Series Listing



Biosimilars Series

Biosimilar medications are "highly similar" to an already FDA-approved biological product. One biosimilar is approved in the US, with more sure to follow in the near future, including a biosimilar insulin that is likely to have a significant impact on diabetes management.

Although they will be responsible for ensuring safe and effective use of biosimilars, many clinicians are not familiar with the distinctions between biosimilars and generic drugs, including the different approval processes and regulatory issues surrounding these agents.

To clarify those questions and provide background and guidance two CME programs are being offered.

Novel Treatment of Inflammatory Bowel Disease Informed by Science and Patient Choice

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which consists of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, is a chronic inflammatory disease of the gut that develops because of an excessive immune response to the normal gut flora in a genetically susceptible host.1 Current therapies for IBD have not, as yet, been able to prevent the need for surgical intervention in more than 50% of patients with IBD. Education for clinicians who manage patients with moderate-to-severe IBD about the immunopathophysiology of IBD and the latest available options to individualize IBD treatment can reduce the use of corticosteroids and need for hospitalizations or surgery, resulting in improved quality of life for these patients.

Moving Beyond Laxatives in OIC: New Targets, New Strategies, New Outcomes

The majority of patients treated with opioid therapy for cancer and non-cancer pain experience opioid-induced constipation (OIC). This condition is not trivial as it affects the patient's quality of life and can lead them to reduce, discontinue, or change effective analgesic therapy. The spectrum of laxative classes currently available do not provide effective results in this setting, primarily because they do not address the mechanisms by which opioids cause OIC. Research advances have improved the understanding of those underlying mechanisms and have resulted in the identification of new pharmacologic agents that target the μ-opioid receptor interaction while maintaining the analgesic benefit of the opioid and minimizing the risk of withdrawal.

Recognizing and Treating Shift Work Disorder: Strategies to Optimize Sleep and Alertness

Despite the prevalence of shift work in the United States and the fact that shift work sleep/wake disorder (SWSWD) poses serious risks to the individual's functioning, health, safety, and quality of life, the disorder remains largely under-recognized, underdiagnosed, and undertreated.

This 3-module series is designed for physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants working in primary care or family practice settings.

Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer iNewsletter Series

Approximately 87% of lung cancer cases in the U.S. are classified as non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and most cases are diagnosed at an advanced stage with poor overall survival. Major steps in the molecular era of lung cancer treatment are being made as clinicians not only rely on histologic classification of lung cancer to guide therapy, but also define lung cancer tumor types based on specific molecular profiles. The use of molecularly targeted therapies represents a significant advance in the treatment of NSCLC.

The gap between optimal management of advanced NSCLC and current clinical practice is widening as many oncologists remain unaware of how best to apply new and emerging clinical evidence into their clinical practice. Oncologists and other cancer professionals have an opportunity to prolong life and improve the quality of life in selected patients with advanced NSCLC by more thoroughly defining molecular subsets of advanced NSCLC and more fully integrating the use of targeted therapies into treatment regimens.
