Janet Daily-Freeman moderates a question & answer session with Drs. Leora Horn and Taofeek Owonikoko on issues of acquired resistance to targeted therapies for ALK+ and ROS1 patients.
The brain is a common site of disease in patients with ALK+ lung cancer. In this video, Dr. Horn illustrates the line-up of ALK+ treatments and how they work breaking through the blood/brain barrier.
Dr. West moderates a question & answer session with Drs. Leora Horn and Greg Riely on issues of acquired resistance to targeted therapies for patients with advanced NSCLC that harbors a driver mutation.
Repeat Biopsies and Emerging Technologies for Plasma Sampling of Mutations Seen with Acquired Resistance
Dr. Leora Horn of Vanderbilt University reviews the rapidly evolving issue and growing value of repeat biopsies, including plasma sampling as a "liquid biopsy" option, in the setting of acquired resistance to a driver mutation in advanced NSCLC.
Drs. Ben Solomon, Leora Horn, & Jack West review impressive data demonstrating a striking survival improvement from successful efforts at smoking cessation among smokers undergoing lung cancer CT screening.
Have Your Practices Changed Regarding Prophylactic Cranial Irradiation for Extensive Stage SCLC Patients?
Drs. Ben Solomon, Leora Horn, & Jack West discuss whether the data highlighting cognitive deficits from whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT) for patients with brain metastases should change our recommendations for prophylactic cranial irradiation (PCI).
Drs. Leora Horn, Ben Solomon, & Jack West debate whether results from a European trial of chest radiation after chemotherapy for extensive stage small cell lung cancer should lead to a change in treatment for this setting.
Drs. Ben Solomon, Leora Horn, & Jack West compare the clinical data with the third generation EGFR TKIs so active in acquired resistance and consider whether there are significant differences between them.
Drs. Leora Horn, Ben Solomon, & Jack West review whether there are specific factors that should make one second generation ALK inhibitor more ideal than other competing options for a specific patient with an ALK rearrangement.
Drs. Ben Solomon, Leora Horn, & Jack West evaluate the evidence and consider whether there are clinically significant differences among the second generation ALK inhibitors that would lead to a reason to prefer one over another for a particular patient.
