Sunvozertinib Shows Promise in Treating Pretreated EGFR+ Lung Cancer

Updates on Cancer Treatment: Latest Studies and Findings

Sunvozertinib: A New Oral Agent for EGFR-Mutated Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Recent studies have explored the use of sunvozertinib, a novel oral agent for the treatment of EGFR-mutated non–small cell lung cancer. The phase 2 study showed that sunvozertinib shrank tumors in over half of the patients (54.3%) who had previously been treated with chemotherapy. Responses were seen in patients with brain tumors as well. Treatment-emergent adverse effects were manageable, with diarrhea, rash, and muscle enzyme increase being the most common.

According to Xiaolin Zhang, PhD, the drug has several clear advantages compared to other treatments and is an oral single agent, making it a more tolerable option for patients. The study is ongoing to confirm the long-term benefits and safety of sunvozertinib.

Amivantamab Plus Chemotherapy for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

The FDA recently approved amivantamab plus chemotherapy as a first-line treatment for patients with EGFR exon 20 insertion mutation-positive non-small cell lung cancer. In this treatment, amivantamab is combined with chemotherapy for increased efficacy.

Joshua K. Sabari, MD, discussed the FDA approval in a recent episode of Targeted Talks and explained that this combination offers a promising new option for patients with this type of lung cancer.

Treatment Regimen BOVen for Older Patients with Mantle Cell Lymphoma

A recent study showed that a treatment regimen called BOVen was safe and effective in producing responses in older patients with mantle cell lymphoma. This is promising news, as mantle cell lymphoma is a rare and often aggressive form of lymphoma that typically affects older individuals.

The Evolving Treatment Landscape for EGFR Exon 20–Mutated Lung Cancer

In season 2, episode 1 of Targeted Talks, Nagashree Seetharamu, MD, led a conversation with Luis E. Raez, MD, about the evolving treatment landscape for EGFR exon 20–mutated lung cancer. They discussed the latest developments in treatment options and the potential for new therapies to emerge in the near future.

Acalabrutinib and Zanubrutinib for CLL/SLL Patients

In a recent study, acalabrutinib and zanubrutinib showed longer median TTD and TTNT compared to ibrutinib in CLL/SLL patients. Additionally, cardiovascular adverse effects were less frequent with acalabrutinib and zanubrutinib than with ibrutinib.

Ide-cel for High-Risk Multiple Myeloma

A cohort study of the KarMMa-2 trial discovered durable responses in patients with high-risk multiple myeloma treated with ide-cel. This is promising news for those with this type of blood cancer, as high-risk multiple myeloma can be difficult to treat and manage.
