Community Practice Connections™: The Latest Advances on MET Inhibitors for Treatment of Advanced NSCLC Along Lines of Care

Release Date: April 27, 2021
Expiration Date: April 27, 2022

Activity Overview

Molecular testing is critical in the treatment of patients with NSCLC. The detection of common mutations in lung cancer genes, such as EGFR, ALK, and KRAS, has led to significant improvements in survival. Further advancements in molecular testing technology in recent years have allowed for the detection of additional biomarkers and targeted therapy in patients with NSCLC, including those with mesenchymal-epithelial transition (MET) mutations.

This Community Practice Connections™ program provides an in-depth review of some of the key highlights from the Oncology Best Practice™: The Latest Advances on MET Inhibitors for Treatment of Advanced NSCLC Along Lines of Care, a series of interactive meetings hosted by leading cancer centers, large oncology practice groups, and community hospitals throughout the United States. This unique and engaging multimedia activity is ideal for the community-based clinician and focuses on the practical aspects of managing patients with NSCLC, putting recent clinical trial data into clinical context. The program is designed for those who did not attend the live meeting, and to help reinforce learnings for those who did.

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward a global audience of medical oncologists, pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, and pathologists, who treat and diagnose patients with NSCLC. Physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, researchers, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of NSCLC will be invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this activity, you should be better prepared to:

  • Describe the biological role of MET alterations in untreated NSCLC and as a resistance mechanism to EGFR-targeted therapy for NSCLC.
  • Delineate tumor tissue testing and liquid biopsy strategies that should be undertaken prior to frontline treatment and in relapsed NSCLC settings to inform clinical decision-making among patients with MET alterations.
  • Evaluate clinical trial safety and efficacy data on single-agent or combination strategies with MET-targeted agents that have been evaluated for the treatment of NSCLC.
