Agenda

Each 1-hour session will be divided into topic modules focused on current management, emerging research and novel agents and strategies under active investigation for small cell lung cancer. Each event will employ an identical format that will include the following elements:

  • Moderator Dr Neil Love and a featured participating clinical investigator
  • Discussion of participating faculty treatment recommendations
  • Review of available clinical research findings
  • Community oncologist video case presentations
  • Interactive audience polling and extensive Q&A

    MODULE 1: First-Line Therapy for Extensive-Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC)

    MODULE 2: Selection and Sequencing of Therapy for Patients with Relapsed SCLC

    MODULE 3: Safety and Tolerability of Available Therapies for SCLC

Target Audience
This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows, radiation oncologists and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of small cell lung cancer.

Learning Objectives

  • Formulate up-to-date management strategies for patients with small cell lung cancer (SCLC), considering the roles of local therapy, chemotherapy and immunotherapy.
  • Review long-term data supporting the use of atezolizumab and durvalumab in combination with platinum-based chemotherapy as first-line therapy for extensive-stage SCLC, and consider how these regimens can be appropriately and safely integrated into clinical practice.
  • Consider the FDA approval of and available clinical trial findings with lurbinectedin for patients with SCLC who experience disease progression on or after platinum-containing therapy, and determine how to optimally integrate this agent into current treatment algorithms.
  • Compare and contrast the side effects associated with recently approved agents and strategies for the treatment of SCLC, and formulate supportive management plans to minimize and/or mitigate these toxicities.
  • Recall the mechanism of action and FDA approval of the novel reversible CDK4/6 inhibitor trilaciclib, and consider the use of this agent to reduce chemotherapy-induced bone marrow suppression in patients with extensive-stage SCLC.
  • Assess ongoing clinical research evaluating novel agents and treatment strategies under development for the management of SCLC, and counsel patients regarding the potential benefits of trial participation.
