Aditya Bardia, MD, MPH, on HR-Positive, HER2-Negative Advanced Breast Cancer: New Findings on Datopotamab Deruxtecan vs Chemotherapy
Aditya Bardia, MD, MPH, of Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, discusses updated phase III results from the TROPION-Breast01 study. The data showed an improvement in progression-free survival with datopotamab deruxtecan compared with investigator’s choice of chemotherapy across all subgroups of patients with inoperable or metastatic hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative breast cancer who have received one to two prior lines of chemotherapy (Abstract GS02-01).
Oleg Gluz, MD, of the West German Study Group and Breast Center Niederrhein, discusses the impact of age and ovarian function suppression in response to preoperative endocrine treatment for both pre- and postmenopausal patients with early-stage breast cancer. He describes ways in which the outcome data of the ADAPTcycle study might influence clinical decisions (Abstract LBO1-05).
Reshma Jagsi, MD, DPhil, of Emory University Winship Cancer Institute, discusses the IDEA trial of endocrine therapy without radiotherapy after breast-conserving surgery for postmenopausal patients between the ages of 50 and 69 with stage I breast cancer. The regimen demonstrated a low risk of relapse in this population, with a genomic assay used in combination with classic clinical and biological features for treatment selection (Abstract GS02-08).
Hope S. Rugo, MD, of the University of California, San Francisco Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses patient-reported outcomes from the phase III CAPItello-291 study; the trial centered on adding capivasertib to fulvestrant in patients with aromatase inhibitor–resistant, hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative advanced breast cancer. Patients treated with capivasertib and fulvestrant reported maintained health-related quality of life longer than those treated with placebo and fulvestrant (Abstract PS02-02).
Cynthia X. Ma, MD, PhD, of Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, discusses phase I findings showing the safety and tolerability of copanlisib and fulvestrant in combination with continuous or intermittent abemaciclib in patients with estrogen receptor–positive, HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer. Preliminary antitumor activity, which was observed, will be further examined in the phase II trial (ClinicalTrials.gov identifier NCT03939897) (Abstract PS17-06).
Amy Tiersten, MD, of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Tisch Cancer Institute, discusses findings from the ASPIRE trial, which showed the combination of anastrozole, palbociclib, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab in the front-line setting was well tolerated and effective, with a clinical benefit rate of 97% in patients with previously untreated hormone receptor–positive, HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer (Abstract RF02-01).
