Some authors also suggested that disease extent could be replaced by several laboratory parameters (albuminaemia, natraemia and level of alkaline phosphatases) [8]. Given the extent and heterogeneity of the literature, many review articles addressing prognosis in lung cancer patients have attempted to identify clinically important and/or promising new prognostic factors in patients with lung cancer (for example, Buccheri and Fer- Among other classical factors easily measurable in routine, female sex, younger age, no or low weight loss, low LDH level, normal neutrophil count, normal hemoglobinaemia, as well as normal levels of NSE and CYFRA 21-1 have been mentioned as independent favourable prognostic factors [8]. A predictive factor influences how a cancer will respond to a certain treatment. In more advanced non-resectable disease, a younger age might be a feature of better prognosis although competing risks might have a higher impact on mortality in older patients. We will reply by email or phone if you leave us your details. The fusion between echinoderm microtubule-associated protein-like 4 (EML4) and anaplasic lymphoma kinase (ALK) has been recently identified in a subset of non-small cell lung cancers. Other negative prognostic factors included increased age and men for the LD‐SCLC group and increased age, men, increased number of metastatic sites at baseline, … 1. Limited stage small cell lung cancers have a much better prognosis than extensive stage cancers. The stage of lung cancer is the most important prognostic factor. Pretreatment PNI can better predict the prognosis of SCLC, especially in patients with age ≤ 60, no smoking history, … J Cancer. If validated, they could serve as standard covariate for adjustment in the search of further clinically useful factors. [38] published a 15-gene signature with a larger effect in resected patients, independent from stage with an overall HR of 15.02 (95% CI 5.12–44.04) with consistent results in stage I and stage II. dL−1) might be associated with a higher mortality and preoperative high Cyfra 21-1 level has been associated with higher risk of relapse [14]. Given that lung cancer is one of the common cancers world-wide, the implications of focusing on quality of life as well as survival require to be understood. Indeed, histology which has not been proven to be a strong independent and reproducible prognostic factor, is predictive of the benefit of pemetrexed in non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer, irrespective of the setting; pemetrexed combined with cisplatin versus cisplatin gemcitabine in chemo-naïve patients, maintenance pemetrexed versus placebo and pemetrexed versus docetaxel in second-line treatment. Non–small cell lung cancer stages 0 or 1 generally have a more favourable prognosis than stages 2, 3 or 4.

Most of the research carried out on predictive factors in lung cancer has been devoted to non-small cell lung cancer and we will restrict this review to non-small cell lung cancer. In fact, lung cancer patients are usually life-long smokers and present many comorbidities. For example, genetic signatures that might be very promising are not necessarily validated when adjusted for known classical prognostic factors. In resected patients, some publications have looked at genetic signatures, most often using small-to-moderate series of patients divided into training and validation sets. A prognostic factor is generally defined as a factor, measured before treatment, that has an impact on a patient′s outcome “independently” of received treatment or of the general class of … Similarly to non-resected non-small cell lung cancer, performance index is also a reproducible factor [8]. The pathologic staging of non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a key determinant of the patient's prognosis and the treatment options. A recent meta-analysis [61] also comes to the same conclusion, although through indirect comparisons, that patients treated with cisplatin-based chemotherapy and high ERCC1 expression have worse survival than patients with low expression of ERCC1 (HR 1.61, 95% CI 1.23–2.10) while this is not true when no chemotherapy is given (HR 0.80; 95% CI 0.51–1.31). However, their development and validation are more difficult and may require very large sample sizes in particular when the incidence of the predictive biomarker is low. The revised staging system was also tested on a larger Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) series of 4,884 patients diagnosed between 1998 and 2000. The authors concluded that the TNM stage should be used to stratify in clinical trials patients with stages I–III. Discussing your prognosis and thinking about the future can be challenging and stressful. 