Oncology Best Practice™ Series: Key Questions for the Community on the Detection and Treatment of MRD

Oncology Best Practice™ Series: Key Questions for the Community on the Detection and Treatment of MRD


October 28, 2021

Overview

Minimal residual disease (MRD) has emerged as a valuable tool in hematologic malignancies, helping clinicians to both predict prognosis and individualize therapy. In patients with solid tumors, MRD testing using cell-free nucleic acids released from malignant cells are being studied for similar roles in predicting patient outcomes and helping to select therapy. Technological advances have resulted in the use of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) as a way to examine the tumor genome, monitor treatment response, detect early relapse, assess the development of drug resistance, and evaluate MRD. 
 
In this dinner meeting program, experts will review the emergence of MRD as a tool in the management of patients with solid tumors. The results  of MRD research across tumor types, and the latest testing methods and technologies used to assess MRD will be reviewed. The clinical impact of using MRD to assess early relapse will be examined. In addition, the audience is invited to bring patient cases to review the role, or potential role, of MRD in the care of patients with a variety of solid tumors, including lung, colorectal, and skin cancers.

Benefits of Attending

  • Review tests and technologies available for MRD testing
  • Analyze the role of MRD in monitoring treatment response and detecting early relapse
  • Discuss cases from the audience regarding the potential role of MRD in the management of patients with solid tumors

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward academic and community-based oncologists, pathologists, hematologists, nurse practitioners (NPs), pharmacists, physician assistants (PAs) and other health care professionals involved in the detection and treatment of MRD.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Assess evolving methods to predict relapse among patients with solid tumors
  • Explain the rationale underlying the application of ctDNA testing technologies to identify MRD among patients with solid tumors 
  • Describe clinical trial findings in which MRD has been used to monitor patients for early relapse or response in solid tumor settings, including gastrointestinal malignancies
  • Determine how recent evidence in the use of MRD can be considered in real-world clinical scenarios in which patients with solid tumors are monitored for risk of recurrence or early relapse
