About the Program:

Cancer immunotherapy is emerging as one of the most promising areas of cancer research and treatment. Overall, the goal of cancer immunotherapy is to stimulate a patient's immune system to recognize cancer cells as foreign and attack them. Data from recent phase III trials established immunotherapy as the new standard of care as first-line therapy in selected patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and irrespective of PD-L1 expression in second-line setting.  The aim of this webinar is to present the most recent data on checkpoint inhibitors and how this innovative approach is changing the paradigm for NSCLC therapy.

Accordingly, in this program we will:

  • illustrate how immunotherapy is changing the algorithm of NSCLC therapy;
  • address how to select appropriate patients for immunotherapy;
  • examine the future development of immunotherapy in NSCLC.

 After viewing this program, attendees will:

  • recognize the current role of immunotherapy in the first-line and second-line treatment of advanced stage NSCLC;
  • apply selection criteria to identify patients most likely to benefit from immunotherapy;
  • recognize the major clinical trials underway to further develop the utility of immune checkpoint inhibitors.

 Registration is taken on first-come, first served basis.

Following the didactic presentation, Dr. Cappuzzo and Dr. Mornex will answer questions and address comments from the audience.  There will be ample opportunity for Attendees to submit questions and comments via internet chat.

In order to receive CME credit, attendees must fill out a program evaluation.

CME INFORMATION:

DEFINITION OF CME

Continuing medical education consists of educational activities which serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships that a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public, or the profession. The content of CME is that body of knowledge and skills generally recognized and accepted by the profession as within the basic medical sciences, the discipline of clinical medicine, and the provision of health care to the public.

Financial/Commercial Relationships DISCLOSURES

A conflict of interest (COI) is created and exists when individuals in a position to control the content of CME (or their spouses/partners) have a relevant personal financial relationship within the past 12 months with a commercial interest that produces, markets, re-sells or distributes health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients that benefits the individual in any financial amount and therefore may bias their opinions and teachings. This may include receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds) or any other financial benefit. Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research and clinical trials), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership and other activities for which remuneration is received or expected. 

This IASLC CME educational activity was planned and developed to: uphold academic standards to ensure balance, independence, objectivity and scientific rigor; adhere to requirements to protect health information under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA); and include a mechanism to inform learners when unapproved or unlabeled uses of therapeutic products or agents are discussed or referenced.

IASLC CME Department assures that the planners/reviewers/authors/faculty/peer reviewers et al. conflicts of interest were identified, reviewed and resolved fromall individuals involved in the development or able to influence and control the content of this CME activity. The IASLC CME Department assures that disclosure is given prior to an educational activity being delivered to learners. Any individual who failed or refused to disclose relevant financial relationships was disqualified from this CME activity and removed from all IASLC CME activity presentations.

All commercial relationships and conflicts of interest that are identified are thoroughly vetted by IASLC Ethics Committee, CME Subcommittee and an independent reviewer. COI will be evaluated by the IASLC Board of Directors for fair balance, scientific objectivity of studies utilized in this activity and patient care recommendations. The IASLC CME Department is committed to providing its learners with high-quality CME activities and related materials that promote improvements or quality in health care and not a specific proprietary business interest of a commercial entity.

The intent of this disclosure is not to prevent a speaker with a relevant financial or other relationship from making the presentation, but rather to identify and resolve any conflicts of interest that may control the content of the activity. It is also intended that any potential conflict be identified openly so that the listeners have a full disclosure of the facts and may form their own judgments about the presentation. It remains for the audience to determine whether the speaker’s interests or relationships may influence the presentation with regard to exposition or conclusion.

All other faculty/contributors have reported no commercial affiliation associated with this conference or intent to reference off-label/unapproved uses of products or devices in their presentations.
