Abstract:

Background: Immunotherapy has shown promising results for clinical management of various cancers. We reported our real world experience with PD-1 or PD-L1 immunotherapy in management of advanced lung cancer patients in China. Methods: This is a single-center retrospective study based on the de-identified electronic medical data collected in routine clinical practice. A total of 198 advanced lung cancer (stage IIIA-IV) patients who underwent anti-PD-1/PD-L1 therapy at Chinese People's Liberation Army General Hospital between 2015 and 2018 were included. Progression free survival and overall survival of patients were estimated by Kaplan-Meier methods. The treatment-related adverse events were also analyzed. Results: Median age of patients was 60.0 years (33.0-88.0 years). Most patients were male (150, 75.8%), smokers (116, 61.7%) and had a KPS score ≥70 (169, 97.7%). Of 198 patients, 106 (53.5%) had adenocarcinoma and 54 (17.3%) had squamous cell carcinoma. Thirty-one (15.7%) patients had CNS metastases. Seventy-one (38.8%) patients received two or more prior therapies. Estimated progression free survival was 5.6 months and overall survival was 24.5 months. One-hundred twenty-seven (64.1%) patients had documented to suffer adverse events, most commonly gastrointestinal adverse events and liver damage (Table). Conclusions: Our study showed survival benefits of PD-1/PD-L1 immunotherapy in advanced NSCLC patients in clinical practice. Safety profile was comparable to the previous studies. Our study supports the benefits of PD-1/PD-L1 immunotherapy in clinical management of advanced lung cancer patients.
