Cabozantinib/Atezolizumab and the Future of Metastatic Colorectal Cancer Treatment: Thomas Abrams, MD

Treatment options are limited for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer who have microsatellite-stable disease, which renders them ineligible for immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy. In a cohort of the COSMIC-021 trial, a team of researchers led by Dr. Thomas Abrams, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, investigated the efficacy of cabozantinib plus atezolizumab for this patient population. Dr. Abrams recently presented the trial's results at the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium. In this interview, he discusses the role that cabozantinib/atezolizumab may play for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, particularly those with RAS wild-type disease, in the coming years.
