With several available treatment modalities, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) requires a multidisciplinary approach that is based on disease stage and patient factors. The role of the interventional radiologist, always vital in managing intermediate-stage disease via locoregional approaches, has become increasingly more important in the treatment of advanced-stage disease, as oncologists, interventional radiologists, and transplant hepatologists work together to improve patient outcomes. Join PeerView’s multidisciplinary team of liver cancer experts for an in-depth analysis of the latest data on approved and emerging systemic treatment options for HCC and recent evidence on locoregional and multimodal approaches in various treatment settings. Through an engaging “tumor board” discussion, the expert panel will draw upon their clinical experience to provide guidance on optimal selection and transition between locoregional and systemic therapies, with a focus on guideline recommendations, underlying liver disease, biomarker information, and other patient-related factors. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Describe the safety and efficacy of available systemic treatment options, including multikinase inhibitors, anti-angiogenic agents, and checkpoint inhibitors alone and in combinations, across multiple lines of therapy for patients with advanced HCC, Review the latest evidence and ongoing trials on established and emerging combination approaches (eg, dual immune checkpoint blockade, immunotherapy plus targeted therapy, systemic agents plus locoregional therapy) for patients with intermediate- and advanced-stage HCC, Develop safe and effective multidisciplinary treatment plans for patients with intermediate- and advanced-stage HCC that are based on expert guidance, available evidence, underlying liver disease factors, biomarker information, and recommendations on timely transitions from locoregional to systemic options.
