      No phase III trials have been carried out to prove the value of a platinum-doublet rechallenge in p with NSCLC. Currently, the availability of different effective drugs makes the platinum-based salvage therapy unusual. Moreover, the potential cumulative toxicity related to cisplatin or carboplatin can be an issue. However, retreatment with platinum-based CT could be hypothetically proposed for p with a long time to progression (TTP) from the last platinum treatment, in p with a good performance status, who may be symptomatic and with no formal contraindication to receive such treatment We have retrospectively reviewed experience at our institution of platinum-based chemotherapy rechallenge in stage III and IV NSCLC p


      A cohort of 376 p with stage III and IV NSCLC treated with first-line platinum doublets from January 2012 to December 2017 were included. We extracted information on clinical and molecular characteristics, as well as treatment details. Time to progression was evaluated by Kaplan-Meier curves and groups were compared using Log-rank test.


      Overall, 57 p were rechallenged with platinum-based CT (group A). Median age was 57 years (51.5-65) for rechallenged p versus (vs) 62 (56.2-68.8) for the entire cohort (group B)[p=0.001]. Group A include more p with stage III p( 54.4% vs. 30.7%; p=0.001), as well as more p with better ECOG Performance Status (PS) (PS 0 70.2% vs. 44.5%; p=0.001). No differences in gender, smoking status, histology and comorbidities were observed between both groups (20.7% and 29.8% were women and 38.6% and 53.9% were smokers in groups A and B, respectively).

      No differences in molecular profile (EGFR, ALK, ROS1, KRAS, BRAF) were observed. The most common platinum doublet administered in first line setting was cisplatin plus pemetrexed. Group A received more frequently carboplatin plus gemcitabine or vinorelbine. Disease Control Rate (DCR) was 57.9% in p included in group A. No differences in DCR were observed in first line between both groups. Time to progression or death was 9.6 m for gropuo B(5-18.1) vs 20.5 m (14.6-37.3) p <0,001 for p in group A.


      Rechallenge with platinum-based CT doublets could represent an option for NSCLC p with good PS and no contraindications for such therapy.
