J&J Innovative Medicine covers the following therapeutic areas: cardiovascular, metabolism & retina, immunology, infectious diseases, neuroscience, oncology, as well as pulmonary hypertension.

Earlier this week on 11 September, while still known as Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, the firm announced that RYBREVANT® (amivantamab-vmjw) and Lazertinib plus chemotherapy provided a median progression-free survival (PFS) rate of 14 months in previously treated EGFR-mutated advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

The combination of RYBREVANT and lazertinib with chemotherapy demonstrated an objective response rate of 50 percent, according to data presented at International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) 2023 World Congress on Lung Cancer (WCLC).

Follow-up results from the Phase Ib/II CHRYSALIS-2 study cohort evaluated the safety and tolerability of the combination of RYBREVANT, a bispecific antibody targeting epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and mesenchymal-epithelial transition (MET), with lazertinib, an oral third-generation EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), plus platinum-based chemotherapy (carboplatin and pemetrexed) in relapsed/refractory (NSCLC) and EGFR mutations.
