Share:

An issue covering major clinical findings and managed care updates
from the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology is
now available from
Evidence-Based Oncology, a
publication of
The American Journal of Managed Care®.

Those who could not attend the annual meeting of the American Society of
Clinical Oncology (ASCO) in June can catch up on both science and care
strategies in the special recap issue of Evidence-Based Oncology
(EBO), which is now
available
. EBOis a publication of The
American Journal of Managed Care
®.

The issue features a section on clinical
findings
, including new results on cemiplimab; the TAILORx trial,
which offered practice-changing results in breast cancer; and the
KEYNOTE-042 results that compare pembrolizumab to chemotherapy for some
patients with non–small cell lung cancer.

An update on chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)
T-cell therapy
includes promising early phase results in
hard-to-treat multiple myeloma, as well as more results from the ZUMA-1
trial for Yescarta, which show likely long-term outcomes for patients
with B-cell lymphoma who respond well to the treatment at three months.

Results in the care
strategies
section show too few heavy smokers are screened for lung
cancer, the continued role of evidence from randomized clinical trials
compared with results gleaned from claims data, and the challenge of
discussing the cost of cancer care with patients.

EBOalso features interviews
with experts who were on site at ASCO.
