Currently, no FDA-approved therapies are available to address the need of patients with advanced/recurrent endometrial cancer, underscoring a need to develop novel strategies like the combination of lenvatinib and weekly paclitaxel.
Despite researchers compiling data from an equal-access system and adjusting for age, diagnosis period, tumor stage, tumor histology/grade, and whether the patient had adjuvant treatment, the overall survival disparity between Black and White women with endometrial cancer persisted.
High responses to single-agent dostarlimab-gxly were seen in patients with endometrial cancer who had a high tumor mutational burden, irrespective of mismatch repair or microsatellite stability status.
In an interview with Targeted Oncology™, Shannon N. Westin, MD, MPH, FACOG, discussed the need for the DUO-E trial in the endometrial cancer space and the unique patient population the study will evaluate.
Shannon Westin, MD, MPH, FACOG, a gynecologic oncologist at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses the use of durvalumab with or without olaparib for the treatment of endometrial cancers.
The FDA has accepted a new supplemental biologics license application for pembrolizumab, an anti-PD-1 therapy, as a single agent for the treatment of patients with advanced endometrial carcinoma that is microsatellite instability-high or mismatch repair deficient, who have diseased progression following prior systemic therapy in any setting and are not candidates for curative surgery or radiation.
In an interview with Targeted Oncology, Bobbie J. Rimel, MD, discussed the phase 2 NRG-GY012 results and the next step for cediranib plus olaparib as treatment of recurrent or metastatic endometrial cancer.
The FDA has approved the combination of lenvatinib and pembrolizumab for the treatment of patients with advanced endometrial cancer that is not microsatellite instability–high or mismatch repair deficient, who have disease progression following prior systemic treatment and who are not candidates for curative surgery or radiation.
