      80P - High blood platelets levels (BPL): A prognostic factor in patients with early or locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (ID 543)

      • Slides


      Patients with high blood platelets levels (BPL) have been reported to attenuate the efficacy of platinum-based chemotherapy and to have a worse prognosis when treated with surgery and postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy. This study describes a series of sample tumors from patients with clinically confirmed lung cancer.

      In all non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients diagnosed in the University Hospital of Lleida from January 2011 to December 2016, a real world data study of blood platelets levels (BPL) was performed. Each patient’s clinical history, pathology specimens and molecular results were noted. Four hundred and forty-five patients with low BPL formed the control group.

      The blood platelet levels (BPL) was analyzed in seven hundred and seventy-five (775) patients with an average of 290 mcL (24 - 995). In 330 patients (42%) a platelet level greater than 290 mcL was observed (22,1% females). The media age was 67 years. The smoking history was as follows: 57,2% former, 31,5% ex smokers and 11,2 never smokers. The clinical stages and histology were as follows: stage I and II: 17%, stage III: 30% and stage IV 53%; 43% of patients had adenocarcinoma histology, 36% squamous and 21% other. In patients treated with radical intention (surgery or chemotherapy plus radiotherapy) the median overall survival was 49 vs 36 months in patients with BPL ≥ 290 mcL (P = 0,00001), when they were compared with the control group, patients with high BPL (≥ 290 mcL) had overall shorter survival (P = 0,00001), regardless of histology, age or smoking history.

      Patients treated with radical intention and high BPL (≥ 290 mcL), have worse overall survival, regardless of histology, age or smoking history.
