A Roundtable Discussion on the Multicenter LEGACY Study: Response Rate, Duration of Response and Overall Survival of Y90 in Early and Advanced HCC

CME Information

Activity Title A Roundtable Discussion on the Multicenter LEGACY Study: Response and Overall Survival of Y90 in Early and Advanced HCC
Topic Y90 in early and advanced HCC
Accreditation Type AMA PRA Category1 Credit(s)
Release Date October 1, 2020
Expiration Date October 31, 2021
Estimated Time to Complete Activity 90 minutes


LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Discuss the objective response rates when assessed using blinded independent central review
  • Discuss the importance of duration of response
  • Review overall survival observed in early and advanced HCC
  • Synthesize how data from this study can impact clinical outcomes for patients with HCC

STATEMENT OF NEED

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) both primary and secondary affects millions of patient worldwide. While early stage disease might be amenable for curative treatments, chemotherapy is used for the majority of other cases. Due to the lack of effective systemic therapies for HCC, researchers have been investigating the use of locoregional tumor control with Yttrium-90 (Y90) radioembolization. Currently, there are two approved available Y90 devices for administration and numerous ongoing trials aimed at exploring the current and future utility of radioembolization in hepatic malignancies. As more information from studies are made available it is important to ensure clinicians are up to date with the latest evidence.  This activity is developed to educate clinicians on newer evidence and how to apply the information to their current practice of treating patients with hepatic malignancies.
