CAA Sports is the preeminent athlete representation firm in the world, with more than 1,000 individual athlete, broadcaster and coaching clients and double the on-field contract value of the next closest agency. The firm’s sports business also advising on more than $2.7 billion in sponsorship rights deals for premier consumer brands, negotiating more than $3.7 billion in precedent-setting property sales deals, and managing more than $37 billion in media rights transactions.

Through its strategic marketing and consulting practices, CAA advises blue-chip consumer brands, including JP Morgan Chase, Intel, Bose, KPMG and IMAX, among others.
Building off of 12 years of success in the Chinese market, CAA recently formed CAA China in partnership with CMC to expand opportunities for the agency and clients in the fast-growing region. In addition to CAA’s longtime representation of top Chinese talent and leadership in film finance, the combined expertise and resources will create new businesses ranging from talent representation, endorsements, and sports, to digital media, music, and original content production.

Not intended for UK- and US-based media Pierre Fabre and its partner Array BioPharma Inc. today announced updated safety and efficacy results, including OS, from the safety lead-in of the Phase 3 BEACON CRC trial evaluating the triplet combination of encorafenib, a BRAF inhibitor, binimetinib, a MEK inhibitor and cetuximab, an anti-EGFR antibody, in patients with BRAF V600E -mutant metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC). The results showed that, at the time of analysis, the OS data were fully mature through 12.6 months and that the median OS had not yet been reached. The one-year overall survival rate for this cohort was 62%. These data were presented in an oral presentation on Saturday, June 23, at the ESMO 20th World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer in Barcelona, Spain. The median progression-free survival (mPFS) for patients treated with the triplet was 8 months [95% CI 5.6-9.3] and is similar between patients receiving one prior line of therapy and patients receiving two prior lines
Compelling Data for LONSURF® (trifluridine/tipiracil) in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer Presented at ESMO’s World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer by Servier and Taiho23.6.2018 08:10 | Pressemelding
Servier and Taiho Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. today announced that the TASCO-1 trial demonstrated promising results for LONSURF® (trifluridine/tipiracil) in combination with bevacizumab in patients with previously untreated metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) who are not suitable for intensive treatment, with a median progression-free survival (PFS) of 9.2 months (ranging from 7.6 to 11.5 months). A second non-comparative arm in the trial, evaluated the outcome of patients treated with the current standard of care of capecitabine in combination with bevacizumab. The median PFS of this arm was 7.8 months (ranging from 5.5 to 10.1 months). “Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in the world. While there has been some progress in treatment, there are still few options for patients with metastatic disease who are not suitable for intensive treatment,” said Professor Eric Van Cutsem, Head of Digestive Oncology at the University of Leuven, Belgium. “These compelling results suggest
