      • Abstract

      Background

      This study sought to describe treatment patterns in terms of real world first-line (1L) and second-line (2L) treatment of metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) prior to the availability of Immunotherapies (IOs) in Italy.

      Metastatic NSCLC pts who initiated anti-cancer systemic treatment at IRST from Jan 2014 to Jun 2017 were included in this retrospective analysis based on electronic health records database, including information on demographics, clinical, tumor, molecular characteristics and treatment(s) administered.

      20c51b5f4e9aeb5334c90ff072e6f928 Results

      In total, 440 pts for 1L and 152 for 2L were analyzed. Median age was 69.5 and 65.9 yrs for the 1L and 2L, respectively.

      In this real world population prior IOs approval in Italy, treatments were largely in line with NSCLC treatment guidelines. As expected, the most frequent type of regimen in 1L setting was platinum doublet and in 2L was single agent chemo.
