Michael Gnant, MD, on HR-Positive, HER2-Negative Early Breast Cancer: Trial Results With Palbociclib Treatment

2021 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium

Advertisement

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) .

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).

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).

Lisa A. Carey, MD, of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses findings from a pooled analysis of the MONALEESA-2, -3, and -7 trials. Among the findings was a consistent overall survival benefit with ribociclib plus endocrine therapy for patients with luminal A, luminal B, and HER2E breast cancer subtypes. Patients with the basal-like subtype did not derive a benefit from ribociclib, but the sample size was small (Abstract GS1-04).

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).

Peter Schmid, MD, PhD, of Barts Cancer Institute, discusses phase III findings from KEYNOTE-522, in which researchers found a generally consistent event-free survival benefit among patients with early-stage high-risk triple-negative breast cancer who were treated with neoadjuvant pembrolizumab plus chemotherapy followed by adjuvant pembrolizumab (Abstract GS1-01).
