The addition of serplulimab to chemotherapy in the first-line setting improved overall survival (OS) in patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer (SCLC), according to results of the ASTRUM-005 trial.
A study by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has found age-specific differences in drug responses and new gene-drug interactions in paediatric acute myeloid leukaemia (AML).
An extended 4.5-year follow-up of the phase III KEYNOTE-240 trial showed that pembrolizumab continued to provide clinically meaningful improvements in the dual primary endpoints of overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS), with a manageable safety profile, vs placebo in patients with sorafenib-treated advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
The combination of nivolumab, ipilimumab, and cabozantinib improved progression-free survival (PFS) in patients with previously untreated, advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) of intermediate or poor risk as per IMDC* criteria, results of the phase III COSMIC-313 trial showed.
Adding nivolumab to paclitaxel-carboplatin chemotherapy in the neoadjuvant setting boosted progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) in patients with resectable stage IIIA–B non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), according to results of the phase II NADIM II trial from Spain.
Combining pembrolizumab with chemoradiation therapy (CRT) showed a trend toward improved event-free survival (EFS) compared with CRT alone in patients with locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), primary results of the phase III KEYNOTE-412 trial showed.
