Based on current incidence rates, 12.4% of women born in the United States today will develop breast cancer at some time during their life.1 At the time of diagnosis, breast cancer is generally considered local, but eventually approximately 20% of patients will experience either locoregional or distant disease recurrence.2

Over the past 3 decades, biologic medicines have played an increasingly significant role in healthcare around the world and have changed standards of care for patients. Now, biopharmaceutical research and commitment to value-based care have prompted the pursuit of biosimilar drugs, or biologic drugs that are “highly similar” to approved biologics.
Allergic rhinitis is a common immune-mediated health condition that affects up to 60 million Americans annually. A chronic, inflammatory disease of the upper airways, allergic rhinitis can significantly affect patients’ quality of life (QOL) and productivity.
Sarilumab (Kevzara) is a novel interleukin (IL)-6 receptor inhibitor that was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on May 22, 2017, for the treatment of adults with moderately or severely active RA who have had an inadequate response or intolerance to 1 or more DMARDs.

Approximately 75% of breast cancers rely on ER signaling to grow and survive.2 Endocrine therapy, which blocks the growth-promoting activity of estrogen, represents the primary intervention for early- and advanced-stage ER-positive breast cancer.3 However, some patients do not respond to endocrine therapy (ie, de novo resistance), and some patients who initially respond to therapy have disease that progresses during therapy (ie, acquired resistance).3

An increased understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of RA has led to significant advances in biologic therapies in the past 15 years and has dramatically changed the treatment paradigm for RA.3 Currently, 4 classes of biologic DMARDs are available, including (1) the tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α inhibitors adalimu­mab, certolizumab pegol, etanercept, golimumab, and infliximab; (2) abatacept, which blocks T-cell costimulation via anti-CD80/86 inhibition; (3) the anti-CD20 agent that causes B-cell depletion, rituximab; and (4) the interleukin (IL)-6 receptor (IL-6R) blocker, tociliz­umab.

The program is designed to educate urologists, medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in treating patients with advanced prostate cancer.
Since the “War on Cancer” was declared in 1971, advances in cancer treatment and prevention have accomplished considerable success in reducing mortality and morbidity in many tumor types, and more Americans than ever are surviving cancer.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States, despite lower smoking rates and preventive efforts.
