Medical Crossfire®: Navigating the Advent of Novel Targeted and Immunotherapeutic Approaches in Cholangiocarcinoma

Release Date: February 19, 2021
Expiration Date: February 19, 2022

Activity Overview

This online, on-demand virtual symposium brings together renowned experts in the treatment of cholangiocarcinoma. Novel targets based on understanding of tumor biology and pathophysiology have already shifted treatment paradigms for patients with specific biomarkers, such as mutated isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 and 2 (IDH1 and IDH2), fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR), microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H), and other mutated genes. In this educational program, these experts explore the latest data regarding unmet needs, advances in pathophysiology, and emerging therapeutic strategies for the management of cholangiocarcinoma across lines of care. This lively discussion will help place new developments into clinical context to help you optimize care for your patients with cholangiocarcinoma.

This educational activity is an archive of the live virtual symposium held on January 16, 2021.

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward a global audience of medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, hepatologists, pathologists, and gastroenterologists interested in the treatment of cholangiocarcinoma. Nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other health care professionals involved in the treatment and management of patients with cholangiocarcinoma are also invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Explain the biologic rationale that has informed recent clinical development of targeted and immunotherapeutic approaches for cholangiocarcinoma
  • Integrate key genomic and molecular testing strategies that allow for cholangiocarcinoma tumor characterization and inform decision-making for patients with these tumors
  • Apply practice-changing evidence on novel immunotherapies and targeted therapies to clinical scenarios encountered in cholangiocarcinoma management
  • Promulgate multidisciplinary approaches to identify and mitigate the impact of treatment-related toxicities in the care of patients with cholangiocarcinoma
