David H. Aggen, MD, PhD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses reportedly the first data to describe an inverse correlation between HER2 immunohistochemistry expression and PD-L1 combined positive score. According to Dr. Aggen, these and other findings by his team may provide a foundation for further HER2-directed advanced bladder cancer studies (Abstract 538).

Michiel S. Van Der Heijden, MD, PhD, on Metastatic Urothelial Carcinoma: Phase III Trial Data on Enfortumab Vedotin Plus Pembrolizumab vs Chemotherapy

Michiel S. Van Der Heijden, MD, PhD, of the Netherlands Cancer Institute, discusses phase III results from the global EV-302 study, showing that enfortumab vedotin-ejfv plus pembrolizumab improves outcomes in patients with previously untreated locally advanced metastatic urothelial carcinoma compared with chemotherapy. Overall survival benefit was observed across select prespecified subgroups. According to Dr. Van Der Heijden, this immunotherapy combination is a potential new standard of care for first-line locally advanced metastatic urothelial carcinoma (Abstract LBA530).

Enrique Grande, MD, on Adrenocortical Carcinoma: Phase II Results on Cabozantinib Plus Atezolizumab

Enrique Grande, MD, of MD Anderson Cancer Center Madrid, discusses findings from the CABATEN/GETNE-T1914 study, in which cabozantinib plus atezolizumab showed modest activity in patients with locally advanced or metastatic adrenocortical carcinoma, a rare malignancy with a poor prognosis and limited therapeutic options. According to Dr. Grande, the existence of long-lasting responders makes it worthwhile to continue investigating predictive factors that may help to select patients for this combination therapy (Abstract 1).

Andrew Johns, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses efficacy, safety, and tolerability data on tivozanib. The agent yielded a modest clinical benefit in a minority of patients with advanced clear cell renal cell carcinoma who received prior immune checkpoint–based therapies, cabozantinib, and lenvatinib with or without everolimus (Abstract 419).
