In this activity, experts in oncology and managed care provide a foundational overview of the mechanism of action of cancer immunotherapies and why this class of agents is different from other oncologic therapies. The panel also explores how immunotherapies have revolutionized the management of cancer over the last few years, particularly the ways in which SCLC management is finally changing. Additionally, the latest research and practical considerations for value assessment of cancer immunotherapies in managed care settings are presented, with specific implications for SCLC. Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to: Describe the rationale for and potential benefits of integrating immunotherapies and immune-based combination approaches into the SCLC treatment arsenal throughout the disease continuum, Review efficacy and safety findings from key clinical trials assessing immunotherapies and combination approaches across different treatment settings of SCLC, as well as data on potential biomarkers, Incorporate immunotherapies into treatment plans for appropriate patients with SCLC in managed care settings.
