Steering improved outcomes in non-driver mutation lung cancer: Progress and challenges

IASLC 19th World Conference on Lung Cancer - Industry satellite symposium

Chaired by Mark A. Socinski

Held on Sunday 23rd September at the Metro Convention Centre, Toronto, CA

The IASLC World Conference on Lung Cancer is a world-renowned platform for the presentation and discussion of new science in the field of lung cancer and thoracic oncology. The presentations from this associated symposium discussed the latest in non-driver mutation lung cancer, from histologic and molecular profiling, through to current and emerging treatment options, including those for patients with refractory and aggressive disease. The objective was to discuss the challenges that this patient group presents, and the progress being made to overcome them.

Learning objectives

The aims of the symposium were to help delegates to be able to:

  • Describe how the histologic and molecular profiling may help to individualize care in nonsquamous and squamous NSCLC from the first-line setting through subsequent lines of treatment
  • Appraise data from the on-going trials in the field of non-driver lung cancer and understand how they can maximize patient outcomes
  • Debate the optimal sequencing and the pros and cons of the different available therapies for lung cancer patients without an actionable oncogenic driver
  • Identify patients with refractory and/or aggressive disease and explain how to optimally sequence treatment for these patients in daily clinical practice

Educational grant

This program was made possible thanks to an independent educational grant from Eli Lilly and Company.
