Natasha B. Leighl, BSc, MMSc, MD, discusses efficacy findings with the EGFR/MET inhibitor amivantamab in patients with advanced non–small cell lung cancer harboring MET exon 14 skipping mutations.
The addition of atezolizumab to bevacizumab, carboplatin, and pemetrexed or paclitaxel (ABCP) did not result in a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival vs BCP for patients with metastatic nonsquamous non–small cell lung cancer in the first line, missing the primary end point of the phase 3 IMpower151 study.
Treatment with durvalumab plus tremelimumab and chemotherapy led to higher rates of long-term clinical benefit compared with chemotherapy alone in the treatment of patients with first-line metastatic non–small cell lung cancer.
The addition of perioperative durvalumab to neoadjuvant chemotherapy led to a significant improvement in terms of pathological complete response and event-free survival compared with placebo plus chemotherapy in patients with resectable non–small cell lung cancer.
The addition of durvalumab to chemotherapy prior to surgery, followed by adjuvant durvalumab, did not provide a clear clinical benefit in patients with early-stage non–small cell lung cancer harboring an EGFR mutation, according to data from the phase 3 AEGEAN trial.
Zongertinib will proceed to phase 1b evaluation at doses of 120 mg and 240 mg once daily in patients with HER2–mutant non–small cell lung cancer following preliminary efficacy signals and acceptable safety in patients with advanced HER2–mutant solid tumors enrolled in the dose-escalation portion of the phase 1a/b BEAMION Lung-1 trial.
Treatment with durvalumab was associated with lower real-world progression-free survival in patients with unresectable, stage III EGFR-mutated non–small cell lung cancer vs patients with EGFR wild-type disease.
Osimertinib in combination with platinum-based therapy and pemetrexed demonstrated a statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in progression-free survival vs osimertinib monotherapy in patients with EGFR-mutated advanced non–small cell lung cancer.
The addition of datopotamab deruxtecan to durvalumab, with or without carboplatin, demonstrated favorable efficacy and safety in patients with advanced or metastatic non–small cell lung cancer, according to an interim analysis of the phase 1b TROPION-Lung04 trial.
The combination of the SHP2 inhibitor TNO155 and the KRAS G12C inhibitor JDQ433 showed antitumor activity in patients with KRAS G12C-mutated solid tumors, including non–small cell lung cancer, irrespective of prior treatment with a KRAS G12C inhibitor.
Treatment with at least 90 μg/kg of the novel DLLC-targeting T-cell–engager BI 764532 was well tolerated and led to tumor shrinkage in patients with small cell lung cancer and neuroendocrine carcinoma.
Treatment with iruplinalkib significantly improved progression-free survival and produced a higher objective response rate compared with crizotinib in patients with ALK TKI–naïve, locally advanced and metastatic ALK-positive non–small cell lung cancer, according to data from a prespecified interim analysis of the phase 3 INSPIRE trial.
The use of the oral, brain penetrant, furmonertinib, resulted in encouraging responses and a tolerable safety profile in patients with advanced non–small cell lung cancer harboring EGFR exon 20 insertion mutations, according to data from the phase 1b FAVOUR trial.
Early antitumor activity has been observed in patients with metastatic non–small cell lung cancer treated with the combination of sacituzumab govitecan-hziy and pembrolizumab in the first-line setting.
Treatment with repotrectinib in patients with ROS1-positive non–small cell lung cancer, specifically those who were tyrosine kinase inhibitor-naïve or -pretreated, continued to demonstrate durable clinical activity, as well as durable intracranial responses.
Patritumab deruxtecan displayed clinically meaningful and durable efficacy in patients with advanced EGFR-mutated non–small cell lung cancer who experienced progression following treatment with an EGFR-directed TKI and platinum-based chemotherapy.
Adagrasib monotherapy provided durable efficacy for patients with KRAS G12C–mutated locally advanced or metastatic non–small cell lung cancer, according to 2-year follow-up data from the phase 1/2 KRYSTAL-1 trial.
The addition of benmelstobart to anlotinib and etoposide plus carboplatin significantly improved progression-free survival and overall survival over placebo plus etoposide plus carboplatin when used in the first-line treatment of patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer.
Treatment with durvalumab and concurrent radiotherapy provided a significant benefit in progression-free survival in patients with locally advanced non–small cell lung cancer, meeting the primary end point of the phase 2 DOLPHIN trial.
Although frontline treatment with avelumab resulted in a longer overall survival and progression-free survival than that observed with platinum-based chemotherapy in patients with advanced non–small cell lung cancer and high PD-L1 positivity, this difference did not achieve statistical significance.
Sunvozertinib monotherapy produced meaningful responses in patients with locally advanced or metastatic non–small cell lung cancer harboring EGFR exon 20 insertion mutations who received prior treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy, according to pooled data from the phase 1 WU-KONG1 and WU-KONG2 trials, plus the phase 2 WU-KONG6 trial.
