ESMO 2019 Congress
Ronald de Wit, MD, PhD, of the University Medical Center Rotterdam, discusses study findings which showed that cabazitaxel improved radiographic progression-free survival as well as overall survival in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (Abstract LBA13).
Aleix Prat, MD, PhD, of Hospital Clinic de Barcelona, discusses the findings of a meta-analysis showing that the HER2-E subtype may predict pathologic complete response beyond hormone receptor status in HER2-positive early breast cancer (Abstract 248P).
Maha H.A. Hussain, MD, of Northwestern University Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses the phase III PROfound trial results on the efficacy of olaparib in men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer whose tumors harbor alterations in DNA damage response genes and who had disease progression on prior hormone therapy (Abstract LBA12).
Robin L. Jones, MD, MBBS, of The Royal Marsden/Institute of Cancer Research, discusses the first phase III study in angiosarcoma, which showed no difference in outcome between pazopanib vs pazopanib plus the novel monoclonal antibody TRC105 (Abstract 1667O).
Isabelle Laure Ray-Coquard, MD, PhD, of the Centre Leon Bérard, discusses phase III study findings in patients with newly diagnosed, advanced ovarian cancer who received olaparib plus first-line bevacizumab maintenance treatment. Compared with placebo plus bevacizumab, olaparib improved progression-free survival, with the greatest benefit in women with BRCA mutations and positive homologous recombination deficiency status (Abstract LBA2).
Sungjune Kim, MD, PhD, of the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, discusses phase II study findings on the safety and tolerability of nivolumab/ipilimumab plus stereotactic body radiation therapy (Abstract 1321P).
