    Course Description

    This interactive online course is part of the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer’s (SITC) Advances in Cancer Immunotherapy™ (ACI) program. Designed for oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, emergency physicians and all members of the cancer team, the ACI program focuses on recent clinical advancements, management of immune-related adverse events, underlying mechanisms of different immunotherapy options, clinical application for various disease states, and what to look for in the future. View all available ACI online offerings at www.sitcancer.org/acionline.

     

    This course, Immunotherapy for the Treatment of Microsatellite Instability or Tumor Mutational Burden-High Cancers, provides an overview of immunotherapy treatment for cancers with these characteristics. This course will help the learner understand what microsatellite instability (MSI)  and tumor mutational burden (TMB) terms mean, what meaures can be performed to identify MSI/TMB, various FDA-approved regimens for cancers that are MSI/TMB-high, and provide current clinical trial information.    Learners will have an opportunity to interactively apply what they've learned through two in-depth case studies. At the end of this course, participants will be better able to implement immunotherapy for the treatment of cancers with high or low microsatellite instability and/or tumor mutational burden.
