Alexander Drilon, MD - Uncovering Gene Fusions and Other Key Genomic Alterations in Lung, Thyroid, Colon, Breast, and Other Solid Tumors to Enable All Patients to Gain the Full Benefits of Targeted Treatment
Go online to PeerView.com/PUE860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. Gene fusions and other key alterations (NTRK, RET, and others) represent actionable targets in a substantial proportion of patients with solid tumors. Appropriate biomarker testing is crucial to identify all alterations that are treatable with current or investigational targeted therapies. Multikinase tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have been used to treat such alterations, but they have limited efficacy. Therefore, next-generation TKIs with greater selectivity have been developed and approved for tumor-agnostic indications (such as NTRK alterations) and for specific tumor types (such as RET alterations in lung and thyroid cancers). These newer therapies have demonstrated impressive efficacy with favorable safety profiles, and their use can significantly improve patient outcomes and quality of life. The tumor-agnostic indications are anticipated to expand further, and novel options are also emerging for patients who have developed resistance to standard RET- and TRK-targeted therapies. In this PeerView educational offering, experts on gene fusion-positive solid tumors provide a cutting-edge update on the role and relevance of gene fusions and other key alterations in solid tumors. These KOLs offer guidance on how to best identify patients with gene alterations and discuss accumulating clinical evidence for the best use of targeted therapies, while also providing practical guidance for optimizing multidisciplinary and interprofessional strategies for biomarker testing and use of targeted therapy across solid tumors harboring NTRK and RET fusions and other actionable alterations. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Describe the role of NTRK, RET, ALK, and other key genomic alterations in the oncogenesis of solid tumors, the importance of appropriate biomarker testing to identify patients with these alterations, and clinical evidence supporting the use of matched targeted therapies to optimize patient outcomes; Collaborate with the broader cancer care team to identify patients for biomarker testing, select appropriate tests to capture all relevant genomic alterations, including gene fusions, and interpret testing results to guide treatment selection; Apply the latest evidence and guidelines to individualize targeted therapy for patients with cancers harboring NTRK, RET, ALK, and other targetable genomic alterations; and Educate patients about the role of biomarker testing, risks and benefits of targeted therapies, and importance of selecting optimal therapy based on biomarker testing results and patient needs, values, and preferences.
Ashish M. Kamat, MD, MBBS - Transforming Bladder Cancer Treatment: Essential Guidance for Urologists on Therapeutic Selection, Safety, and Sequencing Along the Disease Continuum
Go online to PeerView.com/RMY860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. The therapeutic landscape of bladder cancer has undergone a significant transformation with the addition of immune checkpoint inhibitors to the treatment armamentarium. With a key role in the treatment and maintenance of recurrent disease, as well as in first-line maintenance of newly diagnosed disease, the research on actionable targets in bladder cancer has led to regulatory approval of the FGFR-targeted therapy erdafitinib for FGFR mutation-positive bladder tumors, and antibody–drug conjugates (ADCs). Additional advances have occurred in the localized disease setting such as novel bladder-sparing and perioperative approaches, as well as the first regulatory approval of adjuvant immunotherapy in high-risk muscle-invasive bladder cancer. In light of these developments, the challenge for urology professionals is how to best blend the diverse clinical evidence for these agents with the realities of real-world cancer care. Further, important combination approaches expand the therapeutic capacity available to patients with bladder cancer. This CME-certified activity will highlight strategies for optimal care for managing patients with bladder cancer in light of current evidence and guidance on safely integrating these agents into treatment plans. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Identify patients with early-stage bladder cancer who could potentially benefit from the use of novel therapeutic strategies in the adjuvant and neoadjuvant settings (ie, NMIBC and MIBC) based on recent approvals, clinical evidence, and ongoing trials; Integrate therapeutic strategies into management protocols for eligible patients with metastatic bladder cancer based on regulatory status and treatment roles of emerging therapeutic classes (ie, immune checkpoint inhibitors, targeted therapies, and antibody–drug conjugates), including in the context of clinical trials; Develop appropriate strategies to mitigate and manage the unique adverse events associated with the variety of novel and emerging therapeutic classes for the management of bladder cancer.

The therapeutic landscape for metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer (mCSPC) has evolved rapidly in recent years, and research endeavors continue to expand treatment options with significant implications for patients. In addition to the approval of multiple second-generation androgen deprivation therapies (ADTs), current clinical trials are investigating novel targeted therapies, immunotherapies, and combination approaches in different disease settings. Furthermore, when managing patients with mCSPC, clinicians must consider established, newly approved, and emerging therapies, as well as individual patient-, tumor-, and treatment-related factors. Given the wealth of new options, how do clinicians determine the best treatment course for each patient? Answers to this and other thought-provoking queries are provided in this educational activity based on a recent live symposium, as a panel of prostate cancer experts examine the latest clinical data for novel and emerging therapeutic approaches and discuss evidence-based strategies for individualizing treatment for each patient with mCSPC. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Assess the rationale and clinical evidence for novel therapeutic approaches for patients with mCSPC, such as the addition of novel androgen axis inhibitors or docetaxel to ADT, Develop optimal, individualized treatment plans for patients with mCSPC that incorporate novel therapeutics as appropriate, taking into consideration individual patient-, disease-, and treatment-related factors, Apply evidence- and team-based strategies to proactively mitigate and manage treatment-related adverse events that may occur in patients with mCSPC who are receiving novel therapeutics as part of their care, Employ effective strategies to engage patients with mCSPC in shared decision-making, with the goal of maximizing patient satisfaction, clinical outcomes, and treatment adherence.
