Follow-up results from the phase Ib/II CHRYSALIS-2 study cohort evaluating the safety and tolerability of the combination of Rybrevant (amivantamab-vmjw)—a bispecific antibody targeting epidermal growth factor receptor and mesenchymal-epithelial transition—with lazertinib, an oral third-generation EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor, plus platinum-based chemotherapy (carboplatin and pemetrexed) in patients with relapsed/refractory non-small cell lung cancer and EGFR mutations, showed that the drug combination led to durable progression-free survival. 
Patient-reported outcomes data from the phase III NATALEE trial, presented at the European Society for Medical Oncology Virtual Plenary, show that a broad population of patients with stage 2 and 3 hormone receptor-positive/human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative early breast cancer maintained health-related quality of life during treatment with Kisqali (ribociclib) plus endocrine therapy.
