Topics Covered: This interactive, town hall program focuses on the latest advances in the treatment of non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Recent developments include emerging roles for novel targeted and chemotherapeutic agents, maintenance therapy, and the importance of using tumor characteristics in treatment selection. This program reviews the latest developments in maintenance therapy and evaluates the relevance of tumor histology and biomarker analysis for treatment decision making in the management of patients with NSCLC. Clinical trial updates are discussed in the context of clinical scenarios to assess the impact of current research on patient care.

Conference Objectives: Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to


  1. Assess histologic considerations for maximizing the safety and benefit associated with chemotherapy and targeted agents in the treatment of patients with NSCLC.
  2. Evaluate results from recent studies investigating the utility of molecular markers that may be predictive of response or resistance to specific therapeutic agents in patients with NSCLC.
  3. Discuss the role of maintenance therapy in the treatment of patients with NSCLC.

Who Should Attend: This activity is intended for medical oncologists, thoracic surgeons, advanced practitioners, physician assistants, pulmonologists, radiologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with NSCLC.
