The oral VEGFR2 TKI rivoceranib demonstrated an objective response rate by investigator assessed RECIST 1.1 criteria of 15.1% and a disease control rate of 64.4% for patients with recurrent or metastatic adenoid cystic carcinoma.
Sacituzumab govitecan elicited a statistically significant and clinically meaningful benefit among patients with hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative breast cancer with endocrine therapy resistance, reducing the risk of disease progression by 34% vs standard chemotherapy, according to results of the phase 3 TROPiCS-02 trial.
Lung cancer management methods are rapidly evolving to encompass immunotherapy in the frontline setting and approved second-line options with tyrosine kinase inhibitors and monoclonal antibodies in non–small cell lung cancer, as well as treatment advances in first- and second-line small cell lung cancer.
The FDA has approved ciltacabtagene autoleucel for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, following 4 or more prior lines of therapy, including a proteasome inhibitor, an immunomodulatory agent, and an anti-CD38 monoclonal antibody.
Immunotherapy treatment for early-stage triple-negative breast cancer is enjoying a boom period, though there are still unanswered questions, particularly around the optimal chemotherapy backbone and patient selection.
Thomas G. Martin, MD, discusses some of the exciting clinical trials open at UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center in multiple myeloma, especially for those in the relapsed/refractory setting.
Thomas G. Martin, MD, discusses the 2-year follow-up data of the phase 1/2 CARTITUDE-1 study in relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, that were presented during the 2021 ASH Annual Meeting & Exposition.
The combination of cabozantinib and atezolizumab led to a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival and a numerical improvement in overall survival vs sorafenib as frontline treatment in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma, according to findings from the first planned analysis of the phase 3 COSMIC-312 trial.
The Cancer Cell Map Initiative, developed by investigators at the University of California San Francisco and the University of California San Diego, has successfully charted how hundreds of genetic mutations involved in breast cancer and cancers of the head and neck affect the activity of proteins that ultimately lead to disease.
