Avelumab Shows Promise as Frontline Immunotherapy Alternative in NSCLC
Immunotherapy is quickly becoming a mainstay in the frontline setting for the treatment of patients with metastatic non–small cell lung cancer.
Nivolumab Shows Promise in Mesothelioma
Treatment with the PD-1 inhibitor nivolumab showed promising results in patients with recurrent malignant pleural mesothelioma.
First Steps Taken Toward Harmonization of PD-L1 Immunohistochemistry Testing in France
Determination of the PD-L1 status of a patient’s tumor has become increasingly important for informing the clinical decision whether to offer certain immunotherapeutic agents, making standardization of the tests and antibodies used to determine the PD-L1 status necessary to provide accurate and consistent results.
Durvalumab Provides Durable Response in Heavily Pretreated Metastatic NSCLC
Durvalumab treatment in the second-line setting or beyond demonstrated clinical benefit and led to durable responses in heavily pretreated patients with locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer.
Atezolizumab Improves Survival in Second-Line NSCLC
Treatment with the PD-L1 inhibitor atezolizumab significantly improved overall survival compared to standard chemotherapy in patients with non–small lung cancer who progressed on platinum-based chemotherapy.
Frontline Pembrolizumab Shows Superior Health-Related QoL in NSCLC
Patients with non–small cell lung cancer treated in the pembrolizumab arm of the KEYNOTE-024 trial experienced improved quality of life compared with patients who were treated with standard chemotherapy.
Osimertinib Beats Chemo in Second-Line T790M-Mutant NSCLC
Osimertinib (Tagrisso) reduced the risk of disease progression by 70% compared with a chemotherapy doublet in patients with
T790M-mutant non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who progressed after first-line targeted therapy.
Frontline Ceritinib Improves PFS Over Platinum-Based Chemo in ALK+ NSCLC
Frontline treatment with ceritinib (Zykadia) improved progression-free survival over standard chemotherapy in patients with ALK-rearranged non–small cell lung cancer.
Icotinib Improves Intracranial PFS in EGFR-Mutant NSCLC and Brain Mets
Treatment with icotinib more than doubled intracranial progression-free survival compared with whole brain irradiation combined with standard chemotherapy.
Improved PFS, ORR With Frontline Nivolumab and Nivolumab/Ipilimumab Combo in NSCLC
Findings from an efficacy update of patients participating in a study in the CheckMate series revealed that first-line nivolumab (Opdivo) demonstrated activity in advanced non–small cell lung cancer, and the addition of ipilimumab (Yervoy) resulted in enhanced activity, specifically in prolonged progression-free survival and higher objective response rates.
Early Results Positive for First-Line Avelumab in NSCLC
Treatment with first-line avelumab yielded promising clinical benefit and durable antitumor activity in patients with advanced non–small cell lung cancer.
Prognostic Factors Plus PD-L1 Expression May Be Linked With Early Survival Risk for Nivolumab in NSCLC
While treatment with nivolumab (Opdivo) significantly improved overall survival over docetaxel in patients with advanced non–small cell lung cancer in the CheckMate-057 trial, an analysis of deaths occurring within 3 months of initiation of therapy showed numerically more deaths in the nivolumab arm.
