January 29, 2021 — Mobocertinib (formerly TAK-788) demonstrated clinically meaningful benefit and a manageable safety profile in previously treated patients with metastatic non–small cell lung cancer who have EGFR exon 20 insertion mutations.
Sarah B. Goldberg, MD, MPH, discusses the toxicity profile associated with amivantamab in metastatic non–small cell lung cancer that harbors EGFR exon 20 insertion mutations.
John V. Heymach, MD, PhD, discusses the incidence of EGFR exon 20 insertions in lung cancer, diagnostic challenges of identifying EGFR exon 20 insertions, and data from the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer 2020 World Conference on Lung Cancer with mobocertinib and amivantamab in this patient subset.
This publication includes a summary of data on the treatment of patients with EGFR exon 20 insertions in non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and the rapidly changing landscape of HER2-targeted treatment. Thoracic oncologists, who specialize in the treatment of lung cancer, provide key insights on the current management of uncommon EGFR mutations in NSCLC and the emerging treatment landscape of targeted therapies.
