1. What is favezelimab (MK4280) and its mechanism of action? (00:14-00:39)
2. What was the rationale for using favezelimab in combination with pembrolizumab in patients with microsatellite stable metastatic colorectal cancer that had progressed on two or more prior therapies? (00:39-01:33)
3. Could you give us an overview of the phase I study and its findings? (01:33-03:08)
4. Which patients had the best response to this combination? (03:08-03:30)
5. What will be the next steps in the clinical development of favezelimab in this treatment setting? (03:30-04:08)
6. What do you think is the most important aspect to consider with regards to immunotherapy in this patient subset? (04:08-04:42)

Benjamin Weinberg, ASCO 2022: Highlights of ASCO in colorectal cancer, dostarlimab and the DYNAMIC study
Professor Benjamin Weinberg (Georgetown University, Washington, DC, USA) discusses the highlights of colorectal cancer at ASCO 2022. A subset of colorectal cancer is mismatch repair deficient and is responsive to PD-1 blockade in the metastatic setting. This led to the phase II study where dostarlimab, an anti PD-1 monoclonal antibody, was administered to patients with […]