1. Rawson NSB, Peto J (1990) An overview of prognostic factors in small cell lung cancer: a report from the Subcommittee for the Management of Lung Cancer of the United Kingdom Coordinating Committee on Cancer Research. Search for other works by this author on: Oxford Academic. With the term “targeted therapies”, we mean a treatment that is supposed to target a specific characteristic of the tumour. Vascular endothelial growth factor receptors: VEGF and VEGFR-2 were investigated as predictive biomarkers in the BATTLE study (Biomarker-Integrated Approaches of Targeted Therapy for Lung Cancer Elimination). Google Scholar. They may also be able to tolerate chemotherapy and radiation better than people in poor health. Although the analysis was retrospectively done on a subgroup of 261 patients (out of the 443 randomised), the results suggest, surprisingly, that the predictive role of RRM1 is present for sensitivity to cisplatin–vinorelbine with better outcomes observed for RRM1-negative patients (better disease control rate, better progression free survival (6.9 months versus 3.9 months; p<0.001), better overall survival (11.6 months versus 7.4 months; p = 0.002) [63]. Recently, within the IASLC Lung Cancer Staging Project, data concerning 12,620 small cell lung cancer cases were collected and complete clinical TNM staging was available for 3,430 cM0 patients as well as complete pathologic TNM staging for 343 cases. Response rate was 35.6%, and median survival was 8.2 months (95% CI, 7.8 to 8.7) for the whole group. Introduction. The KRAS pathway links the EGFR pathway to cell proliferation and survival and KRAS mutations have been suggested as a mediating resistance to EGFR mediators. EML4-ALK is most often found in never-smoking patients with lung cancer. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of patients with pathological N1 non-small cell lung cancer who did not receive adjuvant chemotherapy. They failed to show any benefit of the TKIs, although some clinical factors were suggested to be predictive of benefit: Asian, female sex, non-smoking status, non-squamous histology. The prediction results of 3- and 5-year OS rates are shown in Figure 2. Tissue tests are done on lung cancer cells during diagnosis to see if there are certain changes (mutations) to the genes of the cancer cells. These studies are extremely important as chemotherapy remains a cornerstone in the treatment of early or advanced non-small cell lung cancer. Prognostic factors of oligometastatic non-small cell lung cancer: a meta-analysis Overall, factors including age, smoking status, type of metastasis were not associated with long-term survival of oligometastatic NSCLC patients. For years, treatment of small cell lung cancer has been guided by the extension of the disease: limited disease (generally defined as a disease limited to the hemithorax of origin, the mediastinum and the supraclavicular lymph nodes which can be encompassed in a radiation field) versus extensive disease. Adjuvant chemotherapy provides a demonstrated benefit in overall survival when given to resected patients but brings also some toxicities. The signature proposed by Zhu et al. They provide however very promising results. It was hypothesised that not all patients benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy and some biomarkers have been studied in order to identify subgroups of sensitive patients. The following features have been suggested to be associated with a more favourable prognosis: p53 normal status [18]; no EGFR expression [19]; low microvessel count [20]; low VEGF expression [21]; no overexpression of c-erbB-2 [22] with an effect possibly restricted to non-squamous histology [23]; Bcl-2 expression [24]; low KI67 expression [25]; absence of KRAS mutation [26]; TTF-1 positivity [27]; high level of p16 expression [28]; low or no ERCC1 expression (advanced NSCLC treated with platinum-based chemotherapy) [29]; low class III β-tubulin expression, in resected patients [30]; low survivin expression, in resected patients only [31]; and low lymphatic microvessel density, in surgically treated patients [32]. Examples of scales used to evaluate performance status include the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG), World Health Organization (WHO) and the Karnofsky performance status scale. Those signatures are not ready for use in clinical practice. But the recognition and identification of a predictive factor is not so straightforward and some new drugs have been developed without specifically knowing the target or without having available a method to measure the target with adequate reproducibility. A prognostic factor is an aspect of the cancer or a characteristic of the person (such as their overall health) that the doctor will consider when making a prognosis. Zhu et al. Tyrosine-kinase inhibitors (TKI) targeting EGFR, such as gefitinib and erlotinib, have been first tested in randomised clinical trials without patient selection in addition to chemotherapy, in chemotherapy-naïve or untreated patients [43–45].

