Topics to Be Discussed

  • Targeted Treatment Approaches for Colorectal Cancer (CRC)
  • Other Considerations in the Management of CRC

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

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to

  • Optimize the use of adjuvant chemotherapy for patients with localized colorectal cancer (CRC), considering the influence of clinical and biological factors, such as age, performance status and stage, and the potential relevance of molecular residual disease.
  • Develop an understanding of validated biomarkers of response in metastatic CRC (mCRC), such as RAS, BRAF, HER2, microsatellite instability (MSI)/mismatch repair (MMR) deficiency and tumor sidedness, and consider the implications for molecular testing and clinical care.
  • Formulate a plan to guide the selection and sequencing of therapies for patients with mCRC, considering tumor sidedness, biomarker profile, prior systemic therapy, symptomatology and personal goals of treatment.
  • Evaluate available data with immune checkpoint inhibitor therapies for MSI-high or MMR-deficient mCRC, and select patients for treatment with these approaches.
  • Appreciate published research documenting the efficacy of combined BRAF/EGFR inhibition for patients with relapsed/refractory mCRC and a BRAF V600E mutation, and optimally incorporate this therapeutic strategy into the care of appropriately selected candidates.
  • Recognize available data with HER2-targeted therapies for patients with HER2-positive mCRC, and consider the current and future role of FDA-approved and investigational approaches in the treatment of this disease.
  • Apply available research to optimize the selection and sequencing of later-line therapeutic options for patients with multiregimen-relapsed mCRC, considering the implications of recently presented Phase III clinical trial findings.
  • Recall ongoing trials evaluating novel agents and strategies for patients with mCRC, and use this information to appropriately refer candidates for study participation.
