Chemotherapies and targeted agents continue to dominate the treatment of colorectal cancer, although targeted agents (e.g., Avastin, Erbitux, Vectibix) are currently confined to the metastatic setting. The FDA approvals of the PD-1 inhibitors Keytruda (Merck & Co.) and Opdivo (Bristol-Myers Squibb) in 2017 and of Opdivo plus Yervoy in 2018 for microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H) or DNA mismatch repair-deficient (dMMR) metastatic colorectal cancer herald the entry of immunotherapy treatments to this biomarker-defined patient population.
