Overview

Medical Crossfire®: Leveraging the Lung Cancer Team in Stage III NSCLC With Immuno-Oncology Strategies will feature expert perspectives on the application of immunotherapy as a component of treatment with curative intent in patients with non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This program will feature a multidisciplinary faculty including world-renowned experts in medical oncology, radiation oncology, and surgery. Current standards of care in patients with unresectable stage III NSCLC will be addressed, including the role of biomarkers and management of immune-related adverse events. Potential future roles for immunotherapy in stage I-III NSCLC will also be discussed, including incorporation into combined modality regimens and perioperative immunotherapy in patients with resectable disease. Throughout the program, expert Medical Crossfire® discussion panels will illustrate how experts address challenges in the implementation of immunotherapy for patients with locally advanced NSCLC. Be sure to join us for this exciting opportunity to improve your practice.
