Early cytogenetic and molecular responses achieved with ponatinib was significantly linked with better long-term progression-free survival and overall survival in patients with highly resistant, pretreated chronic-phase chronic myeloid leukemia.
Treatment with the KRAS G12C inhibitor divarasib (formerly GDC-6036) led to durable responses with a tolerable safety profile in patients with a variety of solid tumors harboring a KRAS G12C mutation.
Corey J. Langer, MD, outlines the prevalence of BRAF mutations in NSCLC and looked ahead to where the development pipeline of agents for the treatment of patients with BRAF-mutated NSCLC is headed.
The Center for Drug Evaluation, of the National Medical Products Administration in China, has granted breakthrough therapy designation to repotrectinib for use in patients with advanced solid tumors harboring a NTRK gene fusion who experienced disease progression after TKI treatment.
The Center for Drug Evaluation, of the National Medical Products Administration in China, has granted a breakthrough therapy designation to savolitinib for use in patients with locally advanced or metastatic gastric cancer or gastroesophageal junction with MET amplification in whom at least 2 lines of standard therapy have failed.

Zeynep Eroglu, MD, explains the rationale for adding navitoclax to dabrafenib plus trametinib in the treatment of patients with BRAF V600–mutant metastatic melanoma, highlights the methodologies and results of the CTEP-P9466 trial, and describes the implications of this research for this patient population.
The FDA has granted priority review to the supplemental new drug application seeking the approval of ivosidenib for the treatment of patients with IDH1-mutated, relapsed/refractory myelodysplastic syndrome.
The FDA has approved FoundationOne CDx to be utilized as a companion diagnostic for the dual-action tablet of niraparib plus abiraterone acetate, which was approved for use in combination with prednisone in adult patients with deleterious or suspected deleterious BRCA-mutated metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer.
The first patients have been dosed in the phase 2 portion of a phase 1/2 trial evaluating BDC-1001 monotherapy in patients with HER2-positive colorectal cancer, endometrial cancer, and gastroesophageal cancer.

Adnan F. Danish, MD, discusses the potential for SCINTIX radiation technology to open new treatment opportunities for patients with cancer, including those with lung and bone cancers, whose disease has metastasized to more than 5 sites.
The FDA has approved the therascreen PDGFRA RGQ PCR kit for use as a companion diagnostic, co-developed by Qiagen and Blueprint Medicines, to assist in the identification of patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors who may be candidates to receive avapritinib.
Adnan F. Danish, MD, discusses the methodologies behind the use of SCINTIX radiation technology in metastatic bone and lung tumors, detailing how this technology differs from computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging scans prior to treatment.
