Emerging Treatment Options in the Management of Resistance to Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors in Non–Small Cell Lung Cancer

Targeted therapies and immune checkpoint inhibitors have transformed the treatment landscape for non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have contributed to an overall decline in lung cancer–related mortality, and as they move into the early-stage setting, more dramatic improvements in outcomes are expected. However, combatting TKI resistance in NSCLC is largely an unmet challenge. Tissue next-generation sequencing and plasma circulating tumor DNA–based assays have emerged as concurrent methods to identify targetable mechanisms of resistance to TKIs at the time of clinical progression, while antibody-drug conjugates represent a promising therapeutic class for the treatment of TKI-resistant NSCLC.
