Data from previous studies evaluating the efficacy of atezolizumab, a PD-L1 inhibitor, have suggested that high tissue tumor mutational burden may be predictive of efficacy for checkpoint immunotherapy.
Adding Oxaliplatin to Capecitabine-Based Chemotherapy, Radiation May Not Improve Survival in Rectal Cancer
Researchers randomly assigned 1090 patients with advanced rectal adenocarcinoma to 5 weeks of preoperative capecitabine-based chemoradiation followed by 6 cycles of capecitabine alone or with oxaliplatin.
Findings previously demonstrated that nivolumab plus ipilimumab prolongs overall survival and was better tolerated among patients with renal cell carcinoma, but its impact on health-related quality of life was not reported.
Previous studies demonstrated that FOLFIRINOX is more effective than gemcitabine as first-line treatment for patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer with good performance status.
Evidence suggests that neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy may afford benefit, but this hypothesis requires further validation.
Recent studies have explored the potential of combination therapy with EGFR-TKIs and VEGF-inhibitors for patients with EGFR-positive non-small cell lung cancer.
EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor monotherapy has improved progression-free survival (PFS) but not overall survival (OS) compared with chemotherapy in non-small cell lung cancer.
When compared with watchful waiting, CLND did not improve survival outcomes among patients with malignant melanoma who have positive SLNB.
Preliminary findings from CheckMate 238 show treatment with nivolumab significantly prolonged recurrence-free survival compared with ipilimumab in patients with resected stage III/IV melanoma after a minimum 18-month follow-up.
In a phase 3 trial, Prostvac-V/F did not significantly prolong overall survival among men with asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic mCRPC.
