- Plan treatment strategies for patients with NSCLC and disease progression on or after platinum-containing chemotherapy based on available data, treatment guidelines, and expert recommendations
- Compare immune checkpoint inhibitors as second-line therapy for patients with metastatic NSCLC
- Evaluate the therapeutic impact of PD-1 inhibition as first-line treatment of patients with advanced NSCLC and high PD-L1 expression
- Identify patients with advanced NSCLC who may benefit from immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy
- Manage immune-related adverse events in patients with advanced NSCLC on checkpoint inhibitor therapy
