A late-stage clinical trial has shown therapy combining Roche's immunotherapy Tecentriq with two of its other drugs helped people with a form of advanced melanoma, the Swiss drugmaker said on Friday. The study met its primary aim of showing progression-free survival in patients with previously untreated BRAF V600 mutation-positive advanced melanoma, Roche said. Adding Tecentriq, a monoclonal antibody, to Cotellic and Zelboraf helped reduce the risk of disease worsening or death compared to administering a placebo plus Cotellic and Zelboraf. "By combining a cancer immunotherapy with targeted therapies, we hope to offer a new approach that improves outcomes for people with advanced, BRAF-mutant melanoma," said Levi Garraway, Roche's chief medical officer and head of product development. Roche has an extensive clinical trial development programme for Tecentriq, with more than 50 studies for use in fighting lung, kidney, skin, breast, colorectal, prostate, ovarian, bladder, blood, liver and head and neck cancers.

CVS to increase genetic testing for some Aetna cancer patients
ET Healthworld- Reuters

CVS Health Corp said on Thursday it will make it easier for patients with advanced cancer enrolled in some Aetna insurance plans to receive broad genetic gene sequencing tests that can help identify the best drug or treatment for them. CVS has been running an oncology program in 12 states in which patients prescribed treatment regimens that follow National Comprehensive Cancer Network guidelines automatically receive prior authorization approval, speeding the time to starting their treatment. It will now add easier access to broad-panel gene sequencing tests to that program for patients in its at-risk Aetna plans, Alan Lotvin, CVS' chief transformation officer said in an interview. In at-risk insurance plans CVS, which acquired Aetna last year for $69 billion, takes on the risk of higher member costs. The genetic sequencing of tumors would be available for patients with late-stage cancer or whose cancers progress after prior treatments, representing about 30 percent of patients, Lotvin said. The testing will be done by Tempus, a next-generation gene sequencing company in Chicago.
