Ramalingam, MD, of Emory University, discusses results from the final overall survival analysis of the phase III FLAURA trial in EGFR-mutated advanced non–small cell lung cancer, which showed that osimertinib provided a survival benefit vs comparator EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy in the first-line setting (Abstract LBA5).
Ghassan K. Abou-Alfa, MD, MBA, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses phase III study findings showing improvement in progression-free survival among patients with an isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) mutation who received ivosidenib compared with a similar group that received placebo (Abstract LBA10).
