Medical Crossfire®: How to Use Liquid Biopsies Throughout the Lung Cancer Treatment Continuum will update oncology healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with lung cancer by providing expert guidance, interpretation, and opinions on the importance and impact of liquid biopsy testing through multiple lines of therapy. This activity features 4 modules, which will present multiple expert points-of-view on this rapidly evolving area of molecular testing. In Module 1, the role of tumor genotyping in treatment decision making will be discussed, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of conventional tissue-based testing. Module 2 will outline the scientific basis for liquid-based molecular testing, including current data on the levels of concordance between liquid- and tissue-based genotyping. Module 3 will incorporate case-based discussion on the real-world application of liquid biopsies, including issues regarding turnaround time, sensitivity, and specificity. Module 4 will address outstanding questions and potential future applications of liquid-based biopsies.
This educational activity is intended for medical oncologists, pathologists, and fellows who treat patients with cancer, as well as nurse practitioners and nurses. Physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of cancer will be invited to participate.
