August 2021: Pembrolizumab (Keytruda, Merck) in combination with lenvatinib (Lenvima, Eisai) has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for patients with advanced endometrial carcinoma that is not microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H) or mismatch repair deficient (dMMR), who have disease progression after prior systemic therapy in any setting and are not candidates for curative surgery or radiation.

On September 17, 2019, the FDA awarded pembrolizumab plus lenvatinib expedited approval for advanced endometrial cancer. The multicenter, open-label, randomised, active-controlled study 309/KEYNOTE-775 (NCT03517449) was necessary to confirm the clinical benefit of this accelerated authorisation.

827 patients with advanced endometrial cancer were enrolled in Study 309/KEYNOTE-775, who had previously had at least one platinum-based chemotherapy regimen in any setting, including neoadjuvant and adjuvant treatments. Patients were randomly assigned (1:1) to receive pembrolizumab 200 mg intravenously every 3 weeks with lenvatinib 20 mg orally once daily, or doxorubicin or paclitaxel, as determined by the investigator.

Progression-free survival (PFS), as determined by blinded independent central review (BICR), and overall survival (OS) were the primary efficacy outcome measures. The objective response rate (ORR) and duration of response (DOR), both assessed by the BICR, were additional efficacy outcome measures.

The median PFS for patients with advanced endometrial cancer that was not MSI-H or dMMR was 6.6 months (95 percent CI: 5.6, 7.4) for those receiving pembrolizumab and lenvatinib and 3.8 months (95 percent CI: 3.6, 5.0) for those receiving investigator’s choice chemotherapy (HR 0.60; 95 percent CI: 0.50, 0.72; p0.0001) for those receiving investigator’s choice chemotherapy. The median OS was 17.4 months (95 percent confidence interval: 14.2, 19.9) for men and 12.0 months (95 percent confidence interval: 10.8, 13.3) for women (HR 0.68; 95 percent confidence interval: 0.56, 0.84; p=0.0001). ORRs were 30% (95 percent confidence interval: 26, 36) and 15% (95 percent confidence interval: 12, 19), respectively (p0.0001). 9.2 months (1.6+, 23.7+) and 5.7 months (0.0+, 24.2+) were the median DORs.

Pembrolizumab 200 mg every 3 weeks or 400 mg every 6 weeks with lenvatinib 20 mg orally once daily is the recommended dose for endometrial cancer.

What is the treatment after BCMA CAR T failed in R/R multiple myeloma cases?

For people with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma, BCMA CAR T-cell therapy might not work. Other treatments, such as bispecific antibodies, other CAR T-cell therapies that target different antigens, and combination regimens with immunomodulatory drugs, proteasome inhibitors, and monoclonal antibodies, can still be used. OriCAR-017 is another immunotherapy that is under trial and is expected to be launched soon. Clinical trials offer experimental treatments, providing access to novel therapies. Tailored approaches based on patient-specific factors and emerging research are crucial for improving outcomes in this challenging scenario.
