Among the 19 presentations of miscellaneous new agents at this year's meeting, several described novel cytotoxics and hormonal agents. The cytotoxic agents included microtubule inhibitors (eribulin, nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel, peptide-bound paclitaxel), a topoisomerase inhibitor (nanoirinotecan), and an alkylating agent (palifosfamide). Hormonal agents included an aromatase inhibitor (anastrazole), an estrogen receptor antagonist (fulvestrant), and a selective androgen receptor modulator (GTx-024).
