Medical Crossfire®: How the Experts Identify and Target EGFR exon 20 Insertion Mutations Across Lines of Care in NSCLC

Release Date: December 23, 2021
Expiration Date: December 23, 2022

Activity Overview

Approximately 10% to 20% of lung cancer cases in the United States are EGFR mutation–positive. Of these EGFR mutation–positive patients, a significant subset will have EGFR mutations that do not respond to clinically available EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), in particular, EGFR exon 20 insertion mutations.

The Medical Crossfire, one of PER’s signature educational formats, is a video-based program in which a panel of distinguished experts engage in spirted discussions and debates on a particular clinical topic. In this activity, 3 key thought leaders explore the latest data regarding current and emerging therapeutic strategies for the management of patients with EGFR-mutated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This lively discussion will help place new developments into clinical context to help you optimize care for your patients with NSCLC.
