Analysis of Intracranial Response to Brigatinib in ALK-Positive NSCLC With Brain Metastases

In an analysis of two clinical trials reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Camidge et al found that brigatinib (Alunbrig) produced high intracranial response rates and good intracranial progression-free survival in patients with ALK-positive non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and...

ASCO 2018: Updated ALEX Trial Results on Alectinib in Treatment-Naive ALK Mutation–Positive NSCLC

Updated results of the global phase III ALEX trial comparing alectinib (Alecensa) with crizotinib (Xalkori) as first-line treatment against ALK-positive non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) show a median progression-free survival of 34.8 months in 152 patients treated with alectinib vs 10.9...

ALEX Trial: Alectinib vs Crizotinib in Untreated Advanced ALK-Positive NSCLC

As reported at the recent ASCO Annual Meeting and in The New England Journal of Medicine by Peters et al, the phase III ALEX trial has shown improvement in progression-free survival with alectinib (Alecensa) vs crizotinib (Xalkori) in the first-line treatment of advanced ALK-positive...

SIDEBAR: Molecular Heterogeneity Complicates Management of Resistance

The molecular heterogeneity of lung cancers will make it a challenge to manage resistance in this era of targeted therapy, according to D. Ross Camidge, MD, PhD, of the University of Colorado, Denver. A case in point: the anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) story. Recently updated data for crizotinib ...

Research Increasingly Points to the Role of Molecular Diversity in Metastatic Lung Cancer

Molecular diversity—its existence, extent, and implications for therapy—was a central theme of key metastatic lung cancer studies presented at this year’s ASCO meeting, according to D. Ross Camidge, MD, PhD, of the University of Colorado, Denver, who addressed major findings in advanced lung cancer ...

Early Evidence Supports Novel ALK Inhibitor in Patients with Non–Small Cell Lung Cancer With Brain Metastases 

Identifying ALK rearrangements as a cancer target in patients with lung cancer led to the development and FDA approval of crizotinib (Xalkori) to treat ALK-positive non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Several second-generation ALK inhibitors are in development, and these agents appear to work in...

REVEL: Winning a Questionable Race

The investigators and sponsors of the phase III REVEL trial should be congratulated and probably commiserated. In this large study, reported by Garon and colleagues in The Lancet and reviewed in this issue of The ASCO Post, 1,253 patients with advanced non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) were...

Top 5 Breakthroughs in the Treatment of Advanced Lung Cancer

A countdown of the top 5 breakthrough therapies in the treatment of advanced lung cancer was presented by D. Ross Camidge, MD, PhD, at the 2014 Chicago Multidisciplinary Symposium in Thoracic Oncology.1 Dr. Camidge is Director, Thoracic Oncology Clinical and Clinical Research Programs, and...

Expert Point of View: D. Ross Camidge, MD, PhD

PD-L1 is an imperfect biomarker, according to formal discussant of this paper, D. Ross Camidge, MD, PhD, of the University of Colorado Comprehensive Cancer Center, Denver. “The importance of a good predictive assay in this field [of immunotherapy] is so great that it is impossible to ascribe any...

Reduced Renal Function Observed in Patients Taking Crizotinib for Non‒Small Cell Lung Cancer

Patients receiving crizotinib (Xalkori) for the treatment of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-positive non?small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) had reductions in their estimated glomerular filtration rate, according to the findings of a study by Brosnan et al published in the journal Cancer. In the...
