Prof Byoung Chul Cho - Yonsei Cancer Center, Seoul, the Republic of Korea

Dr Cho speaks with ecancer at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about a phase I/II trial of lazertinib, a highly selective and irreversible investigational 3rd-generation EGFR-TKI.

He describes the activity of lazertinib in targeting EGFR mutations and T790M mutation, while sparing wild type, and that the drug penetrates the blood-brain barrier (BBB) which has led to marked response in brain metastases.

Across all evaluable patients, the overall response rate was 64%, and Dr Cho outlines further trial expansion and evaluation which will confirm any survival benefit.
