The advent of the fourth treatment modality, tumor treating fields (TTFields), and ongoing research on novel systemic agents are continuing to improve clinical outcomes for patients with glioblastoma. In this activity, based on a recent live symposium planned in collaboration with the American Brain Tumor Association and held during the 24th Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuro-Oncology, neuro-oncology experts discuss cutting-edge advancements with TTFields therapy and the future outlook on novel targeted agents for patients with glioblastoma. Additionally, the faculty share stories about real patients to highlight how scientific advancements and clinical data translate into personalized care. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Summarize the biologic rationale of TTFields, immunotherapy, multikinase and TRK inhibitors, among other drug classes for the treatment of glioblastoma, Assess the latest clinical evidence on currently available treatment strategies, such as TTFields and targeted TRK inhibitors, for newly diagnosed and recurrent glioblastoma, Review recent safety and efficacy evidence on novel agents under investigation, including immune checkpoint and multikinase inhibitors, for the therapeutic management of glioblastoma, Develop personalized treatment plans for patients with glioblastoma (both newly diagnosed and recurrent), including the consideration of enrolling in clinical trials
