How can recent advances in managing HER2-positive GI cancers be used to further improve outcomes for patients? With the validation of novel HER2-targeted agents in gastric, colorectal, and other GI malignancies, this has become the central therapeutic question—one that can be answered by a combination of evidence-based HER2 testing and the integration of modern HER2-directed therapeutics. In this activity, experts in HER-positive gastric cancer discuss the latest clinical evidence that supports the rapid integration of HER2-directed therapies across GI cancer settings. This “Seminars and Practicum” activity pairs compelling case discussion with the science that illustrates how to use innovative HER2 therapies to meaningfully improve patient outcomes—and the implication of this management model for EU and US practice. Don’t miss this exciting, informative learning opportunity! Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Incorporate guideline-recommended HER2 testing into the routine management of patients with gastric, colorectal, and other GI tract cancers; Assess key safety and efficacy evidence on recently approved and emerging HER2-targeted therapies for different populations of patients with GI cancers; Develop individualized management plans for patients with HER2-positive GI cancers that leverage biomarker testing results, the latest clinical evidence, current guideline recommendations, and relevant patient-, disease- and treatment-specific factors; and Employ appropriate strategies and best practices to monitor for, mitigate, and manage AEs related to novel therapies for HER2-positive GI cancers.
