Cancer Network presents exclusive coverage from the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2016 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium, held January 7–9 in San Francisco. We’ll bring you reports as we cover the latest research, trials, scientific advances, and controversies that are changing the way genitourinary cancers are managed and treated.

Multiple Myeloma

Despite similar survival, multiple myeloma patients treated with lenalidomide experienced lower rates of neurologic toxicity than those treated with thalidomide.

A number of clinical and sociodemographic factors, including age and gender, were found to be independently associated with fatigue and depression among cancer patients who were treated with hematopoietic cell transplantation.

Some adult-onset cancer survivors have an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease later in life compared to noncancer controls.

The FDA recently expanded the drug label for carfilzomib (Kyprolis), which is now approved in combination with dexamethasone or with lenalidomide plus dexamethasone for patients with relapsed or refractory disease who have received one to three lines of therapy.

A new study has shown that dinaciclib disrupted homologous recombination function and led to cell death in multiple myeloma cell lines when combined with the PARP1/2 inhibitor ABT-888.

Researchers have identified several factors that may help to predict the progression of vertebral fractures and future fractures in patients with multiple myeloma.

Patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma continue to have deep and durable responses to daratumumab plus lenalidomide/dexamethasone.
