David H. Harpole, Jr, MD, of Duke University Medical Center, discusses further exploratory analyses of patients with EGFR-mutated resectable non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) enrolled in the phase III AEGEAN study. In this trial, perioperative durvalumab plus neoadjuvant chemotherapy, vs neoadjuvant chemotherapy alone, significantly improved event-free survival and pathologic complete response (Abstract OA12.06).

Chee K. Lee, PhD, MBBS, of the University of Sydney, discusses findings of the ILLUMINATE study, which showed durvalumab and tremelimumab with chemotherapy yielded antitumor activity in patients with non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors progressed after receiving EGFR inhibitors. This result was especially marked in those with EGFR T790M–negative tumors (Abstract OA09.04).

Seshiru Nakazawa, MD, PhD, of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, discusses activating the MET tyrosine kinase domain mutation, which has been identified as the sole oncogenic mutation in a small but significant subset of patients with non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). According to Dr. Nakazawa’s findings, this mutation is potentially targetable with currently available MET tyrosine kinase inhibitors.
