The objective is to investigate the correlation between smoking pattern and clinical efficacy of EGFR TKIs in male patients with locally advanced or metastasized non-small cell lung cancer of adeno histology who have failed 1st line chemotherapy. Health care resource usage, quality of life (EQ-5D) and practice of EGFR mutation test will also be evaluated. Current practice of EGFR mutation testing in Taiwan will be surveyed.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlation between smoking patterns and best objective tumor response rate [ Time Frame: 6 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • correlation between smoking patterns and progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 9 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • correlation between smoking patterns and overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 9 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • changes from baseline in quality of life questionnaires (EQ-5D) after EGFR-TKI therapy [ Time Frame: 3 Months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Male patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) of adeno histology


Ages Eligible for Study:   20 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population

Primary Care Clinic


Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male patients age 20 years or older
  • Histological or cytological confirmation of NSCLC of adeno histology. If sputum is the only available sample, a second positive test is necessary for cytological confirmation
  • Locally advanced or metastatic on or after first-line chemotherapy. Imaging evidence of disease progression can be either chest X ray, CT or MRI assessment on measurable lesions. If no measurable lesion is available, evaluable lesions are acceptable
