Kathleen N. Moore, MD, MS, discusses the challenges with utilizing immune-targeted therapy for ovarian cancer, expands on the impact of the tumor microenvironment on the effectiveness of immune checkpoint inhibitors, and details ongoing research with different treatment approaches in ovarian cancer.
The triplet combination of sintilimab, chidamide, and bevacizumab resulted in a high 18-week progression-free survival rate with a favorable toxicity profile in patients with microsatellite stable or mismatch repair–proficient metastatic colorectal cancer, according to data from the phase 2 CAPability-01 trial.
Lyudmila A. Bazhenova, MD, expanded on key considerations when navigating the use of perioperative immunotherapy for patients with or without oncogenically-driven lung cancers, the importance of multidisciplinary collaboration when deciding on a treatment plan, and the need for increased and earlier implementation of biomarker testing in all patients with lung cancer.
Drs Lunning and Jacobson discuss the characteristics of follicular lymphoma that may prompt aggressive treatment, the potential optimal role of CAR T-cell therapy in the third line and beyond, and how the toxicity profiles of different CAR T-cell products compare with each other.
Pembrolizumab continued to demonstrate at trend toward improved overall survival compared with chemotherapy in patients with microsatellite instability–high or mismatch repair–deficient metastatic colorectal cancer.
The FDA has granted fast track designation to zotatifin for use in combination with fulvestrant and abemaciclib as second- or third-line therapy for the treatment of patients with estrogen receptor-positive, HER2-negative advanced or metastatic breast cancer with disease progression following treatment with endocrine therapy and a CDK4/6 inhibitor.
Bradley J. Monk, MD, FACOG, FACS, and Paolo Tarantino, MD, discuss key data with B7-H4–directed antibody-drug conjugates across solid tumor types, the evolving role of antibody-drug conjugates in gynecologic cancers, and the importance of determining optimal sequencing with these agents in breast cancer.
The FDA has granted clearance for an investigational new drug application for a phase 1/2 safety lead-in trial investigating the engineered tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte KSQ-001EX in patients with melanoma, head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, and non–small cell lung cancer.
Nadofaragene firadenovec-vncg led to encouraging rates of high-grade recurrence-free survival and overall survival in patients with high-risk, BCG-unresponsive non–muscle invasive bladder cancer with carcinoma in situ with or without papillary tumors.
Biagio Ricciuti, MD, discusses the need to improve the identification of patients with advanced non–small cell lung cancer that benefit most from immune checkpoint inhibition.

Telisotuzumab vedotin produced meaningful response rates and other clinically relevant outcomes in patients with c-Met protein overexpressed, EGFR wild-type, advanced or metastatic nonsquamous non–small cell lung cancer.
Reena J. Salgia, MD, discusses the advantages of utilizing an atezolizumab plus bevacizumab backbone as standard frontline therapy in unresectable HCC; how factors such as Child-Pugh B score, bleeding, and other high-risk features impact treatment selection; and the unmet needs that still need to be addressed for this patient population.
The combination comprised of camrelizumab and famitinib showcased improved efficacy with a manageable safety profile vs camrelizumab monotherapy or investigator’s choice of chemotherapy in patients with recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer.
