Challenges and Opportunities with Checkpoint Inhibition for First-Line Management of Advanced NSCLC

Program Overview

Immunotherapy has radically transformed the landscape of frontline treatment for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) without actionable mutations. Join us for this live event to hear our expert panel offer privileged insights into evidence-based guidelines for biomarker testing, the latest data pertaining to therapeutic options for NSCLC with high PD-L1 expression, and strategies to address immune-related adverse events. A patient with history of advanced NSCLC will be on the panel to augment these insights with “teaching moments” from his treatment journey.
