Combating Drug Resistant Gram-negative Infections: Giving Conventional Antibodies New Capabilities

Format: Webcast

Gram-negative (GN) bacterial infections present a daunting challenge for clinicians, as they can be especially hard to treat and are associated with high morbidity and mortality, particularly when dealing with carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and other antibiotic-resistant pathogens. While the development of novel antibiotic classes to overcome resistance has been lacking, recent advances in the development of next-generation agents as of well-established classes has the potential to help address the critical need for effective therapies for serious, drug-resistant GN infections. As such, it is crucial for members of the infectious disease clinical team who treat these patients to understand how these emerging therapies differ from their more conventional predecessors, how they may effectively fit into current treatment paradigms, and how to effectively approach dosing and therapeutic drug management in order to optimize health outcomes for these difficult-to-treat patients.

Addressing the Urgent Threat: Strategies for Combating Hard-To-Treat Bacterial Infections

Format: Webcast

In the United States, as many as 2 million patients are annually diagnosed with antibiotic-resistant Gram-positive or Gram-negative (GP/GN) infections. Unfortunately, the development of novel antibiotics has lagged dangerously behind the emergence of resistant infections, leaving these patients with limited treatment options. Recently, several novel antibiotics have been approved, and more are in the clinical pipeline, many of which have proven to be particularly effective in patients with harder-to-treat GP and/or GN pathogens. However, in the absence of the judicious use of these new antibiotics, acquired resistance to these new agents is inevitable. This archived symposium will provide participants with the opportunity to review the clinical utility of new and investigational antimicrobials while also focusing on strategies to promote careful, appropriate antibiotic utilization. Interactive patient case scenarios will allow clinicians to apply acquired knowledge of antibiotic use to real-world examples of treating patients with GP/GN infections.

Patient-Centered Care for Genitourinary Cancers

Format: Webcast

Community oncologists are challenged to stay up to date with updated clinical practice guidelines on the personalization of treatments for genitourinary (GU) cancers, including prostate, urothelial, and renal cancers, combination/sequential therapies, emerging safety and efficacy data from ongoing studies of novel regimens, and strategies to facilitate patient engagement in order to improve patient outcomes. Clinicians need tools and resources to help educate their patients and empower them to participate in their care and make educated treatment choices. Advanced-stage GU cancers consists of a spectrum of disease that requires an integrated multidisciplinary approach supported by a uro-oncologic team. Therefore, it is critical to educate these clinicians on their roles within the multidisciplinary cancer care team and on the importance of effective communication with other members of the team to maximize patient outcomes.

Major Depressive Disorder: Understanding the Significance of Residual Symptoms and Balancing Efficacy with Tolerability

Format: Webcast

Effective treatment of major depressive disorder with antidepressants is currently limited by factors that affect treatment compliance, including delay in onset of therapeutic effects and, often, intolerable side-effects. Recent data suggest that use of antidepressant combinations with different mechanisms of action may be a better first-line strategy prior to augmentation with other drug classes. The rationale for this approach is that combining multiple pharmacological actions affecting multiple monoamine targets produces greater efficacy. The latest data on multimodal therapies indicate shorter onset of therapeutic effects and improved tolerability. By modulating multiple receptors and neurotransmitter systems, it is hoped that these new agents may also treat some of the associated symptoms of major depressive disorder, such as anxiety and cognitive dysfunction.
