Experimental KRAS inhibitor adagrasib also shows activity against lung cancer that has spread to the brain.
Two-year follow-up showed that Lumakras prolonged treatment response and had a favorable safety profile.
A look back at some of the most important science and treatment news Cancer Health covered this year.
Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation scientists work to develop drugs for people with KRAS-driven cancers.
Targeted therapies are available for eight tumor mutations, highlighting the importance of genomic testing.
Lumakras (sotorasib) was granted accelerated approval for the treatment of advanced non-small-cell lung cancer.
Lumakras led to tumor shrinkage in 36% of NSCLC patients with KRAS G12C mutations.
The theme of this issue is the science underlying advances in cancer care and treatment.
More than 80% of lung cancer patients treated with the targeted therapy experienced remission or had stable disease.
The technology used in COVID-19 vaccines may also be used to prevent other viral infections and to treat cancer and multiple sclerosis.
Sotorasib and adagrasib target a specific cancer-causing mutation found in those with non-small-cell lung cancer and colorectal cancer.
Genomic testing can help customize treatment to target tumors.
Adagrasib targets a specific cancer-causing mutation, while VS-6766 interferes with multiple steps in a cell growth signaling pathway.
The drug also showed promise for colorectal and other cancers, but it might work better in combination regimens.
The study helps explain how cancer cells adapt and tolerate treatment and identify combination therapies to improve outcomes in people.
