The term "EGFR-positive lung cancer” is no longer adequate or specific enough to characterize this complex molecular subtype of lung cancer. Increased granularity is needed both in biomarker testing and targeted treatment selection for patients with different types of EGFR mutations. A growing number of new agents and combinations have become available for patients with common (eg, exon 19 deletion, exon 21 L858R) and uncommon (eg, exon 20 insertions) EGFR mutations, and more are on the horizon, requiring a precision approach. Watch PeerView’s latest educational video, based on a recent live symposium, and learn to better navigate biomarker-driven, individualized therapy for patients with EGFR-mutated NSCLC. Experts analyze the expanding evidence base and provide actionable, case-based guidance for improving testing, interpretation of results, and therapeutic decision-making for patients with NSCLC across a variety of EGFR mutations. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Review the different types of EGFR mutations and their role as therapeutic targets in NSCLC, including in earlier disease stages; Collaborate with the multidisciplinary team to promote widespread biomarker testing in patients with NSCLC, select appropriate tests to detect common and less common EGFR mutations, and ensure accurate interpretation of results to guide targeted therapy selection; Apply current evidence and guidelines to individualize targeted therapy for patients with EGFR-mutated NSCLC based on EGFR mutation type and patient needs, values, and preferences; and Communicate with the multidisciplinary team and with patients to promote rapid detection and management of treatment-related adverse events in patients receiving EGFR-targeted therapies for NSCLC.
