As new therapeutic strategies are explored and validated, oncologists have more effective treatments to offer their patients with glioblastoma, the most common and lethal brain tumor in adults. Tumor treating fields (TTFields), a novel modality, has been an important step forward in improving outcomes in glioblastoma and has increased the armamentarium beyond surgical resection, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Moreover, targeted therapies continue to demonstrate promising results. Join PeerView and the American Brain Tumor Association to learn about the latest evidence on TTFields and other treatment strategies, including targeted therapies, such as antiangiogenic antibodies and multikinase and TRK inhibitors, that are being explored in glioblastoma. In this CME-certified web broadcast, a panel of experts in neuro-oncology will provide insights on the future of glioblastoma management, strategies for integrating therapeutic advances into the clinic, and approaches to personalizing care, including the considerations of clinical trial enrollment, for patients with glioblastoma.
