             Basel, 13 December 2019 - Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY) today announced the Phase III IMspire150 study, in people with previously untreated BRAF V600 mutation-positive advanced melanoma, met its primary endpoint of progression-free survival (PFS). The study showed adding Tecentriq ® (atezolizumab) to Cotellic® (cobimetinib) and Zelboraf® (vemurafenib) helped to reduce the risk of disease worsening or death, compared to placebo plus Cotellic and Zelboraf. A significant and clinically meaningful improvement in PFS was demonstrated in the study. The safety ...

We describe a patient who presented with progressive memory loss 2  weeks after her third cycle of Ipilimumab and Nivolumab with associated elevated Anti-GAD65 levels. Treatment with IVIG and PLEX led to complete resolution of her symptoms and improvement in her brain imaging and CSF findings.

FoundationOne CDx has earned yet another approval from FDA, making the companion diagnostic now available for 19 FDA-approved targeted therapies. It can now be used as a companion diagnostic for Piqray (alpelisib) in combination with fulvestrant for the treatment of postmenopausal women, and men, with hormone receptor (HR)-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative, PIK3CA mutated, advanced or metastatic breast cancer following progression on or after an endocrine-based regimen. FDA approved Piqray in May 2019, and it is the first and only treatment specifically for patients with a PIK3CA mutation i...

Authors: Chornoguz O, Leettola CN, Leander K, Brosnan K, Emmell E, Chiu ML, Santulli-Marotto S Abstract Although CD3 T cell redirecting antibodies have been successfully utilized for the treatment of hematological malignancies (blinatumomab), the T cell signaling pathways induced by these molecules are incompletely understood. To gain insight into the mechanism of action for T cell redirection antibodies, we created a novel murine CD3xEpCAM bispecific antibody that incorporates a silent Fc to dissect function and signaling of murine CD8 OT1 T cells upon stimulation. T cell-mediated cytotoxicity, cytokine secretion,...

This study estimated healthcare costs and utilisation for patients with AR and asthma. Mean annual outpatient visits, pharmaceutical costs and inpatient hospitalisations were calculated for 2010 and 2014, with pharmaceutical and inpatient costs stratified by AIT use. AR and asthma patients had a 35% higher mean number of physician visits and up to 90% higher mean pharmaceutical costs compared to controls. The cost of pharmaceuticals and inpatient hospitalisations were 54% lower in those prescribed AIT. Further research is recommended to understand the reasons for these cost differences.

The objective of the present review was to assess the most recent data, specifically addressing methods of risk stratification, duration of therapy, and future directions. Methods: PubMed and medline were searched for literature pertinent to adjuvant chemotherapy in either stage ii or stage iii colorectal cancer. Summary: Locoregional disease, histopathology, age, laterality, and a number of other biologic and molecular markers appear to have a role in disease risk stratification. The duration of adjuvant therapy for stage iii disease can vary based on risk factors, but use of adjuvant therapy and duration of thera...

Authors: Parmar A, Chan KKW, Ko YJ Abstract Therapeutic options for chemorefractory metastatic colorectal cancer (mcrc) have significantly expanded since 2009. The oral targeted therapies regorafenib and trifluridine/tipiracil have been established to be efficacious and safe in patients with mcrc who have progressed beyond 2 or more lines of chemotherapy. Evidence for the use of immunotherapy in a subgroup of this patient population is also encouraging, particularly in patients with mcrc that exhibits high microsatellite instability or deficient mismatch repair. Those significant advances have led to Health Canada ...

Publication date: Available online 10 December 2019Source: Trends in Pharmacological SciencesAuthor(s): Yang Liu, Pan ZhengA major paradigm in cancer immunotherapy is the use of checkpoint inhibitors to break regulatory mechanisms that usually guard the host against autoimmune diseases. CTLA-4-targeting immunotherapy was the first example that helped establish this paradigm. However, the clinically tested anti-CTLA-4 antibodies exhibit suboptimal efficacy but high toxicity. Recent studies have demonstrated that immunotherapy-related adverse events (irAE) and the cancer immunotherapeutic effect (CITE) represent distinct and...
