Sequential afatinib and osimertinib in NSCLC patients

Written by Maximilian Hochmair

A recent publication from the Video Journal of Biomedicine summarizes an article originally published in Advances in Therapy entitled ‘Observational Study of Sequential Afatinib and Osimertinib in EGFR Mutation-Positive NSCLC: Patients Treated with a 40-mg Starting Dose of Afatinib’.

The study was a post-hoc non-interventional, global, multicenter GioTag study, assessing sequential afatinib and osimertinib in patients with EGFR mutation-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who had recieved the approved 40-mg starting dose of afatinib. The findings support the clinical benefit for sequential afatinib and osimertinib.

About the Video Journal of Biomedicine:

The Video Journal of Biomedicine, published by Future Medicine, provides the missing link between high-quality research information and its intended audience, be that fellow experts, researchers in other fields, students and trainees, or the general public (including patients and caregivers). Through concise, high-quality videos, with the author on screen or via voice-over animation, researchers are able to personally explain their work, highlighting its importance, placing it in context, and discussing future implications.
