      45P - Treatment (Tx) patterns and overall survival (OS) in patients (pts) with stage IIIB–IV NSCLC in Portugal: An IPO-PORTO database analysis from the I-O Optimise initiative (ID 210)

      12:30 - 13:00  |  Presenting Author(s): Marta Alexandra Silva Soares

      • Abstract
      • Slides


      Understanding Tx patterns and related outcomes in the rapidly changing NSCLC landscape informs clinical decision-making. As part of I-O Optimise, a multinational research platform providing real-world insights into the management of lung cancers, Tx patterns and OS are reported for pts with NSCLC prior to immunotherapy reimbursement in Portugal.

      IPO-Porto, Portugal’s largest oncology hospital, has a research database linked to the RORENO cancer registry, covering northern Portugal. This database has collected data on 1524 adult pts with NSCLC since 2012; the current analysis includes pts diagnosed at stage IIIB–IV from Jan 2015 (when systemic anticancer therapy [SACT] data became available) to Dec 2016 (follow-up to Jun 2017). Tx patterns are shown for the first 3 Tx lines. Kaplan–Meier methods were used for OS and time to next Tx or death (TTNT) from SACT initiation.

      Of 595 pts diagnosed at stages I–IV in 2015–2016, 54 (9.1%) had stage IIIB and 338 (56.8%) had stage IV NSCLC (median age, 65 yrs [range: 27–90; 9.2% ≥80]; male, 77.3%; brain metastases, 16.3%; non-squamous [NSQ], 73.7%; squamous [SQ], 21.2%). Of the 372 NSQ/SQ pts, 284 (76.3%) had 1st-line SACT; 101 (27.2%) had 2nd-line, and 20 (5.4%) had 3rd-line (Table). Median OS from SACT initiation was 12.6 (NSQ) or 10.3 (SQ) months. Median OS was longer in stage IV pts without brain metastases (11.6 vs 7.6 months), and in treated NSQ pts with EGFR/ALK alterations vs wild type (14.4 vs 9.3 months). Most NSQ pts with EGFR/ALK alterations (73.0%) had a 1st-line tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI). Median TTNT was 11.0 months in NSQ pts on 1st-line TKI and 6.3 (NSQ) or 7.3 (SQ) months in pts on 1st-line platinum chemotherapy

      Pts with advanced NSCLC have a high burden of disease, with most diagnosed at stage IV and a short OS from SACT initiation. Future analyses will assess the post-reimbursement impact of immunotherapies (and new TKIs) on Tx and OS in Portugal.
