On the Frontline: Immunotherapeutic Approaches in Advanced NSCLC

Program Overview

Immunotherapy has rapidly changed the landscape of therapeutic options for patients with metastatic NSCLC. Led by an expert panel, this activity will equip clinicians with the tools to identify patients eligible for frontline checkpoint inhibitor monotherapy, privileged insights into optimal therapeutic selection based on the latest clinical trial data, and strategies for optimal management of adverse events. A patient panelist shares his treatment journey, offering a novel perspective for healthcare professionals.
