Daniel P. Petrylak, MD, on Prostate Cancer: First-in-Human Study of ARV-110 Shows Antitumor Activity
ASCO20 Virtual Scientific Program
Daniel P. Petrylak, MD, of the Yale Cancer Center, discusses early data on ARV-110, an androgen receptor proteolysis–targeting chimera degrader, demonstrating antitumor activity in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer after treatment with enzalutamide and abiraterone (Abstract 3500).
Richard L. Schilsky, MD, Chief Medical Officer of ASCO, talks about some of the most important and practice-changing findings presented this year at the ASCO20 Virtual Scientific Program, including the use of targeted and immunotherapies in earlier lines of therapy, where they have made a significant impact.
Scott Kopetz, MD, PhD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses phase III results of the BEACON CRC study, which confirmed that, compared with standard chemotherapy, encorafenib plus cetuximab with or without binimetinib improved overall survival and objective response rate in previously treated patients with BRAF V600E–mutated metastatic colorectal cancer (Abstract 4001).
David R. Wise, MD, PhD, of New York University Perlmutter Cancer Center, summarizes three important studies in prostate cancer: circulating tumor cell count as a prognostic marker of PSA response and progression in metastatic castration-sensitive disease; new phenotypic subtypes; and how circulating tumor DNA dynamics associate with treatment response and radiologic progression-free survival (Abstracts 5506, 5507, and 5508).
Christopher Nutting, MD, PhD, of the Royal Marsden Hospital and Institute of Cancer Research, discusses phase III results from the first study to demonstrate the functional benefit of swallow-sparing intensity-modulated radiotherapy in oro- and hypopharyngeal cancers (Abstract 6508).
Howard A. Burris III, MD, FACP, FASCO, Immediate Past President of ASCO and current Society Board Chair, talks about how the meeting went, with its record-breaking attendance and new format.
