First-Line Systemic Therapy for Patients with Unresectable Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) — Dr Venook

  • Clinical and biologic factors affecting the selection of first-line treatment for advanced HCC (eg, age, symptomatology, liver function)
  • Available Phase III data with and FDA approval of lenvatinib as first-line therapy for unresectable HCC
  • Design, entry criteria and key efficacy and safety findings of the Phase III IMbrave150 trial comparing atezolizumab/bevacizumab to sorafenib as first-line therapy for unresectable HCC
  • FDA approval and optimal integration of atezolizumab/bevacizumab as first-line therapy for unresectable HCC
  • Results from the Phase Ib KEYNOTE-524/Study 116 trial evaluating pembrolizumab in combination with lenvatinib as first-line treatment for advanced unresectable HCC; FDA breakthrough therapy designation and future development plans
  • Active Phase III trials attempting to improve outcomes for patients with newly diagnosed advanced HCC (eg, LEAP-002, COSMIC-312)

Selection and Sequencing of Therapies for Patients with Progressive Metastatic HCC — Dr Philip

  • Key efficacy and safety outcomes supporting the use of regorafenib for patients with progressive HCC
  • Design of and key efficacy outcomes from the Phase III CELESTIAL trial comparing cabozantinib to placebo for patients whose disease has progressed on at least 1 prior systemic therapy for advanced HCC; FDA approval and nonresearch role of cabozantinib in progressive HCC
  • Published results from the Phase III REACH-2 trial evaluating ramucirumab versus placebo for patients with AFP-elevated (≥400) HCC that has progressed on prior sorafenib; FDA approval and optimal integration into current treatment algorithms
  • Published efficacy and safety data with the use of single-agent immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy in patients with progressive HCC
  • Efficacy and safety findings from the CheckMate 040 trial leading to the FDA approval of nivolumab/ipilimumab in patients with relapsed HCC; current clinical role
  • Early safety and efficacy with, potential clinical role and ongoing evaluation of durvalumab/tremelimumab in HCC

Contemporary Treatment Approaches for Patients with Localized Pancreatic Cancer — Dr Bekaii-Saab

  • Findings from the Circulating Cell-free Genome Atlas study evaluating the potential role of a circulating free DNA assay to detect gastrointestinal cancers; accuracy and clinical relevance of results
  • Use of contemporary chemotherapy regimens (mFOLFIRINOX, nab paclitaxel/gemcitabine) with or without radiation therapy as neoadjuvant treatment for resectable or borderline-resectable pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PAD)
  • Selection of adjuvant systemic therapy for patients with resected PAD
  • Key efficacy results from the Phase III APACT trial evaluating adjuvant nab paclitaxel/gemcitabine versus gemcitabine alone; clinical applicability of the results and role, if any, of nab paclitaxel/gemcitabine in the adjuvant setting

Optimal Management of Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer — Dr O’Reilly

  • Optimal selection of first- and later-line treatment for metastatic PAD; effects of age, PS, comorbidities and prior neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapy
  • Published research experience with, patient selection for and practical integration of nanoliposomal irinotecan (nal-IRI) for relapsed metastatic PAD
  • Available data with and ongoing evaluation of nal-IRI in earlier disease settings
  • Design, entry criteria and key efficacy and safety findings from the Phase III POLO trial evaluating olaparib as maintenance therapy for patients with metastatic PAD and a germline BRCA mutation after first-line chemotherapy
  • FDA approval of maintenance olaparib, implications for genetic testing and current clinical care of patients with metastatic BRCA-mutated PAD
  • Ongoing investigation of other novel approaches in metastatic PAD

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

Learning Objectives

  • Acknowledge available Phase III data with and the FDA approval of lenvatinib as first-line treatment for unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and discern how this agent can be optimally integrated into the clinical care of patients with this disease.
  • Evaluate Phase III data leading to the recent FDA approval of atezolizumab in combination with bevacizumab as first-line therapy for patients with newly diagnosed unresectable or metastatic HCC, and consider the current role of this novel regimen.
  • Recall available clinical trial data with approved and investigational systemic interventions, and where appropriate, apply this information to the current clinical care of patients with locally advanced or metastatic HCC.
  • Maintain an understanding of the side effects and toxicities associated with targeted agents and immunotherapeutic approaches used in the management of advanced HCC to facilitate early and effective responses to various adverse events.
  • Consider age, performance status, prior therapeutic exposure and other clinical and logistical factors in the selection and sequencing of systemic therapy for patients with unresectable or metastatic HCC or locally advanced or metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PAD).
  • Appreciate the efficacy and tolerability profile of nanoliposomal irinotecan (nal-IRI) for treatment-refractory metastatic PAD, and optimally incorporate this agent into patient-care algorithms.
  • Appraise available Phase III data leading to the FDA approval of olaparib maintenance after first-line platinum-based chemotherapy for patients with newly diagnosed PAD and a germline BRCA mutation, and consider the diagnostic and therapeutic implications of these findings on clinical practice.
