A single, high priming dose of tremelimumab plus durvalumab resulted in a statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in overall survival vs sorafenib when used in the frontline treatment of patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma who had not previously received systemic therapy and were not eligible for localized treatment.
The initiation of the phase 3 ENHANCE trial looks to build on the generally early response to azacitidine with the addition of magrolimab, a first-in-class monoclonal antibody, for patients with intermediate-, high-, and very high–risk myelodysplastic syndrome.
Patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, particularly those who have failed a prior BCMA–targeted therapy, represent a population with an unmet need for effective treatment options. Investigators are hoping to help fill this void with the initiation of the phase 2 MagnetisMM-3 study.
The triplet combination of umbralisib, ublituximab, and pembrolizumab demonstrated durable responses with a tolerable safety profile in patients with relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia and Richter’s transformation.
The frontline combination of nivolumab and chemotherapy upheld its improvement in progression-free and overall survival vs chemotherapy alone with longer follow-up of patients with advanced gastric, gastroesophageal junction, or esophageal cancer, according to data from the phase 3 CheckMate-649 trial.
As part of a global consensus meeting, experts from several disciplines convened to define evidence-based guidelines for the treatment of patients with primary and metastatic epithelioid hemangioendothelioma with locoregional and systemic therapies, as well as palliative care.
The combination of pembrolizumab and lenvatinib led to a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival and overall survival in patients with mismatch repair deficient advanced endometrial cancer following platinum-based chemotherapy.
More tailored selection processes, which have placed a greater emphasis on patient-specific characteristics, such as risk and genomic status, and made possible with a growing number of treatment options, have led to optimized therapeutic decisions for patients with hematologic malignancies.
The autologous CAR T-cell therapy P-PSMA-101 elicited robust antitumor responses in patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, according to preliminary findings from the phase 1 P-PSMA-101-001 trial that were virtually presented during the 6th Annual CAR-TCR Summit.
