iki Karachaliou Rafael Rosell Treatment of advanced (metastatic) non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is currently mainly based on immunotherapy with antibodies against PD-1 or PD-L1, alone, or in combination with chemotherapy. In locally advanced NSCLC and in early resected stages, immunotherapy is also employed. Tumor PD-L1 expression by immunohistochemistry is considered the standard practice. Response rate is low, with median progression free survival very short in the vast majority of studies reported. Herein, numerous biological facets of NSCLC are described involving driver genetic lesions, mutations ad fusions,...

z I, Martínez de Prado P, Porta I Balanyà R, Quintanar Verduguez T, Rodríguez-Lescure Á, Muñoz A Abstract BACKGROUND: The ever-growing complexity of cancer-associated thrombosis (CAT), with new antineoplastic drugs and anticoagulants, distinctive characteristics, and decisions with low levels of evidence, justifies this registry. METHOD: TESEO is a prospective registry promoted by the Spanish Society of Medical Oncology to which 34 centers contribute cases. It seeks to provide an epidemiological description of CAT in Spain. RESULTS: Participants (N=939) with CAT diagnos...

Semin Respir Crit Care Med 2020; 41: 400-408 DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1710077Traditionally, lung cancer has been treated as an immune-resistant disease with platinum-based chemotherapy serving as the first-line treatment for metastatic disease. The efficacy of immunotherapy has been established for patients with advanced lung cancer in clinical trials, and it has since become the standard of care for patients without targetable mutations, with or without chemotherapy. Previously, lung cancer patients experienced limited responses to immune-based therapy. As clinical trials continued to explore immunotherapy options with checkpo...

Abstract Chemotherapy and targeted therapy have significantly improved the progression of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but patients are inevitably suffering from drug resistance and relapse. With this background, the immunotherapy brings a turnaround for a subset of cancer patients. Over two decades, with the development of immunotherapy, immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) have made a breakthrough in NSCLC patients. ICIs targeting the programmed death 1 receptor (PD-1), programmed cell death receptor ligand 1 (PD-L1) and cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated antigen-4 (CTLA-4) showed significantly antitumor ef...

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is an aggressive malignancy characterized by rapid growth, early metastasis, and acquired therapeutic resistance. A majority of patients with SCLC have extensive-stage (ES) disease, defined as the presence of metastatic disease outside the hemithorax at first diagnosis. SCLC has been considered “a graveyard for drug development,” with chemotherapy remaining the standard treatment for first- and second-line management until quite recently. In contrast to NSCLC, identifying therapeutic targets in SCLC has been challenging, partly because driver mutations are primarily loss of functio...

ConclusionOur findings confirm pericardial effusion as a relatively frequent side effect of immunotherapy in NSCLC. Clinicians should be aware of this specific toxicity in patients with metastatic NSCLC receiving immunotherapy and refer to a cardiologist for a multidisciplinary approach.

Basel, 19 May 2020 – Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY) today announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Tecentriq® (atezolizumab) as a first-line (initial) treatment for adults with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumours have high PD-L1 expression (PD-L1 stained ≥ 50% of tumour cells [TC ≥ 50%] or PD-L1 stained tumour-infiltrating [IC] covering ≥ 10% of the tumour area [IC ≥ 10%]), as determined by an FDA-approved test, with no EGFR or ALK genomic tumour aberrations.“We are pleased to offer people with certain types of lung cancer a new chemothera...

240Purpose: Reliable predictive and prognostic markers are still lacking for patients treated with immunotherapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The purpose of this study was to investigate the prognostic and predictive values of different baseline metabolic parameters, including whole-body metabolic tumor volume (wMTV), from 18F-FDG PET/CT scans in patients with NSCLC treated with immunotherapy. Methods: Maximum and peak standardized uptake values, wMTV and total lesion glycolysis (wTLG) as well as clinical and biological parameters, were recorded in 75 prospectively included patients with NSCLC treated with immun...

Abstract Lung cancer is currently the highest morbidity and mortality malignancy all over the world. In the past, the treatment options available for patients with lung cancer were mainly chemotherapy and tyrosine kinase inhibitors, but after a period of treatment, cancer cells inevitably developed resistance. With the elucidation of the immune escape mechanism of tumor cells recently, immunotherapy, especially immune checkpoint inhibitors, has shown unparalleled advantages in cancer treatment, becoming a new hope for cancer patients after multi-line treatment failure. Immune checkpoint inhibitors usually belong t...

Conclusions: 18F-FDG PET/CT performed before the start of immunotherapy might be an important prognostic tool able to predict the disease progression and response to immunotherapy in patients with advanced NSCLC, since MTV, TLG and radiomics features (volume and heterogeneity) are associated with disease progression.
