The understanding of genetic alterations that drive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is evolving. As many of these molecularly-defined subtypes are potentially actionable, new strategies in molecular diagnostics and targeted therapies in NSCLC to detect and treat them are being explored. At the International Association for Study of Lung Cancer 19th World Conference, several abstracts and oral presentations related to this topic. In this report, we discuss some of these updates.
This commentary highlights the article by Blidner et al that describes a novel assay for detection of chimeric RNAs from gene fusions and exon-skipping events in nonâ€"small-cell lung cancer.
The treatment of advanced non-small-cell lung cancer shifted with the development of molecular-targeted therapies, like the tyrosine kinase inhibitors. One example of tyrosine kinase inhibitors is crizotinib, an anaplastic lymphoma tyrosine kinase inhibitor, which targets an echinoderm microtubule-associated protein-like-4-anaplastic lymphoma kinase gene fusion. This mutation is found in only 2% to 7% of non-small-cell lung cancer cases. Although these new therapies have shown promising results, the occu...
Despite their remarkable efficacy in metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), EGFR- and ALK-targeted therapies have not been shown to confer any survival benefit in stage III disease, even in subsets of patients with driver mutations.
The potentially curative and/or palliative therapy for non-resectable lung cancer has evolved significantly over the past two decades. With the availability of targeted therapies the need for precise sub-typing of the non-small cell lung carcinoma (NCSLC) has become paramount.
The most common primary cancers that metastasize to the brain are lung cancer, breast cancer, and melanoma. The established management approaches for brain metastasis include stereotactic radiosurgery, fractionated radiation therapy, and surgical resection. In the past the role of medical therapies in brain metastases was limited. In the last decade, our understanding of molecular drivers of brain metastases and CNS penetration of drugs across the blood-brain barrier has improved. The molecular targeted tyr...
Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway is known to be involved in the tumorigenesis of cancer cells including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and kinases involved in this pathway are frequently mutated. The development of new targeted therapies in cancer has led to the evaluation of MEK-inhibitors. Areas covered: This article reviews different studies using trametinib alone, in combination with other targeted therapies or associated with other non-targeted therapies in NSCLC, with a focus on KRA...
Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer-related deaths despite recent breakthroughs in immunotherapy. The widely embraced cancer stem cell (CSC) theory has also been applied for lung cancer, postulating that an often small proportion of tumor cells with stem cell properties are responsible for tumor growth, therapeutic resistance and metastasis. The identification of these CSCs and underlying molecular maintenance mechanisms is considered to be absolutely necessary for developing therapies for their...
p38 MAPK signaling molecules plays a dual role in cancer, both progression and suppression. Elevated expression of p38α was reported in lung cancer tissue in rat model. Our objective was to explore the concentration of all 4 isoforms of p38MAPK in serum of Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).
Complete resection of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) offers the potential for cure after surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy. Patients may not benefit and may experience severe toxicity. There are no validated molecular tools to allow better patient selection.
The relationships between morbid obesity, changes in body mass index (BMI) prior to cancer diagnosis, and lung cancer outcomes by histology (small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) and non-SCLC (NSCLC)) have not been well studied.
To provide mutational analysis and targeted therapy for Chinese patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLCs).
Targeted therapies have been proven to provide clinical benefits to patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Gefitinib was initially approved and reimbursed as a third-line therapy for patients with advanced NSCLC by the Taiwan National Health Insurance (NHI) in 2004; subsequently it became a second-line therapy (in 2007) and further a first-line therapy (in 2011) for patients with epidermal growth factor receptor mutation-positive advanced NSCLC. Another targeted therapy, erlotinib, was...
The LKB1 tumor suppressor gene is commonly inactivated in non-small cell lung carcinomas (NSCLC), a major form of lung cancer. Targeted therapies for LKB1-inactivated lung cancer are currently unavailable. Identification of critical signaling components downstream of LKB1 inactivation has the potential to uncover rational therapeutic targets. Here we investigated the role of INSL4, a member of the insulin/IGF/relaxin superfamily, in LKB1-inactivated NSCLCs.
Circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) holds great promise as a noninvasive diagnostic tool to guide treatment for patients with lung cancer. Two studies by Phallen and colleagues and Anagnostou and colleagues correlated sensitive measures of ctDNA with clinical responses to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) and immune checkpoint inhibitors, respectively, in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Together, these studies further highlight the potential clinical utility of serial ctDNA monitoring in patients...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and lung cancer are linked diseases, with both the incidence of and risk of death from non-small cell lung cancer being increased by the presence of COPD. Despite numerous well-performed epidemiological studies having described this link over the past 30 years, the operative mechanisms remain elusive. One of the major obstacles to advancement in the field has been the lack of patient cohorts that have been phenotyped for both COPD and lung cancer. This review dis...
Despite adoption of molecular biomarkers in the management of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), the recently adopted 8 Edition staging utilized only clinicopathologic characteristics, and validated improvement in risk stratification of early-stage disease remains elusive. We therefore evaluated the integration of a clinically-validated molecular prognostic classifier into conventional staging.
Cancer-specific antigens expressed in the cell membrane have been used as targets for several molecular targeted strategies in recent years with remarkable success. To develop more effective cancer treatments, novel targets and strategies for targeted therapies are needed. Here, we examined the cancer cell membrane-resident "cis-bimolecular complex" as a possible cancer target (cis-bimolecular cancer target: BiCAT) using proximity proteomics, a technique that has attracted attention in recent years. BiCATs ...
To detect the protein level of Decorin in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients, and to study the mechanism of Decorin inhibiting invasion and metastasis of non-small cell lung cancer from the perspective of in vitro cells, and provide some theoretical support for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer.
Lycorine is a kind of natural alkaloid with anti-cancer potential. It has been demonstrated that lycorine processes high activity and specificity against the progression of cancers. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms by which lycorine regulates the formation and development of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remain largely unknown.
Small cell lung cancer remains an aggressive, deadly cancer with only modest effect on survival from standard chemotherapy. However, with the advent of immunotherapy and comprehensive genomic and transcriptomic profiling, multiple new targets are showing promise in the clinical arena, and just recently PD-L1 inhibition has been shown to improve the efficacy of standard chemotherapy in extended disease SCLC. Our increasing understanding of the interactions between different pathways will enable more tailored...
KRAS mutation (KRASm) is the most frequent molecular alteration found in advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), is associated with a poor prognosis, without available targeted therapy. Treatment options for NSCLC have been recently enriched by the development of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI), and data about its efficacy in patients with KRASm NSCLC are discordant. This study assessed the routine efficacy of ICI in advanced KRASm NSCLC.
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States and worldwide. While most patients present with advanced metastatic disease for which a cure is elusive, increased use of spiral CT screening has led to identification of more early-stage patients who can be treated. At the same time, immunotherapy and new targeted therapies have improved survival in advanced disease. These new therapies are now being studied in the neoadjuvant and adjuvant settings to reduce systemic recurrences and impr...
While most small cell lung cancer (SCLC) patients die within a few months of diagnosis, a sub-group of patients survive for many years. Factors determining long-term survivorship remain largely unknown. We present the first comprehensive comparative genomic and tumor microenvironment analyses of small cell lung cancer (SCLC) between patients with long term (LTS) and expected (EXS) survival times.
Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is an exceptionally lethal malignancy for which more effective therapies are urgently needed. Several lines of evidence, from SCLC primary human tumours, patient-derived xenografts, cancer cell lines and genetically engineered mouse models, appear to be converging on a new model of SCLC subtypes defined by differential expression of four key transcription regulators: achaete-scute homologue 1 (ASCL1; also known as ASH1), neurogenic differentiation factor 1 (NeuroD1), yes-associ...
