2017 ASCO Annual Meeting Presscast June 3 Part 1
This presscast below has been produced by ASCO. According to the ASCO press release the following studies have been presented in the Saturday June 3 “News of the Day” Part 1 Briefing:
- Safety of pregnancy in patients (pts) with history of estrogen receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer (BC): Long-term follow-up analysis from a multicenter study (Abstract LBA10066) (presscast presentation starts at min 1:11 ) The autors conclude that this is the largest study addressing the safety of pregnancy in pts with history of ER+ BC. Long-term follow-up confirms that pregnancy is safe and should not be discouraged irrespective of ER status. Our results further strengthen the rationale of the ongoing IBCSG-BIG-NABCG POSITIVE trial (NCT02308085) addressing the role of temporary interruption of adjuvant endocrine therapy to allow pregnancy.

- LATITUDE: A phase III, double-blind, randomized trial of androgen deprivation therapy with abiraterone acetate plus prednison or placebos in newly diagnosed high-risk metastatic hormone-naive prostate cancer (Abstract LBA3) (presscast presentation starts at min 9:21)
The autors conclude that early use of AA+P added to ADT in pts with high-risk mHNPC yielded significantly improved OS, rPFS, and all secondary end points vs ADT+PBOs alone. ADT+AA+P had a favorable risk/benefit ratio and supports early intervention with AA+P in newly diagnosed, high-risk mHNPC. . Read the full release.
- Adding abiraterone for men with high-risk prostate cancer (PCa) starting long-term androgen deprivation therapy (ADT): Survival results from STAMPEDE (NCT00268476) (Abstract LBA5003) (presscast presentation starts at min 17:43)
The autors conclude that The results show a clinically & statistically significant effect on overall survival & failure-free survival from adding abiraterone at start of ADT with a manageable increase in toxicity. ADT (+/- RT) + abiraterone is a new standard of care for this group. Read the full release.
