ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Positive findings from fully enrolled cohorts in non-small cell lung cancer and metastatic breast cancer from the American Society of Clinical Oncology, Inc.’s (ASCO) Targeted Agent and Profiling Utilization Registry (TAPUR™) Study will be presented in poster sessions at the 2019 ASCO® Annual Meeting. In addition, the study is being expanded to include patients with active brain metastases and three new drug therapies. Pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim has also joined the study and, later this year, will provide afatinib (Gilotrif®) to participants who enroll in a tissue-agnostic cohort of patients with an NRG1 gene fusion. That same month, the TAPUR Study also will add two new drugs from existing pharmaceutical company collaborators: abemaciclib (Verzenio®, Eli Lilly and Company) and talazoparib (Talzenna®, Pfizer).
ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Three completed cohorts reporting findings in non-small cell lung cancer, breast, and metastatic colorectal cancer from the American Society of Clinical Oncology, Inc.’s (ASCO®) Targeted Agent and Profiling Utilization Registry (TAPUR™) Study were presented in poster sessions during the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2019. In addition, all seven pharmaceutical companies currently participating in the TAPUR Study have recently renewed their commitment to support it and provide study drugs at no cost for an additional one to three years.
Alexandria, VA. & Chicago – The American Society of Clinical Oncology, Inc. (ASCO) and Tempus announced today an agreement to support research sites participating in ASCO’s Targeted Agent and Profiling Utilization (TAPUR™) Study. The TAPUR Study is a prospective, non-randomized clinical trial that aims to describe the performance (both safety and efficacy) of Food and Drug Administration-approved, targeted anticancer drugs that are used for the treatment of patients who have both advanced cancer and a potentially actionable genomic alteration. Tumor profiling testing by a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA)-certified, College of American Pathologists-accredited lab is required for patients to enroll in the study.
