The combination of plinabulin with docetaxel showed improvement in overall survival compared with docetaxel alone as treatment of patients with second- and third-line non –small cell lung cancer with EGFR wild type, meeting the primary end point of the phase 3 DUBLIN-3 clinical trial.
Research shows that methods used to treat the wide epidermal growth factor receptor-positive population are often not successful for patients with specific biomarkers like EGFR exon 20 insertion mutations, highlighting an ongoing need for more targeted therapies.
In a retrospective analysis of patients with advanced non–small cell lung cancer and EGFR mutations treated with osimertinib, investigators found that body mass index of 25 kg/mq2 or more had a negative impact on survival outcomes.
Alexander Spira, MD, PhD, FACP, director of the Virginia Cancer Specialists Research Institute, discusses the safety profile of amivantamab and lazertinib in EGFR-mutated non-small cell lung cancer, based on data from the CHRYSALIS tria.
Treatment with aumolertinib led to improved progression free survival and duration of response in patients with advanced non-small cell lung caner with epidermal growth factor receptor, compared with gefitinib.
