High-Risk Cytogenetics in MM: Choosing the Best Treatment Regimen Ep 3

COR2ED Medical Education: In this podcast episode, myeloma experts Dr. María Victoria Mateos (Haematologist at the University Hospital Salamanca, Spain) and Dr. Alexander Lesokhin (Associate Attending on the Myeloma Service at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, USA) discuss how they choose the best treatment regimen for patients with multiple myeloma and a high-risk cytogenetic profile.  Firstly, they discuss the treatment options available for patients with high-risk cytogenetics in the US and in Europe. However, the key question is how to decide, for each individual, which treatment option is the best one. Dr. Mateos and Dr. Lesokhin discuss the factors they consider in these decisions in their clinical practice. Although the prior treatment is the most important consideration in the relapsed setting, the type of cytogenetic abnormality also plays a role. The experts specifically discuss treatment decisions in patients with extramedullary multiple myeloma: a difficult-to-treat population. The speakers also discuss the future of myeloma treatment. How should trial design be adapted to better meet the needs of patients with a high-risk cytogenetic profile? What will be the role of CAR-T and bispecific antibodies in this population? The experts conclude by summarising their key take-aways from the discussion. ...

The use of VEGFR-TKIs monotherapy in the treatment of unresectable or advanced HCC in 1L setting

The use of VEGFR-TKIs monotherapy in the treatment of unresectable or advanced HCC in 1L setting: Who can benefit and guidance on implementation of dosing-strategies and pre-habilitation of patients for the prediction of efficacy and toxicities in clinical practice Prof. Josep Llovet and Prof. Stephen L. Chan discuss a very interesting topic about the use of the VEGFR TKIs monotherapy in the treatment of unresectable or advanced HCC in the first-line setting. They will go into details about who can benefit from monotherapy and will share the current guidance on the implementation of the dosing strategies for the management of toxicity in the clinical practice. They discuss first line monotherapy with TKI (lenvatinib or sorafenib) for patients who are not suitable for the treatment with atezo-bev combination (around 20% of the patients) which is the current standard of care. They summarize the HCC patients who are not ideal for this I/O combination such as HCC patients with liver transplantation, high bleeding risk, impaired liver function or severe autoimmune disease. The experts discuss about which patients can benefit from TKI and provide a summary of efficacy data and safety profile from various pivotal clinical studies (including SHARP, REFLECT, IMbrave150) as well as real-world data. Dosing-strategies for VEGFR-TKIs and management of AEs are discussed as well as guideline recommendations. Finally, the experts discuss key developments over the next few years focusing on the new immunotherapy combinations approach that could become new standard of care. ...

PARP inhibitors in prostate cancer: What nurses need to know

COR2ED Medical Education: Pablo Peinado, Research Nurse Coordinator, and Dr. Elena Castro, medical oncologist, who both work at Hospital Universitario Virgen de la Victoria in Malaga in Spain, discuss ‘The potential of PARP inhibitors in prostate cancer: What nurses need to know’.  In this podcast, the experts discuss PARP inhibitors (PARPi’s), how they work and key data from the registration trials for rucaparib and olaparib, TRITON2 and PROfound.  They also discuss how to select PARPi’s for their prostate cancer patients and where they fit in the overall treatment sequence. Pablo provides some insight into communicating with patients, and the types of questions and concerns they often have in relation to genetic testing and treatment with PARPi’s.  In addition, they also discuss the PARPi’s currently in late-stage development such as niraparib and talazoparib as well as the potential future use of PARPi’s in combination with immunotherapies or androgen receptor pathway inhibitors. ...
