      • Abstract


      The group of the patients with advanced lung cancer surviving more than two years was limitated, particullary at era of the classic chemotherapy.In our material presented in 2013 on WCLC it made up 11%.The differences in efficacy betweeen Nivolumab and conventional treatment in pretreated patients remains unclear, particullary in the group with good response on chemotherapy with long interval between lines. We analyzed the efficacy and tolerance of Nivolumab in the long surviving group.

      Table nr 2 presents the efficacy and tolerability of Nivolumab.

      The patients obtained 190 injections of drug and only one patient requires 2,5 months break beacuse of typical AE-tyreoiditis G3. Other short breaks were dependent on personal requests ,not from AE. Treatment time is 12-17 months and is plannig to continue .No progression has been noticed. Follow-up is planned.

      Long surviving patients with significant interval between chemotherapy lines show excellent tolerability and good efficacy of Nivolumab regardless of the type of previous chemotherapy.Efficacy and tolerance of these patients are comparable to described group with better prognosis from trials Checkmate 003 and 153