Prognostic Factors and Biomarkers of Responses to Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors in Lung Cancer Andrea Bianco 1,2,*, Fabio Perrotta 3, Giusi Barra 4, Umberto Malapelle 5, Danilo Rocco 2 and Ra aele De Palma 4 1 Department of Translational Medical Sciences, University of Campania “L Vanvitelli”, 80131 Naples, Italy 2 Department of Pneumology and Oncology, A.O. Early stages of lung cancer have a better prognosis than later stages. However, when using current staging and prognostic indices, the prognosis can vary significantly. Most often, these factors are not reproducible and their prognostic independent value is not proven, with adjustment for well-known prognostic factors. Introduction. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Seven factors in eight patients with early stage SCLC were analyzed concerning the impact … People who are in better overall health are more likely to be able to have surgery to remove the lung cancer, which may improve survival. Further studies, either subgroups analyses of the first randomised trials or randomised trials having used of an enrichment design (i.e. Registered charity: 118829803 RR 0001, Non-small cell lung cancer survival statistics, Small cell lung cancer survival statistics, International Cancer Information Service Group. [37] derived a five-gene signature with impressive hazard ratio between low- and high-risk patients: 3.36 for overall survival (95% CI 1.35–8.35; p = 0.009) in the validation series (n = 86). Lung cancer, prognostic factors, survival, population-based, cancer registries Purpose. Quality of life in lung cancer patients: as an important prognostic factor. They can also be used as stratification factors. Prognosis and survival depend on many factors. Performance status measures how well a person can do their daily activities and everyday tasks. PubMed. [1], in a systematic overview of prognostic factors for non-small cell lung cancer, identified 887 articles published during a decade and more than 150 possible prognostic factors for non-small cell lung cancer. Many factors may influence lung cancer survival, including gender [ 2, 3 ], diagnostic age [ 4, 5 ], histological type [ 6, 7 ], and treatment modality [ 8 – 10 ]. The median number of studies examining each prognostic factor was 1 (range, 1 to 105 studies). Nomogram included all statistically significant prognostic factors in the Cox proportional hazard model, including age, sex, race, neoplastic grade, histological type, primary site, stage, LN metastasis, and surgery. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTAbnormal glycolysis is one of the hallmarks of cancer and plays an important role in its development. The true predictive factor was identified later [46]; the subgroup of patients who benefit in terms of progression-free survival from TKIs were those with somatic mutations in the EGFR gene (exons 19 and 21). Only a doctor familiar with your medical history, the type and stage and other features of the cancer, the treatments chosen and the response to treatment can put all of this information together with survival statistics to arrive at a prognosis. Although very interesting and promising, the additional prognostic value should be validated with adjustment for classical prognostic factors. This study focused on prognostic factors in early stage SCLC treated with radiochemotherapy. The research for prognostic factors in the surgical series has shown that DFI was the important, independent, prognostic factor. Early stages of lung cancer (stages 0 and 1) have a better prognosis than later stages (stages 2, 3 or 4). [38] as prognostic might also be predictive of a benefit reached with adjuvant chemotherapy (cisplatin and vinorelbine) in stage IB and II resected patients. We attempted to identify those patients for whom adjuvant chemotherapy would be indispensable. Blood vessel invasion is associated to an increased risk of relapse and death as shown by a meta-analysis (multivariate combined hazard ratio for relapse free survival 3.98 (95% CI 2.24–7.06) and for survival 1.90 (95% CI 1.65–2.19)) [15]. Development of targeted therapies is evolving rapidly for non-small cell lung cancer. Pei-Pei Wang 1,4*, Si-Hong Liu 2,4*, Cun-Te Chen 3,4*, Lin Lv 1,4, Dan Li 1,4, Qiong-Yao Liu 1,4, Guo-Long Liu 1,4 , Yong Wu 1,4 . The median number of factors reported to be significant in univariate analyses was 4 (range, 2 to 14 factors). The median number of factors reported to be significant in multivariate analyses per study was 2 (range, 0 to 6 factors). BACKGROUND/AIM: Only 0.1-0.17% of all lung cancer patients are diagnosed with stage I or II small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Among routine biological parameters, normal leukocytosis and normal neutrophil count, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level, calcaemia, haemoglobinaemia and albuminaemia have been identified as favourable independent prognostic factors. Circulating tumor cells as a new predictive and prognostic factor in patients with small cell lung cancer . Those prognostic classifications, although including different covariates, were recently validated using external data and can be used in clinical trials for stratification purposes. Nico Van Zandwijk, MD, PhD . They both play a part in deciding on a treatment plan and a prognosis. The aim of the present study was to assess the outcome of lung cancer patients who were admitted to a medical intensive care unit (MICU) and to identify the measurable predictors of their MICU outcome. A clinicopathologic study based on the new International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer/American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society international multidisciplinary lung adenocarcinoma classification, The Insternational Association for the Study of Lung Cancer Staging Project. The data of 545 NSCLC patients were retrospectively reviewed. The efficacy of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) for EGFR-mutated non-adenocarcinoma (ADC) non-small cell lung cancer patients is not well established.Herein, we investigated key prognostic factors influencing the efficacy of … Prognostic and predictive factors are often discussed together. The stage of lung cancer is the most important prognostic factor. Predictive factors are more directly useful in clinical practice as they are directly related to the efficacy of a specific treatment. Our population has a selection bias compared to the general patient population with stage IV NSCLC. Survival of cancer patients is one of the main quality indicators of the health care system since it reflects the extent to which cases are diagnosed at a potentially curable stage and also measures the effectiveness of the therapeutic procedure. A few of them now have a definite place for guiding therapeutic decisions in non-small cell lung cancer and we are on the way to a personalised medicine for the treatment of this disease. The predictive value remains to be further investigated [59]. 