Summary: This study evaluated the antitumor activity of a combination of imatinib mesylate (IM) and gemcitabine (GEM) in platinum-pemetrexed-pretreated malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) patients expressing PDGFR-? and/or cKIT by immunohistochemistry (IHC).
Summary: This study identified characteristics associated with disease-specific survival (DSS), time-to-treatment failure (TTF), objective responses (OR) and progressive disease (PD) in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with nivolumab.
Summary: This study assessed the outcome of malignant pleural mesothelioma patients treated with extra-pleural pneumonectomy (EPP) and adjuvant radiotherapy (RT), using the most advanced radiotherapeutic techniques, namely image-guided intensity-modulated RT (IG-IMRT).
