BACKGROUND This phase 2 trial (ClinicalTrials.gov identifier NCT00548093) assessed the efficacy, safety, and impact on health-related quality of life of dacomitinib (PF-00299804), an irreversible tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) of human epidermal growth factor receptors (EGFR)/HER1, HER2, and HER4, in patients with KRAS wild-type non-small cell lung cancer(More)
The targeting of oncogenic 'driver' kinases with small molecule inhibitors has proven to be a highly effective therapeutic strategy in selected non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. However, acquired resistance to targeted therapies invariably arises and is a major limitation to patient care. ROS1 fusion proteins are a recently described class of(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of this study was to determine whether the addition of ramucirumab to first-line paclitaxel-carboplatin chemotherapy in patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) resulted in a 6-month progression-free survival (PFS) rate that compares favorably with the historic rate for bevacizumab combined with(More)
Circulating tumour DNA (ctDNA) analysis facilitates studies of tumour heterogeneity. Here we employ CAPP-Seq ctDNA analysis to study resistance mechanisms in 43 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients treated with the third-generation epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor rociletinib. We observe multiple resistance mechanisms in 46% of(More)
OBJECTIVES The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and overall safety of sunitinib plus pemetrexed and carboplatin was determined in patients with advanced solid malignancies. METHODS In this phase I dose-escalation study, patients received oral sunitinib on a continuous daily dosing (CDD) schedule (37.5 mg/day) or Schedule 2/1 (2 weeks on treatment, 1 week off(More)
Previous work by Del Re et al. describing the emergence of KRAS mutations following treatment of non-small cell lung cancer patients with EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors was inadvertently omitted from the reference list of this Article and should have been cited as follows. The statement in the Results section 'While it is well established that KRAS(More)
