  • Overview

    The clinical value of adding immunotherapy together with chemoradiation in locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has been evident since 2017. This concept has been extended through the emergence of key clinical trials, such as KEYNOTE-799, which includes both squamous and non-squamous subsets. In fact, the coalescence of chemoradiation and immunotherapy has begun to not only push up overall survival, but to also improve cure rates with manageable toxicity. But as the landscape rapidly changes, it becomes increasingly difficult to link evolving data to clinical practice. Join Drs. Mark Socinski and Kristin Higgins as they parse the key trials and offer insights that will help you provide better care, and possibly more hope, for your patients with locally advanced NSCLC.
