We were delighted to talk to Milind Javle (University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX, US) about the use of infigratinib for the treatment of patients with previously treated advanced cholangiocarcinoma (Clinical Trial Identifier: NCT02150967).
The abstract ‘Final results from a phase II study of infigratinib (BGJ398), an FGFR-selective tyrosine kinase inhibitor, in patients with previously treated advanced cholangiocarcinoma harboring an FGFR2 gene fusion or rearrangement’ (ABSTRACT NUMBER: 265) was presented at the virtual ASCO Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium 2021, 15-17 January, 2021.
