Community Practice Connections™: Leveraging Tumor and Immune Biology in Endometrial Cancer: A New Era of Rational Treatment Design

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

Activity Overview

In patients with uterine corpus cancers, the American Cancer Society projects a total of 66,570 new diagnoses and 12,940 deaths in 2021. Advances in an understanding of the pathobiology associated with endometrial cancer has provided new targets, which have led to the development of novel agents and combinations involving immunotherapy, tyrosine kinase inhibitors, and agents for specific genomic alterations.

This Community Practice Connections program provides an in-depth review of some of the key highlights from The Society of Gynecologic Oncology 2021 Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer, held in March 2021. This unique and engaging multimedia activity is ideal for the community-based clinician and focuses on the practical aspects of managing patients with endometrial cancer, placing recent clinical trial data into clinical context. The program is designed for those who did not attend the live meeting and would help to reinforce learnings for those who did.
