Since accelerated approvals first began to be granted in 1992, their pace for cancer indications has increased dramatically but a revolution in science has made it tough for the U.S. FDA to find its balance.
When combined with chemotherapy, the PD-1 inhibitor antibody toripalimab reduced the risk of death by 37% over chemotherapy alone when used first line in patients with recurrent or metastatic nasopharyngeal carcinoma, Coherus Biosciences Inc. revealed at this year’s American Society of Clinical Oncology meeting (ASCO).
New and updated preclinical and clinical data presented by biopharma firms at the American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting, including: Affimed, Allogene, Amgen, Apexigen, Astrazeneca, Atreca, Bayer, Blueprint, BMS, Cantargia, Catalym, Chimeric, Cogent, Compugen, CSPC, Cyteir, Day One, Daiichi, Elevation, Elicio, Evaxion, G1, Merck & Co.
Impressive data continue to roll out for Day One Biopharmaceuticals Inc.’s tovorafenib in pediatric low-grade glioma, with results from 69 evaluable patients with relapsed or progressive disease showing a 67% overall response rate, as measured by Response Assessment for Neuro-Oncology High-Grade Glioma, in the phase II Firefly-1 trial.
Positive data from two studies treating early breast cancer with CDK4/6 inhibitors presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) meeting in Chicago showed progress is helping patients live longer. The two treatments and companies, Novartis AG and Eli Lilly and Co., are nearly head-to-head competitors in the niche indication.
HER2-targeting bispecific antibody zanidatamab, in development by Jazz Pharmaceuticals plc and Zymeworks Inc., produced better antitumor responses than current standard of care when used as a second-line treatment for biliary tract cancer (BTC) in a pivotal phase IIb study, bringing it closer to becoming the first therapy to target HER2-expressing BTC.
Despite the title of the Sunday, June 4 lead-off presentation at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) meeting in Chicago, there was little room left for doubt about the increasingly important place of artificial intelligence (AI) in drug development.
An unexpected burst of early summer heat and three nights of Taylor Swift performances at nearby Soldier Field didn’t deter tens of thousands of cancer vaccine and therapy developers from swarming Chicago’s McCormick Place for the first full day of presentations at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) meeting, one of the year’s biggest cancer conferences.
The discovery of DNA was a milestone in the history of science that led to a breakthrough in biomedical research. By associating disease and genetics, genome correction techniques were ultimately developed that are supposed to work in the same way that antibiotics and antivirals block pathogenic microorganisms: by directly attacking the causes of disease.
