Neuro-Oncology Perspectives in Neurofibromatosis Type 1: New Horizons in the Era of MEK Inhibition

Presented by Creative Educational Concepts, Inc (CEC Oncology).
Supported by an independent educational grant from AstraZeneca.

Overview
This educational initiative is targeted to neuro-oncologists, pediatric neuro-oncologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, medical oncologists, neurologists, neuro-oncology researchers, and other members of the neuro-oncology team who care for patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). Designed and developed to provide an exhaustive overview of novel and emerging data, as well as establish a foundational context of NF1 disease state complexity, this activity will begin by identifying keystone diagnostic signs, symptoms, and clinical hallmarks in pediatric patients, and describe the genetic etiologies and multi-system pathophysiologies that have historically made NF1-associated plexiform neurofibromas so difficult to treat. Attendees will then gain insights from expert faculty regarding the pivotal shortcomings of traditional treatment approaches and the new horizons that have accompanied the burgeoning emergence of novel pharmacologic therapies, most notably MEK inhibitors. Finally, top-level clinical experts will guide attendees through a case-based section that explores the vital role of the neuro-oncology clinician and researcher in the evolving NF1 management paradigm, and provides activity participants an opportunity to design evidence-based treatment regimens for symptomatic, inoperable NF1-related tumors
