Trilaciclib (COSELA™) is a transient inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases 4 and 6 (CDK 4/6) that is approved in the USA to decrease the incidence of chemotherapy-induced myelosuppression (CIM) when administered before a platinum/etoposide-containing regimen or topotecan-containing regimen in adults being treated for extensive-stage small cell lung cancer (ES-SCLC). It is the first approved therapy to provide myeloprotection, and when administered before chemotherapy, it is a valuable option for decreasing the incidence of CIM. In three clinical randomized trials, trilaciclib administration prior to standard-of-care chemotherapy for ES-SCLC reduced myelosuppression and the need for rescue interventions, improved patient-reported outcomes and the safety profile of the chemotherapy regimens, and had no impact on antitumor efficacy.
