Pralsetinib Demonstrates Significant Findings in RET+ Solid Tumors as FDA Grants Priority Review

Pralsetinib Demonstrates Significant Findings in RET+ Solid Tumors as FDA Grants Priority Review

June 1st 2020, 12:00am

Targeted Oncology's Coverage of the ASCO Virtual Scientific Program

"The ARROW trial results presented today during the ASCO virtual meeting showed that patients with RET fusion–positive lung cancer treated with the selective RET inhibitor pralsetinib had durable responses. In addition to supporting the development of pralsetinib across a broad population, these data highlight the urgency to test [patients with] lung cancer with next-generation sequencing so that eligible patients may be identified for treatment."

Updated Data Displays Better OS With Use of Alectinib Over Crizotinib in ALK+ NSCLC

May 31st 2020, 8:30pm

Targeted Oncology's Coverage of the ASCO Virtual Scientific Program

Patients with ALK-positive non–small cell lung cancer showed clinically meaningful improvement in overall survival when receiving alectinib, a highly selective second-generation TKI, versus those treated with crizotinib, according to updated data from the pivotal phase 3 ALEX trial presented at the 2020 ASCO Virtual Scientific Program.

Investigation of Tepotinib Shows Durable Benefit in NSCLC With a METex14 Skipping Mutation

Investigation of Tepotinib Shows Durable Benefit in NSCLC With a METex14 Skipping Mutation

May 31st 2020, 8:15pm

Targeted Oncology's Coverage of the ASCO Virtual Scientific Program

Durable clinical activity was demonstrated with tepotinib, an oral, highly selective MET inhibitor, in patients with locally advanced or metastatic non–small cell lung cancer and a MET exon 14 skipping mutation identified through liquid or tissue biopsy. This data was from the phase 2 VISION trial presented during the at the 2020 Virtual Scientific Meeting and published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Targeted Oncology's Coverage of the ASCO Virtual Scientific Program

According to findings from the phase 1b COSMIC-021 trial presented at the 2020 ASCO Virtual Scientific Program, cabozantinib and atezolizumab demonstrated clinically meaningful activity in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, including those with high-risk clinical features.

Statistical Analyses Confirm Benefit of Cabazitaxel Over Abiraterone or Enzalutamide in mCRPC

Statistical Analyses Confirm Benefit of Cabazitaxel Over Abiraterone or Enzalutamide in mCRPC

May 31st 2020, 7:15pm

Targeted Oncology's Coverage of the ASCO Virtual Scientific Program

Stratified multivariate analysis as well as efficacy from multiple treatment time points confirmed the benefit of cabazitaxel over abiraterone acetate or enzalutamide as a standard treatment in men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer who were previously treated with docetaxel and either of those 2 androgen receptor-targeted agents, according to results presented during the 2020 American Society of Clinical Oncology Virtual Scientific Program.
