Scott T. Tagawa, MD, Weill Cornell Medicine, discusses next steps for taxanes following the TAXYNERGY trial in prostate cancer.

Although these results do not suggest changing from one particular taxane to the other, TAXYNERGY validated androgen receptor (AR) translocation as a mechanism of action of taxane chemotherapy, says Tagawa.

The next step is to use biomarkers to look at drug-target engagement in clinical trials, says Tagawa, which would hopefully determine the most effective AR plus a taxane combination for patients.
