Ribociclib added to endocrine therapy extends survival in postmenopausal patients with metastatic breast cancer
A study led by researchers from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center showed a significant overall survival benefit with ribociclib plus endocrine therapy for postmenopausal patients with hormone receptor-positive (HR+) human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (HER2-) metastatic breast cancer. This is the first demonstration of a survival advantage with a front-line CDK4/6 inhibitor in postmenopausal patients with
HR+/HER 2- advanced breast cancer.
Antibody-drug conjugate shows impressive activity in patients with non-small cell lung cancer with mutation in HER2 gene
More than half of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) bearing a mutation in the HER2 gene had their tumors stop growing or shrink for an extended time after treatment with a drug that hitches a chemotherapy agent to a highly targeted antibody, an international clinical trial led by investigators at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute has found.
