Xiuning Le, MD, PhD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses results of the VISION trial, the largest on-treatment liquid biopsy biomarker data set of a MET inhibitor in patients with MET exon 14 non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Tepotinib showed durable efficacy in this population.

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).

Yasir Y. Elamin, MD, of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses findings from the BRIGHTSTAR study, in which brigatinib with local consolidative therapy was found to be safe in patients with ALK-rearranged advanced non–small cell lung cancer. This regimen yielded promising outcomes when compared with historical outcomes with brigatinib alone (Abstract OA22.04).

Ticiana A. Leal, MD, of Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University, discusses phase III findings from the LUNAR study of tumor treating fields (electric fields that disrupt cellular processes and lead to cell death) combined with the standard of care in patients with metastatic non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) after relapse on platinum treatment. The survival benefit of this regimen was especially profound in patients with tumor PD-L1 expression who received an immune checkpoint inhibitor as the standard of care, according to Dr. Leal (Abstract OA22.05).

Shirish M. Gadgeel, MD, of the Henry Ford Cancer Institute, discusses a 5-year follow-up study of patients with metastatic non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who were treated with pembrolizumab plus chemotherapy. According to Dr. Gadgeel, the findings continue to support the use of pembrolizumab plus chemotherapy as a standard-of-care first-line treatment, including in tumors with a PD-L1 tumor proportion scores of less than 1%.
