Content will address management of locally advanced and metastatic lung cancer by using multidisciplinary and multimodality approaches. These include conventional chemotherapy and biomarker-driven therapy, including immune checkpoint inhibitors that target to unleash or enhance pre-existing anticancer immune responses. Examples of these immunotherapies target PD-1 antibodies, PD-L1 antibodies, and CTLA-4 antibodies. Genotype-driven therapy will be addressed by discussing agents that target genetic abnormalities, including but not limited to: EGFR, KRAS, and BRAF mutations and ALK and ROS1 translocations.
