FDA Approves First-Line Ramucirumab Plus Erlotinib for Metastatic EGFR-Mutated NSCLC - The ASCO Post


On May 29, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved ramucirumab (Cyramza, injection, 10 mg/mL solution) in combination with erlotinib for the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon 19 deletions or exon 21 (L858R) mutations. Ramucirumab plus erlotinib is the first and only FDA-approved anti–vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) receptor/EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor combination therapy for metastatic EGFR-mutated NSCLC. This approval is based on efficacy and safety data from the global, randomized, placebo-controlled phase III RELAY trial.

FDA Approves Frontline Ramucirumab/Erlotinib for EGFR+ mNSCLC


The FDA has approved ramucirumab (Cyramza) in combination with erlotinib (Tarceva) for the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) harboring EGFR exon 19 deletions or exon 21 (L858R) mutations, according to a press release from Eli Lilly.1 This marks the only anti–VEGFR/EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor combination regimen approved by the FDA for the treatment of patients with EGFR-mutant metastatic NSCLC. "The approval of this new first-line metastatic EGFR-mutated non–small cell lung cancer regimen, which inhibits the VEGFR and EGFR pathways together, is an important milestone in the treatment of this disease.

Adjuvant osimertinib ‘practice changing’ for early-stage EGFR-mutated NSCLC


medwireNews: Patients with stage IB–IIIA non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) harboring EGFR mutations derive a significant disease-free survival (DFS) benefit from adjuvant treatment with osimertinib, shows the phase 3 ADAURA trial. The third-generation EGFR–tyrosine kinase inhibitor was associated with a significant 79% reduction in the risk for relapse or death relative to placebo in these patients, reported Roy Herbst, from the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut, USA, at the virtual 2020 ASCO Annual Meeting.

FDA Approves Ramucirumab Plus Erlotinib for Frontline EGFR+ NSCLC


At a median follow-up of 20.7 months, the investigator-assessed median progression-free survival (PFS) with the ramucirumab regimen versus erlotinib alone was 19.4 months (95% CI, 15.4-21.6) versus 12.4 months (95% CI, 11.0-13.5), respectively (HR, 0.59; 95% CI, 0.46-0.76; P <.0001). The FDA has approved the combination of ramucirumab (Cyramza) and erlotinib (Tarceva) as a frontline treatment for patients with metastatic non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors harbor EGFR exon 19 deletions (Ex19del) or exon 21 (L858R) substitution mutations.

First-Line Pembrolizumab Plus Etoposide/Platinum for Extensive-Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer - The ASCO Post


As reported at the ASCO20 Virtual Scientific Program by Charles M. Rudin, MD, PhD, and colleagues (Abstract 9001), the phase III KEYNOTE-604 trial has shown that first-line pembrolizumab plus etoposide/platinum significantly prolonged progression-free survival and prolonged overall survival at a near significant level vs placebo plus etoposide/platinum in patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer (SCLC). The findings were simultaneously published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. In the double-blind trial, 453 patients were randomly assigned to receive pembrolizumab at 200 mg every 3 weeks (n = 228) or placebo (n = 225) for up to 35 cycles, plus 4 cycles of standard-dose etoposide/platinum, with platinum treatment consisting ...

Patients With No Prior Therapy for Advanced Squamous NSCLC Respond to Tislelizumab Combo


Statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival (PFS) was seen with tislelizumab (BGB-A317) plus chemotherapy versus chemotherapy alone in Chinese patients with untreated advanced squamous non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), according to findings from the phase 3 BGB-A317-307 trial. These data were presented as part of the 2020 American Society of Clinical Oncology Virtual Scientific Program.1 The median PFS per Independent Review Committee (IRC) was 7.6 months when combining the anti–PD-1 agent tislelizumab with paclitaxel and carboplatin versus 5.5 months in the control arm of paclitaxel and carboplatin alone (HR, 0.524; 95% CI, 0.370-0.742; P = .0001).

Third- and Further-line Therapy in Advanced NSCLC Patients


Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treatment has led to improved efficacy and compliance due to individual tailoring of the therapeutic options and the use of strategies based on both clinical characteristics and histological and biological features of the disease. In nonsquamous NSCLC, novel agents, such as pemetrexed and bevacizumab, have improved survival in the first-line setting. Maintenance therapy with pemetrexed and erlotinib resulted in improved progression-free survival compared with second-line therapy at disease progression.

Silent witness: unseen Buster Keaton sketches underline his comic genius


Buster Keaton, king of the silent movie, death-defying stuntsman and one of Hollywood’s greatest comedians, was also a great believer in the art of improvisation. “As a rule, about 50% you have in your mind when you start the picture and the rest you develop as you’re making it,” he once told an interviewer. Now, however, two previously unpublished sketches have come to light in which Keaton appears to undermine his commitment to making it up as he goes along, with jokes mapped out in minute and colourful detail. Alek Lev, vice president of the International Buster Keaton Society, likened the papers to a “holy relic”, telling the Observer: “We have the honour of preserving laughs that Buster wrote for the world but didn’t get a chance to ...

AXL/MET dual inhibitor, CB469, has activity in non-small cell lung cancer with acquired resistance to EGFR TKI with AXL or MET activation


In non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with epidermal growth factor receptor ( EGFR) mutations, acquired resistance to EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs) may occur via bypass signals such as AXL or MET activation. We investigated the antitumor activity of CB469, a newly developed drug that targets both AXL and MET, in EGFR TKI-resistant NSCLC cells. We generated EGFR TKI-resistant NSCLC cell lines with acquired resistance to erlotinib, gefitinib, and osimertinib (PC9/ER, HCC827/GR and HCC827/OR, respectively).

The novel long non-coding RNA LATS2-AS1-001 inhibits gastric cancer progression by regulating the LATS2/YAP1 signaling pathway via binding to EZH2


Abstract To explore the expression pattern and role of the novel long non-coding RNA LATS2 antisense transcript 1 (LATS2-AS1-001) in gastric cancer (GC). qRT-PCR was applied to evaluate LATS2-AS1-001 expression and correlation with LATS2 in GC. In vitro experiments were performed to investigate the role of LATS2-AS1-001 in GC cells. RNA immunoprecipitation (RIP) was performed to assess the interaction between EZH2 and LATS2-AS1-001. LATS2/YAP1 signaling pathway proteins were detected by immunoblot.

Cancer remains the world’s second leading cause of death and the top killer in some high-income countries. Scientists at the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson want to intercept cancerous tissue before it becomes a serious threat. While there have been significant advances in treating advanced malignancy, even these new treatments fail to stop certain cancers after they grow and spread. The five-year survival rates for metastasized bladder and colorectal cancer, for example, are 5 and 15%, respectively.
