      In 2016, a survival score for limited stage small cell lung cancer (LS-SCLC) patients was developed to characterize prognostic sub-groups who underwent multimodal treatment. Herein, we validate the score in an independent external patient cohort.

      We reviewed the medical charts of 78 LS-SCLC patients treated with CRT at our institution. The survival score was calculated by independent prognostic factors: gender, Karnofsky performance status (50-70% vs. 80-100%), Tumor sub-stage (very limited vs. limited disease) and hemoglobin level before the start of radiation (<12 g/dl vs. ≥12 g/dl). Scoring points were derived from 2-year survival rates divided by 10 and the individual values for each prognostic factor were tallied. Three risk subgroups were defined (high, intermediate vs. low-risk: 9-13, 14-18 vs.19-26 points).

      Median overall survival in the validation cohort was 17 months (range: 1-123months). The 2-year survival rates were 0% in the high, 35% in the intermediate and 43% in the low-risk subgroup, respectively (p = 0.018). The difference in 2-year survival between the high and intermediate risk subgroups was significant (p = 0.007), whereas the 2yr-OS between the intermediate and low risk was not (p = 0.602). After stratification for the concurrent treatment mode, 2-year survival rates were 0% in the high, 60% in the intermediate and 58% in the low-risk subgroups, respectively (p = 0.004).

      The survival score was reproducible to estimate 2-year survival rates of patients with LS-SCLC, especially in the high and intermediate-risk subgroups. In order to better characterize the prognostic difference between intermediate and low-risk patients, the scoring system needs further optimization.
