Reshma Jagsi, MD, DPhil, on Early-Stage Breast Cancer: 5-Year Outcomes With Endocrine Therapy and Breast-Conserving Surgery
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).
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).
Eleftherios P. Mamounas, MD, of Orlando Health Cancer Institute, discusses primary outcomes from the NRG Oncology/NSABP B-51/RTOG 1304 study of locoregional irradiation in patients with biopsy-proven axillary node involvement at presentation who become pathologically node-negative after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (Abstract GS02-07).
Sherene Loi, MD, PhD, of Australia’s Peter McCallum Cancer Centre, discusses recent data showing that for patients with stage I/II triple-negative breast cancer, 12 weeks of a neoadjuvant nonanthracycline chemotherapy regimen with nivolumab may be efficacious with either concurrent or lead-in nivolumab. Those with immune-enriched tumors had high pathologic complete response rates, identifying a subpopulation for whom a 12-week anthracycline-free chemotherapy regimen with nivolumab may be appropriate (Abstract LBO1-03).
Aditya Bardia, MD, MPH, of Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center, discusses phase III findings from the KEYNOTE-756 study, which showed that adding pembrolizumab to chemotherapy increases the pathologic complete response rate and lowers the residual cancer burden in patients with early-stage, high-risk ER-positive or HER2-negative breast cancer (Abstract GS01-02).
Senthil Damodaran, MD, PhD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses final results from the FOENIX-MBC2 study of the efficacy and safety of futibatinib in patients with locally advanced or metastatic hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative breast cancer harboring high-level FGFR1 gene amplification. Futibatinib plus fulvestrant showed antitumor activity in those whose disease had progressed on prior CDK4/6 inhibitors (Abstract RF01-04).
