  • Overview

    The therapeutic landscape for the first-line treatment of non-driver metastatic NSCLC has become complex and, in some cases, controversial. Based on PD-L1 status, do you know which patients should receive immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI) monotherapy and when ICI should be combined with chemotherapy? Join Drs. Mark Socinski and Edward Garon as they focus on the intricacies associated with making these therapeutic choices, while also looking at future immunotherapeutic opportunities in the neoadjuvant and adjuvant settings.
