Jenny F. Seligmann, MBChB, PhD, on Colorectal Cancer: Adavosertib Compared With Active Monitoring

ESMO Congress 2021

Advertisement

Jenny F. Seligmann, MBChB, PhD, of the University of Leeds, discusses phase II findings that suggest adavosertib improved progression-free survival, compared with active monitoring, by inhibiting the WEE1 kinase in patients with RAS- and TP53-mutant metastatic colorectal cancer. In the trial, adavosertib’s activity tended to be even greater in left-sided tumors (Abstract 382O).

Gabriel N. Hortobagyi, MD, on Advanced Breast Cancer Treated With Endocrine Therapy and Ribociclib

Gabriel N. Hortobagyi, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses results from the MONALEESA-2 trial, which showed that adding the CDK4/6 inhibitor ribociclib to first-line hormonal therapy prolongs survival by 1 year for postmenopausal women with hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative advanced breast cancer. As a result, he believes it should be considered the preferred treatment option (Abstract LBA17).

Naveen S. Vasudev, PhD, MBChB, of the University of Leeds, discusses phase II results from the PRISM trial, which showed that giving ipilimumab every 12 weeks instead of every 3 weeks, in combination with nivolumab, led to lower rates of grade 3 and 4 toxicities in patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma. Efficacy appeared to be comparable between both arms (Abstract LBA29).

Neeraj Agarwal, MD, of Hunstman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah, discusses efficacy and safety results from the COSMIC-021 study, in which cabozantinib plus atezolizumab demonstrated clinically meaningful activity and a manageable safety profile in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer. The findings support a phase III study of these agents vs a second line of novel hormonal therapy (Abstract LBA24).

Dieter Hörsch, MD, of Germany’s Central Clinic in Bad Berka, discusses phase III results from the SPINET trial, the largest prospective study to date of the somatostatin analog lanreotide autogel. The study suggests that this agent may prove to be an appropriate treatment option for patients with somatostatin receptor–positive bronchopulmonary neuroendocrine tumors, especially typical carcinoids (Abstract 1096O).

Gerhardt Attard, MD, PhD, on Prostate Cancer: Abiraterone and Prednisolone in the STAMPEDE Protocol

Gerhardt Attard, MD, PhD, of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, discusses findings that show 2 years of abiraterone acetate plus prednisolone-based treatment improves metastasis-free and overall survival in men with high-risk nonmetastatic prostate cancer. The data suggest this combination regimen might be considered a new standard of care (Abstract LBA4).
