Controversy in breast and axilla surgical guidance: Not all seeds and tracers are created equal

Moderator: Susan Boolbol, MD
Panelists: Brigid Killelea, MD, FACS, Michael Alvarado, MD, Anne Peled, MD, and Lucy De La Cruz, MD

Not all seeds and tracers are created equal… join us as we take a deep-dive in to the technologies currently available for seed localization and axillary staging, alongside a world-class panel of breast surgical oncologists, with years of collective experience across all available seed localization devices on the market. The great localization debates will tackle everything from seed reliability to MRI visibility, metal instruments, accuracy of measurement, clinical efficacy, and much more.

That’s followed by the world-first, in-person launch of the next generation Sentimag® system and new Magseed® markers - built by Endomag, designed by you. Taking on board feedback from thousands of physicians worldwide, see how the new system has built on the strengths that have made Sentimag® so widely adopted, plus added an abundance of new advanced features.

Personalizing Care for Early Breast Cancer Patients: TAILORx, RxPONDER, and Beyond

Program Objectives:
  • Learn about the recently released data from the RxPONDER trial and how the Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score® test can help inform chemotherapy treatment decisions for node-positive breast cancer patients
  • Explore how the Breast Recurrence Score® test and RSClin™ tool can help physicians personalize chemotherapy treatment decisions for node-negative breast cancer patients
  • Explore ongoing studies on gene signatures that may help identify candidates for radiation therapy deceleration
Program Description:

Dr. Christy Russell (Vice President, US Medical Affairs) will lead a discussion exploring how the Breast Recurrence Score® test can help inform systemic therapy decisions for early node-negative and node-positive breast cancer patients. She will also explore ongoing studies on gene signatures that may help personalize radiotherapy decisions in early breast cancer.

Expanding the Benefits of PARP Inhibitor Therapy to More Patients With Breast Cancer and Earlier Disease Settings: Multidisciplinary Perspectives on How to Maximize the Potential of PARP Inhibitors and Optimize Their Use as Part of Multimodal Management of Breast Cancer

Program Objectives:

Upon completion of this CE activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe DNA damage response (DDR) pathways and the rationale for therapeutic targeting of DDR with PARP inhibitors in early and advanced breast cancer
  2. Identify patients with breast cancer who might benefit from treatment with PARP inhibitors based on current evidence and best practices for biomarker testing
  3. Integrate PARP inhibitors into evidence-based, individualized treatment plans for eligible patients with early and advanced breast cancer considering latest efficacy and safety data in the context of clinical practice or clinical trials
  4. Manage treatment-related adverse events in patients receiving PARP inhibitors for breast cancer treatment

Poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibition is now the standard of care for metastatic breast cancer harboring a germline BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation, and studies continue to investigate PARP inhibitors as monotherapies or in rational combinations. Most recently, exciting results have revealed a potential role for PARP inhibitor therapy in earlier disease settings where there is a possibility for cure, heralding a new era of targeted therapy for patients with breast cancer. In order to maximize the benefits of these advances, it is crucial for the multidisciplinary breast cancer care team to keep current with the latest data and expert recommendations to effectively integrate PARP inhibitor therapy into clinical practice, as well as genetic counseling and biomarker testing to refine individualized therapy selection.

This PeerView Live Clinical Consults event for in-person and virtual attendees will provide essential information on the biologic rationale for targeting PARP, the latest data and their practical implications, guidance for optimizing biomarker testing, and strategies for improving multidisciplinary collaboration so that patients with breast cancer can make the most of the recent advances with PARP inhibitor therapy.
