When given concurrently with chemoradiotherapy, AstraZeneca’s Imfinzi in a late-stage lung cancer study did not lead to significant improvements in progression-free survival versus chemoradiotherapy alone.

Early stage ALK-positive non-small cell lung cancer patients treated with Roche’s Alecensa saw an “unprecedented” 76% drop in the risk of recurrence or death, the company announced.

The abstracts, made available Tuesday ahead of the European Society for Medical Oncology Congress 2023, show strong efficacy data from some promising non-small cell lung cancer treatments.

The blockbuster PD-1 inhibitor’s label expanded further on Monday when the FDA greenlit Keytruda as a perioperative treatment for certain patients with earlier stages of non-small cell lung cancer.

J&J’s therapy combination of antibody treatment Rybrevant and experimental drug lazertinib showed a clinically meaningful improvement in progression-free survival rate in patients.

The first-in-class antibody-drug conjugate—in combination with Merck’s Keytruda—has shown promising results in a Phase II study of patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer.

J&J’s therapy was tested in patients in whom the disease progressed even after they were treated with AstraZeneca’s Tagrisso.

Phase III trial data published Thursday show significant survival benefit as a first-line treatment in advanced non-small cell lung cancer patients not fit for standard platinum-based doublet chemotherapy.

The therapy is the first in more than seven years to show a significant extension in overall survival in metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in late-stage study.

The FDA approved Merck’s Keytruda for the treatment of stage IB, II or IIIA non-small cell lung cancer after resection or platinum-based chemotherapy.
