Gemma A, Kudoh S, Ando M, Ohe Y, Nakagawa K, Johkoh T, Yamazaki N, Arakawa H, Inoue Y, Ebina M, Kusumoto M, Kuwano K, Sakai F, Taniguchi H, Fukuda Y, Seki A, Ishii T, Fukuoka M - Cancer Sci. (2014)

Bottom Line: Interstitial lung disease was confirmed in 429 (4.3%) patients.These data confirm the well-characterized safety profile of erlotinib.Interstitial lung disease is still an adverse drug reaction of interest in this population, and these results, including ILD risk factors, give helpful information for treatment selection and monitoring.

(a) Overall survival (OS) and (b) progression-free survival (PFS) assessed by Kaplan–Meier methodology in the overall population of patients with unresectable, recurrent/advanced non-small-cell lung cancer who were treated with erlotinib in Japan between December 2007 and October 2009; (c) median OS and (d) PFS in patient subpopulations. CI, confidence interval; ECOG PS, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status.

fig03: (a) Overall survival (OS) and (b) progression-free survival (PFS) assessed by Kaplan–Meier methodology in the overall population of patients with unresectable, recurrent/advanced non-small-cell lung cancer who were treated with erlotinib in Japan between December 2007 and October 2009; (c) median OS and (d) PFS in patient subpopulations. CI, confidence interval; ECOG PS, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status.

Mentions: Median OS was 277 days (95% CI, 264–292), with a 6-month survival rate of 62.6% and a 12-month survival rate of 42.8% (Fig. 3a). Median PFS was 67 days (95% CI, 64–70), with a 6-month progression-free rate of 25.8% and a 12-month progression-free rate of 10.6% (Fig. 3b). Compared with the overall population, median OS and PFS appeared to be longer in female patients, non-smokers, patients with ECOG PS 0–1, and patients with grade ≥2 rash (Fig. 3c,d).
