Compared with the median PFS reported in the durvalumab arm of the phase 3 PACIFIC trial in patients with stage III non–small cell lung cancer, the median real-world progression-free survival with durvalumab was higher.
In patients with HER2-positive, metastatic colorectal cancer, fam-trastuzumab deruxtecan-nxki led to improved responses in patients with higher HER2 expression at baseline, whereas responses were seen irrespective of RAS- and PIK3CA mutation status and blood tumor mutational burden levels.
In patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer, durvalumab added to platinum/etoposide chemotherapy continued to demonstrate an overall survival improvement compared with chemotherapy alone with a favorable safety profile, according to updated data from the phase 3 CASPIAN trial.
In patients with estrogen receptor–positive, HER2-negative early breast cancer, giredestrant resulted in a greater relative reduction in Ki67 score from baseline to week 2 of a window of opportunity phase vs anastrozole.
Jesús García-Foncillas, MD, PhD, discusses the rationale behind comparing the efficacy of larotrectinib and entrectinib head-to-head in patients with metastatic solid tumors with neurotrophic gene fusions.
Results from the MRTX-500 trial show that sitravatinib administered in combination with nivolumab can elicit durable response and lead to robust survival outcomes for patients with non-small cell lung cancer who progressed after deriving benefit from treatment with a checkpoint inhibitor and/or platinum doublet chemotherapy.
When comparing de-escalated neoadjuvant ado-trastuzumab emtansine, with or without endocrine therapy, vs trastuzumab plus endocrine therapy baseline tumor immunogenicity may be associated with higher pathologic complete response rates and favorable outcomes in hormone receptor-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-positive early stage breast cancer.
