Abstract

Refers to Kelly, K. et al. Adjuvant erlotinib versus placebo in patients with stage IB-IIIA non-small cell lung cancer (RADIANT): a randomized, double-blind, phase III trial. J. Clin. Oncol.http://dx.doi.org/10.1200/JCO.2015.61.8918

In the RADIANT study, no difference in disease-free survival was observed for patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with erlotinib versus placebo in the adjuvant setting. Further biomarker studies are awaited to determine whether patients with NSCLC can benefit from adjuvant therapy with tyrosine kinase inhibitors.
