Stephen V. Liu, MD - Find the Targets, Treat With Precision: Modern Principles and New Advances in Biomarker-Driven Lung Cancer Care
Go online to PeerView.com/UTP860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. In the modern era of precision oncology, comprehensive biomarker profiling of complex and heterogeneous tumors such as non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is essential for determining the best therapeutic approach for each patient. Patients with lung cancer who have targetable genomic alterations can derive remarkable benefit from targeted therapies, and the list of relevant targets and matched therapies continues to expand, including in early-stage disease settings. Unfortunately, molecular testing rates remain woefully inadequate, and even when testing is performed, many patients are not receiving optimally matched targeted therapy based on their tumor type. This PeerView educational video based on a recent live event and developed in collaboration with the LUNGevity Foundation brings leading lung cancer experts together to go beyond the basics and help navigate the increasing complexity of biomarker testing and targeted therapy in lung cancer. Expert discussions are framed with patient perspectives and illustrative case scenarios to highlight strategies for improving team-based collaboration, patient engagement, health equity, and biomarker-informed management plans to provide the best possible care to all patients. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Discuss the heterogeneity of NSCLC and mechanisms of action, efficacy, and safety of targeted therapies for established, new, and emerging molecular alterations in NSCLC, Apply current guidelines and best practices for biomarker testing to help inform targeted treatment decisions for patients with NSCLC, Integrate targeted therapies into individualized treatment plans for eligible patients with NSCLC in clinical practice or clinical trials, considering biomarker status; current evidence and guidelines; multidisciplinary perspectives; and patient needs, values, and preferences, Implement multidisciplinary and patient-centric approaches to ensure timely and accurate diagnosis, appropriate biomarker testing, individualized treatment, and equitable care of all patients with NSCLC.

Sarina Elmariah, MD, PhD, MPH - Addressing the Burden of Prurigo Nodularis: Expert Insight on Disease Pathogenesis and the Clinical Potential of Novel Therapeutic Options
Go online to PeerView.com/DTN860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. Prurigo nodularis (PN) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by intensely pruritic, hyperkeratotic nodules symmetrically distributed on the trunk and extremities. PN is defined by intense pruritus lasting ≥6 weeks, history of repeated scratching, and subsequent development of pruritic, elevated, firm, and nodular skin lesions, in a vicious itch–scratch cycle. The intense itch associated with PN leads to sleep disturbances and reduced social participation and work productivity, resulting in a drastically reduced quality of life and psychosocial disturbances. Unfortunately, these issues experienced among patients with PN are further compounded by the lack of effective treatment options. In this activity, based on a recent live educational symposium, a panel of experts addresses real-world questions and dilemmas faced by providers and the PN patients for whom they care. By providing practical guidance on how to effectively integrate the latest evidence and expert recommendations into real-world clinical scenarios, this activity provides participating clinicians with the necessary tools to effectively navigate the rapidly changing landscape for PN. Additionally, patient videos are utilized throughout to convey key information regarding the burden of PN and optimal management strategies. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Discuss the impact on quality of life and economic implications of prurigo nodularis (PN), Describe the pathophysiology of PN as it relates to clinically relevant disease mechanisms and novel therapeutic targets, Evaluate emerging treatment options for PN in the context of mechanism of action, efficacy, and safety, Treat PN in accordance with current evidence and expert recommendations, recognizing that an effective treatment approach should be based on clinical judgment and tailored to the individual needs of the patient.
Joseph Diaz, MD- Advances in Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria: Expert Insight on Translating Progress to Practice for Improved Symptom Control and Quality of Life
Go online to PeerView.com/HWY860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) is defined by the presence of recurrent urticaria, angioedema, or both, for a period of 6 weeks or longer. There are several theories regarding the pathogenesis of CSU, none of which have been conclusively established. CSU is a self-limited disorder in most patients, with an average duration of disease of 2 to 5 years; although active CSU significantly impairs quality of life. Second-generation H1 antihistamines (sgAHs) in standard dose are effective in less than 50% of CSU patients. Increasing the dose of sgAHs improves treatment responses; however, every third to fourth patient will still remain symptomatic. Omalizumab, an anti-IgE monoclonal antibody, may also be used for effective treatment, as well as cyclosporine. The current guideline-recommended treatment algorithm, though useful, is not perfect. The treatment of patients with CSU should be individualized and take into account the likelihood of patients to respond to therapy, based on predictors of response. By choosing treatment options tailored to a patient’s clinical or biochemical characteristics, treatments that are less likely to be effective may be avoided. In this activity, based on a live symposium held at the AAD Annual Meeting in Boston, a panel of experts will discuss the selection of adequate and relevant tests for the diagnostic workup in CSU and novel treatment options for CSU in the context of mechanism of action, efficacy, and safety. In addition, they will take a closer look at treating CSU in accordance with current evidence and expert recommendations, recognizing that as the era of personalized treatment emerges, the best use for newer agents will be achieved with a deeper understanding of both the phenotype and endotype of each CSU patient. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Select adequate and relevant tests for the diagnostic workup in chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) by obtaining a thorough medical history, Discuss how recent insights into the pathogenesis of CSU have led to the development of novel therapeutic targets, Describe novel treatment options for CSU in the context of mechanism of action, efficacy, and safety, Treat CSU in accordance with current evidence and expert recommendations, recognizing that as the era of personalized treatment emerges, the best use for newer agents will be achieved with a deeper understanding of both the phenotype and endotype of each CSU patient.
