In this activity, breast cancer experts discuss the latest evidence on the use of CDK4 and 6 inhibitors in the management of patients with HR-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer. An essential overview of mechanisms of action of this therapeutic class, similarities/differences among the agents, and latest approvals/indications is provided, along with a summary and analysis of the current state of the science. Practicalities of clinical integration of the CDK4 and 6 inhibitors are also explored, with a focus on navigating the current treatment landscape and making individualized clinical decisions. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Describe the rationale for use, mechanism of action, and characteristics (including similarities/differences) of the CDK4 and 6 inhibitors in breast cancer, Analyze the latest efficacy (including OS), safety, and other key data from clinical trials assessing CDK4 and 6 inhibitors in breast cancer, and relevant implications for clinical practice, Discuss the relevant patient-, disease-, and treatment-related factors as well as promising prognostic/predictive biomarkers that could be used to guide selection of patients who would benefit from CDK4 and 6 inhibitors, Incorporate CDK4 and 6 inhibitors alone or in combination into treatment plans for appropriate patients with hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative advanced breast cancer according to relevant evidence, clinical guidelines, predictive factors, and patient needs and preferences, Manage treatment-related toxicities in patients with breast cancer undergoing treatment with CDK4 and 6 inhibitors to maintain optimal adherence and promote favorable outcomes.

    Finding the Path to Clinically Meaningful Outcomes Among Expanding Treatment Options in Renal Cell Carcinoma

    Go online to PeerView.com/KSB860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. In this virtual educational activity, Hans Hammers, MD, PhD, provides expert insight on the renal cell carcinoma (RCC) treatment landscape, including an overview of the latest treatment options and safety concerns in frontline therapy, and the use of dual immune checkpoint inhibitors and immunotherapy-tyrosine kinase inhibitor combinations. He also leads a case discussion with fellow Tri Le, MD, and a dialogue with a patient diagnosed with RCC, Robert Wilonsky. Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to: Evaluate current survival and quality of life evidence in the treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with targeted therapies, immune checkpoint inhibitors, and combination approaches, Select optimal frontline treatment options, such as dual checkpoint inhibition or targeted agents plus immune checkpoint inhibitors, for individual patients with advanced RCC based on the latest evidence, relevant patient- and disease-related characteristics, and patient values and preferences, Recommend effective treatment options for patients with pretreated advanced RCC through multiple lines of therapy that reflect considerations of prior treatment history and patient comorbidities, Implement strategies to mitigate and manage treatment-related complications in patients with RCC.
