Endometrial cancer (EC) is the fourth most common malignancy in women in developed countries and the sixth most deadly malignancy in women in the United States. Women with advanced disease have fewer treatment options and a poorer prognosis. However, the treatment landscape has recently broadened to include checkpoint inhibitors and other targeted monoclonal antibodies. The exploration of various immune-targeting combinations has shed light on the prospect of synergistic antitumor effects of these agents when used together. Combination therapy approval and the clinical implications of treating patients with new agents have led to the need for education to ensure that clinicians have the knowledge and competence to translate best practices for managing treatment and adverse events (AE) into patient care.
This CMEO Live and OnDemand will provide learners with the rationale and data for new combination therapies approved for advanced EC as well as best practices to improve patient adherence to their regimens, with the goal of early recognition and appropriate management of AEs.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Examine the rationale and data leading to the approval of combination regimens in advanced EC.
- Apply best practices to address treatment challenges related to combination therapy in advanced EC.
