Addressing Unmet Needs in Mesothelioma:
Evaluating the Role of Angiokinase Inhibitors
CME Credits: 0.5
Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a relatively rare but serious malignancy that arises from the mesothelial surfaces of the pleural cavity. Most cases of MPM are associated with workplace exposure to high levels of asbestos, with the onset of cancer typically occurring 20 to 50 years after asbestos exposure.

Appropriate Use of Immune Therapy to Treat Head and Neck Cancer CME Credits: 0.5
While the introduction of cetuximab for treating patients with head and neck carcinomas may have introduced another agent to oncologists, these agents (that target oncogenes) have not yielded a prolonged clinical benefit.
Faculty: David S. Ettinger, MD Expires: 9/7/2018


Considerations for Use of Immune Therapy to Treat Metastatic Colorectal Cancer CME Credits: 0.5
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a leading cause of cancer-related deaths with poor 5-year survival rates for patients with metastatic disease. Patients with DNA mismatch repair-deficient (dMMR)/microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H) metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) are a distinct biomarker-defined population who may benefit less from conventional therapy compared with patients with MMR-proficient/microsatellite stable mCRC.

Immunotherapy for the Treatment of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer CME Credits: 1.0
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in the world, and approximately 85% of all lung cancer patients are diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
Faculty: Jarushka Naidoo and Beatriz Wills Expires: 5/3/2020


Integrating Immunotherapy into SCCHN Care: Implications for the Multidisciplinary Oncology Care Team CME Credits: 0.5
While the US Food and Drug Administration approval of cetuximab for treating patients with head and neck carcinomas may have introduced another agent to oncologists, these agents (that target oncogenes) have not yielded a prolonged clinical benefit for patients with head and neck cancer.
Faculty: Young Jun Kim, MD, PhD Expires: 6/15/2020


Metastatic Melanoma: Managing Benefit and Risk with the New Systemic Therapies CME Credits: 0.5
Melanoma is one of the most lethal human cancers and has historically been among the most resistant to contemporary chemotherapeutic approaches. It is the most serious form of skin cancer and has the highest mortality rate of all skin cancer types, leading to a rapid decline in the health in people who often are in the prime of life.

The Emerging Role of Immunotherapy in Treating Patients with Triple-Negative Breast Cancer CME Credits: 0.5
While the introduction of cetuximab for treating patients with head and neck carcinomas may have introduced another agent to oncologists, these agents (that target oncogenes) have not yielded a prolonged clinical benefit.
