David Goldstein, et al.:
Nomogram for predicting overall survival (OS) in patients (pts) treated with nab-paclitaxel (nab-P) plus gemcitabine (Gem) or Gem alone for metastatic pancreatic cancer (MPC)
The autors of this study conclude that treatment arm, Karnofsky performance status (KPS), neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), albumin level, sum of longest tumor diameters (SLD), and presence of liver metastasis were the key predictors of OS. This nomogram, which will be presented in visual format in the final presentation, may help physicians and pts make informed treatment decisions. Abstract
Sunil R. Hingorani,et al.:
Randomized phase II study of PEGPH20 plus nab-paclitaxel/gemcitabine (PAG) vs AG in patients (Pts) with untreated, metastatic pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (mPDA)
The autors of this study conclude that Randomized Phase II study met both primary endpoints (PFS and TE event rate), with the largest improvement in the secondary endpoint of PFS in HA-High pts. These data support HA as a potential predictive biomarker for patient selection of PEGPH20, currently investigated in the ongoing global Phase III HALO 301 study with PFS and OS as co-primary endpoints.
