We are joined by Niels Reinmuth (Asklepios Kliniken Munich-Gauting) at ESMO 2019 to discuss his presentation on PD-L1 expression in primary tumours versus metastatic samples in the phase III MYSTIC study in first-line metastatic NSCLC.
1. Could you tell us a little about the MYSTIC study and its major findings? (00:07)
2. What was the relationship between programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression and the efficacy of durvalumab? (00:50)
3. How did the expression of PD-L1 differ between primary tumour and metastatic samples? (01:30)
4. What are the implications of these findings for clinical practice? (01:51)
Filmed at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress 2019, Barcelona, Spain.
Speaker disclosure: Neils Reinmuth disclosed a relevant relationship with AstraZeneca.

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 […]
