Q&A With Dr. Sequist
Tue, 04/12/2011 - 20:33
Howard (Jack) West, MD, Associate Clinical Professor, Medical Oncology, Executive Director, Employer Services, Founder, President and CEO of GRACE

qa_01The third and last podcast from our discussions with Dr. Lecia Sequist, of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, covers the question & answer session that followed her excellent webinar on acquired resistance to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors, as well as the update I did with her on the latest information from their experience of re-biopsying lung tumors over the course of treatment.

Here are the audio and video versions of the podcast, as well as the transcript.




I'll note that we didn't include every question, but these are many of them that would likely be most appealing to a broad audience. Feel free to leave other questions, and either one of us on the GRACE faculty or perhaps Dr. Sequist may be able to provide some thoughts.

I hope people learned something from the webinar and the series of podcasts.
