Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology, Published online: 20 September 2019; doi:10.1038/s41571-019-0277-2In the past few years, efforts have been made to combine two approaches — immune-checkpoint inhibition and locally ablative radiation therapy — to treat patients with metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer. Herein we discuss the implications of two studies that support the existence of a systemic therapy augmented by radiotherapy (STAR) effect in this setting.

CONCLUSIONS: The combination of TMB and CNA can jointly stratify multiple metastatic tumors into groups with different prognosis and heterogenous clinical responses to ICI treatment. Patients with TMBhighCNAlow cancer can be an optimal subgroup for ICI therapy. PMID: 31515453 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionThis study demonstrates that neoantigen-specific T cells can be detected in peripheral blood in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients during anti-PD-L1 therapy. Patients with an objective response had an enrichment of neoantigen-reactive T cells and these cells showed a phenotype that differed from patients without a response. These findings suggest the ex vivo identification, characterization, and longitudinal follow-up of rare tumor-specific differentiated effector neoantigen-specific T cells may be useful in predicting response to checkpoint blockade.Trial registrationPOPLAR trialNCT01903993.

AbstractPatients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and renal cell carcinoma (RCC) have shown benefit from anti-PD-1 therapies. However, not all patients experience tumor shrinkage, durable responses or prolonged survival, demonstrating the need to find response markers. In blood samples from NSCLC and RCC patients obtained before and after anti-PD-1 treatment, we studied leukocytes by complete blood cell count, lymphocyte subsets using flow cytometry and plasma concentration of nine soluble mediators, in order to find predictive biomarkers of response and to study changes produced after anti-PD-1 therapy. In baseline...

CONCLUSION: Real-world aNSCLC treatment costs are often inconsistent with the NCCN ARs. Given that NCCN Evidence Blocks are intended to inform provider-patient discussions and other decision support resources, such as the NCCN Categories of Preference, our results suggest that the NCCN ARs require further refinement and validation.

ConclusionsAn enhancement of PD-L1 antibody by niclosamide was observed in inhibition of NSCLC growth in vitro and in vivo, which was involved in blockage of p-STAT3 binding to promoter of PD-L1 and finally downregulation of PD-L1 expression. These encourage the combination therapy of niclosamide and PD-1/PD-L1 blockade to be further studied in clinic.
