- The phase 3 PACIFIC trial established consolidation therapy with durvalumab as standard of care for patients with unresectable, stage III NSCLC and no disease progression after definitive chemoradiotherapy (CRT). The observational PACIFIC-R study assesses the real-world effectiveness of durvalumab in patients from an early access program. Here, we report treatment characteristics and a preplanned analysis of real-world progression-free survival (rwPFS).
- Approximately 10% of EGFR mutations (EGFRmuts) are uncommon (ucEGFRmuts). We aimed to collect real-world data about osimertinib for patients with ucEGFRmuts.
- In this issue of the Journal of Thoracic Oncology, Piccirillo et al.1 report the results of the BEVERLY trial, a randomized phase 3 study that reveals the progression-free survival (PFS) benefit of bevacizumab to erlotinib as first-line treatment for Italian patients with metastatic NSCLC with common EGFR mutations. In this large study, after a median follow-up of 36.3 months, median investigator-assessed PFS was 15.4 months with erlotinib plus bevacizumab and 9.6 months with erlotinib alone (hazard ratio = 0.66, 95% confidence interval: 0.47–0.92).
