Anne Knisely, MD, on Ovarian Cancer and the Implications of Detecting Residual Disease and ctDNA

Anne Knisely, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses study findings showing that patients with ovarian cancer who undergo second-look laparoscopy and are found to have measurable residual disease (MRD) as well as circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) after front-line therapy have a particularly poor prognosis. These data suggest treatments should be individualized by stratifying risk, and front-line clinical trials of ovarian cancer should use MRD as a surrogate endpoint.

Mansoor R. Mirza, MD, of Copenhagen University Hospital, discusses follow-up results from the RUBY trial, showing that, for patients with primary advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer, dostarlimab-gxly plus chemotherapy followed by dostarlimab-gxly plus niraparib improved progression-free survival in the overall and subgroup populations. Given the potential role for PARP inhibitor maintenance, the study is ongoing to obtain overall survival data.

Brian M. Slomovitz, MD, of Mount Sinai Medical Center, Miami Beach, discusses additional phase III data from the innovaTV 301 trial, which showed that in patients with previously treated recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer, tisotumab vedotin-tftv was more efficacious than chemotherapy as second- or third-line treatment.
