Prof Evan Yu - Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, USA

Prof Evan Yu speaks to ecancer at the 2019 ASCO Genitourinary Cancers Symposium about Cohort A of the KEYNOTE-365 study which looked at the combination of pembrolizumab plus olaparib in docetaxel-pretreated patients with metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC).

He explains that these patients were docataxel-pretreated for mCRPC and were treated with pembrolizumab IV 200mg every 3 weeks and olaparib 400mg twice daily.

Prof Yu reports that, although there was a confirmed response rate of near 12%, around half the patients had a PSA decline.

He therefore believes there is some work to do in order to understand why there is a better initial response compared with later on in the cycle.
