The phase III multinational, multicenter study of “Improvement in Overall Survival in a Randomized Study That Compared Dacomitinib With Gefitinib in Patients With Advanced Non–Small-Cell Lung Cancer and EGFR-Activating Mutations” shows dacomitinib to significantly improve overall survival. Results recommending the second-generation drug be considered as one of the standard treatment options were presented at the recent ASCO Annual Meeting in Chicago (J Clin Oncol. 2018 Jun 4:JCO2018787994. doi: 10.1200/JCO.2018.78.7994. [Epub ahead of print]).
