Lung cancer affects about 228,000 people a year in the US and has a five-year survival rate just shy of 20 percent, according to the National Cancer Institute.

This webinar will discuss a study that set to assess the efficacy and safety of osimertinib in EGFR T790M positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients identified by using plasma sample and cobas EGFR Mutation test v2. This is the first prospective study to use liquid biopsy upfront to evaluate osimertinib efficacy.

Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with ALK rearrangements are treated with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), which often leads to prolonged overall survival. However, treatment resistance will almost inevitably occur, and the disease remains incurable.
