Understanding Treatment Options and Resistance in EGFR-positive NSCLC

Unfortunately, the inevitability of therapeutic resistance is always looming for patients with EGFR-mutated lung cancer, regardless of PD-1/PD-L1 status. Dr. Karen Reckamp—together with Drs. Ibiaya Dagogo-Jack, Ticiana Leal, and Daniel Tan, as well as patient advocate Sarah Christ—talks through a patient case, exploring all facets of the care continuum for this population. Beginning with discussion of biomarker testing and next-generation sequencing and moving through various opinions on use of whole-brain radiation therapy, combination chemotherapy, first-/second-generation TKIs, and/or osimertinib (depending on region) to other still unidentified mechanisms of resistance to EGFR TKI treatment and ongoing trials looking at novel therapeutic strategies. The ultimate goals of prolonging progression-free survival in the frontline setting and having patients living longer and better lives are reinforced in this forum. Although the patient on the case went on to the ORCHARD trial, each expert weighs in with their individual considerations for potential care paths, based on region and on emerging data.
