New Cancer Treatments and Combination Therapies Presented by Leading Experts from the John Theurer Cancer Center at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting
Date:6/3/2010

">6:00 p.m.)

As part of the multicenter CONCEPT trial, Dr. Goy tested the efficacy and safety of denileukin diftitox, a genetically engineered fusion protein that targets cancers that express the interleukin-2 receptor. The drug was tested head-to-head against the standard "CHOP" (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisolone) chemotherapy regimen in a Phase II study in which the patients receiving the new drug were also treated with CHOP. The study group consisted of patients newly diagnosed with aggressive T-cell lymphomas.  Researchers found the combination therapy effective, with a 68% overall response rate and 57% complete response rate.  As a result, they are starting a multicenter comparison study.