14-17, 20 In addition, the number of metastases, 13, 19 achievement of complete resection, 14 estrogen‐receptor status, 19 and the initial breast‐cancer stage 17 have been studied as possible prognostic factors for survival after pulmonary metastasectomy. The Role of Prognostic Factors and Oncogenes in the Detection and Management of Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer. The measure of how well a person is able to perform ordinary tasks and carry out daily activities. 2. The independent value remains to be proven and the conclusion holds mainly for limited tumours as few stage IV patients were included in the published studies [34]. Patients heavily pre-treated were investigated for 11 biomarkers and four different targeted treatments. They can sometimes guide the therapy and identify subgroups of patients where more aggressive therapy is needed. Other parameters from molecular biology like BCL2 expression, p53 normal status or no overexpression of HER2 [23] have been suggested but evidence is less clear. This specific target is expected to be a predictive factor. There are plenty of publications in the literature about biological markers not measured routinely in clinical practice. Eleven prognostic factors were retrospectively analyzed in 270 newly diagnosed patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer including age, sex, performance status, histology, stage, smoking status, hemoglobin level, forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), weight loss >5% in 3 months preceding therapy, number of involved organs, and type of first-line chemotherapy. The main poor prognostic factors identified were DAD‐like pattern (highest hazard ratio: 10.72), ≤60 days from start of nivolumab treatment to onset of ILD, pleural effusion before treatment, lesion distribution contralateral or bilateral to the tumor, and abnormal change in C‐reactive protein (CRP) levels. Prognostic factors related to postoperative survival in the newly classified clinical T4 lung cancer Keiji Yamanashi, Keiji Yamanashi Department of Thoracic Surgery, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University , Kyoto, Japan. On that series, it has been shown that increasing T is associated with progressively lower survival as well as increasing N and increasing stage (6th and 7th editions) although the numbers of patients staged IA, IB, IIA were quite small [40]. Small cell lung cancer is a highly chemosensitive tumour but progression-free survival and overall survival remain extremely poor. A retrospective analysis of the BR.21 trial [55], as well as a meta-analysis, confirmed that presence of KRAS mutation is a negative predictive factor for benefit of TKIs in advanced non-small cell lung (HR of 1.97, 95% CI 1.16–3.33 for KRAS mutated tumours, HR of 0.79, 95% CI 0.59–1.05 for wild-type tumours; p-value for interaction 0.003) [56]. Introduction. The following are prognostic and predictive factors for lung cancer.

Integrating several targets is also a challenge for future research. Depending on the population studied (small cell or non-small cell cancer, operable or not) other independent factors, identified in large series, improve the prediction of prognosis: sex, age, loss of weight, LDH, leukocytosis, neutrophilia, haemoglobin, serum calcium, NSE, Cyfra 21-1. Department of Oncology, Guangzhou First People's Hospital, School of Medicine, South China University of Technology 2. Surgical procedures more extended than lobectomy might also be indicative of a poor prognosis but this variable might just be correlated with other factors that led to the decision of the type of surgery [12]. Then we established the nomogram for predicting 1-, 3- and 5-year survival rates in SCC patients using these identified prognostic factors. Huaxia Yang 1#, Zhuoran Yao 1#, Xiaoxiang Zhou 1#, Zhongxing Bing 2, Lei Cao 2, Zhili Cao 2, Shanqing Li 2, Xuan Zhang 1, Yan Zhao 1, Xiaofeng Zeng 1, Fengchun Zhang 1, Naixin Liang 2. 2021 Jan 1;12(3):885-898. doi: 10.7150/jca.50274. Some prognostic classifications have been published [35, 36], integrating several independent classical prognostic factors but they need to be validated before being used in clinical practice. These innovations were informed by an analysis of data from the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) database that included 70,967 evaluable patients with non-small cell lung cancer and 6,189 with small cell lung cancer. Prognostic factors are very useful to get information about disease evolution and to construct homogeneous groups of patients. © 2021 Canadian Cancer Society All rights reserved. So, EGFR has become the first molecular target in advanced non-small cell lung cancer that is definitely of clinical usefulness in routine practice [47–53]; it is now a standard treatment to give patients with EGFR mutation a TKI as part of their first-line treatment although there still remains a role for chemotherapy [54]. Age ≤ 60 years, limited disease, high PNI, radiotherapy, and surgery were independent positive prognostic factors of SCLC patients treated with chemotherapy. Numerous studies have looked at the prognostic value of tumor metabolic activity as measured by [F]-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose positron emission tomography. Age ≤60 years (), (), and the us… Four different collaborative research groups attempted to construct prognostic classifications making use only of independent prognostic factors [41]. Furthermore, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has the highest prevalence rate but only a 14% 5-year survival rate in patients subjected to surgery ().So far, considerable progress has been made to identify the local environmental factors that promote tumor progression.
