Jonathan E. Rosenberg, MD, on Urothelial Cancer: New Conclusions About Durvalumab Plus Olaparib
2022 ASCO Genitourinary Cancers Symposium
Jonathan E. Rosenberg, MD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses phase II findings from the BAYOU trial, which studied durvalumab in combination with olaparib for first-line treatment of platinum-ineligible patients with unresectable, stage IV urothelial carcinoma. Because secondary analyses indicated a potential progression-free survival benefit with this combination, there may be a role for PARP inhibitors in the treatment of advanced disease with homologous recombination repair mutation (Abstract 437).
Matthew R. Smith, PhD, MD, of Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, discusses overall survival findings from the ARASENS trial, which assessed the efficacy of the androgen receptor inhibitor darolutamide vs placebo in combination with androgen-deprivation therapy and docetaxel for patients with metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (Abstract 13).
Xin Gao, MD, of Massachusetts General Hospital, discusses phase I/II findings on bavdegalutamide, an androgen receptor protein degrader, which showed clinical activity in heavily pretreated patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer who received one to two prior novel hormonal agents.
Fred Saad, MD, of the University of Montreal Health Centre, discusses phase III findings demonstrating for the first time the clinical benefits of olaparib plus abiraterone in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, irrespective of their homologous recombination repair mutation status. This regimen led to significantly longer radiographic progression-free survival than placebo plus abiraterone (Abstract 11).
Daniel P. Petrylak, MD, of Yale Cancer Center, discusses new data on the antitumor activity of neoadjuvant treatment with enfortumab vedotin-ejfv monotherapy in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer who are not eligible for cisplatin.
Axel S. Merseburger, MD, of the University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, discusses results from a phase IIIb study of chemotherapy-naive patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer who have been treated with docetaxel plus prednisolone and experienced disease progression on enzalutamide. The data suggest that continued enzalutamide plus docetaxel improved progression-free survival compared with placebo plus docetaxel (Abstract 15).
