Zev A. Wainberg, MD, of UCLA Medical Center, discusses phase II results from the FIGHT study, which combined bemarituzumab with modified FOLFOX6 in first-line treatment of advanced gastric/gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma. This is reportedly the first randomized trial of any FGFR inhibitor, validating this target in gastric cancer (Abstract 160).

Romain Cohen, MD, PhD, of the Mayo Clinic and Sorbonne University, discusses a post-hoc analysis of phase III results from the CALGB/SWOG 80702 study, which showed that adding the number of tumor deposits, a negative prognostic factor, to the count of lymph node metastases may improve the accuracy of TNM staging (Abstract 10).

Richard S. Finn, MD, of the UCLA Medical Center, discusses updated results from the IMbrave 150 study, which showed atezolizumab plus bevacizumab provides the longest overall survival seen in a front-line phase III study in advanced hepatocellular carcinoma, confirming this combination as the standard of care for patients with previously untreated, unresectable disease (Abstract 267).

Rocio Garcia-Carbonero, MD, of Hospital Universitario 12 De Octubre, discusses results of the phase II/III AXINET trial, which showed that axitinib plus long-acting release octreotide improved overall response compared with placebo and octreotide in patients with advanced grade 1 or 2 extrapancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. However, no significant improvement in progression-free survival was observed (Abstract 360).
