CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of medical and radiation oncologists, urologists and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of bladder cancer and renal cell carcinoma.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Recall the underlying research database supporting the FDA approval of anti-PD-1/anti-CTLA-4 combination therapy as first-line treatment for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC), and develop strategies to appropriately integrate this approach into patient care.
    • Appraise available clinical trial data evaluating recently FDA-approved combinations of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies with multikinase inhibitors for previously untreated metastatic RCC, and counsel patients about the risks and benefits of these novel regimens.
    • Develop a rational therapeutic approach to the sequencing of systemic therapies for patients with advanced RCC whose disease progresses on first-line treatment, incorporating tyrosine kinase inhibitors, mTOR inhibitors and immunotherapeutic agents.
    • Consider the recent FDA approval of pembrolizumab for high-risk, non-muscle-invasive urothelial bladder carcinoma (UBC) that is unresponsive to BCG, and determine how pembrolizumab can be appropriately integrated into patient care.
    • Evaluate available data and ongoing trials investigating the use of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies as neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapy for muscle-invasive bladder cancer, and refer eligible patients for appropriate study participation.
    • Review available clinical trial data leading to the recent FDA approval of the anti-PD-L1 antibody avelumab as maintenance therapy after first-line chemotherapy for patients with previously untreated metastatic UBC, and optimally incorporate this novel strategy into management algorithms.
    • Assess available and emerging clinical trial data evaluating anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies in combination with chemotherapy for patients with previously untreated metastatic UBC, and consider the potential role of this approach in routine practice.
    • Recognize the FDA approval of erdafitinib for advanced UBC with susceptible FGFR3 or FGFR2 genetic alterations in patients whose disease has progressed during or after at least 1 line of platinum-containing chemotherapy, and determine how this agent may be appropriately integrated into clinical practice.
    • Recall the mechanism of action and pivotal clinical trial findings with enfortumab vedotin for previously treated locally advanced or metastatic UBC, and identify patients for whom treatment with this novel compound would be appropriate.
