While the armamentarium of therapies for metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has evolved to include various targeted therapies and immunotherapeutic agents, combinations with optimal efficacy and tolerability remain to be elucidated. At the 8th Joint Scientific Meeting of the Royal College of Radiologists (RCR) and Hong Kong College of Radiologists (HKCR) and 27th Annual Scientific Meeting of HKCR, Professor Tai-Chung Lam of the Department of Clinical Oncology, the University of Hong Kong, discussed the use of immunotherapy-based combinations for the management of EGFR-mutated NSCLC, with an emphasis on the role of the anti–PD-L1 antibody, atezolizumab.

Acalabrutinib, used in combination with obinutuzumab or as monotherapy, improved progression-free survival (PFS) by 80–90 percent vs chlorambucil with obinutuzumab in patients with previously untreated chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) in the phase III ELEVATE TN trial. The results, presented at the American Society of Haematology 61st Annual Meeting & Exposition (ASH 2019) by Dr Jeff P. Sharman of the Willamette Valley Cancer Institute and Research Center in Eugene, Oregon, US, demonstrated consistent PFS benefit across patient subgroups as well as tolerability of acalabrutinib therapy.
