The data may result in another option for patients in the crowded first-line ALK-positive lung cancer market, though progression-free survival data are not yet mature.

The drug developer will submit a new drug application with the FDA based on the Phase III study results presented at a medical conference last week.

The German drugmaker plans to advance the NSCLC treatment in parallel with tissue-based and liquid biopsy companion assays that can identify best responders.

The study combined large-scale protein post-translational modification datasets with protein-protein interaction data to profile cell signaling in lung cancer.

The changes include recommendations for first line immunotherapy in patients with high PD-L1 expression, and clarification on use of targeted therapies.
