Optimizing the Care of Metastatic Colorectal Cancer Patients with Antiangiogenic Agents

An educational symposium held during the 2013 ASCO Annual Meeting. Not an official event of the 2013 ASCO Annual Meeting. Not sponsored or endorsed by ASCO or the Conquer Cancer Foundation

Join us Friday evening, May 31 at 6:00pm, in Chicago for Optimizing the Care of Metastatic Colorectal Cancer Patients with Antiangiogenic Agents, a complimentary educational symposium held during the 2013 ASCO Annual Meeting.

As new agents are developed and standards of care change for CRC patients, it becomes imperative that physicians stay abreast of the current practices, updates to treatment recommendations, and have an understanding of the potential benefits and risks of the new therapies to be able to optimally integrate those strategies into clinical practice.

Participants will gain an increased knowledge regarding:

  • The angiogenesis pathway in colorectal cancer (CRC) and the different antiangiogenic strategies in clinical development for CRC patient
  • The latest clinical data with currently approved and emerging antiangiogenic agent regimens for treatment of mCRC
  • Optimizing treatment selection and duration of therapy for the management of progressive disease
