OA23.06 - Overall Survival (OS) of EGFR Mutation Positive Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Patients: Real-World Treatment Patterns of 1,660 Japanese Patients (ID 5915)
14:20 - 15:50 | Author(s): T. Kumagai
Since the epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (EGFR-TKI) was launched in Japan, the survival periods of advanced/recurrent EGFR mutation positive (EGFR m+) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients have been getting longer. However, clinical factors which contributed to the extension of survival periods of these patients remain unclear. We investigated overall survival, prognostic factors and treatments patterns of EGFR m+ NSCLC patients in real-world clinical practice.
This is a multi-center, observational, retrospective study. Histologically or cytologically diagnosed EGFR m+ NSCLC patients who were started first-line treatment from 1/1/2008 to 31/12/2012 were enrolled. The primary objective was the estimated OS. The secondary objectives were to determine prognostic factors, real-world treatment patterns.
1,660 EGFR m+ NSCLC patients were enrolled from 17 hospitals in Japan (median age 67.0 years, female 64.8%, 38.9% had smoking history, ECOG-performance status 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 were 39.5%, 41.1%, 7.1%, 4.9%, 0.7%, respectively, adenocarcinoma 95.2%, 50.1% exon 19 deletion, 66.7% at stage IV). Median estimated OS was 29.7 months. Cox regression analysis revealed age, smoking history, performance status, histological diagnosis, EGFR mutation type and clinical stage were independently associated with OS. Five year survival rate of stage IV patients was 13.8%. The median number of treatment regimens was two. EGFR-TKI and platinum-doublet chemotherapy were most frequently used as first- and second-line treatments.
Real world treatment of the large data-set of 1,660 EGFR m+ NSCLC patients was retrospectively investigated. Median OS was 29.7 months and EGFR-TKIs are major components of the treatment regimens for these patients in Japan. (NCT0247520)
