Core Tip This review article addresses the role of maintenance therapy in the treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Maintenance therapy utilization in NSCLC patient population and review of current guidelines for maintenance therapy are discussed. A treatment algorithm was created to depict first line and second line treatment for managing NSCLC and includes molecular testing, maintenance therapy, and the role of clinical trials in the treatment of NSCLC. A comprehensive review of the achieved clinical benefit that maintenance therapy may or may not have on the NSCLC patient population is presented.
