OncLive On Air is a podcast from OncLive®, which provides oncology professionals with the resources and information they need to provide the best patient care.

In today’s episode, sponsored by Deciphera Pharmaceuticals, we had the pleasure of speaking with Mark Agulnik, MD, regarding updates in the treatment of patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). Dr Agulnik is a professor of clinical medicine, vice chair for faculty development in the Department of Medicine, and section chief of Sarcomas & Melanoma at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.

In our exclusive interview, Dr Agulnik spotlighted key updates from across the GIST landscape ahead of GIST Awareness Day on July 13, including how the heterogeneity of the disease can drive individual treatment decision-making; how the integration of ripretinib (Qinlock) has affected the treatment paradigm and ongoing research with the agent; and how other ongoing research within the GIST realm could further drive the evolution of the management of this malignancy.
