Evaluation of the Length of Treatment With PD-1/PD-L1 Inhibitors in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

2019-11-11 17:49:14 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Based on the overwhelming positive response to this survey and the large number of patients being treated with PD-1/PD-L1 therapy in the UPMC system, the investigators are proposing a trial that will randomize patients who have disease stability to stop treatment at 1 year or continue treatment until disease progression. The investigators anticipate that the results of this study will answer questions regarding the optimal duration of treatment. therapy.

Description

Within the UPMC system, approximately 2,300 patients received PD-1/PD-L1 therapy for a variety of advanced solid tumors within the past year. It is anticipated that this number will increase as the clinical indications for treatment with these agents also increase. The investigators conducted a survey of 60 Medical Oncologists within the UPMC system regarding their interest in a trial that will attempt to address the question of optimal length of PD-1/PD-L1 treatment. Fifty-two (86.7%) physicians indicated that they would participate in a clinical trial that had a primary goal of determining whether it was feasible to stop immunotherapy after 1 year of treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An internationally recognized set of published rules used for evaluation of cancer treatment that define when tumors found in cancer patients improve, worsen, or remain stable during treatment. These criteria are based specifically on the response of the tumor(s) to treatment, and not on the overall health status of the patient resulting from treatment.

Garbage, refuse, or sludge, or other discarded materials from a wastewater treatment plant, water supply treatment plant, and air pollution control facility that include solid, semi-solid, or contained material. It does not include materials dissolved in domestic sewage, irrigation return flows, or industrial discharges.

Aminoacridine derivative that is a potent intercalating antineoplastic agent. It is effective in the treatment of acute leukemias and malignant lymphomas, but has poor activity in the treatment of solid tumors. It is frequently used in combination with other antineoplastic agents in chemotherapy protocols. It produces consistent but acceptable myelosuppression and cardiotoxic effects.

An aromatase inhibitor that produces a state of "medical" adrenalectomy by blocking the production of adrenal steroids. It also blocks the conversion of androgens to estrogens. Aminoglutethimide has been used in the treatment of advanced breast and prostate cancer. It was formerly used for its weak anticonvulsant properties. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p454)

One of the ANGIOTENSIN-CONVERTING ENZYME INHIBITORS (ACE inhibitors), orally active, that has been used in the treatment of hypertension and congestive heart failure.
