Five-year results of a single-institution study show that proton beam radiotherapy given concurrently with chemotherapy offers promising clinical outcomes with good toxicity results compared with historical data.

A phase III trial failed to demonstrate superiority of eribulin over treatment of physician’s choice in patients with heavily pretreated non–small-cell lung cancer.

Once-daily RT given concurrently with chemotherapy showed no difference in survival compared with the twice-daily standard in small-cell lung cancer.

Holocaust survivors have a small but consistent increase in the risk of developing cancer, in particular colorectal and lung cancers.

Proton-beam therapy was found to be safe for patients with limited-stage small-cell lung cancer in the first prospective registry study of the therapy, with only a small number of high-grade toxicities.

Nivolumab did not extend progression-free survival over chemotherapy in the first-line setting in patients with PD-L1–positive advanced non–small-cell lung cancer, according to results of an open-label phase III trial.
