On August 17, 2021, the FDA accelerated the approval of Jemperli (dostarlimab-gxly; from GlaxoSmithKline) injection, an immunotherapy and a PD-1 inhibitor, for the treatment of all adults with recurrent (coming back) or advanced mismatch repair-deficient (dMMR) solid tumors, including lung cancer, that progressed during or after systemic therapy and for whom there are no satisfactory alternative treatment options.
Immunotherapy Beneficial in Patients with Early-Stage Non–Small-Cell Lung Cancer and PD-L1 Expression

For the first time, the use of immunotherapy after surgical removal of the tumor and chemotherapy has shown benefits in patients with early-stage non–small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and PD-L1 expression, a biomarker found in some patients with NSCLC.
In this special issue focused on immunotherapy, we take a deep dive into this exciting type of treatment, highlighting the role of genetic testing and new developments in lung, skin, and bladder cancer in improving patient outcomes.
