The China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) has approved osimertinib for the treatment of patients with locally-advanced or metastatic EGFR T790M-positive non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with progression following treatment with an EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI).

In the AURA trial, 201 patients at a median age of 62 years received osimertinib. Of patients enrolled, 30% were receiving osimertinib as second-line therapy while 70% were treated in the third-line setting. Ninety-eight percent of tumors tested positive for T790M.


In updated data from WCLC,2 the ORR was 61% (95% CI, 54-68). The median duration of response was not reached at the time of the analysis and the median PFS was also not yet calculable. At this analysis, only a quarter of events had occurred.
