Basal Insulin Analogs– What Does it Mean for the Payer?
Sponsored by Sanofi 

Health plans & PBMs are faced with navigating an increasing number of therapies to treat Type 2 diabetes, while challenged by therapeutic inertia and low rates of medication adherence by patients.  These factors contribute to prolonged periods of hyperglycemia/hypoglycemia leading to increased risk of patients developing diabetes-related complications.  This program will discuss the current guidelines for Type 2 Diabetes, appropriate treatment options, placement in therapy for newer basal insulin analogs, and review biosimilar interchangeability of basal insulins.  The program will focus on the role of basal insulins in addressing the challenges facing clinicians and patients in achieving glucose control through real world data analysis.

State of the Science in Oncology: The Era of Antibody Drug Conjugates
Sponsored by Seattle Genetics

In this wave of innovation in Oncology, antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) continue to improve outcomes for patients with cancer. With the proven ADC technology platform leading the way of cutting-edge cancer research, improvements to the science and technology have led to increased development and approval of newer ADCs. Scientific advancements have also led to the potential of combining ADCs with treatments such as immunotherapy to further improve outcomes. This session will provide an overview of the evolving Oncology landscape, discuss the state of ADC technology, and highlight FDA-approved and novel ADCs on the horizon.
