Hossein Borghaei, DO, on Bispecific T-Cell–Engager Immune Therapy for Small Cell Lung Cancer
IASLC 2020 World Conference on Lung Cancer in Singapore
Hossein Borghaei, DO, of Fox Chase Cancer Center, discusses phase I results from a study of AMG 757, an experimental bispecific T-cell–engager (BiTE) immune therapy aimed at the DLL3 molecular target in patients with small cell lung cancer. At this early stage, results show clinical efficacy and safety, with 37% of 51 evaluable patients exhibiting disease control (Abstract OA11.03).
Justin F. Gainor, MD, of Massachusetts General Hospital, discusses two key phase II studies on non–small cell lung cancer: nivolumab vs nivolumab plus ipilimumab in EGFR-mutant disease and the oral selective AXL inhibitor bemcentinib with pembrolizumab in advanced disease (Abstracts OA01.06 and OA01.07).
Prasad S. Adusumilli, MD, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discusses ongoing CAR T-cell therapy clinical trials for solid tumors, the key determinants of success for developing this treatment, and some study results to date (Abstract PL03.05).
Fred R. Hirsch, MD, PhD, of Mount Sinai Medical Center, discusses Lung-MAP studies in which a higher tumor mutation burden determined by next-generation sequencing was linked to overall and progression-free survival across two immunotherapy trials, and was independent of PD-L1 status (Abstract OA01.04).
Martin Reck, MD, PhD, of the LungenClinic, discusses the results from KEYNOTE-799, which explored a new strategy to increase the intensity of treatment in patients with unresectable, locally advanced, stage III non–small cell lung cancer (Abstract OA02.03).
Martin Reck, MD, PhD, of LungenClinic, discusses results from the IMpower133 study of carboplatin plus etoposide with or without atezolizumab in patients with untreated extensive-stage small cell lung cancer (Abstract OA11.06).
