"We are excited to present a number of key datasets across a broad range of diseases at ESMO this year, including results from our Tecentriq combination study in people with previously untreated advanced bladder cancer, the first positive Phase III cancer immunotherapy trial in this setting, wie die Roche mitteilt.

In addition, we will present data from our Phase III Tecentriq monotherapy study in previously untreated advanced lung cancer,” said Sandra Horning, MD, Roche’s Chief Medical Officer and Head of Global Product Development. “We will also share data from a study using Foundation Medicine’s liquid (blood) biopsy, a more patient-friendly approach to diagnosing and treating cancer.

The results of the first cohort of this study involving ALK+ non-small cell lung cancer patients who received Alecensa will be presented at the congress.”IMvigor130 met its co-primary endpoint of progression-free survival (PFS). The combination showed a statistically significant reduction in the risk of disease worsening or death in people with previously untreated locally advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (mUC).

Encouraging overall survival (OS) results were observed at this interim analysis, however these results are not yet mature. The study represents the first positive Phase III immunotherapy combination study in patients with previously untreated bladder cancer.

Tecentriq monotherapy was the first cancer immunotherapy approved in bladder cancer.In addition, updated OS results from the IMpower133 study will also be presented at ESMO. IMpower133 showed that first-line Tecentriq in combination with chemotherapy helped people with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer (ES-SCLC) live significantly longer compared with chemotherapy alone.

This updated data presentation will also feature analysis by PD-L1 subgroup.Featured in the official ESMO press programme at 08:30 on 28 September will be a retrospective analysis using comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) of carcinoma of unknown primary origin (CUP) patients that investigated eligibility for molecularly guided targeted or immunotherapy treatment options in the CUPISCO study design. To make that determination, archival tissue from centrally reviewed CUP cases was subjected to CGP using the FoundationOne® CDx test.

CUPISCO is a Phase II, randomised, active-controlled, multi-centre study comparing the efficacy and safety of targeted therapy or cancer immunotherapy guided by genomic profiling versus platinum-based chemotherapy in patients with a CUP site.Roche has been working to transform cancer care for more than 50 years, bringing the first specifically designed anti-cancer chemotherapy drug, fluorouracil, to patients in 1962.
