Daniel P. Petrylak, MD, of the Yale Cancer Center, discusses a primary phase II analysis of the TROPHY-U-01 study, cohort 2, which evaluated sacituzumab govitecan-hziy in platinum-ineligible patients with metastatic urothelial cancer that progressed after prior checkpoint inhibitor therapy. (Abstract 520).

The treatment of metastatic urothelial carcinoma has evolved over the past 10 years and really has come a long way. Around 2010, if a patient had metastatic bladder cancer, there were two options for platinum eligible patients, those included the MVAC chemotherapy regimen as well as gemcitabine and cisplatinum. Carboplatinum and gemcitabine was considered a standard of care for those patients who were not eligible to receive cisplatin based chemotherapy. Unfortunately, once a patient progressed after any of these regimens, the median survival was about six months. With the use of checkpoint inhibition therapy, as well as the ADCs or the antibody drug conjugates that are showing significant activity in urothelial carcinoma, we've been able to treat patients that have been otherwise refractory to treatment. So we do need more treatments for the treatment of refractory urothelial carcinoma, as well as platinum ineligible urothelial carcinoma. And that was the point of the second group of the TROPHY study. So we took patients who were ineligible to receive cisplatinum and treated those patients with Sacituzumab govitecan. We found that the response rate was 32% in all patients treated. Additionally, we found that in those patients who did not receive either prior chemotherapy or enfortumab vedotin, that the response rate was more than 50%. The toxicities that we observed with this study included neutropenia as well as diarrhea, and these were consistent with what was reported with the first cohort of the TROPHY study. So in summary, Sacituzumab govitecan has activity in platinum ineligible urothelial carcinoma, and further studies are being performed to look at the combination of Sacituzumab with checkpoint inhibition therapy. Additionally, there are studies that are ongoing with Sacituzumab combined with cisplatin in cisplatinum eligible patients. So this drug can form the core for the development of future therapies for refractory, as well as first line urothelial carcinoma.

Laurence Albiges, MD, PhD, of France’s Gustave Roussy Cancer Centre, discusses interim results from the CaboPoint study, which evaluated cabozantinib as second-line treatment in patients with unresectable, locally advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma with a clear cell component. Disease in the study participants had progressed after prior treatment with ipilimumab and nivolumab in combination or combined with VEGF-targeted therapy. (Abstract 606).

Scott T. Tagawa, MD, of Weill Cornell Medicine, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, discusses study results showing that, the anti-PSMA (prostate-specific membrane antigen) monoclonal antibody J591 with ketoconazole and hydrocortisone, when radiolabeled with lutetium-177, leads to improved 18-month metastasis-free survival vs radiolabeling with indium-111 in patients with nonmetastatic (M0) castration-resistant prostate cancer. This supports the development of anti-PSMA radioimmunotherapy, although the optimal radionuclide and targeting agent are unknown. (Abstract LBA21).

The data showed that rucaparib improved radiographic progression-free survival compared with either docetaxel or abiraterone and enzalutamide in disease with BRCA1/2 alterations. (Abstract 18).

The findings suggest that patients whose disease does not respond to bacillus Calmette-Guérin or who declined or were ineligible for a radical cystectomy may benefit from pembrolizumab monotherapy. (Abstract LBA442).
