Adding midostaurin to chemotherapy prolonged survival in younger adult patients with acute myeloid leukemia and a FLT3 mutation, according to a randomized trial.

Adding the novel CD20 inhibitor ublituximab to ibrutinib offered improved response rates and greater depth of response over ibrutinib alone in patients with relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

An anti–PD-1 monoclonal antibody is safe and effective for patients with unresectable, locally advanced, or metastatic cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma.

Long-term survivors of wild-type KRAS colorectal cancer tumors had significantly improved survival with regular use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Adding nintedanib to pemetrexed/cisplatin improved the progression-free survival of patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma compared with placebo.

Undergoing autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation was effective and safe in patients with refractory multiple myeloma, including those patients who are refractory to both proteasome inhibitors and immunomodulatory agents.

After extended follow-up, the KEYNOTE-052 study has shown that first-line pembrolizumab offers durable responses and no new safety signals in patients with cisplatin-ineligible advanced urothelial cancer.

Patients with node-positive intermediate-thickness melanoma had an increased rate of regional disease control when undergoing completion lymph-node dissection for sentinel node metastases, however, there was no increase in melanoma-specific survival.

The combination of pembrolizumab and the IDO1 inhibitor epacadostat was active and generally well tolerated in patients with urothelial carcinoma.
