LBA51 - KEYNOTE-024 5-year OS update: First-line (1L) pembrolizumab (pembro) vs platinum-based chemotherapy (chemo) in patients (pts) with metastatic NSCLC and PD-L1 tumour proportion score (TPS) ≥50%

The abstract concludes: Pembro continues to show improvements in OS vs chemo as 1L treatment for metastatic NSCLC with PD-L1 TPS ≥50%. Despite the high crossover rate, 5-year OS was approximately doubled among pts who received pembro (31.9% vs 16.3%). Fewer pts who received pembro experienced grade 3−5 AEs vs those who received chemo. Long-term OS and durable responses were observed with pembro monotherapy.

 

LBA52 - EMPOWER-Lung 1: Phase III first-line (1L) cemiplimab monotherapy vs platinum-doublet chemotherapy (chemo) in advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with programmed cell death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) ≥50%

The abstract concludes: In this study, 1L cemiplimab monotherapy significantly improved OS and PFS vs chemo in pts with advanced NSCLC with PD-L1 ≥50%, despite high CO rate, providing rationale for cemiplimab as a new treatment option for this patient population.

 

LBA53 - Precision immuno-oncology for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients (pts) treated with PD1/L1 immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs): A first analysis of the PIONeeR study

The abstract concludes: Immune cells quantification and characterization add value to clinical factors to predict advanced NSCLC response/resistance to ICIs.

 

LBA54 - Randomized phase III trial of nivolumab in combination with carboplatin, paclitaxel, and bevacizumab as first-line treatment for patients with advanced or recurrent non-squamous NSCLC

The abstract concludes: ONO-4538-52/TASUKI-52 met the primary endpoint; nivolumab in combination with carboplatin, paclitaxel, and bevacizumab significantly prolonged PFS with a manageable safety profile.

 

LBA55 - WJOG @Be study: A phase II study of atezolizumab (atez) with bevacizumab (bev) for non-squamous (sq) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with high PD-L1 expression

The abstract concludes: This positive result supports Atez with Bev as a potential treatment option for non-Sq NSCLC with high PD-L1 expression.
