Noemi Reguart, ESMO 2019 – EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors in NSCLC
Following her presentation at the ESMO 2019, Dr Noemi Reguart (University of Barcelona) discusses where epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) fit into the treatment of squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
1. What are the limitations of the current standard of care for squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)? (0:04)
2. How prevalent is the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation in squamous NSCLC and in which patient groups is it most commonly found? (5:08)
3. What evidence supports the use of EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) in EGFR-mutated squamous NSCLC? (7:36)
4. How can acquired resistance to EGFR TKIs be managed in patients with squamous NSCLC? (10:01)
5. What are the key take home messages of your presentation? (11:09)
Filmed at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress 2019, Barcelona, Spain.

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 […]
