Lung Cancer

Results of phase II/III trial suggest that Bevacizumab/Pemetrexed/Cisplatin is a new treatment option although increased toxicity is a potential concern

Released: June 2, 2015

In this phase Ib study, pembrolizumab demonstrated promising antitumor activity in SCLC with a 35% overall response rate and 25% of patients experiencing a partial response.

Released: June 1, 2015

Results of phase I study of nivolumab with or without ipilimumab in patients with SCLC and progression on prior therapy.

Released: May 31, 2015

AZD9291, a third-generation irreversible EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor, demonstrated an ORR of 73% with few grade ≥ 3 adverse events in previously untreated patients with EGFR mutation–positive, advanced NSCLC.

Released: June 1, 2015

Rociletinib, a third-generation EGFR TKI, is active in patients with acquired resistance to previous EGFR TKI therapy as detected by either standard tumor tissue biopsy or a plasma-based assay.

Released: June 2, 2015

Phase II study results suggest dabrafenib plus trametinib have meaningful antitumor activity, manageable safety profile in BRAF V600E–mutated NSCLC.

Released: June 3, 2015

Results from the CheckMate 017 trial, which led to FDA approval of nivolumab in advanced squamous NSCLC, show 3.2 month improvement in overall survival with fewer adverse events vs docetaxel.

Released: June 1, 2015

In an interim analysis of atezolizumab as second-line or third-line therapy for advanced NSCLC, clinical efficacy correlated with PD-L1 expression level.

Released: June 2, 2015

Early results from this phase I trial indicate a manageable safety profile along with robust, durable activity with pembrolizumab + ipilimumab in previously treated patients with advanced NSCLC.

Released: June 2, 2015

Results from the CheckMate 057 trial demonstrate superior OS and favorable safety profile with nivolumab vs docetaxel in patients with advanced nonsquamous NSCLC who failed prior platinum-based doublet chemotherapy.

Released: May 31, 2015

Naiyer Rizvi, MD, and Heather Wakelee, MD, provide their analysis of key lung cancer presentations from the 2015 clinical oncology meeting in Chicago.
