Nearly 8 months Overall Survival in LUX-Lung 81,13

In advanced SqCC of the lung progressing after platinum-based chemotherapy*

Overall survival; George

  • Estimates of survival were all significantly better with GILOTRIF vs erlotinib at13:
    – 6 months (63.6% [95% CI, 58.6–68.2] vs 54.6% [49.5–59.4]; P=0.0099)
    – 12 months (36.4% [95% CI, 31.6–41.2] vs 28.2% [23.8–32.9]; P=0.0155)
    – 18 months (22.0% [95% CI, 17.6–26.7] vs 14.4% [10.7–18.6]; P=0.0132)
  • Median PFS: 2.4 months with GILOTRIF vs 1.9 months with erlotinib (HR=0.82 [95% CI, 0.68–0.99];P=0.0427)

51% disease control rate for GILOTRIF vs. erlotinib in LUX-Lung 813

51% disease control rate

Stay ahead of your metastatic SqCC NSCLC patients.

For patients like George, consider the only FDA-approved oral option, GILOTRIF, after progression on platinum-based chemotherapy1,13

Indications and usage

  • GILOTRIF (afatinib) tablets is indicated for the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors have non-resistant epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations as detected by an FDA-approved test.

    Limitation of Use: Safety and efficacy of GILOTRIF have not been established in patients whose tumors have resistant EGFR mutations.

  • GILOTRIF is indicated for the treatment of patients with metastatic squamous NSCLC progressing after platinum-based chemotherapy.
