Trends in immunotherapy use in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (aNSCLC) patients: analysis of real-world data
Research Immunotherapy, Treatment Patterns Cancer Lung
Leveraging data from a collaboration with 9 data partners, Friends of Cancer Research convened the Real-world Evidence Pilot 2.0, to examine trends and real world (rw) data endpoints in immunotherapy (IO) use for the front line treatment of aNSCLC. The study concluded that RWE analyses may reveal important trends in clinical cancer patient care including patterns of off-label use. The heterogeneity in the timing of IO uptake across datasets ranged from immediately after approval to ~12 months post-approval.
