Molecular testing is important to selecting patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who may benefit from targeted therapy or immunotherapy. touchONCOLOGY spoke to Professor Fred Hirsch (The Mount Sinai Hospital, New York City, NY, USA) to discuss his presentation at the European Lung Cancer Congress 2022, providing an update on the current state of personalized medicine and molecular testing in lung cancer.
- How well has molecular testing been implemented into clinical practice? 00:24-04:15
- What challenges and unmet needs remain? 04:15-07:20
Speaker Disclosure: Fred Hirsch is a member of the advisory board for: Amgen, AstraZeneca/Daiichi,Bristol-Myers, Novartis, NextCure, Novocure, Nectin Therapeutics, Sanofi/Regeneron and OncoCyteSquibb.

First-line immunotherapy is a standard treatment for patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer. Prof. Gerard Zalcman (Bichat Hospital, Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris; Institute of Cancer AP-HP Nord, Paris, France) joins touchONCOLOGY to discuss the IFCT-1701 phase III trial, investigating nivolumab plus ipilimumab, aiming to assess if 6-months nivolumab/ipilimumab duration was equivalent to continuation until progression […]
Charles Swanton, ESMO 2022: Mechanism of action and an actionable inflammatory axis for air pollution may induce NSCLC in never-smokers
The mechanistic basis for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) initiation in never smokers is unknown. The air pollutant, particulate matter, is known to be associated with the risk of NSCLC, however a direct cause and mechanism remains difficult to achieve. Prof. Charles Swanton (Francis Crick Institute, London, UK) joins touchONCOLOGY to discuss his study into […]
