Opdivo Plus Yervoy Approved for First-Line Treatment of Metastatic NSCLC

The FDA has approved the combination of Opdivo (nivolumab) plus Yervoy (ipilimumab) for the first-line treatment of adult patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors express PD-L1 (≥1%) as determined by an FDA-approved test, with no EGFR or ALK genomic tumor aberrations.

FDA Panel Votes on Ramucirumab for First-Line Treatment of Metastatic EGFR-Positive NSCLC

The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee voted 6 to 5 that ramucirumab (Cyramza; Lilly) plus erlotinib demonstrated a favorable benefit/risk profile for patients with untreated metastatic epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The vote was based on data from the phase 3 RELAY study (N=449), which evaluated…

Keytruda Approved for BCG-Unresponsive, High-Risk Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Keytruda (pembrolizumab; Merck) for the treatment of patients with Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG)-unresponsive, high-risk, non-muscle invasive bladder cancer with carcinoma in situ (CIS) with or without papillary tumors who are ineligible for or have elected not to undergo cystectomy.

First-Line Treatments for Advanced EGFR-Mutated NSCLC Compared

In patients with advanced epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-mutated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), treatment with osimertinib and gefitinib plus pemetrexed-based chemotherapy was found to be superior to other first-line therapies, according to a systematic review and network meta-analysis published in the BMJ. For this investigation, study authors searched various databases from inception through May…

Antibiotic Use May Impact PFS, Overall Survival in Lung Cancer Patients Treated With Pembrolizumab

In patients with naïve advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and high PD-LI expression who are treated with pembrolizumab, the use of intravenous (IV) antibiotics may negatively impact progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival, according to research presented at the IASLC 2019 World Conference on Lung Cancer. To evaluate the effect of antibiotics on…
