Monotherapy, Combination Therapy, Triple Therapy: What Is Ideal for Your Type 2 Patients?

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. 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.

Exploring Other Pathways to CV Risk Reduction

Thanks in part to the widespread use of statins to reduce low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels, rates of cardiac events and mortality have decreased markedly. Still, data show that cardiovascular disease (CVD) accounted for 1 of every 3 deaths in the United States in recent years, leaving much room for improvement. Because achieving LDL-C targets does not completely eliminate CVD risk, attention has turned to other management approaches, including agents that address high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels, and other means of reducing residual risk. Assessing these new and emerging treatment strategies is an important step in developing an optimal approach to reducing CVD risk.

Emerging Technologies in Breast Cancer Imaging: Is CESM the Answer?

Accurate mammograms are limited in dense breasts where surrounding fibroglandular tissue decreases the view of lesions. Even when tumors are detected, the full extent of the disease may not be clearly visible. New advances in breast imaging technologies include the use of contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CESM), a safe and effective screening tool for the potential detection and diagnosis of cancerous lesions. This series of 5 independent 1 hour accredited activities will discuss the use of this screening tool in clinical practice as it compares to other imaging technologies.

SGLT2 Inhibitors in Type 2 Diabetes: Incorporating New Approaches Into Practice Through an Interdisciplinary Exploration

The sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, the newest drug class in the type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) treatment arsenal, target renal glucose reabsorption as a means of reducing hyperglycemia. Three agents in this class, canagliflozin, dapagliflozin, and empagliflozin, are approved to treat T2DM in the United States, as are fixed-dose combinations of some SGLT2 inhibitors with metformin or a DPP-4 inhibitor. To leverage the potential benefits of these agents and improve patient outcomes, clinicians need to be aware of the most recent data on the SGLT2 inhibitors and when and how to incorporate them into T2DM management plans.

Adopting a Patient-Centered Approach in the Management of COPD to Improve the Continuum of Care

Treatment of acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) remains the major factor in increasing healthcare costs associated with COPD. Patients who survive severe exacerbations of COPD are at higher risk of hospital readmission and death. The challenges of assessment of COPD and exacerbation severity are compounded by nonadherence or inadequate medical management.

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.

Part I offers 1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM
Part II offers 0.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM

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.

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.
