Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers in men and women, and is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in the United States. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 155,000 Americans will die from lung cancer in 2017, representing approximately 25% of all cancer deaths. Non–small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), the most common form of the disease, accounts for 80% to 85% of all lung cancer cases.
CheckMate-227 Meets Co-Primary End Point of PFS with Nivolumab/Ipilimumab Combination in NSCLC, Confirms TMB as Viable Biomarker
Treatment Paradigm Shift in ALK-Positive NSCLC Raises Further Questions Regarding ALK Inhibitor Sequencing
FDA Grants Orphan Drug Designation to Seribantumab, an Investigational Treatment for Heregulin-Positive NSCLC
The College of American Pathologists, the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, and the Association for Molecular Pathology have updated their 2013 molecular analysis guideline for the selection of patients with lung cancer for TKI treatment, to include 18 new recommendations and 3 revisions to the existing guidance.
Osimertinib Nearly Doubles PFS, Receives Breakthrough Therapy Designation in Frontline Treatment of EGFR-Positive NSCLC
Pembrolizumab, Pemetrexed, and Platinum Chemotherapy Combination Shows Improved OS and PFS in Patients with Metastatic Nonsquamous NSCLC
In the pivotal phase 3 KEYNOTE-189 trial of pembrolizumab (Keytruda) combined with pemetrexed and cisplatin or carboplatin for the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic, nonsquamous non–small-cell lung cancer, the regimen showed significant improvements in overall survival and progression-free survival.
Although crizotinib is the standard of care for the first-line treatment of patients with ALK-positive non–small-cell lung cancer, disease progression occurs in most crizotinib-treated patients, often calling for the use of second-generation ALK inhibitors such as alectinib, brigatinib, and ceritinib, among other treatment strategies.
