      There is a lack of consensus on the choice of first-line therapy for stage IIIB EGFR-mutated lung adenocarcinoma.

      A prospectively maintained database at the Shanghai Chest Hospital was used to identify patients who received therapy for stage IIIB EGFR-mutated lung adenocarcinoma between 2015 and 2017. Clinicopathological data were extracted from the database and analyzed. Patients were stratified into four groups based on the therapy they received; chemotherapy alone, chemoradiation (concurrent or sequential), first-generation EGFR-TKI, or surgical resection with or without chemoradiation. Log-rank test and Kaplan-Meier method were used to determine significant differences in the progression free survival (PFS) between treatment groups

      Of the 114956 patients treated at the institution during the study period 85 (0.07%) were eligible for the study. 12 patients (14.1%) received chemotherapy, while 19 (22.4%), 30 (35.3%) and 24 (28.2%) received chemoradiation, EGFR-TKI and surgery respectively. The common mutations included Del19 (N=35, 41.18%), L858R (N=42, 49.41%), G719X (N=4, 4.71%) and S768I (N=2, 2.35%).

      The median PFS was shorter in patients who only received chemotherapy (8.5 months) as compared to those managed with chemoradiation (14.6 months), EGFR-TKI (16.2 months) or resection (18.6 months) (p=0.04,figure 1b). No statistically significant difference was observed in PFS between EGFR-TKI and chemoradiation (p=0.86), or EGFT-TKI and resection (p=0.90). A subgroup analysis of patients with N3 disease resulted in similar findings (figure1c).

      In conclusion, when used as a first-line therapy chemoradiation, EGFR-TKI and resection with or without chemoradiation can achieve similar PFS, which is superior to that of patients receiving chemotherapy alone. Further studies are required to elucidate the efficacy of EGFR-TKI as a first-line or as maintenance therapy for these patients.
