Novel Molecularly Targeted Therapies and Biomarkers in Advanced Colorectal Cancer

Treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer has continued to evolve over the last several years, with emerging identification of biomarkers that underlie heterogeneity of responses to new and existing therapy. Ongoing clinical research seeks to identify new therapeutic options in molecularly-defined subgroups of patients. We will review the most exciting and clinically impactful research findings in this presentation.

Lecture Objectives:

  • Discuss important clinicopathologic features underlying the biology of colorectal cancer

  • Describe varying sequences of therapies in management of metastatic colorectal cancer

  • Describe biomarkers that guide selection and personalization of therapies for patients with advanced colorectal cancer
