Two Lenvatinib Combos Induce Survival Benefit Over Sunitinib in Advanced RCC

February 15, 2021

Findings from the phase 3 CLEAR trial showed that the addition of lenvatinib to either pembrolizumab or everolimus led to an improvement in survival and response rates in comparison with sunitinib monotherapy in the first-line setting for patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma.

High Disease Control Rate Achieved With Belzutifan and Cabozantinib in ccRCC

February 15, 2021

The addition of the oral hypoxia-inducible factor 2α inhibitor belzutifan to cabozantinib led to disease control in a majority of patients with previously treated advanced clear cell renal cell carcinoma, according to preliminary results from a phase 2 trial presented at the 2021 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium.

Cabozantinib Improves PFS Versus Sunitinib in Papillary RCC

February 14, 2021

Cabozantinib reduced the risk of disease progression or death by 40% in comparison with sunitinib in patients with metastatic papillary renal cell carcinoma, according to findings from the randomized phase 2 SWOG 1500 study.

Fewer PSA Screenings May Be Associated With Metastatic Prostate Cancer Cases on the Rise

February 13, 2021

An increase in metastatic prostate cancer cases were reported in the United States and investigators are suggesting that this may be due, in part, to reductions in prostate-specific antigen, according to epidemiologic data from a study presented during the 2021 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium.

Cabozantinib Induces Intracranial/Extracranial Responses in Metastatic RCC

February 13, 2021

In patient with metastatic renal cell carcinoma who have brain metastases, treatment with cabozantinib displayed significant intracranial and extracranial, results from a retrospective analysis presented during the 2021 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium show.

Long-Term Responders of Apalutamide Identified With Molecular Signature in nmCRPC

February 13, 2021

A molecular signature has been identified that can characterize long-term responders from treatment with apalutamide and androgen deprivation therapy in patients with nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, according to findings, presented at the 2021 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium.

High CR Achieved With Addition of N-803 to BCG in BCG-Unresponsive NMIBC CIS

February 13, 2021

In patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer carcinoma in-situ who were unresponsive to Bacillus Calmette-Guerin, the addition of N-803 induced a high rate of complete responses, findings from a cohort of the phase 2/3 QUILT-3.032 study showed.

18F-DCFPyL, PSMA-Targeted PET Imaging Agent, Provokes High CLR and PPV

February 13, 2021

Localized metastatic lesions were detected with a high correct localization rate (CLR) and positive predictive value (PPV) with the investigational prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)–targeted PET imaging agent 18F-DCFPyL.

Apalutamide With ADT Maintains OS Benefit in mCSPC

February 13, 2021

Apalutamide in combination with androgen deprivation therapy led to a reduction in the risk of death of 35% in comparison with ADT alone for patients with metastatic castration-sensitive prostate cancer in a final analysis of the phase 3 TITAN trial.
