Estimating Lifetime Benefits Associated with Immuno-Oncology Therapies: Challenges and Approaches for Overall Survival Extrapolations

ConclusionsStandard parametric models fitted to the initial ATLANTIC DCO generally underestimated longer-term OS, compared with the later DCO. Cure, parametric mixture and response-based landmark models predicted that larger proportions of patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer receiving IO treatments may experience long-term survival, which was more in keeping with the observed data. Further research using more mature OS data for IO treatments is needed.

Worldwide, especially in China, lung cancer accounts to a major cause of mortality related to cancer. Treatment decisions mainly depend on oncogenic driver mutations, which offer novel therapeutic targets for anticancer therapy. However, studies of genomic profiling of driver gene mutations in mainland China are rare. Hence, this is an extensive study of these mutations in Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) Chinese patients. Comparison of driver gene mutations of lung adenocarcinoma with other races showed that the mutational frequencies were similar within the different East Asian populations, while there were differences...

Authors: Weng X, Luo S, Lin S, Zhong L, Li M, Xin R, Huang P, Xu X Abstract To evaluate the cost-utility of pembrolizumab versus chemotherapy as the first-line setting for metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) from the US health care system perspective. A Markov model was developed to compare the life-time cost and effectiveness of pembrolizumab versus chemotherapy for untreated metastatic NSCLC, based on the clinical data derived from phase III randomized controlled trial (KEYNOTE-042,, NCT02220894). Weibull distribution was fitted to simulate the parametric survival functions. Drug cost...

In this study, we aimed to explore the efficacy and safety profile of apatinib monotherapy, or combined with chemotherapy or endothelial growth factor receptor (EGFR)-TKI in heavily pretreated non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with brain metastases. We performed a retrospective analysis for relapsed NSCLC patients with brain metastases from our institute, whom received apatinib (250mg or 500mg p.o. qd) monotherapy, or combination with EGFR-TKI or chemotherapy as second- or more line systemic therapy until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurred. The objective response rate (ORR), disease control rat...

ConclusionsThe models with semantic and texture features provided cross-validated AUCs of 0.85 –0.88 for classification of benign versus cancerous nodules, showing potential in aiding the management of patients.Key Points• Pretest probability of cancer can aid and direct the physician in the diagnosis and management of pulmonary nodules in a cost-effective way.• Semantic features (qualitative features reported by radiologists to characterize lung lesions) and radiomic (e.g., texture) features can be extracted from CT images.• Input of these variables into a model can generate a pretest likelihood of ca...

This study explored the effect of ginsenoside Rg3 on DNA repair and VRK1/P53BP1 signaling pathway. Ginsenoside Rg3 treatment significantly decreased the incidence and invasionin a mouse model of lung cancer induced by urethane. The results of cell survival assay and single cell gel electrophoresis showed that ginsenoside Rg3 protected lung adenocarcinoma cells from DNA damage as well as inhibited the proliferation of tumor cells. Ginsenoside Rg3 increased the mRNA and protein expression of VRK1 in NSCLC cells as measured by RT-qPCR and western blot, respectively. These findings suggests that ginsenoside Rg3 regulates VRK1 ...
