American Association for Cancer Research (AACR)

Among the multitude of drugs in early development with data at AACR were: AbbVie’s ABBV-303, a TriNKET for solid tumors; Bayer and Vividion Thera-peutics’ 225Ac-PSMA-Trillium, a radioligand for metastatic cancer; Pfizer’s PF-07220060, a CDK4 inhibitor for breast cancer; Revolution Medicines’ RMC-9805, a KRASG12D inhibitor for solid tumors; and Vividion Therapeutics and Roche’s VVD-214/RO-7589831, a WRN helicase inhibitor for MSI-high cancers. Other research of interest at AACR: Hunter BioDiscovery’s high throughput plat-form for discovering new combinations of existing drugs. And some regulatory insights from the National Cancer Institute director.

American Academy of Neurology

Among the interesting data on new drugs (and new uses for existing drugs) at AAN were treatments for Angelman syndrome, chronic infectious demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), Devic disease (NMOSD), Huntington's disease (HD), migraine, multiple sclerosis.

FDA Oncology Drugs Advisory Committee (ODAC) Update

American Academy of Dermatology

Drug development is alive and well in dermatology, and among the interesting data at AAD were studies on new drugs/new uses for existing drugs -- and a botanical -- for psoriasis, submental fat, hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), atopic dermatitis, and alopecia

Alzheimer's Update

The data on Eisai and Biogen’s Leqembi (lecanemab) was the highlight of the Clinical Trials on Alzheimer's Disease (CTAD) meeting in Boston. Here we dive into the data.
