Advanced NSCLC: Maintenance Therapy

  • For patients without disease progression after first-line treatment, maintenance therapy is an option, but no clear standard yet exists

    • Goal is to prolong the duration of response and/or stable disease for as long as possible

    • Thereby enhancing PFS and overall survival

  • Maintenance may involve

    • Continuation maintenance (retaining a component of the original regimen)

    • Switch maintenance (substituting a new agent in the absence of PD)

Advanced NSCLC: Initial Chemotherapy

  • Standard frontline chemotherapy consists of a platinum doublet selected based on disease histology[1]

    • Pemetrexed-based regimens preferred for nonsquamous carcinoma[2,3]

    • Gemcitabine- or taxane-based regimens preferred for squamous carcinoma[1-3]

    • Pemetrexed and Cb/Tax, Avastin are SOC in nonsquamous

  • Studies indicate that no additional clinical benefit gained with 6 vs 4 cycles of initial therapy[4]

Pemetrexed Toxicities and Management

  • No difference in the incidence of serious toxicities observed in a retrospective analysis of pts who received vitamin B12 on the day of pemetrexed vs 1 wk earlier[1]

Cost effectiveness of maintenance therapy

Cost-Effectiveness of Maintenance Therapy

  • Few formal cost-effective analyses available

  • Recent economic analyses provide new insights

    • Pemetrexed as first-line maintenance in advanced nonsquamous NSCLC[1]

      • First study evaluate cost-effectiveness of maintenance

    • BR.21: erlotinib in second-line or third-line setting[2]

Cost effectiveness of pemetrexed as first line maintenance in advanced nsclc

Cost-Effectiveness of Pemetrexed as First-Line Maintenance in Advanced NSCLC

  • Data sources: RCTs, Medicare reimbursement rates, retrospective claims database analysis

  • Pemetrexed may be cost-effective vs observation or other maintenance approaches, according to investigators

    • Incremental cost per life-yr gained, pemetrexedvs observation

      • $122,371 for patients with nonsquamous histology only

      • $205,597 for all patients with advanced NSCLC

  • Results suggest importance of histology in selecting patients for maintenance therapy with pemetrexed

Klein R, et al. J ThoracOncol. 2010;5:1263-1272.


Economic analysis of erlotinib in advanced nsclc

Economic Analysis of Erlotinib in Advanced NSCLC

  • BR.21: randomized, placebo-controlled trial of erlotinibvs placebo in patients with previously treated advanced NSCLC (N = 731)

  • Use of single-agent erlotinib in patients who had failed first-line or second-line therapy associated with incremental cost-effectiveness ratio of $94,638 per life-yr gained

  • Molecular markers (eg, EGFR gene copy number) may identify more/less cost-effective subgroups

Bradbury PA, et al. J Natl Cancer Inst. 2010;102:298-306.


Maintenance individualization future directions

Maintenance Individualization: Future Directions

  • Studies needed to distinguish between patients who benefit from maintenance therapy vs those who can receive a treatment break

  • Response to first-line therapy

    • Objective response

    • SD

  • Clinical characteristics

    • Age

    • Gender

    • Performance status

    • Tumor burden and symptomatology

    • Molecular markers (eg, EGFR mutations)
