The safety and tolerability of TST001 is under investigation as a potential treatment option for patients with gastric/gastroesophageal junction cancer and other locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors as part of a phase 1 trial.
The addition of nivolumab to mFOLFOX6 and bevacizumab failed to demonstrate a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival vs mFOLFOX6 and bevacizumab alone in previously untreated patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, according to findings from the phase 2/3 CheckMate 9X8 trial.
Trastuzumab deruxtecan demonstrated durable responses and a safety profile that was consistent with findings from the primary analysis of the phase 2 DESTINY-CRC01 trial in pretreated patients with HER2-expressing metastatic colorectal cancer, according to updated results of the study.
The addition of nivolumab to encorafenib and cetuximab elicited a high response rate and an acceptable safety profile in patients with refractory microsatellite stable, BRAF V600E–mutant metastatic colorectal cancer, according to findings from a phase 1/2 trial.
Pembrolizumab plus regorafenib failed to demonstrate a significant improvement in progression-free survival in pretreated patients with microsatellite stable colorectal cancer (MSSCRC), missing the primary end point of the phase 1/2 trial.
The use of pembrolizumab plus binimetinib and bevacizumab in patients with microsatellite-stable, treatment-refractory metastatic colorectal cancer induced a median progression-free survival of 5.8 months, according to preliminary findings from a phase 2 trial.
Onvansertib in combination with irinotecan, fluorouracil, and folinic acid, plus bevacizumab, demonstrated encouraging efficacy and was well-tolerated in patients with KRAS-mutated metastatic colorectal cancer.
Transarterial chemoembolization plus lenvatinib led to a significant improvement in overall survival vs lenvatinib alone as frontline therapy in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma, according to findings from the phase 3 LAUNCH trial.
The combination of olaparib and pembrolizumab demonstrated acceptable safety and an manageable adverse effect profile in patients with advanced cholangiocarcinoma who had received prior gemcitabine-based therapy, according to findings from a phase 2 trial.
Updated findings from the KEYNOTE-590 study confirmed the clinical benefit of the combination of pembrolizumab and chemotherapy as a treatment for patients with locally advanced and metastatic esophageal cancer.
