Lajos Pusztai, MD, PhD, on Breast Cancer: I-SPY2 Trial on Durvalumab, Olaparib, and Paclitaxel

AACR Virtual Annual Meeting 2020 I

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).

Edward B. Garon, MD, of the University of California, Los Angeles David Geffen School of Medicine, discusses KEYNOTE-189 trial findings that showed adding pembrolizumab to pemetrexed plus platinum—which previously was found to improve overall and progression-free survival—is also safe and has manageable toxicity in long-term use for patients with metastatic nonsquamous non–small cell lung cancer (Abstract CT085).

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).
