2021 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium

Kevin Kalinsky, MD, of the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University, discusses updated phase III results from the SWOG S1007 (RxPONDER) study of women with one to three positive lymph nodes, and hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative breast cancer. The data showed that postmenopausal women with recurrence scores (RS) from 0 to 25 continue not to benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy, whereas premenopausal women with a RS from 0 to 25 did benefit from the addition of chemotherapy to endocrine therapy (Abstract GS2-07).

Patricia A. Ganz, MD, of the University of California, Los Angeles, discusses quality-of-life results from the phase III OlympiA study of adjuvant olaparib after (neo)adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with germline BRCA1/2 mutations and high-risk HER2-negative early breast cancer (Abstract GS4-09).

Michael Gnant, MD, of the Medical University of Vienna, discusses phase III findings from the PALLAS study, which showed that adding 2 years of palbociclib to ongoing adjuvant endocrine therapy did not improve survival for patients with stage II to III hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative early breast cancer. Dr. Gnant also talks about whether any correlative studies hint at patient subgroups that this regimen may benefit (Abstract GS1-07) .

Komal Jhaveri, MD, on Triple-Negative and Metastatic Breast Cancers: New Data on Neratinib, Fulvestrant, and Trastuzumab

Komal Jhaveri, MD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses the latest updates from the SUMMIT trial, which explored the combinations of neratinib/fulvestrant/trastuzumab and neratinib plus trastuzumab, as well as fulvestrant alone. The combination regimens appeared to benefit patients with hormone–receptor positive, HER2-mutated metastatic breast cancer who have had prior exposure to CDK4/6 inhibitors, and those with HER2-mutated triple-negative disease (Abstract GS4-10).

Sara A. Hurvitz, MD, of the University of California, Los Angeles Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses phase III findings from the DESTINY-Breast03 trial, which compared ado-trastuzumab deruxtecan (T-DXd) with standard-of-care trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) in patients with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer. T-DXd showed superior progression-free survival across subgroups of patients previously treated with trastuzumab and a taxane, including those with brain metastases (Abstract GS3-01).

Meredith M. Regan, ScD, on Early Breast Cancer: Updated Results From the TEXT and SOFT Trials

Meredith M. Regan, ScD, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses findings that point to the potential benefits of using adjuvant exemestane plus ovarian function suppression (OFS) to treat premenopausal women with hormone receptor–positive early breast cancer. This conclusion came after 13 years of median follow-up on the TEXT and SOFT trials, during which this regimen was compared with tamoxifen and OFS (Abstract GS2-05).
