Prof Daniel Petrylak - Yale Cancer Center, New Haven, Connecticut, USA

Prof Petrylak speaks with ecancer at ESMO 2017 about the combination of docetaxel and ramucirumab, a targeted therapy against VEGFR2, to treat metastatic urothelial carcinoma.

He describes the angiogenic control of the added antibody leading to a doubled progression free survival and overall response rate, with a trend towards improved overall survival, though notes this was not what the trial was powered for.

Prof Petrylak describes the toxicity of the combination as well tolerated, and that this is a suitable treatment choice for urothelial cancer patients.

Watch Prof Petrylak present these results at a press conference here, and read more in our press coverage here.
