Using a “double whammy” of 2 HER2-directed therapies achieved a clinical benefit rate of 70% and an objective response rate (ORR) of 30% in patients with heavily pretreated, HER2-positive metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC), according to final results from the phase 2 HERACLES-A trial.
CAR T-cell therapy achieved excellent responses in an updated report on a series of 50 patients with relapsed B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) treated with CAR T-cells at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York City.
The novel combination of the investigational IDO pathway inhibitor indoximod plus pembrolizumab led to higher response rates in patients with advanced melanoma than what is seen with pembrolizumab alone, according to interim analysis of a phase 2 clinical trial reported at the 2017 Annual Meeting of AACR.
Preliminary data show excellent and durable responses to atezolizumab in 10% of women with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), one of the most aggressive and difficult cancers to treat.
