Management of Targeted Therapies: PD1 in lung cancer

By Richard Gralla, recorded at TAO (Transatlantic Oncology meeting), Nov 20-21, 2014, Paris

32 - Richard Gralla ANG

In his presentation, Richard Gralla reviews new approaches to treating non-small-cell lung cancer and puts the PD-1 pathway into context. Nowadays, there are at least three distinct treatment strategies: chemotherapy, genetic abnormalities such as mutations or rearrangements and immune checkpoint inhibition. Outcomes differ, for example, according to smoking status and gender. Newer pathways have the potential to identify individual patients likely to respond to treatment. However, chemotherapy remains the largest contributor to survival benefit for the whole population.
