Prof Jean-Louis Pujol - CHRU de Montpellier, Hôpital Arnaud de Villeneuve, Montpellier, France

Prof Jean-Louis Pujol peaks with ecancer at ESMO 2018 in Munich about the study into the use of anti–PD-L1 atezolizumab or chemotherapy as second-line therapy in patients with small cell lung cancer.

Prof Pujol explains that they found that only 1 patient out of 49 in the atezolizumab group had a response at 6 weeks.

He states that the progression-free survival differed significantly in the two groups in favour of the chemotherapy, and the difference in overall survival was not tangible.

For more in SCLC, Dr Noemi Reguart gave her conference highlights here.
