    "Brendon Stiles, MD - Immunotherapy as a Component of Multimodal Therapy in Locally Advanced and Earlier Stages of Lung Cancer: Rationale, Evidence, and Implications for the Multidisciplinary Team"

    "Brendon Stiles, MD - Immunotherapy as a Component of Multimodal Therapy in Locally Advanced and Earlier Stages of Lung Cancer: Rationale, Evidence, and Implications for the Multidisciplinary Team"

    Go online to PeerView.com/WHA860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. The evidence base for use of immunotherapy in lung cancer is expanding at a rapid pace, and immune checkpoint inhibition has become a new standard of care after chemoradiation in stage III, locally advanced, unresectable non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The effectiveness of immunotherapy as a component of multimodal therapy has raised the possibility of further expanding this treatment approach to earlier stages of lung cancer, including as neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapy for patients with resectable disease. A range of novel single-agent and combination immunotherapeutic approaches are being explored, and results are eagerly anticipated. However, many challenges and questions related to the optimal use of immunotherapies in earlier stages of lung cancer remain. For example, which patients are most likely to benefit from immune-based therapies? What is the optimal way to individualize therapy and coordinate care among different specialists, including thoracic surgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists? How should the various adverse effects associated with these emerging treatment modalities be managed? This educational on-demand activity based on a recent live webcast features expert instruction and practical guidance for how to effectively navigate the rapidly changing and complex immunotherapy landscape in lung cancer, including in earlier disease settings as a component of multimodal therapy. Access the activity to learn more about this timely, important topic, and what the implications are for clinical practice. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Characterize the mechanisms of action of immune checkpoint inhibitors and other novel cancer immunotherapies, and the rationale for using immunotherapy as a component of multimodal therapy in earlier stages of lung cancer, Discuss the current and evolving immunotherapy landscape and state of the science in lung cancer, including in locally advanced and earlier stages of NSCLC, Review key clinical trials assessing immunotherapies and immune-based combinations in stage III and earlier stages of lung cancer, and available data from such trials, Determine the best treatment approaches for patients with stage III or earlier stages of lung cancer as part of clinical practice or clinical trials based on the latest evidence, recommendations, patient needs and preferences, and effective multidisciplinary collaboration and coordination of care.

Ramalingam, MD, FACP, FASCO, provides a brief recap of the latest practice-changing data informing the use of an expanding arsenal of immune checkpoint inhibitors and combinations in NSCLC, as well as the evolving evidence on immunotherapies, transcription inhibitors, and other novel treatment approaches in SCLC. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Assess the efficacy/safety profiles and clinical roles of approved and investigational immunotherapies, combinations, and other novel therapies in lung cancer, including NSCLC and SCLC, Evaluate the roles of predictive biomarkers (PD-L1, TMB) and other relevant disease-, and treatment-related factors as well as patient needs and preferences that should be taken into consideration as part of individualized treatment planning and selection for patients with lung cancer, Describe key new research directions and clinical trials evaluating cancer immunotherapy biomarkers, rational immunotherapy-based treatment strategies, and other emerging therapies in different subtypes and settings of NSCLC and SCLC to refine, expand, and maximize the use of optimal therapies throughout the disease continuum, Educate patients with lung cancer and their caregivers about cancer immunotherapies and other treatment options to help them become well-informed participants in their care, Implement individualized, evidence-based, patient-centric treatment plans for patients with lung cancer.
