We met with Andrea Necchi (Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori) at ESMO 2019 to discuss the 3-year follow-up results from the phase III KEYNOTE-045 trial: Pembrolizumab Versus Investigator’s Choice (Paclitaxel, Docetaxel, or Vinflunine) in Recurrent, Advanced Urothelial Cancer (NCT02256436).
1. What are the limitations of the current standard of care for the second-line treatment of patients with recurrent urothelial cancer? (0:05)
2. Could you tell us a little about the aims and design of the KEYNOTE-045 study? (3:44)
3. What is the role of programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression in predicting response? (6:02)
4. What future studies of pembrolizumab in urothelial cancer are planned? (7:36)
Filmed at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress 2019, Barcelona, Spain.

Enrique Grande, ESMO 2022: Post-hoc analysis investigating PD-L1 expression on immune cells, and improved OS with atezolizumab in patients with urothelial cancer
PD-L1 assays use various methods to predict PD-L1/PD-1 blockade outcomes, recent data suggests clinically relevant PD-L1–expressing immune cells are dendritic cells. Dr Enrique Grande Pulido (MD Anderson Cancer Centre Madrid, Madrid, Spain) joins touchONCOLOGY to discuss a post-hoc analysis investigating PD-L1 expression on immune cells by SP142 co-localises with dendritic cells, and the associated improved overall […]
