News, views, and coverage of important topics and discussions from oncology conferences and events.

Every year, researchers and clinicians report on exciting advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. In 2021, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, developments in the management of lung cancer continue to be important and intriguing.
In patients with non–small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that involves the central nervous system and who lack genetic rearrangements or tumor targets, DM-CHOC-PEN, a bis-alkylator of DNA, has produced long-term objective responses with manageable toxicities.
Therapeutic outcomes based on plasma-based comprehensive genomic profiling are comparable to published tissue-based targeted therapy clinical outcomes in non–small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
Overall survival is longer for patients with advanced non–small-cell lung cancer who received atezolizumab and had immune-related adverse events versus patients who received atezolizumab and did not have immune-related adverse events.
Chemotherapy plus immunotherapy (IO) may improve efficacy outcomes over IO alone in most patients with advanced non–small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) scores between 1% and 49%.
With 2 years’ minimum follow-up, first-line use of nivolumab, ipilimumab, and chemotherapy offers durable survival relative to chemotherapy alone in patients with advanced non–small-cell lung cancer.
Aumolertinib, a novel EGFR inhibitor, shows prolonged clinical benefit in a randomized comparison with gefitinib as first-line therapy in advanced non–small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with EGFR exon 19 del or L858R mutation.
Rates of comprehensive biomarker testing and clinical trial participation were significantly lower for black patients with advanced non–small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in the United States compared with white patients.
As a marker of homologous recombination deficiency, genomic loss of heterozygosity does not predict efficacy of rucaparib in advanced non–small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
Capmatinib offers deep and durable responses with a manageable toxicity for patients with MET exon 14–mutated advanced profile non–small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) regardless of line of therapy.
