Updates on Liquid Biopsy for Advanced NSCLC: A Consensus Statement from the IASLC

IASLC Webinars
Overview

There have been major advancements in therapies and diagnostics for advanced-stage non-small-cell lung cancer over the past few years and these have led to meaningful increases in survival. One of the biggest advances is in therapeutics and diagnostics for molecular alterations that drive the oncogenic process. Tumor tissue has been the accepted standard biospecimen but there can be limitations with tissue, including collection and analysis. Thus, liquid biopsy, primarily blood plasma, represents a practical alternative source for determining tumor-derived somatic alterations.

This webinar will feature interactive case-based panel discussions to review the state of the field for liquid biopsy in NSCLC and discuss the standard of care recommendations for a global audience that were proposed in the recently published IASLC consensus statement on liquid biopsy.

CME Accredited

January 11, 2022 

10:00 AM EST/4:00 PM CET

At the end of the webinar, learners will be able to: 

  1. Review the updated IASLC Consensus Recommendations for the Use of Liquid Biopsy in NSCLC
  2. Recognize clinical situations when liquid biopsy may improve lung cancer patient outcomes 

This webinar is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, nurses and allied health professionals, pharmacists, patient advocates, and researchers who specialize in diagnostic radiology, pulmonary medicine, medical oncology, thoracic surgery, radiation oncology, pathology, and cancer research/basic sciences.
