ASBMR 2022 Rare Bone Disease Highlights: Episode 2

In this second episode of a three-episode podcast series, COR2ED and ASBMR have partnered with Professor Eric Rush (Children’s Mercy Hospital) to provide rare bone disease highlights from ASBMR 2022 Annual Meeting. Prof. Rush opens with detailed information on fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP): symptoms of this severe congenital condition include permanent heterotopic ossifications preceded by painful soft tissue swelling. Nearly all patients have the same ACVR1 receptor variant, and Prof. Rush shares therapy options for the disease. He then offers insights on hypochondroplasia (HCH), a developmental disorder caused by a defect in the FGFR3 gene. An animal model for HCH has been developed, in which infigratinib, a selective FGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor, shows positive effects on growth as well as proportion. He then describes a clinical study in osteogenesis imperfects (OI), in which allogenic transplantation of fetal liver-derived mesenchymal stem cells was tested in children with type III and type IV OI. While increased bone density and height were observed, Prof. Rush cautions that both the number of study participants and the study duration were low. He closes the podcast with personal insights from the in-person Annual Meeting, including opportunities for engagement and exchange at “Meet the Professor” sessions. ...

Current and Future Therapeutic Approaches in Colorectal and Gastric Cancer: Immunotherapy - Ep 2

In this podcast series, Dr. Jenny Seligmann (University of Leeds, UK), Dr. Autumn McRee (University of North Carolina, USA) and Dr. Dominik Modest (Charité University of Medicine, Germany) discuss the different therapeutic options available in colorectal and gastric cancer. This second episode focuses on recent developments in immunotherapy approaches in metastatic colorectal and gastric cancer – specifically whether immunotherapy should be used alone, in combination with other treatments or with chemotherapy. Data from several clinical trials are discussed such as KEYNOTE-177, CheckMate 142, CheckMate 649, KEYNOTE 062, and NICHE. The experts also consider the appropriate treatment regimens for MSI-high and MSS colorectal and gastric cancer patients and whether CPS is an appropriate biomarker for gastric cancer. ...

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. ...
