Hyun C. Chung, MD, on Pembrolizumab for Advanced Cervical Cancer: Update From KEYNOTE-158
SGO 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting on Womens Cancer
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.
Emily Hinchcliff, MD, MPH, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses phase II results of durvalumab (anti–PD-L1) and tremelimumab (anti–CTLA-4) administered in combination vs sequentially for the treatment of recurrent platinum-resistant non–clear cell ovarian cancer (ID #10240).
Rebecca S. Kristeleit, MD, PhD, of the University College London and UCL Cancer Institute, discusses efficacy and safety results from the phase III ARIEL4 study, which showed that rucaparib improved progression-free survival vs standard-of-care chemotherapy in patients with BRCA-mutated, platinum-resistant, or platinum-sensitive relapsed ovarian cancer (ID #10191).
Andreas Obermair, MD, of the University of Queensland and Queensland Centre for Gynaecological Cancer Research, discusses data on a hormonal IUD used to treat women with the precursor lesion endometrial hyperplasia with atypia (EHA) and those with stage I endometrial adenocarcinoma (EAC). At 6 months, the data showed a complete pathologic response in 82% of patients with EHA and in 43% of those with EAC (ID# 10244).
Lauren Thomaier, MD, of the University of Minnesota, discusses the genetic variants found to be associated with an increase in chemotherapy-induced neuropathy symptoms in a cohort of gynecologic cancer survivors. Combining these variants with clinical characteristics may provide an important treatment tool (ID# 10253).
Amir A. Jazaeri, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses data on the safety and efficacy of adoptive cell transfer using autologous tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (LN-145) to treat patients with recurrent, metastatic, or persistent cervical carcinoma whose tumors have progressed on prior systemic therapy (ID # 10224).
