Prof Daniel Richard Gomez - University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA

Dr Gomez met with ecancertv at ASCO 2016 to discuss a phase II randomised study in which local consolidative therapy (LCT) was offered to patients with oligometastic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Dr Gomez reports that, based on the DSMC recommendation, the study was closed early due to the significant efficacy benefit observed in the study arm.

The median PFS time in the LCT arm reached 14.4 months (95% CI 5.2 months-NR), compared to 3.9 months (95% CI 2.2-6.6 months) in the no-LCT arm (HR = 0.36, p = 0.013).

With these results, he is looking towards data maturation from overall survival times, and patient surveillance continues.
