Mansoor Raza Mirza, MD, on Endometrial Cancer: Palbociclib Plus Letrozole in ER-Positive Disease
ESMO Virtual Congress 2020
Mansoor Raza Mirza, MD, of Copenhagen University Hospital, discusses phase II study results that showed the combination of palbociclib and letrozole, compared with placebo plus letrozole, improved progression-free survival in patients with estrogen receptor–positive advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer (Abstract LBA28).
Masahiro Tsuboi, MD, of Japan’s National Cancer Center Hospital East, discusses the phase III results from the ADAURA study, which showed a reduced risk of local and distant recurrence in patients with resected EGFR-mutated non–small cell lung cancer, reinforcing adjuvant osimertinib as an effective treatment (Abstract LBA1).
Benjamin Besse, MD, PhD, of the Gustave Roussy Cancer Centre, discusses results of the phase II PRINCEPS trial, which assessed, for the first time, the effect of just one injection of the immunotherapy atezolizumab before surgery in patients with resectable non–small cell lung cancer (Abstract 1215O).
Lisa A. Carey, MD, of the University of North Carolina, discusses phase III results from two IMpassion trials, 130 and 131, which explored, respectively, atezolizumab plus nab-paclitaxel vs placebo plus nab-paclitaxel in previously untreated locally advanced or metastatic triple-negative breast cancer and first-line paclitaxel with or without atezolizumab for unresectable disease (Abstracts LBA15 and LBA16).
Toni K. Choueiri, MD, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses the first results from the phase III CheckMate 9ER trial, which suggested the combination of nivolumab and cabozantinib is safe. It showed activity in progression-free and overall survival, as well as in overall response rates and may have a place in treating patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (Abstract 696O_PR).
David S. Hong, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses study findings on sotorasib, a novel, first-in-class, oral KRASG12C inhibitor. The agent demonstrated durable disease control in heavily pretreated patients with non–small cell lung cancer (Abstract 1257O).
