfire®: How Do We Leverage PARP Inhibition Strategies in the Contemporary Treatment of Breast Cancer?

Friday, March 9, 2018
7:00 AM – 8:30 AM

Breakfast and Registration: 6:30AM – 7:00AM

Pre-clinical and clinical trial findings pertaining to therapeutic advancements with PARP inhibition in the medical management of patients with breast cancer represent one of the hottest topics in the field. As the evidence base concerning the use of PARP inhibitors continues to grow, there is a great need for clinicians to understand the mechanistic rationale for using PARP inhibitors, as well as factors that may influence the effectiveness of these treatment modalities for patients with breast cancer. Clinicians also need to be cognizant of recent clinical trial evidence that may help to optimize the potential application of PARP inhibitor strategies, including methods to identify and mitigate the impact of treatment-related toxicities. New roles for these therapies are also the focus of numerous ongoing clinical trials.

The dynamic and interactive format of this Medical Crossfire® will focus participants on key aspects regarding the influence of PARP inhibitors on the evolving treatment landscape for patients with breast cancer, and will feature leading clinical experts in the field. This Medical Crossfire® activity will include didactic presentation, interactive case-based discussion among expert panelists, and opportunities for participants to engage faculty with their questions and methods to practically apply learnings from the meeting to their most difficult breast cancer cases.
