Breast Cancer

Addition of the CDK4/6 inhibitor abemaciclib to fulvestrant reduced the risk of disease progression by 45%, with an acceptable tolerability profile.

Released: June 7, 2017

Significantly improved PFS and ORR observed with addition of lapatinib to trastuzumab plus investigator-selected aromatase inhibitor.

Released: June 6, 2017

Pembrolizumab monotherapy was well tolerated and active in a subset of pretreated metastatic TNBC patients, with promising preliminary survival results observed in patients with CR, PR, or SD.

Released: June 4, 2017

The addition of ipatasertib to paclitaxel improved PFS for patients with metastatic TNBC, with the greatest benefit observed in a prespecified subgroup analysis of patients with PIK3CA/AKT1/PTEN-altered tumors.

Released: June 4, 2017

Extended intermittent letrozole did not improve DFS or other efficacy outcomes compared with continuous dosing.

Released: June 8, 2017

TC noninferior to EC→T in patients with high-risk HER2-negative early BC with comparable 5-year DFS (90%), OS (95%), and reduced toxicity.

Released: June 12, 2017

The addition of pembrolizumab to neoadjuvant T → AC “graduated” I-SPY 2 for efficacy, approximately tripling the estimated pCR in TNBC and in HR+/HER2- EBC.

Released: June 9, 2017

Comparable pCR, less febrile neutropenia and LVEF decline with anthracycline-free vs anthracycline-containing neoadjuvant CT when paired with dual HER2 blockade.

Released: June 9, 2017

Addition of veliparib and carboplatin to neoadjuvant T → AC did not increase pCR rate over carboplatin plus T → AC alone.

Released: June 7, 2017

Study data showed significantly prolonged PFS and a lower rate of high-grade adverse events with olaparib monotherapy vs CT.

Released: June 8, 2017

Pertuzumab addition significantly reduced risk of recurrence vs current standard.
