Eric Pujade-Lauraine, MD, PhD, on First-Line Maintenance Therapy in Ovarian Cancer
SGO 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting on Womens Cancer
Eric Pujade-Lauraine, MD, PhD, of Hôpital Hôtel-Dieu, discusses results from the PAOLA-1ENGOT-ov25 trial on the use of homologous recombination–repair mutation gene panels and whether they can predict the efficacy of olaparib plus bevacizumab in first-line maintenance therapy for patients with ovarian cancer (ID# 10224).
Hyun C. Chung, MD, of Yonsei Cancer Center and Yonsei University College of Medicine, discusses phase II findings from the KEYNOTE-158 study, which support the use of pembrolizumab for patients with recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer that has progressed on or after chemotherapy and whose tumors express PD-L1.
Sandro Pignata, MD, PhD, of the Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori, discusses results from the ORZORA trial, which showed the efficacy of olaparib in patients with platinum-sensitive relapsed ovarian cancer is similar, whether they have a germline or somatic BRCA mutation. This information could prove useful for clinical practice (ID #10226).
Edward L. Trimble, MD, MPH, of the National Cancer Institute, discusses the World Health Organization’s global strategy to speed the elimination of cervical cancer through vaccination, screening, treatment, and training for multidisciplinary teams in gynecologic oncology care. This marks the first time that 194 countries have committed to such an effort (ID # 10203).
Anthony B. Costales, MD, of the Baylor College of Medicine, discusses results from the MIID-SOC trial, which explored the question of whether laparoscopic surgery for removal of ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer following neoadjuvant chemotherapy is feasible, safe, and provides similar outcomes as open surgery.
Shannon N. Westin, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses phase II results from the ENPAC trial, which showed the combination of enzalutamide, paclitaxel, and carboplatin yielded promising clinical outcomes in chemotherapy-naive advanced or recurrent endometrioid cancer (ID # 10244).
