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).

The study showed this combination may be efficacious as first-line therapy for patients with metastatic urothelial carcinoma, including those who are ineligible for cisplatin. Further investigation with a focus on predictive biomarkers is ongoing (Abstract 539).
