Although the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2020 meeting was held virtually because of the COVID-19 pandemic, hundreds of abstracts, posters, and presentations were still made available to inform clinicians on the latest developments in the treatment of lung cancer. This publication features some of the key highlights from the meeting, which can be used to improve the management and care of patients with the disease.
New data suggest that adding obinutuzumab to ibrutinib in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) may be effective at improving minimal residual disease (MRD) response rates, especially in patients with low tumor burden after prior ibrutinib therapy.
Use of a time-limited triplet combination of acalabrutinib, venetoclax, and obinutuzumab in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia offers high rates of undetectable minimal residual disease in bone marrow with acceptable tolerability.
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.
