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

2024 ASCO GU Cancers Symposium

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).

Thomas Powles, MD, on RCC: Patient-Reported Outcomes With Belzutifan vs Everolimus

Thomas Powles, MD, of Barts Cancer Institute, Cancer Research UK Experimental Cancer Medicine Centre, and Queen Mary University of London, discusses outcomes reported by patients with previously treated renal cell carcinoma (RCC), taking part in the phase III LITESPARK-005 study. Belzutifan was associated with a prolonged time to deterioration, fewer disease-specific symptoms, and better quality of life compared with everolimus (Abstract 361).

David H.

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).

Umang Swami, MD, of Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah, describes the molecular and immunologic mechanisms of metastatic tropism in advanced prostate cancer, data that may facilitate future drug development. In patients with metastatic disease, specific sites are associated with differential overall survival, but the biological reasons have not been fully explored (Abstract 21).

Neeraj Agarwal, MD, of Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah, discusses results of the CONTACT-2 trial, which showed cabozantinib plus atezolizumab improved radiographic progression–free survival of patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer vs a second novel hormonal therapy (NHT) in patients who had experienced disease progression on a prior NHT and have extrapelvic nodal or visceral disease. The benefits were more pronounced in patients with liver metastasis and in those who previously received docetaxel (Abstract 18).
