n patients with newly diagnosed IDH1-mutated AML who were ineligible for intensive induction therapy, Ivosidenib/Azacitidine combination showed significantly longer EFS compared to Azacitidine at a median follow-up of 12.4 months. The median OS was 24.0 months with Ivosidenib/Azacitidine and 7.9 months with Azacitidine. Febrile neutropenia and infections were less frequent with Ivosidenib/Azacitidine than Azacitidine.

In patients with platinum-sensitive, recurrent ovarian cancer previously treated with at least two platinum-based regimens, Fuzuloparib as a maintenance therapy showed a significantly improved progression-free survival compared with placebo, regardless of germline BRCA 1/2 mutation.

Indolent MCL patients treated with frontline ibrutinib plus rituximab showed an overall response of 84% after 12 cycles of treatment, with 80% of patients experiencing a CR. Undetectable MRD in the peripheral blood was achieved in 87% of patients. The estimated PFS at 36 months was 93%. At 2 years, 69% of patients could discontinue ibrutinib because of undetectable MRD.

In patients with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer previously treated with trastuzumab and a taxane, the risk of disease progression or death was lower with trastuzumab deruxtecan than trastuzumab emtansine [Hazard ratio – 0.28 (p<0.001)]. The corresponding overall survival rate was 94.1% and 85.9% after 12 months, and the overall response was 79.7% and 34.2%. (Ref: Cortés J, et al. N Engl J Med March 24, 2022).
