The biopharma company is evaluating its experimental immunotherapy against HPV-positive cancers alone and in combination with a bifunctional fusion protein.

However, the lack of biomarker-specific treatment data kept researchers from definitively concluding that precision oncology treatments were behind an accelerated rate of NSCLC mortality decline.

The firm's investigational immunotherapy PRGN-2009 will be evaluated in patients as a monotherapy and in combination with an investigational bifunctional fusion protein.

A consortium convened by Friends of Cancer Research has made progress in quantifying sources of TMB assay discordance and created a new test-alignment software tool.

In ASCO studies, one PI3K inhibitor showed efficacy in PIK3CA-mutated breast cancer patients progressing on CDK4/6 inhibitors, while the other yielded less encouraging signals.

Early sub-protocol results presented at AACR meeting hint at better outcomes for Mektovi-treated cases with NRAS codon 61 tumor mutations.

Anetumab ravtansine was well tolerated and there was "a positive trend" suggesting that high mesothelin expression may indicate which cancer patients benefit from BAY 94-9343.

From changes in trial enrollment to increased flexibility, clinical trials in precision oncology and other fields are feeling the brunt of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The authors of the study noted that these genetic findings could guide better clinical decisions for patients and improve outcomes.

The finding suggests that African-American patients may be more likely to respond to treatment with poly ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitors.
