Crizotinib shows antitumor activity, with a tolerable safety profile, in NSCLC with MET exon 14 alterations.

Released: June 7, 2016

Evaluation of patients with metastatic NSCLC treated past first RECIST defined progression with anti–PD-1 therapy in clinical trials finds that a small proportion (8%) attained a subsequent response to treatment.

Released: June 6, 2016

Concurrent CRT using modern RT techniques produced similar rates of survival and toxicity whether given once daily or twice daily for limited-stage SCLC.

Released: June 7, 2016

DFS and OS outcomes similar in patients with early-stage, resected NSCLC for 4 different cisplatin-based doublet chemotherapy regimens tested.

Released: June 8, 2016

Early phase data suggest that osimertinib is safe, tolerable, and produces clinical benefit in patients with difficult-to-treat NSCLC.

Released: June 10, 2016

In oligometastatic NSCLC without progression after first-line systemic therapy, local consolidative therapy significantly improved PFS without increasing toxicity.

Released: June 9, 2016

Brigatinib showed a 54% ORR with a median PFS > 1 year in patients with crizotinib-refractory ALK+ NSCLC.

Released: June 13, 2016

J-ALEX met its primary endpoint--alectinib significantly improved PFS vs crizotinib with a favorable safety profile in ALK inhibitor–naive patients with ALK-positive NSCLC.

Released: June 10, 2016

Lorlatinib is well tolerated in ALK+ and ROS1+ NSCLC and shows antitumor activity, including intracranial activity, in patients pretreated with available inhibitors of ALK and ROS1.

Released: June 7, 2016

Treatment-experienced patients with rare RET-fusion driver mutations responded well to single-agent vandetanib in this small trial, with more than one half of patients achieving an objective response.

Released: June 6, 2016

Here are the studies being presented at ASCO 2016 that David R. Gandara, MD, and I think are most likely to affect clinical practice in our patients with lung cancer.

In this phase I study, the antibody–drug conjugate rovalpituzumab tesirine demonstrated good response rates in patients with relapsed/refractory SCLC and high DLL3 expression, making it the first biomarker-directed therapy with activity in this disease.
