About The Study: The findings of this study provide reassurance that for patients with advanced non–small cell lung cancer whose disease is still responding to immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy at two years, stopping therapy and monitoring rather than continuing immunotherapy indefinitely is a reasonable strategy with sustained clinical benefit. 

Authors: Lova Sun, M.D., M.S.C.E., of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, is the corresponding author.
