Brief Summary:

In patients with locally advanced or metastatic tumors, first-line therapeutic management is based on the use of targeted therapies (EGFR, BRAF ALK and ROS1 inhibitors), immunotherapies (anti-PD1/ anti-PDL1-antibodies or chemotherapy.

Despite patient selection based on histo-pathological and molecular criteria, not all patients respond to treatment. There are currently no markers to definitively guarantee a patient's response.

An alternative is to identify early patient response to treatment. The investigator hypothesize that change in circulating tumor DNA concentration (ctDNA) allow to early identify patients' therapeutic response (and non-response) of patients, regardless of the type of treatment used in the first line setting.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Metastatic Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Other: ctDNA analysis Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The primary objective is to determine whether early evolution (between baseline and week 3) of circulating tumor DNA concentration predicts the radiological response to first-line treatment of advanced or metastatic NSCLC patients, regardless of treatment

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: ctDNA analysis
additional blood sample of 20 ml
Other: ctDNA analysis
blood sample at Baseline, 3weeks, 9 weeks after treatment, at progression if applicable

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Biological response at week 3 [ Time Frame: week 3 after patient's recruitment date (baseline) ]
    Changes of the amount of ctDNA between baseline and week 3 will make it possible to determine the biological response: increase, stability or decrease in ctDNA.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free survival (radiological assessment) and biological response at week 3. [ Time Frame: week 3 after baseline ]
    Radiological assessment, based on Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria v1.1, will be: complete response, partial response, progression or stabilization. Biological response will be: increase, stability or decrease in ctDNA.

  2. biological progression and radiological progression [ Time Frame: progression ]
    Biological progression will be: increase in ctDNA - Radiological progression will be defined according to RECIST criteria v1.1 will be: progression

  3. biological response and radiological response [ Time Frame: progression ]
    Biological response will be: increase, stability or decrease in ctDNA and Radiological response will be defined according to RECIST criteria v1.1 will be: complete or partial response

  4. Biological response and progression-free survival (radiological assessment) according to the therapeutic management: targeted therapies, immunotherapy, chemotherapy [ Time Frame: week 3 after baseline ]
    Radiological assessment, based on RECIST criteria v1.1, will be: complete response or partial response. Biological response will be: increase, stability or decrease in ctDNA.
