Expert oncologists consider when it would be appropriate to use neoadjuvant therapy for early-/intermediate-stage hepatocellular carcinoma.
Patients with previously treated metastatic HER2-positive colorectal cancer experienced clinically meaningful and durable responses to treatment with tucatinib plus trastuzumab, according to data from the phase 2 MOUNTAINEER trial.
A single priming dose of tremelimumab added to regular interval durvalumab generated significantly improved overall survival compared with sorafenib in the frontline setting for patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma, irrespective of of their baseline albumin-bilirubin grade, according to updated data from the phase 3 HIMALAYA trial.
The combination of tislelizumab and chemotherapy demonstrated a superior overall survival benefit compared with chemotherapy alone in patients with metastatic or unresectable esophageal squamous cell carcinoma
The addition of durvalumab to gemcitabine and cisplatin demonstrated an improvement in overall survival vs gemcitabine and cisplatin plus placebo as frontline therapy in patients with advanced biliary tract cancer, regardless of primary tumor location.
The combination of botensilimab and balstilimab elicited deep objective responses with evidence of durability and encouraging tolerability in heavily pretreated patients with microsatellite stable, metastatic colorectal cancer.

Centering discussion on a patient with early/intermediate-stage HCC, expert panelists consider the roles of transplant, resection, and adjuvant therapy, respectively.
The addition of the HER2-Vaxx vaccine to standard-of-care chemotherapy led to a significant improvement in overall survival vs SOC chemotherapy alone in patients with HER2-neu overexpressing advanced and metastatic gastric and gastroesophageal junction cancer.
HPN328, a novel half-life extended DLL3-targeting T-cell engager, demonstrated clinical activity and tolerability in patients with pretreated small cell lung cancer and other neuroendocrine tumors, according to findings from a phase 1/2 study (NCT04471727).
