The OncLive Gynecologic Oncology condition center page is a comprehensive resource for clinical news and expert insights on various types of gynecologic cancers, including ovarian cancer, endometrial cancer, and uterine cancer, among others. This section features news articles, interviews with gynecologic oncologists in written and video format, and podcasts that focus on unmet needs, treatment advances, and ongoing research in gynecologic cancers.
Selinexor reduced the risk of disease progression or death by 30% in an audited intent-to-treat population of patients with advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer who received frontline chemotherapy, and by 62% in a subset of patients with p53 wild-type disease, according to data from the phase 3 SIENDO trial.
The addition of anlotinib to sintilimab appeared to be efficacious and safe when used as a second- or later-line treatment in patients with PD-L1–positive, recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer.
The addition of carboplatin to paclitaxel prolonged overall survival and progression-free survival, and proved to be noninferior to the standard combination of paclitaxel and ifosfamide in patients with uterine carcinosarcoma.
Frontline maintenance treatment with selinexor resulted in a statistically significant improvement in median progression-free survival vs placebo in patients with advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer, meeting the primary end point of the phase 3 SIENDO trial.
In patients with ovarian cancer and pretreatment elevated CA-125 who achieved remission after frontline therapy, most recurrences are detected by rising CA-125 levels or symptoms.
Sarah Lee, MD, MBA, discusses the use of checkpoint inhibitors in endometrial cancer, research regarding the association between MSI-H, dMMR, and TMB-H disease, and the importance of broad molecular testing to ensure all eligible patients are appropriately matched to immunotherapeutic options.
