“This is truly a practice-changing study, not just for our patients but for the design of other studies. We can successfully identify candidates for olaparib. We saw a clinically meaningful improvement in outcomes for patients with HRR genetic alterations, driven mainly by BRCA2,” said Eleni Efstathiou, MD, PhD.

Barcelona, Spain—Results of the new clinical trial RADICALS-RT indicate that using salvage radiotherapy immediately after surgery leads to equivalent outcomes in terms of progression-free survival (PFS) versus adjuvant radiotherapy in men with prostate cancer undergoing radical prostatectomy. These late-breaking results were presented at the ESMO Congress 2019 by lead investigator Chris Parker, MD, FRCR, MRCP, Consultant Clinical Oncologist, Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust and the Institute of Cancer Research, London, England.

Barcelona, Spain—Late-breaking data from 2 clinical trials presented at ESMO 2019 will likely change the treatment paradigm for pre- or postmenopausal women with hormone receptor (HR)-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer, regardless of menopausal status. The MONALEESA-3 study and the MONARCH-2 study showed an improved overall survival (OS) with the addition of the CDK4/6 inhibitor ribociclib (Kisqali) or abemaciclib (Verzenio) to endocrine therapy as first- or second-line therapy. The results were presented at the Presidential Session of the meeting.
A groundbreaking report presented today at ESMO conveyed data from an interim analysis of a phase 2b trial demonstrating that the combination of NPS + trastuzumab is safe and may provide clinically meaningful benefit to women with HER2 low-expressing breast cancer, with a particularly marked benefit in the subgroup with triple-negative breast cancer.

Fatigue and neuropathy were found to be common in patients treated with olaparib, and should be identified and managed early.
Although the combination of 2 antivascular agents showed preliminary efficacy, increased cardiac toxicity has resulted in premature discontinuation of the trial.
In a prospective trial, the VEGFR-2 small-molecule inhibitor apatinib has shown promising efficacy and safety signals.
Based on the tolerable safety profile established in phase 1b of the ORION-01 trial, the recommended dose for expansion/recommended phase 2 dose of the oregovomab/nivolumab combination immunotherapy has been established.
Results from the phase 3 SOLO1 trial demonstrate a substantial, unprecedented improvement in progression-free survival for olaparib versus placebo.
