Ann S. LaCasce, MD, on Hodgkin Lymphoma: PET-Adapted Therapy for Bulky Disease
2021 ASCO Annual Meeting
Ann S. LaCasce, MD, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses results from the CALGB 50801 Alliance study, which showed that a PET scan–adapted approach may reduce the need for radiation treatment and may improve progression-free outcomes in patients with stage I/II bulky classic Hodgkin lymphoma (Abstract 7507).
Terry P. Mamounas, MD, MPH, of the University of Florida Health Cancer Center, discusses results from the NRG Oncology/NSABP B-42 study, which examined the Breast Cancer Index and its ability to predict whether extended treatment with letrozole benefits patients with hormone receptor–positive breast cancer (Abstract 501).
Ingrid A. Mayer, MD, of Vanderbilt University Medical Center, discusses phase III results from a trial that showed patients with triple-negative breast cancer who had residual invasive disease after neoadjuvant chemotherapy had lower-than-expected invasive disease–free survival, regardless of study treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy or capecitabine (Abstract 605).
Vamsidhar Velcheti, MD, of New York University, discusses overall survival and exploratory subgroup analyses from the phase II CodeBreaK 100 trial, which evaluated the use of sotorasib in pretreated KRAS G12C–mutant non–small cell lung cancer (Abstract 9003).
Matt D. Galsky, MD, of the Tisch Cancer Institute at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, discusses results from a phase II trial designed to test gemcitabine and cisplatin plus nivolumab as neoadjuvant therapy in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer and to better predict benefit in those who opted out of cystectomy (Abstract 4503).
Sibylle Loibl, MD, PhD, of the German Breast Group, discusses results from the phase III GeparNUEVO study, which investigated neoadjuvant durvalumab in addition to anthracycline/taxane-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy in patients with early triple-negative breast cancer (Abstract 506).
