BEPACT- Lung: Impact of Patient Characteristics on Pneumo-oncologists NSCLC Systemic Treatment Decision in Belgium

2019-05-28 22:36:18 | BioPortfolio


The treatment landscape of metastatic NSCLC is rapidly evolving. There are new diagnostic and treatment options available in the coming months and years.

New combination treatments will give different solutions to pneumo-oncologists who might be guided by certain patient and tumor characteristics.

The link between patient and tumor characteristics in untreated stage IV NSCLC patients and systemic treatment needs further investigation, allowing the identification of possible treatment issues, data gaps and/or areas of improvement.


This is a multicenter, non-interventional, cross-sectional study. Consecutive patients with metastatic stage IV NSCLC selected for systemic treatment or best supportive care will be included in the trial at the time the patient signed the informed consent form (ICF). Patients that were selected for systemic treatment, should have received at least their first dose and a maximum of one cycle of the same treatment.

The pneumo-oncologist that treats the patient will fill in the CRF, indicating the systemic treatment option and the link with the variable categories that impacted the choice for a systemic treatment option.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.

A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

A quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.

A cell adhesion molecule that contains extracellular immunoglobulin V and C2 domains. It mediates homophilic and heterophilic cell-cell adhesion independently of calcium, and acts as a tumor suppressor in NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CANCER (NSCLC) cells. Its interaction with NATURAL KILLER CELLS is important for their cytotoxicity and its expression by MAST CELLS plays a role in their interaction with neurons; it may also function in synapse assembly, nerve growth and differentiation.
