During the 2021 European Society for Medical Oncology virtual meeting, 5-year follow-up data from a clinial trial showed comparable results related to cardiac safety and long-term efficacy between trastuzumab (Herceptin) and the biosimilar trastuzumab-dttb (SB3; Ontruzant) in patients with HER2-positive, early or locally advanced breast cancer.
Results from a phase 3 clinical trial showed equivalence between the bevacizumab biosimilar, BCD-021, and the reference product, bevacizumab (Avastin), in terms of overall response rate (ORR) in patients with stage IIIB or IV nonsquamous non–small-cell lung cancer.
“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—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.
