Dr Wen-Zhao Zhong - Guangdong General Hospital & Guangdong Academy of Medical Sciences, Guangzhou, China

Dr Zhong speaks with ecancer at ESMO 2018 in Munich about the results of the CTONG 1103 trial of erlotinib versus gemcitabine plus cisplatin as a neoadjuvant treatment for patients with stage IIIA-N2 non-small cell lung cancer whose tumours have an EGFR mutation.

Dr Zhong outlines the challenge of the heterogeneity within these tumours, and the opportunity for neoadjuvant therapies within current treatment schedules.

The ORR, PFS data and tolerability support the use of erlotinib in this indication, and Dr Zhong discusses how a phase III study could place these findings alongside other treatment options for NSCLC, including immunotherapy.
