Dr Pérol summarises the indications for atezolizumab, durvalumab and pembrolizumab in NSCLC, as well as the factors that should be considered when selecting between these agents, including performance status, need for rapid treatment, bulkiness of disease, toxicity and presence of liver/brain metastases.
