2024 ASCO GU Cancers Symposium

Advertisement

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).

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).

David H. Aggen, MD, PhD, on Advanced Bladder Cancer: HER2 and PD-L1 Immunohistochemistry and HER2 Genomic Alterations

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).

Neeraj Agarwal, MD, on Prostate Cancer: Phase III Trial Update on Cabozantinib, Atezolizumab, and Hormonal Therapy

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).
