Immune checkpoint inhibitors continue to dominate the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and biomarker-based approaches are increasingly segmenting the space and providing new treatment options. In December 2022, Krazati became the second KRAS inhibitor to enter the U.S. market (after Lumakras). Enhertu, the first targeted therapy for previously treated HER2-mutant metastatic NSCLC, was approved in August 2022. In addition, in November 2022, the FDA approved the CTLA4 inhibitor Imjudo for use with Imfinzi and chemotherapy for certain metastatic NSCLC patients. These new entrants, against a backdrop of chemotherapies, immune checkpoint inhibitors, and existing biomarker-driven agents, provide medical oncologists with an ever-increasing array of treatment options.
