Drs. Jack West and Greg Riely field questions about which treatments should EGFR lung cancer patients consider when their cancers progress.
Acquired resistance in EGFR patients is often driven by the T790M mutation. T790M-positive tumors respond differently to treatments than T790M-negative tumors. Dr. Greg Riely details how each status can predict patients' responses to current treatments.
Dr. West moderates a question & answer session with Drs. Leora Horn and Greg Riely on issues of acquired resistance to targeted therapies for patients with advanced NSCLC that harbors a driver mutation.
Dr. Greg Riely from Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center reviews the limited data that help clarify the probability of benefit from new immunotherapy agents among patients with advanced NSCLC and an identified driver mutation.
Guest post by Dr. Cathy Pietanza, a board-certified medical oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. She specializes in cancers that arise in the lungs and cares for a large number of patients with small cell lung cancer (SCLC).
MSKCC medical oncologist Dr. Greg Riely reviews the optimal first line treatment of patients with an EGFR mutation-positive advanced lung cancer.
Dr. Greg Riely, medical oncologist from MSKCC, discusses the controversial question of whether patients should continue on an oral EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor after progression.
MSKCC medical oncologist Dr. Greg Riely explains the growing value of a repeat biopsy after the development of acquired resistance in patients with an EGFR mutation.
Medical oncologist Dr. Greg Riely, MSKCC, summarizes the development of acquired resistance after a good initial response to EGFR inhibitor therapy and the clinical patterns of progression commonly seen.
Are There Distinctions Among Currently Available Oral EGFR Inhibitors for EGFR Mutation-Positive NSCLC?
Dr. Greg Riely, medical oncologist from MSKCC, considers the evidence on whether there are clinically significant differences among the currently available first and second generation oral EGFR inhibitors for patients with an EGFR mutation.
