Prof Marc Peeters and Prof Jesus Garcia-Foncillas

ESMO 2019 was, as always, a prime opportunity to learn the latest data surrounding all areas of oncology. A number of abstracts and posters were also featured on NTRK fusion cancer. Together, our Chair Professor Marc Peeters and our guest speaker Professor Jesus Garcia-Foncillas selected 4 abstracts to discuss in this summary session. These are:

  • • 45PD - Durability of response with larotrectinib in adult and paediatric patients with TRK fusion cancer

  • • 485P - Growth modulation index (GMI) as a comparative measure of clinical activity of larotrectinib versus prior systemic treatments in adult and paediatric tumours

  • • 443PD - Genomic characteristics and predicted ancestry of NTRK1/2/3 and ROS1 fusion-positive tumours from >165,000 pan-solid tumours

  • • 1488PD - Entrectinib in Locally Advanced/Metastatic ROS1 and NTRK Fusion-Positive Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC): Updated Integrated Analysis
