Jarushka Naidoo, MHS, MBBCh, of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, University of Medicine and Health Sciences, discusses some of the key lung cancer data presented at the ESMO Congress 2023: CheckMate 77T, a phase III study of nivolumab, chemotherapy, and surgery for previously untreated resectable stage II–IIIB NSCLC; the ALINA study of alectinib vs chemotherapy in patients with early-stage ALK-positive NSCLC; and overall survival data from KEYNOTE-671, which established the role of chemoimmunotherapy and pembrolizumab. Dr. Naidoo also reviews data in small cell lung and thymic cancers.

Ze-rui Zhao, PhD, of China’s Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center, discusses new phase II findings on stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) with sequential immunochemotherapy as a neoadjuvant treatment of patients with resectable non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This therapy yielded a high major pathologic response rate, according to Dr. Zhao (Abstract LBA60).

Jonathan D. Spicer, MD, PhD, of McGill University, discusses findings from the KEYNOTE-671 study of perioperative pembrolizumab for patients with resectable early-stage non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Neoadjuvant pembrolizumab plus chemotherapy followed by resection and adjuvant pembrolizumab improved overall survival compared with neoadjuvant chemotherapy and resection alone in stage II, IIIA, or IIIB (N2) disease (Abstract LBA56).
