Updates in Oncogene-Driven NSCLC from Paris

Release date: 21-09-2022

Expiration date: 20-09-2023

Duration: 0.5 hours

The use of genomic profiling in tissue and liquid biopsy is expanding and provides a foundation for advancing precision medicine in lung cancer. New data are accumulating rapidly regarding the efficacy and safety of targeted therapy that has recently entered clinical practice, and the emerging strategies to target resistance mechanisms. In this Updates in Oncogene-Driven NSCLC, experts in the field discuss some of the new data on genomic profiling and targeted therapy in oncogene-driven NSCLC presented at the 2022 ESMO congress in Paris. Additionally, they will evaluate the potential impact of these findings on clinical practice and ongoing research.

This program is available with subtitles in the following languages:

This program is specifically designed for medical oncologists, pulmonologists, oncology fellows, and other healthcare professionals involved in the management of patients with lung cancer.

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe new data related to detection of resistance mechanism in EGFR mutant NSCLC and assess strategies to overcome resistance to third-generation EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors
  • Evaluate new findings on targeted therapies for patients with advanced NSCLC with rare molecular alterations, KRAS G12C and early-stage EGFR-mutant NSCLC, and how they impact clinical practice
