      The efficacy and safety of nivolumab for the treatment of pretreated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) have been established. We conducted a retrospective multicenter trial to determine the significance of computed tomography (CT) morphologic characteristics as a predictor of nivolumab efficacy for advanced NSCLC patients.

      From April 2013 to March 2017, 78 pretreated NSCLC patients were enrolled. Our radiologist assessed the following tumor characteristics on CT before nivolumab treatment; interstitial septal thickening, peritumoral ground-glass opacity, spiculated margin, air bronchogram, cavity or necrosis, adjacent organ invasion, bulky lymph node (≥ 2.5 cm), and accumulation of small lymph nodes. After nivolumab treatment, objective response rate (ORR), disease control rate (DCR) and progression free survival (PFS) were analyzed with logistic regression and Cox proportional hazards regression models. Patient and CT morphologic characteristics were retrospectively analyzed. Significant parameters identified by univariate analysis were included in a multiple analysis.

      Of the 78 patients, 60 (77%) were male, and 72 (92%) patients were of performance status 0 to 1. Heavy smoking was related to higher ORR than light or never smoking (28% vs 0%, p=0.01).No morphologic characteristics were related to ORR or DCR. Interstitial septal thickening was significantly associated with shorter PFS (p=0.015, 77 vs 126 days). Adjacent organ invasion was also significantly associated with shorter PFS (p=0.047, 72 vs 118 days). However, they were not found to be significant on multivariate analysis.

      Interstitial septal thickening and adjacent organ invasion may be negative prognostic factors of nivolumab treatment for NSCLC.
