Description:
Although cervical and endometrial cancers are associated with high rates of positive clinical outcomes when detected early enough, many cases are not detected until they have reached an advanced stage. The management of patients with advanced/metastatic disease remains an important clinical and economic challenge. Pursuit of treatment options that may help to improve clinical efficacy and limit treatment-associated adverse events is an active area of investigation, with several options showing promise in recent studies. An understanding of the mechanisms underlying the development of these diseases has helped to inform new approaches to clinical management, which may improve outcomes for your patients.

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

  • Assess the current role of biomarkers to guide the application of immunotherapy for endometrial and cervical cancers

  • Describe key recent safety and efficacy data regarding immunotherapies for patients with endometrial and cervical cancers

  • Appraise current and emerging treatment combinations involving immunotherapy for women’s cancers

  • Outline evidence-based approaches to mitigate adverse events associated with immunotherapy for patients with endometrial and cervical cancers

  • Assess the managed care considerations of newer immune checkpoint inhibitors by exploring where these agents fit in the evolving endometrial and cervical cancers paradigm
