The implementation of the Affordable Care Act, which increased insurance coverage, was associated with an increase in the diagnosis of several screenable cancers at an earlier stage.

Adjuvant gefitinib significantly prolonged time to recurrence compared with the standard of care for patients with NSCLC with EGFR-activating mutations.

The TKI brigatinib offered good response rates in a phase II trial of patients with ALK-positive non–small-cell lung cancer whose disease progressed on crizotinib.

A Web-based application allows for earlier detection of relapse among patients with advanced lung cancer, improving survival by 7 months.

Post-treatment CT surveillance does not offer better survival rates vs clinical symptoms evaluation for tumor recurrence in locally advanced non–small-cell lung cancer.

Testing for T790M mutations with plasma and urine assays can complement testing done from biopsy tissue in patients with EGFR TKI-resistant NSCLC.

Elderly patients with stage III non–small-cell lung cancer experience poorer overall survival than patients younger than age 70 years when treated with standard concurrent chemoradiotherapy, according to a pooled analysis.
