      Background

      It has been confirmed that epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs) presented better efficacy than brain radiotherapy (brain RT) in the treatment of brain metastasis (BM) in EGFR mutated NSCLC patients. However, whether the combination of EGFR-TKI and brain RT is better than EGFR-TKI alone remains unclear. We aim to compare the benefit of adding brain RT to EGFR-TKI by a meta-analysis of currently available data.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      A systematic search for relevant articles was conducted in six databases (PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane database, Medline, Web of Science, Google scholar). The primary outcome was overall survival (OS) between groups, and the secondary outcome was intra-cranial progression-free survival (icPFS), both being measured as hazard ratios (HRs). The data was synthesized by random-effects model using STATA 13.0.

      A total of four retrospective studies involving 507 EGFR mutated patients with BM at the first diagnosis were included, 209 patients received brain RT (predominantly whole brain RT). Combined therapy of EGFR-TKI and brain RT reduced 19% risk of deaths (OS HR=0.81, 95% CI 0.53-1.26; P=0.36) and 16% risk of intracranial progression (icPFS HR=0.84, 95% CI 0.55-1.27; P=0.40) compared with EGFR-TKI alone, however, no statistically significance was observed. Further subgroup analyses suggested that patients with 21 exon L858R mutation were more inclined to have greater icPFS benefit under combination therapy (HR 0.67, 95% CI 0.19-2.40) in contrast to 19 exon deletion patients (HR 1.35, 95% CI 0.88-2.09). In addition, patients older than 65 (HR 0.74, 95% CI 0.37-1.48) might benefit more from combination than those younger than 65 (HR 4.47, 95%CI 0.29-70.13).

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      This meta-analysis suggested that the combination of EGFR-TKIs and brain radiotherapy showed similar but potentially better OS and intracrnial control in EGFR-mutated NSCLC patients when compared to EGFR-TKI alone, especially for those with L858R mutations or older than 65. The current results underscore the importance of future randomized control trials and provide information for study design.

      P1.15-17 - Risk Factors of Local Recurrence in EGFR-Mutant Stage III-pN2 Adenocarcinoma After Complete Resection: A Multi-Center Real-World Cohort Study (ID 12740)

      16:45 - 18:00  |  Author(s): Minzhang Guo

      • Abstract

      Background

      Postoperative radiotherapy (PORT) of complete resected stage IIIA non-small cell lung cancer with N2 nodal involvement remained contentious. Our previous study suggested low locoregional recurrences in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutant patients. We sought to launch a multi-center large cohort study to evaluate the risk factors of locoregional recurrence in R0 resected EGFR mutant III-pN2 patients without PORT, producing evidence for the design of adjuvant regimens.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      Three-hundred and fifty-nine consecutive patients with complete resected, pathological approved stage III-pN2 lung adenocarcinoma with sensitive EGFR mutation (exon 19 or exon 21) have been investigated. Patients were excluded if they received induction therapy (7.5%) or PORT (9.6%). Three hundred cases have been analyzed. Clinicopathologic characteristics, pretreatment work-ups, EGFR mutant status and patterns of failure were documented. Patients were sub-staged by the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC)/ the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) 7th classification on N2 disease. Risk factors of locoregional recurrence-free survival (LRFS) were evaluated by univariate and multivariate analyses.

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      According to IASLC/UICC 7th classification, there were 198 (66.0%) patients with unforeseen N2 (N2a), 36 (12.0%) with minimal/single station N2 (N2b), 41 (13.7%) with selectively centrally located N2 (N2c) and 25 (8.3%) with bulky and/or multilevel N2 (N2d). After surgery, 70 (23.3%) patients were treated with adjuvant tyrosine-kinase inhibitors (TKIs), while other 230 (76.7%) were free from adjuvant TKIs. With median follow-up of 28.5 (rangeļ¼š6-133) months, the 2-year LRFS, distant metastasis-free survival (DMFS), disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS) were 88.3%, 65.3%, 57.7% and 89.7%. Ultimately, 15.7% (47/300) patients developed locoregional recurrences. Distant metastasis was the predominant failure pattern. Multivariate analysis indicated that N2d disease (HR: 2.65, p=0.030) and extranodal extension (HR: 3.48, p<0.001) were risk factors of LRFS.

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      R0 resected stage III-pN2 NSCLC patients with sensitive EGFR mutation (exon 19 or exon 21) tended to present limited N2 disease and low locoregional recurrences. Patients without bulky N2, multilevel N2, and extranodal extension might be refrained from PORT. Further studies evaluating the optimal radiotherapy approach for completely resected N2-positive NSCLC are required for validation.
