Amivantamab (amivantamab-vmjw; Rybrevant™), a bispecific monoclonal antibody targeting epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and mesenchymal epithelial transition factor (MET), is being developed by Janssen Biotech for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). On 21 May 2021, amivantamab received its first approval in the USA for the treatment of adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC harbouring EGFR Exon 20 insertion mutations whose disease has progressed on or after platinum-based chemotherapy. Amivantamab is in preregistration for NSCLC in the EU, Australia, Japan, Canada, Switzerland and China. This article summarizes the milestones in the development of amivantamab leading to this first approval for NSCLC.
