Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Understanding

Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC): Overview
Lung cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the lungs. Cancer starts when cells in the body begin to grow out of control. About 80% to 85% of lung cancers are Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. The main subtypes of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer are adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and large cell carcinoma. These subtypes, which start from different types of lung cells are grouped together as Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer because their treatment and prognoses (outlook) are often similar.
The three main histological subtypes of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer are:
• Adenocarcinoma: About 40% of all lung cancers are adenocarcinomas. These tumors start in mucus-producing cells that line the airways.
• Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC): About 25-30% of all lung cancers are Squamous cell carcinoma. This type of cancer develops in cells that line the airways and is usually caused by smoking.
• Large cell (undifferentiated) carcinoma: This type makes up around 10-15% of all lung cancers. It gets its name from the way that the cancer cells look when they are examined under a microscope.
Immune checkpoint inhibitors
An important part of the immune system is its ability to keep itself from attacking normal cells in the body. To do this, it uses “checkpoint” proteins on immune cells, which act like switches that need to be turned on (or off) to start an immune response. Cancer cells sometimes use these checkpoints to avoid being attacked by the immune system. Drugs that target these checkpoints (called checkpoint inhibitors) can be used to treat some people with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Immunotherapies targeted against programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) and its receptor (PD-1) have improved survival in a subset of patients with advanced lung cancer.
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)
Epidermal growth factor receptor is a trans-membrane glycoprotein with an extracellular epidermal growth factor binding domain and an intracellular tyrosine kinase domain that regulates signaling pathways to control cellular proliferation. Epidermal growth factor receptor binding to its ligand results in autophosphorylation by intrinsic tyrosine/kinase activity, triggering several signal transduction cascades. Constitutive or sustained activation of these sequences of downstream targets is thought to yield more aggressive tumor phenotypes. Mutations in epidermal growth factor receptor have been discovered in association with some lung cancers.
EGFR function and its role in lung cancer
EGFR belongs to the erbB family of closely related receptor tyrosine kinases, which include erbB1 (also known as EGFR), erbB2 (HER2), erbB3, and erbB4. Although their basic structures are similar, each one has distinct properties, including variation in tyrosine kinase activity. It has an extracellular ligand binding domain, a transmembrane portion, and intracellular tyrosine kinase and regulatory domains. Upon binding of a specific ligand (eg. epidermal growth factor), the normally functioning EGFR undergoes conformational change and phosphorylation of the intracellular domain occurs, leading to downstream signal transduction by various pathways. These include the Raf1-extracellular signal-regulated kinase, PI3K/Akt, and signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) factors. Depending on the pathway, the end result is cell proliferation or cell maintenance by inhibition of apoptosis.
EGFR inhibitors
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a protein on the surface of cells. It normally helps the cells grow and divide. Some Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer cells have too much EGFR, which makes them grow faster. Drugs called EGFR inhibitors can block the signal from EGFR that tells the cells to grow. Some of these drugs can be used to treat advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.
EGFR inhibitors used in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer with EGFR gene mutations
• Erlotinib (Tarceva)
• Afatinib (Gilotrif)
• Gefitinib (Iressa)
• Osimertinib (Tagrisso)
• Dacomitinib (Vizimpro)
These drugs are often used alone (without chemo) as the first treatment for advanced NSCLCs that have certain mutations in the EGFR gene. Erlotinib can also be used along with a targeted drug that affects new blood vessel growth (see above). EGFR gene mutations are more common in women, Asians, and non-smokers (or light smokers).
EGFR Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the EGFR Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

EGFR Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Emerging Drugs
• DZD9008: Dizal Pharmaceuticals
DZD9008 is an oral, potent, irreversible, wild type-selective EGFR TKI against EGFR or HER2 Exon20ins and other mutations. The present study shows anti-tumor activity of DZD9008 in tumor cell lines and xenograft models. Dizal Pharmaceuticals is conducting a phase I/II, open-label, multicenter study to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and anti-tumor efficacy of DZD9008 in patients with advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) with EGFR or HER2 mutation. This study includes dose escalation (Part A) and dose expansion (Part B). This study will treat patients with advanced NSCLC with EGFR or HER2 mutation who have progressed following prior therapy. This is the first time this drug is tested in patients, and so it will help to understand what type of side effects may occur with the drug treatment. It will also measure the levels of drug in the body and preliminarily assess its anti-cancer activity as monotherapy.
• Nazartinib (EGF816) - Novartis Pharmaceuticals
EGF816 is an orally available, irreversible, third-generation, mutant-selective epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor, with potential antineoplastic activity. Upon oral administration, EGF816 covalently binds to and inhibits the activity of mutant forms of EGFR, including the T790M EGFR mutant, thereby preventing EGFR-mediated signaling. This may both induce cell death and inhibit tumor growth in EGFR-overexpressing tumor cells. EGFR, a receptor tyrosine kinase mutated in many tumor cell types, plays a key role in tumor cell proliferation and tumor vascularization.
Novartis is conducting a phase I/II, multicenter, open-label study of EGFRmut-TKI EGF816, administered orally in adult patients with EGFRmut solid malignancies. This study will estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or recommended phase II dose (RP2D) (Phase l part) of EGF816 and to investigate the anti-tumor activity of EGF816 (Phase II part).
