Drs Javle, Bañales, and Hollebecque discuss the innate and acquired resistance pathways to FGFR inhibitors in cholangiocarcinoma and how these pathways can have important effects on clinical outcomes. They also look ahead to ongoing clinical trials evaluating next-generation FGFR inhibitors that may be able to overcome resistance mechanisms and improve progression-free and overall survival in cholangiocarcinoma.

The 2022 ASCO GI Cancers Symposium clearly highlighted the rapid trajectory of clinical research in biliary tract cancers. One of the most eagerly anticipated studies, TOPAZ-1, was presented by Do-Youn Oh, MD, PhD, from Seoul National University Hospital in South Korea. This phase 3 clinical trial enrolled 685 patients and investigated the addition of the PD-L1–directed agent durvalu­mab to gemcitabine and cisplatin chemotherapy backbone versus these chemotherapies alone. The results demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in overall survival (OS), overall response rate (ORR), and progression-free survival (PFS), without dose-limiting toxicities.
