Cancer Australia launches Lung Cancer Framework

Immune therapy combined with chemo helped extend lung cancer patients’ lives in clinical studies Immune therapy combined with chemo helped extend lung cancer patients’ lives in clinical studies

A separate study by Johns Hopkins University and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre tested the immunotherapy drug, nivolumab, on 21 patients about to have surgery for non-small-cell lung cancer.

The combined use of standard chemotherapy with pembrolizumab was "superior in terms of response - keeping people alive without progression of their cancer - and improving the overall survival of patients with metastatic lung cancer compared to chemotherapy alone", said Gandhi.

In one, scientists at New York University conducted a study involving more than 600 patients with advanced lung cancer.

Results of the study are expected to change how 70,000 patients are treated each year in the United States whose lung cancer has already spread by the time it is found, according to AP.

Unlike traditional treatment, immunotherapies encourage the body's natural defences to target and destroy cancer cells, new research has revealed. Many times, they give it after chemotherapy has failed. Chemotherapy has limitations. Immunotherapy has the ability to cure.

The study, a phase III clinical trial testing treatment effectiveness and side effects, included 616 patients at 118 medical facilities around the globe.

They cost more than $100,000 a year, can have serious side effects and help only some patients, generally fewer than half.

The findings should change medical practice immediately, cancer experts say: Patients with this type of lung cancer should receive an immune-activating drug, also called immunotherapy, as early as possible after the diagnosis is made.

Pembrolizumab, sold under the brand name Keytruda, is an FDA-approved drug sold by a subsidiary of Merck & Company, Inc. that sponsored this study.

But the benefits for Opdivo and Yervoy lasted less than two months on average.

The estimated survival rate after 12 months for those that just received chemotherapy was 49.4 percent - in other words, just under half of those patients survived for a year.
