Reportedly, early trial data on Amgen Inc’s (AMGN) Lumakras was released by the World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC), but it has been decided that it will hold until Aug. 7 by the meeting organizers from a highly anticipated study in combination with drugs that help the immune system attack cancer.
The study will report on how well Lumakras work in combination with immunotherapies, Merck & Co’s Keytruda and Roche Holding AG’s Tecentriq were selected to be part of the press program at the organization’s Vienna meeting, informed WCLC spokesman Chris Martin.
Lumakras, an oral drug is designed to target a mutated form of a gene known as KRAS that occurs in about 13% of non-small cell lung cancers which is the most common type of lung cancer. Last year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Lumakras for advanced lung cancer patients with KRAS mutations whose condition has worsened after chemotherapy or medicines. Amgen is focused to expand approved uses for Lumakras, including in combination with other therapies to treat people with early-stage lung cancer.
