An Introduction to Lung Cancer
In some Western countries, the frequency and mortality of lung cancer are decreasing due to decades of public education and tobacco control policies, even though it still remains a major cause of mortality worldwide. Expert video highlights, insights from the conference hub and comprehensive peer-reviewed articles from our journal portfolio provide updates on the ever-changing landscape.

Amivantamab: A Potent Novel EGFR/c-MET Bispecific Antibody Therapy for EGFR-mutated Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
touchREVIEWS in Oncology & Haematology. 2021;17(1):Online ahead of journal publication
Cancer treatment has expanded rapidly in recent years as advancements in the fields of tumour biology and molecular diagnostics have informed the development of targeted therapies, improving survival in patients with oncogene-addicted cancers with therapeutically relevant molecular lesions. Osimertinib has become the standard-of-care treatment in the USA and elsewhere for classical epidermal growth factor receptor […]
Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors in the Treatment of Patients with Non-small Cell Lung Cancer of Squamous Histology: Focus on Afatinib
touchREVIEWS in Oncology & Haematology. 2021;17(1): Online ahead of journal publication
The treatment of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has seen significant advances in the past decade, with the availability of multiple targeted therapy agents for oncogenic-driven non-squamous NSCLC and the advent of immunotherapy that has completely revolutionized the treatment of patients without oncogenic drivers. Consequently, the lives of patients with NSCLC have significantly […]
Targeting IL-1β in NSCLC: What does the future hold?

- Discuss the use of checkpoint inhibitors as immunotherapy for NSCLC and recognize their limitations
- Recall the rationale for targeting IL-1β in cancer immunotherapy and the IL-1β-targeted agents currently in clinical development for solid tumours
- Describe the clinical trials and data for IL-1β-targeting agents in NSCLC and consider how they may be used in clinical practice if approved
A moving target: Assessing the role of EGFR-TKIs in early-stage NSCLC
Dr Stephen Liu presents the latest data and future directions of targeted therapy within the rapidly evolving treatment landscape for patients with early-stage NSCLC.
- Recall the latest efficacy and safety data for EGFR-TKIs for patients with early-stage EGFR-mutant NSCLC

- Evaluate the efficacy and safety data for emerging ADCs in solid tumours
- Discuss how emerging ADCs may be incorporated into the treatment paradigm for patients with solid tumours
- Summarise novel ADCs and the ongoing clinical trials in patients with solid tumours
MET Exon 14 Skipping Alterations in NSCLC: Current Understanding and Therapeutic Advances
Oncology & Hematology Review (US). 100-10 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/OHR.2021.16.2.100
Advanced non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) treatment paradigms have evolved during the past decade. Identification of tumor-specific molecular alteration in cancer driver genes has led to the development of targeted therapies.1–3 Most of the tumors harboring such alterations are sensitive to tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) drugs, making such oncogenic drivers promising targets for the development of […]
Radiation-induced Esophagitis in Lung Cancer—A Common Problem with Limited Therapeutic Options
Oncology & Hematology Review. 2020;16(2): 95-99 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/OHR.2021.16.2.95
Radiation-induced esophagitis, caused by incidental damage to the mucosal lining of the esophagus during radiation therapy, is a common and clinically important toxicity in patients with lung cancer. Esophagitis generally develops 2–3 weeks after initiation of radiation therapy and presents as pain and dysphagia, which can negatively impact patient quality of life.1 Severe esophagitis requires parenteral […]
