A study of the combination of radiation therapy and immune checkpoint inhibitors for the treatment of advanced lung cancer found a modest risk of side effects.

The use of reirradiation with intensity-modulated proton therapy yielded strong overall survival with limited toxicity in patients with thoracic tumors, potentially offering a new option in this patient population.

Thromboprophylaxis with oral apixaban was similar to subcutaneous enoxaparin with regard to safety outcomes in women undergoing surgery for suspected gynecologic malignancies.

The FDA has approved ribociclib in combination with an aromatase inhibitor for the first-line treatment of postmenopausal women with advanced, HR-positive/HER2-negative breast cancer.

The addition of the immune therapy motolimod to pegylated liposomal doxorubicin failed to improve overall survival among women with recurrent epithelial ovarian carcinoma in a randomized phase II trial.

A long-term phase III trial found that maintenance chemotherapy did not improve overall survival over surveillance among women with advanced ovarian/fallopian tube/peritoneal cancer who had a complete response to first-line therapy.

Molecular expression analysis found that high-grade serous ovarian carcinomas exhibit significant alterations to cell cycle genes, DNA damage genes, and other pathways following treatment with neoadjuvant chemotherapy.

Men who receive testosterone replacement therapy had an increased rate of favorable-risk prostate cancer compared to those who did not use the therapy, and a decreased rate of aggressive prostate cancer.

Treating women with stage IVB cervical cancer with whole pelvic radiation along with standard chemotherapy improved survival over chemotherapy alone in a retrospective study.

The use of sentinel lymph node biopsy alone in women with early cervical cancer resulted in less surgical morbidity without a significant increase in the risk of recurrence, according to a new prospective study.
