Neoadjuvant chemoradiation followed by pancreaticoduodenectomy resulted in 0.14 more quality-of-life years than upfront surgery followed by adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with resectable pancreatic cancer.
The median overall survival with frontline liposomal irinotecan/NALIRIFOX was 11.1 months vs 9.2 months with nab-paclitaxel plus gemcitabine in patients with metastatic pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.
For patients with CLDN18.2-positive, HER2-negative locally advanced unresectable or metastatic gastric/gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma, treatment with zolbetuximab/mFOLFOX6 yielded a progression-free survival (PFS) of 10.61 months whereas placebo/mFOLFOX6 resulted in a PFS of 8.67 months.
In an all-randomized population of patients with advanced gastric cancer, gastroesophageal junction, or esophageal adenocarcinoma, adding nivolumab to chemotherapy yielded a 21% reduction in the risk of death.
The FDA has granted accelerated approval to tucatinib and trastuzumab for RAS wild-type, HER2-positive metastatic colorectal cancer. The prescribing information includes warnings for diarrhea and hepatotoxicity.
