Solange Peters, MD, PhD, head of the Thoracic Malignancies Program in the Department of Oncology at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, discusses the FLAURA trial for patients with EGFR-mutated non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

The FLAURA trial is investigating osimertinib (Tagrisso) versus standard of care in the frontline setting. The primary endpoint of this study is progression-free survival (PFS). The FLAURA trial has shown an improvement of PFS with 18.6 months.

It has also been discovered the osimertinib is a good regimen for CNS metastases, states Peters. Additionally, there was a beneficial toxicity profile for the patients who received osimertinib. According to Peters, osimertinib is the new standard of care for patient with EGFR-mutated NSCLC.
