The recent introduction of poly-(ADP ribose)-polymerase (PARP) inhibitors, which exploit underlying DNA damage repair pathology, have largely shifted the ovarian cancer (OC) clinical landscape. These therapies now offer patients, who previously had little or no treatment options, a potentially life-prolonging therapy. Despite this, the need for better therapies for OC patients remain, as previous therapies have offered only minimal benefit. Further insights into the nuances of DNA damage repair and the specific deficiencies that contribute OC and EC oncogenesis have resulted in identifying new treatments, including immune-checkpoint inhibitors , as well as unique and potentially synergistic therapy combinations. Treating patients with these drug classes within the gynecological cancer landscape represents a novel development about which oncology healthcare providers struggle to remain up-to-date.

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and its educational partner, ASiM CE LLC, will provide this live and on-demand educational initiative, which will feature animated video segments and leverage patient-focused content to facilitate learner interaction, and merge clinical decision-making with evidence-based concepts to provide memorable, relevant, and retainable learning encounters.

This activity is intended for academic and community medical oncology healthcare providers, primarily physicians, who care for patients with ovarian and endometrial cancers. Nurse practitioners, physicians’ assistants, nurses, and other healthcare professionals involved in patient management will also find this content appropriate

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
  • EXPLAIN deficient DNA damage repair in ovarian cancer (OC) and endometrial cancer (EC), and mechanisms by which PARP inhibitors and immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs), target this pathology.
  • REVIEW the efficacy, safety, and clinical utility of PARP inhibitor sequential and combination therapy in OC and EC.
  • DESCRIBE clinical practice implications of PARP inhibitors and ICIs on genetic testing, patient selection, and adverse event management.
MDAndersonThe University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Didactic Lecture, Case Study, Audience Response System, Pre-/Post-Test, Question/Answer Sessions.

A course evaluation survey will provide participants with the opportunity to comment on the value of the program content to their practice decisions, performance improvement activities, or possible impact on patient health status. Participants will also have the opportunity to comment on any perceived commercial bias in the presentations as well as to identify future educational topics
