Elizabeth R. Plimack, MD, on Bladder Cancer Highlights From the 2021 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium
2021 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium
Elizabeth R. Plimack, MD, of Fox Chase Cancer Center, discusses key abstracts discussed at this year’s meeting on bladder cancer and offers her views on the latest trends and findings (Abstracts 391, 393, 434).
Sumanta K. Pal, MD, of City of Hope, discusses phase II results from the SWOG 1500 study, which showed that compared with crizotinib and savolitinib, cabozantinib was the only agent that prolonged progression-free survival vs sunitinib in patients with metastatic papillary renal cell carcinoma (Abstract 270).
Elizabeth R. Plimack, MD, of Fox Chase Cancer Center, discusses phase III results from the KEYNOTE-426 study—specifically, an exploratory subgroup analysis of patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma who were randomly assigned to receive pembrolizumab plus axitinib and completed 2 years of treatment (Abstract 327).
Thomas Powles, MD, PhD, of Cancer Research UK Barts Centre, discusses phase III results from the EV-301 trial, which showed that enfortumab vedotin is the first therapy to demonstrate a significant survival advantage over standard chemotherapy in patients with previously treated locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (Abstract 393).
Felix Y. Feng, MD, of the University of California, San Francisco, discusses study findings showing that molecular determinants may help clinicians select patients with nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer who may derive the most benefit from apalutamide and other androgen-signaling inhibitors (Abstract 8).
Elizabeth R. Plimack, MD, of Fox Chase Cancer Center, discusses key abstracts discussed at this year’s meeting on renal cell carcinoma and offers her views on the latest trends and findings (Abstracts 269, 308, 270, 313).
