CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    These activities are intended for medical oncologists, breast cancer surgeons, radiation oncologists and other healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Appreciate the biologic rationale for, available data with and potential long-term benefits of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibody therapy for patients with metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC).
    • Review available research data supporting the use of chemotherapy in combination with anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies for newly diagnosed PD-L1-positive TNBC, and use this information to identify patients who may be appropriate for this approach.
    • Evaluate published research findings, clinical factors (eg, age, performance status, prior therapeutic exposure) and patient preferences in the selection and sequencing of available therapeutic agents for patients with PD-L1-negative TNBC or those who experience disease progression on front-line chemoimmunotherapy.
    • Consider available research data and ongoing clinical trials evaluating anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies for patients with localized TNBC, and consider the potential role of these strategies in clinical practice.
    • Assess the biologic rationale for ongoing clinical trials evaluating anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies alone or in combination with other systemic therapies for breast cancer, in order to effectively communicate the potential benefits of trial participation to patients.
    • Appraise published efficacy and safety data with PARP inhibitors for patients with metastatic breast cancer harboring BRCA1/2 mutations, and consider the diagnostic and therapeutic implications for nonresearch care.
    • Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating other investigational PARP inhibitors and novel applications of PARP inhibitors alone or in combination with other systemic approaches (eg, immunotherapy, chemotherapy) for breast cancer, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
    • Consider the mechanisms of action of, early data with and ongoing research evaluating other novel agents and treatment strategies under development for TNBC.
