Key Messages

  • CADTH recommends that Rybrevant be reimbursed by public drug plans for the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with activating epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon 20 insertion mutations whose disease has progressed on or after platinum-based chemotherapy if certain conditions are met.
  • Rybrevant should only be covered to treat patients who have EGFR exon 20 insertion mutation–positive NSCLC that has spread to other parts of the body or cannot be removed by surgery, and who have already received treatment with a platinum-based chemotherapy. Patients receiving Rybrevant should be in relatively good health.
  • Rybrevant should only be reimbursed when it is used after platinum-based chemotherapy and if its cost is reduced. It should not be reimbursed if it is given in combination with other anticancer drugs. Rybrevant must be prescribed by specialists with experience managing NSCLC.
