Special Asia Webinar - A Molecular Era in Lung Cancer: 2014

April 17, 2014 - Recording now available.

This year is the 10th anniversary of the discovery of EGFR mutations, the first and most common driver oncogene in lung cancer and one that makes personalized therapy possible. Asian investigators have played an important role in this revolution and we have established a close collaborative link with international researchers. The teamwork has become fruitful and now in 2014 we have specific therapies targeting not only EGFR mutations, but also the ALK translocation mutations and alterations in VEGF/VEFGR that control angiogenesis. Thus, in this special Asia Webinar, invited global experts to spoke on these three important molecular targets. The invited speakers briefly summarized the key data that establish our current practice, described the most influential ongoing research and vision of the future development in each of these three areas.

View Dr. Tony Mok and an internationally-renowned faculty provide a concise and relevant view of the state-of-the-art of targeted, molecular -based therapy of lung cancer.

This one hour session addresses:

  • EGFR inhibition in 2014
  • Anti-angiogenesis in 2014
  • ALK inhibition in 2014

This was a highly interactive, productive, and educational webinar.
