Leveraging Novel Antibody-Drug Conjugates in a World of Evolving Treatment Paradigms: A Pan Tumor Perspective

Release Date: November 30, 2020
Expiration Date: November 30, 2021

Activity Overview

This online, on-demand virtual symposium brings together oncology thought leaders from around the globe to discuss the evolving world of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) in cancer treatment. The targeting of tumor cell surface antigens remains a key therapeutic approach in oncology. ADCs combine the specificity of a tumor-targeting antibody with a cytotoxic payload. Several ADCs have been approved, with additional agents in development that target an expanding range of tumor antigens, including HER2, HER3, and Trop-2, as well as several other molecules. In this educational program, these experts discuss the expanding therapeutic options provided by ADCs, how to optimize the use of these agents in clinical practice, and best approaches for biomarker assessment and management of adverse events.

This educational activity is an archive of the live, virtual symposium held on November 21, 2020.
