Clinical Takeaways

  • Overall survival in patients with advanced gastric and GE cancers has improved with more effective systemic therapy

  • Current therapies in the second line and beyond setting may not be reflective of the changing landscape of first-line therapy in advanced disease, but trials are ongoing

  • Factors to consider when evaluating a patient for the second line and beyond therapy include prior lines of therapy and residual toxicities, performance status and competing comorbidities

  • PTX+RAM is the standard of care for second-line treatment, but there are multiple candidates for third-line treatment, which is not clearly defined

  • For HER2-positive gastric cancer, T-DXd was shown to be effective after trastsuzumab failure. Currently, the development of second-line therapy after trastsuzumab failure is the focus of attention
