FDA Approves New Lung Cancer Diagnostic "Cobas EGFR Mutation Test"
Source: Cancer / Oncology News From Medical News Today [2013.05.15]
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the cobas EGFR Mutation Test, a companion diagnostic for the cancer drug Tarceva (erlotinib). This is the first FDA-approved companion diagnostic that detects epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene mutations, which are present in approximately 10 percent of non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC)...

WASHINGTON (MedPage Today) -- The FDA has approved a companion EGFR mutation test for use with the targeted cancer drug erlotinib (Tarceva) to help guide decision making in non-small cell lung cancer.
Lung Cancer Survival Improved By Chemo, Radiation, Then Surgery
Source: Lung Cancer News From Medical News Today [2013.05.02]
In one of the largest observational studies of its kind, researchers report that a combination of chemotherapy and radiation followed by surgery in patients with stage 3 non-small cell lung cancer improves survival. Patients who had chemoradiation therapy followed by surgery had twice the five-year survival rate of those who had only chemoradiation, says Dr...
Published Studies Related to Navelbine (Vinorelbine)
Docetaxel vs. vinorelbine in elderly patients with advanced non--small-cell lung cancer: a hellenic oncology research group randomized phase III study. [2011.05]
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: This study compared front-line treatment with docetaxel or vinorelbine in elderly patients with advanced/metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC)... CONCLUSIONS: Docetaxel has an efficacy comparable to that of vinorelbine as first-line treatment in elderly patients with NSCLC and has an acceptable toxicity profile. The trial was closed prematurely because of low accrual, thus limiting the strength of the conclusions derived. Copyright (c) 2011. Published by Elsevier Inc.
A multicenter prospective phase II randomized trial of epirubicin/vinorelbine versus pegylated liposomal doxorubicin/vinorelbine as first-line treatment in advanced breast cancer. A GOIM study. [2011.04.12]
BACKGROUND: To evaluate activity and tolerability of two anthracycline-containing regimens as first-line treatment for anthracycline-naive relapsed breast cancer patients... CONCLUSIONS: Both anthracycline- containing regimens evaluated in the present study seem to be active and with a satisfactory tolerability in anthracycline-naive relapsed breast cancer patients.
Paclitaxel and gemcitabine versus paclitaxel and vinorelbine in patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer. A phase III study of the Hellenic Cooperative Oncology Group (HeCOG). [2011.04]
BACKGROUND: Paclitaxel (Taxol) and vinorelbine have shown synergism of cytotoxic effects in vitro and clinical activity in phase I and II studies. This combination was compared prospectively with the paclitaxel/gemcitabine regimen in non-operable non-small-cell lung cancer... CONCLUSION: Although response rate, PFS and survival were non-different in both groups, toxicity was significantly worse in group B and therefore further investigation of P-Vin is of no value.

Randomised phase II trial of gemcitabine plus vinorelbine vs gemcitabine plus cisplatin vs gemcitabine plus capecitabine in patients with pretreated metastatic breast cancer. [2011.03.29]
BACKGROUND: An increasing proportion of patients are exposed to anthracyclines and/or taxanes in the adjuvant or neoadjuvant setting. Re-exposure in the metastatic stage is limited by drug resistance, thus evaluation of non-cross-resistant regimens is mandatory... CONCLUSIONS: This randomised phase II trial has revealed comparable results for three gemcitabine-based regimens regarding treatment efficacy and toxicity. Gemcitabine-based chemotherapy appears to be a worthwhile treatment option for pretreated patients with metastatic breast cancer.
Second-line paclitaxel/carboplatin versus vinorelbine/carboplatin in patients who have advanced non-small-cell lung cancer pretreated with non-platinum-based chemotherapy: a multicenter randomized phase II study. [2011.03]
PURPOSE: This study evaluates the activity and toxicity of the paclitaxel/carboplatin (PC) doublet versus vinorelbine/carboplatin (VC) doublet as second-line treatment in patients who have advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC)... CONCLUSIONS: Platinum-based doublets with either paclitaxel or vinorelbine in patients with advanced/metastatic NSCLC pretreated with front-line docetaxel/gemcitabine show comparable efficacy when used in the second-line setting.
