According to a retrospective analysis presented during the 2021 European Lung Cancer Congress, earlier diagnosis and biomarker testing should be more widely implemented to identify patients with EGFR-positive non–small lung cancer who may benefit for EGFR inhibition.
Integrating afatinib into standard-of-care chemoradiation with or without surgery demonstrated encouraging efficacy, feasibility, and safety results in patients with stage III EGFR-mutation positive non–small cell lung cancer.
Neratinib demonstrated single-agent efficacy with significant response and survival rates in tyrosine kinase inhibitor-refractory patients with non– small cell lung cancer whose tumors harbor EGFR exon 18 mutations.
In an interview with Targeted Oncology, Julia K. Rotow, MD, a medical oncologist at the Dana-Farber Cancer institute, discuses the results of the study of gefitinib in combination with osimertinib as frontline treatment of patients with EGFR-mutated NSCLC.
In with EGFR-mutant non–small cell lung cancer and brain metastases, oral osimertinib achieved rapid, high, and uniform brain exposure which was followed reduction in total brain metastases volume, according to results from the phase 1 ODIN-BM study.
n patients with resectable, stage II-IIIB non–small cell lung cancer whose tumors harbor EGFR mutations, neoadjuvant osimertinib will be administered as a single agent or in combination with platinum-based chemotherapy compared with chemotherapy alone in the NeoADAURA trial
