Prof Anna Nowak - The University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia

Dr Nowak speaks with ecancer at the 2018 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting about the results from the DREAM trial comparing durvalumab as a first line treatment for mesothelioma patients compared to platinum-based chemotherapy.

She outlines the current patient cohort and treatment schedules for the study arms, and notes the impact of durvalumab on patients progression free survival at 6 months.

Dr Nowak also discusses the toxicity profile of frontline durvalumab, with 3 grade 3 events and 4 non-trial related deaths.
