In an early-phase study involving patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), the response rate was better with nivolumab plus ipilimumab than with nivolumab monotherapy, particularly among patients with tumors that expressed programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1). Data are needed to assess the long-term benefit of nivolumab plus ipilimumab in patients with NSCLC.

Nivolumab plus ipilimumab versus chemotherapy as first-line treatment in advanced non-small-cell lung cancer with high tumour mutational burden: patient-reported outcomes results from the randomised, open-label, phase III CheckMate 227 trial.
In the phase III CheckMate 227 study, first-line nivolumab + ipilimumab significantly prolonged progression-free survival (co-primary end-point) versus chemotherapy in patients with advanced non-sma...
Immunotherapies such as the cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 inhibitor ipilimumab and the programmed cell death protein 1 inhibitor nivolumab have become ubiquitous in cancer treatment. Rec...

Nivolumab monotherapy is approved in the US for third-line or later metastatic SCLC based on pooled data from non-randomized and randomized cohorts of the multicenter, open-label, phase 1/2 trial of n...
In the recent years, immunotherapeutics and specifically immune-checkpoints inhibitors have marked a significant shift in the diagnostic and therapeutic algorithm of non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)...
The purpose of this study is to show that Nivolumab or Nivolumab plus ipilimumab, improves progression free survival and/or overall survival compared with chemotherapy in subjects advanced...
The investigators propose a trial to evaluate if the addition of ipilimumab to nivolumab after primary resistance to anti- programmed death 1 (PD-1) axis therapy can lead to objective radi...
This research study is studying two immunotherapy drugs as a possible treatment for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The drugs involved in this study are: - Ipilimum...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether Nivolumab in combination with Ipilimumab is associated with superior response rate compared to Nivolumab alone in patients with advanced E...
BIOLUMA is a multicentric non-randomised phase II trial in patients with non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (Cohort 1) and patients with small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) (Cohort ...
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
A quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.
A cell adhesion molecule that contains extracellular immunoglobulin V and C2 domains. It mediates homophilic and heterophilic cell-cell adhesion independently of calcium, and acts as a tumor suppressor in NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CANCER (NSCLC) cells. Its interaction with NATURAL KILLER CELLS is important for their cytotoxicity and its expression by MAST CELLS plays a role in their interaction with neurons; it may also function in synapse assembly, nerve growth and differentiation.

Lung cancer is the uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Originating in the lungs, this growth may invade adjacent tissues and infiltrate beyond the lungs. Lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, is respons...
