Meet The Professor: Current and Future Management of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer with an EGFR Mutation — Part 1 of a 3-Part Series (Webinar Audio Proceedings)
Released July 2022

Featuring perspectives from Dr Joel Neal. Published July 19, 2022. (Webinar Audio Proceedings)

CE Information and Faculty Disclosures

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


    • Evaluate the various oncogenic alterations identifiable in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase domain, and determine how these may predict potential response or lack thereof to currently available EGFR-directed therapies.
    • Acknowledge the FDA approval of adjuvant osimertinib for localized non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with an EGFR mutation, and identify patients for whom this novel approach would be warranted.
    • Evaluate published clinical trial findings supporting the use of osimertinib or erlotinib/ramucirumab as first-line therapy for patients with metastatic NSCLC and actionable EGFR mutations, and consider the implications of this information for clinical practice.
    • Develop an optimal therapeutic approach for patients with NSCLC with EGFR mutations and CNS metastases, considering symptomatology, number of lesions and other factors.
    • Describe mechanisms of tumor resistance to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), and discern how available and investigational therapies can be optimally employed in the protocol and nonresearch care of patients with progressive NSCLC with EGFR mutations.
    • Evaluate the mechanism of action of and published research data with the dual-targeting EGFR-MET bispecific antibody amivantamab and the novel EGFR TKI mobocertinib for NSCLC with an EGFR exon 20 insertion mutation, and consider how these therapies fit into current clinical management algorithms.
    • Recall the biologic rationale for the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating novel therapeutic approaches for patients with NSCLC with EGFR mutations.
