5:00 PM – 6:30 PM Eastern Time
Live CME-accredited webinar

Topics to Be Discussed

  • Evolving Front-Line Management of Advanced Gastric and Gastroesophageal Junction (GEJ) Cancer
  • Selection and Sequencing of Therapies for Relapsed Gastric or GEJ Cancer; Novel Investigational Approaches
  • Current and Future Management of HER2-Positive Advanced Gastric/GEJ Cancer
  • Key Research Informing the Treatment of Localized and Advanced Esophageal Cancer

A detailed agenda will be provided in the coming weeks.

Target Audience
This activity is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows, surgeons and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of gastrointestinal cancer.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to

  • Use HER2 status, PD-L1 combined positive score, clinical factors and patient preferences to personalize the selection and sequence of systemic therapy for locally advanced or metastatic gastric or gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancer.
  • Describe the published research data with the use of immune checkpoint inhibitors alone or in combination with chemotherapy in the management of gastric/GEJ cancer, and optimally integrate these strategies into nonresearch treatment algorithms.
  • Recall the biologic rationale for and available data with the use of trastuzumab deruxtecan for previously treated HER2-overexpressing gastric/GEJ cancer, and discern the current and potential applicability of this treatment strategy.
  • Devise a rational approach to the incorporation of TAS-102 into the treatment algorithm for previously treated locally advanced or metastatic gastric/GEJ cancer.
  • Appreciate the recent FDA approvals of pembrolizumab and nivolumab for previously treated squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus, and identify patients appropriate for treatment with either of these novel agents.
  • Appraise recently presented clinical trial findings with and potential roles for anti-PD-1 antibodies as adjuvant therapy or as a component of first-line treatment for patients with esophageal cancer.
  • Review the rationale for, available data with and ongoing research evaluating novel agents and strategies for gastroesophageal cancers, and effectively prioritize clinical trial opportunities for eligible patients.

CME Credit Form
A CME credit form will be emailed to participants within 3 business days of the activity.
