Corneal Toxicity in Patients Receiving Antibody–Drug Conjugates for the Treatment of Cancer

Join us live or online for an interactive symposium at AAO 2021 with expert recommendations on care coordination, prompt recognition, and optimal management of ocular toxicity associated with antibody drug conjugates for the treatment of cancer. Hear from our panel of 2 ophthalmologists and an oncologist on how they manage patients in clinical practice and ask your questions during the panel discussions.

This event is not affiliated with the official program of AAO 2021.

Goal Statement
The goal of this program is to improve the knowledge and competence of learners in the mitigation and management of ocular toxicity for patients with cancer who are receiving antibody–drug conjugates.

Target Audience
This educational program is intended for ophthalmologists, optometrists, medical oncologists, and other healthcare professionals who provide care for patients receiving antibody–drug conjugates for the treatment of cancer.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Apply the available data and expert recommendations to optimally monitor for ocular toxicity in patients with cancer who are receiving antibody–drug conjugates
  • Plan appropriate therapeutic interventions with treating hematologists and oncologists in patients experiencing ocular toxicities from antibody–drug conjugate therapy to maximize clinical outcomes from anticancer therapy and mitigate worsening keratopathy
  • Describe the pathophysiology of corneal toxicity associated with antibody–drug conjugates
