Reporting from 2021 ASCO Annual Meeting, Ian Chau reports on practice changing results of immunotherapy in gastric and oesophageal cancers. He comments first on CheckMate 648 testing nivolumab plus ipilimumab or nivolumab plus chemotherapy versus chemotherapy in advanced oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma, then on CheckMate 649 evaluating the benefits of adding nivolumab to first-line chemotherapy in advanced gastroesophageal cancer. Finally he discusses the efficacy and safety results from CheckMate 577 testing adjuvant nivolumab following neo-adjuvant chemoradiotherapy in resected oesophageal or gastroesophageal junction cancer.
