Therapeutic options for gastroesophageal cancer are limited; only two targeted agents are approved to treat gastric and GEJ adenocarcinoma in the major pharmaceutical markets under study, and neither agent is approved to treat esophageal cancer. Roche/Genentech/Chugai’s Herceptin is the first-line standard of care for HER2-positive metastatic patients, and Eli Lilly’s Cyramza is approved for patients with advanced disease following fluoropyrimidine- and platinum-based therapy. Additionally, two PD-1 inhibitors—Bristol-Myers Squibb/Ono Pharmaceutical’s Opdivo (Japan only) and Merck & Co.’s Keytruda (United States only)—are approved to treat third- and later-line gastric and GEJadenocarcinoma. Despite these approvals, the gastroesophageal cancer therapy market is largely untapped and thus represents a lucrative opportunity for drug developers. The late-phase pipeline is buoyant; agents span a range of drug classes and target various gastroesophageal cancer populations associated with significant unmet need. These treatments may soon offer patients a more-optimistic outlook.
