The Society for Neuro-Oncology has reviewed and approved this symposium as appropriate for presentation as an Industry Supported Symposium. The symposium constitutes the content and views of the sponsor and is not part of the official SNO Annual Meeting program.

Meeting Overview

Understand the role of the neuro-oncologist and enhance your understanding of leptomeningeal carcinomatosis in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) at this interactive satellite symposium. A variety of topics will be discussed, including incidence of leptomeningeal carcinomatosis, patient presentation and prognostic factors, and limitations of traditional therapies. There will be a focus on the efficacy of EGFR-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) when leptomeningeal carcinomatosis is present. In addition, practical considerations in the treatment of leptomeningeal carcinomatosis with EGFR-targeted therapy, such as testing for EGFR mutation on progression, monitoring leptomeningeal carcinomatosis response to EGFR TKI therapy, dosing and duration of EGFR therapy, management of adverse events, and the importance of interdisciplinary communication, will be discussed. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the expert faculty throughout the symposium.

This educational activity is specifically designed to meet the needs of neuro-oncologists, medical oncologists, and other healthcare professionals providing care to patients with leptomeningeal carcinomatosis in NSCLC.

After successful completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Evaluate the efficacy of EGFR TKIs in the treatment of leptomeningeal carcinomatosis in NSCLC in recent trials
  • Identify and manage potential treatment-related adverse events associated with EGFR TKIs

This educational activity is supported by a grant from AstraZeneca.
