Meeting Overview

Enhance your understanding of the treatment options available for patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer (mPCA), including a focus on supportive care measures. The improvement of outcomes in this patient population are modest and most develop resistance to chemotherapy. This meeting will provide you insights into the emerging treatment approaches for targeting the pancreatic tumor microenvironment and strategies to enhance immune response. In addition to didactic lectures, real-life clinical scenarios will be presented and examined during a faculty panel discussion.

Satellite symposium held in conjunction with the ESMO 20th World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer. This symposium content is not an official part of the World Congress scientific program, nor is it organized or endorsed by Imedex.

This educational activity is designed for medical oncologists, gastroenterologists, and other healthcare providers outside of the United States who are involved in the management of patients with PCA.

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

  • Select the most appropriate treatment sequence for patients with advanced pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, taking into consideration patient and disease characteristics
  • Describe emerging treatment approaches for targeting the PCA microenvironment, including stromal depleting agents and strategies to enhance immune response
  • Evaluate and appropriately use supportive care measures in patients with PCA

This educational activity is supported by a grant from Shire.
