Physicians’ Education Resource® to Host Second Annual Precision Medicine Through Plasma

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 1 dicembre 2018

Physicians’ Education Resource® (PER®), the nation’s leading resource for oncology and hematology continuing medical education (CME), will host its second annual Precision Medicine Through Plasma: Using Liquid Biopsies in Contemporary Oncology Care workshop on Saturday, Dec. 8 at the Convene in New York City. The workshop will be chaired by Benjamin P. Levy, M.D., thoracic medical oncologist and the clinical director of medical oncology, Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Sibley Memorial Hospital, Associate Professor, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.“The introduction of liquid biopsies and plasma genotyping has drastically altered the diagnostic algorithm for patients with multiple solid tumor malignancies. These platforms not only have the ability to accurately identify the genetic underpinnings of a tumor but may also have utility to assess response to therapy in real time as well as detect minimal residual disease (MRD) in patients who have undergone curative intent therapy. This meeting is unique in brining together disease-specific experts who will each highlight the role and promise of liquid biopsies within their discipline,” Levy said.
“It is very important for medical professionals to not only be aware of the various actionable mutations, but also the methods to identify these mutations,” said Phil Talamo, president of PER.® “We look forward to offering this live CME workshop for the second year where attendees will get the chance to gather, interact and learn more about providing better patient care at each point along the disease continuum.” This half-day live interactive educational CME/CE workshop will address the rapidly evolving science and associated therapeutic developments resulting from the emergence of novel testing strategies such as liquid biopsies. Attendees will have the opportunity to increase their confidence and competence in selecting emerging novel testing strategies, such as liquid biopsies and plasma testing, as you strive to provide the best care for your patients. Ample question-and-answer time will also be provided for attendees to interact directly with the expert faculty.
