    Martin Reck compares the combination of novel immune checkpoint inhibitors with other drug classes to monotherapy in terms of efficacy and tolerability, discusses the role of biomarkers and the tumor microenvironment in terms of treatment decision and focuses on the potential predictive value of immune-related adverse events.


    David T. Cooke talks about health equity and health disparities relating to lung cancer management in the western world. He explains which factors based on ethnicity are likely to affect outcomes of lung cancer patients and how health disparities might be tackled in the long run at the public health level.


    Donald R. Harvey discusses lung cancer from the point of view of clinical pharmacology, targets in the area of antibody-drug conjugates, the role of proteolysis targeting chimeras (PROTACs) in the treatment landscape, highlights mechanisms of resistance to small molecule inhibitors and draws attention to clinical trial design to better meet the demands of modern drug development.

    Peter R. Galle overviews the role of immunotherapy in the setting of hepatocellular carcinoma as well as biomarker-based patient selection and discusses which novel combinations of immune checkpoint inhibitors with other drug classes are most promising at present and how those novel strategies impact the treatment landscape.


    Ferdinandos Skoulidis summarizes why the development of KRASG12C targeted therapies failed in the past, relates to new developments in the field of KRASG12C inhibition especially sotorasib and discusses the impact of co-mutations on personalized anticancer therapy.
