2023 ASCO Annual Meeting

Thierry Conroy, MD, of the Institut de Cancérologie de Lorraine, discusses phase III findings from the PRODIGE 23 trial, showing that neoadjuvant chemotherapy with mFOLFIRINOX followed by chemoradiotherapy, surgery, and adjuvant chemotherapy improved all outcomes, including overall survival, in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer compared with standard chemoradiotherapy, surgery, and adjuvant chemotherapy (Abstract LBA3504).

Prodige 23 is a phase three randomized trial that we perform in France in 35 centers. And we have presented the seven-year result of that study. And we confirm all the benefit we had in this study, and we already published. It was a comparison between the standard of care preoperative chemoradiation ventium surgery and six month of adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with locally advanced rectal cancer. And we compare it to three month of induction chemotherapy using the modify Folfirinox regimen than preoperative chemo radiation TME and three month of adjuvant chemotherapy. All patients receive six month of chemotherapy. We have now a follow-up of 82 month. It means quite seven year, and we confirm a very important reduction of metastases as from 10%. We have still a benefit in the primary endpoint, which is DFS. Also benefiting cancer specific survival. One important point is that we had no increase in local relapse in the experimental arm, which is lower than 5%. And the other point is that the survival at metastatic disease was exactly the same in the two arms, and it was not reduced in the experimental arm. We had an overall survival benefit, and this is the major point of this study, as we had the 7% overall survival benefit when quality of life improve faster and higher levels in the experimental alarm. To conclude, this is the very positive trial and very good news for patients. The next step will be to know if with induction chemotherapy with Folfirinox some patients may not receive chemo chemo radiation, especially in case of good response to induction chemotherapy. The other point is to know if induction chemotherapy will increase the rate of organ preservation.

Rana R. McKay, MD, of the University of California, San Diego, and Toni K. Choueiri, MD, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School, discuss results from the phase III CONTACT-03 study, showing that, for patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC), adding the PD-L1 inhibitor atezolizumab to cabozantinib did not improve clinical outcomes compared with treatment with cabozantinib alone. In addition, higher toxicities were observed in the combination arm (Abstract LBA4500).

Alicia K. Morgans, MD, MPH, and Praful Ravi, MRCP, MBBChir, both of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discuss an individual patient-data analysis of randomized trials from the ICECAP collaborative. A PSA nadir of ≥ 0.1 ng/mL within 6 months after radiotherapy completion was prognostic for prostate cancer–specific, metastasis-free, and overall survival in patients receiving radiotherapy plus androgen-deprivation therapy for localized prostate cancer. These findings may help identify patients for therapy de-escalation trials (Abstract 5002).

Cathy Eng, MD, of Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, and Thejus Jayakrishnan, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute, discuss significant differences in the citrate cycle, a core pathway of cellular metabolism associated with colorectal cancer. Metabolomic differences impacted by environmental exposures (arginine biosynthesis and dietary red meat) were also noted, suggesting possible links with younger age of onset in this disease (Abstract 3510).

Narjust Florez, MD, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Ticiana Leal, MD, of Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, discuss the use of tumor treating fields therapy, in which electric fields disrupt processes critical for cancer cell viability. Already approved by the FDA to treat glioblastoma and mesothelioma, the treatment has extended overall survival in this phase III study of patients with metastatic non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with progression on or after platinum-based chemotherapy, without exacerbating systemic toxicities (Abstract LBA9005).

Manufacturing CD5 CAR T cells with tyrosine kinase inhibitors seemed to improve their potency and antitumor activity (Abstract 7002).
