Paolo Tarantino: Why was IMpassion132 negative?

Daniel Stover, Medical Oncologist and Computational Biologist at Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, shared a post by Paolo Tarantino, on X:

Disappointing that addition of immunotherapy did not benefit rapid relapse.

Thanks to Sara Tolaney for highlighting Stover Lab work showing primary TNBC that develop rapid relapse highly immune suppressed, perhaps foreshadowing IMpassion132 results.” .

Quoting Paolo Tarantino’s post:

“Why was IMpassion132 negative? And what’s the path forward for improving outcomes in early recurrent TNBC? Great discussion by Sara Tolaney, recapitulating the current status and future hopes for one of the most challenging presentations of breast cancer.”
