Dr Elamin discusses results from a phase 2 study of poziotinib efficacy in EGFR exon 20–mutant non–small cell lung cancer and highlights the agent’s sensitivity in relation to insertion location.
Welcome to OncLive On Air®! I’m your host today, Ryan Scott.
OncLive On Air® is a podcast from OncLive®, which provides oncology professionals with the resources and information they need to provide the best patient care. In both digital and print formats, OncLive® covers every angle of oncology practice, from new technology to treatment advances to important regulatory decisions.
In today’s episode, we had the pleasure of speaking with Yasir Y. Elamin, MD, an assistant professor in the Department of Thoracic/Head and Neck Medical Oncology and the Division of Cancer Medicine, at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Dr Elamin highlighted the results from a phase 2 study (NCT03066206) that evaluated the clinical efficacy and resistance mechanisms of poziotinib and effects of insertion location on the agent's efficacy in EGFR exon 20–mutant non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
The study found that poziotinib yielded a 32% response rate in EGFR exon 20–mutant NSCLC and suggested that poziotinib sensitivity is highly dependent on insertion location.
In our exclusive interview, Dr Elamin expanded on the key data found with the use of poziotinib in patients with EGFR exon 20–mutant NSCLC.
