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).

Nadia Harbeck, MD, PhD, on High-Risk Early Breast Cancer: Overall Survival Data on Abemaciclib Plus Endocrine Therapy

Nadia Harbeck, MD, PhD, of Munich’s LMU University Hospital and the Ludwig Maximilian University, discusses an interim analysis of the monarchE trial on adjuvant abemaciclib plus endocrine therapy for patients with hormone receptor–positive, HER2-negative, high-risk early breast cancer. The data showed this regimen continued to reduce the risk of developing invasive and distant disease recurrence well beyond the completion of treatment. The improvement at 5 years is consistent with a carryover effect and further supports the use of the CDK4/6 inhibitor abemaciclib in this population (Abstract LBA17).
