Community Practice Connections™: 4th Annual European Congress on Immunotherapies in Cancer™

Release Date: December 20, 2019
Expiration Date: December 20, 2020
Media: Internet - based

Activity Overview

Immunotherapy has rapidly become a mainstay of cancer care across the spectrum of tumor types. The role of immunotherapy in the real-world setting has been informed by clinical trial data, but the expanding use of these treatment options in the clinic requires expert perspective to apply the available data to a broader patient population. In this activity, key highlights in immune-related adverse events and biomarker-driven care across melanoma, colorectal cancer, and lung cancer will be reviewed and discussed by expert faculty.

Benefits of Participating

  • Identify the latest updates on the role of immunotherapy in lung cancer, melanoma, and colorectal cancer
  • Gain expert perspective on the application of immunotherapy to patient populations that exist outside the spectrum of clinical trial eligibility
  • Learn about emerging data regarding ongoing research to incorporate biomarkers that identify patients most likely to benefit from immunotherapy
