The addition of gedatolisib to palbociclib and letrozole produced durable responses with comparable safety to that observed with palbociclib and letrozole alone in treatment-naïve patients with estrogen receptor-positive, HER2-negative advanced breast cancer.
R. Kate Kelley, MD, details the ongoing investigation of RLY-4008 for patients with advanced cholangiocarcinoma harboring FGFR2 fusions or rearrangements, other ongoing investigations in cholangiocarcinoma, and the importance of molecular testing to drive treatment decisions in this population.
Sohail Dhanji, MD, discusses the investigation of preoperative hypertension as a risk factor in patients undergoing nephroureterectomy for upper tract urothelial carcinoma, as well as other risk factors for mortality in this patient population.
Patient-reported outcomes with fam-trastuzumab deruxtecan-nxki in HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer reflected the regimen’s favorable risk-benefit profile in the phase 3 DESTINY-Breast02 trial, according to findings presented during the 2023 ESMO Breast Cancer Annual Congress.
Treatment with trastuzumab deruxtecan resulted in lower exposure-adjusted incidence rates per patient-year of treatment-emergent adverse effects compared with treatment of physician’s choice in patients with HER2-low unresectable and/or metastatic breast cancer, according to safety analysis from the phase 3 DESTINY-Breast04 trial.

Terence Friedlander, MD, discusses the significance of the FDA approval of frontline enfortumab vedotin combined with pembrolizumab in patients with urothelial carcinoma.
Laura J. Esserman, MD, MBA, discusses the effect early end points could have for clinical trials in breast cancer, how these end points could help usher in more individually tailored treatment options based on an individual patient’s disease and response, and how early end points have been used in the ongoing phase 2 I-SPY 2 trial.
As more antibody-drug conjugates emerge and investigators foresee fam-trastuzumab deruxtecan-nxki moving forward in lines of treatment for metastatic disease, the treatment landscape of hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative breast cancer continues to expand and shift.
