Jennifer K. Litton, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses study results of talazoparib vs chemotherapy in patients with BRCA1/2-mutated HER2-negative advanced breast cancer. In this final analysis, patient-reported outcomes continued to favor the PARP inhibitor, even though it did not improve overall survival compared with chemotherapy (Abstract CT071).

Kimlin T. Ashing, PhD, of City of Hope National Medical Center, discusses analyses that showed neighborhoods with lower-income and minority populations had a greater number of tobacco and vape shops, increased use of electronic nicotine delivery systems, and lower-priced tobacco products. This information may help public health efforts address the high rates of vaping among teenagers in these communities (Abstract CT087).

Lajos Pusztai, MD, PhD, of Yale Cancer Center, discusses study results on durvalumab in combination with olaparib and paclitaxel as neoadjuvant treatment in patients with high-risk HER2-negative stage II/III breast cancer. Compared with patients who received chemotherapy alone, the combination improved pathologic complete response, even in women with triple-negative breast cancer (Abstract CT011).
