Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The following characteristics of the 'long-term responders' from the EAP; gender, ethnicity, smoking history (pack years), EGFR-TK mutation and histology of NSCLC. [ Time Frame: Characteristics will be recorded once, retrospectively ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the long-term safety in subjects treated with gefitinib by collecting information on: All adverse events that have lead to an interruption/reduction of gefitinib or another intervention [ Time Frame: Once, retrospectively for the period the patient has used gefitinib (minimal 3 years) ]
  • long-term safety in subjects; what real life data measures are being taken by lung physicians to counter side effects caused by long term gefitinib treatment; the number, reason, effect and description of interventions that have been taken [ Time Frame: Once, retrospectively for the period the patient has used gefitinib (minimal 3 years) ]
  • long-term safety: Number, reason and effect of interruptions during gefitinib use to determine side effects typical for the long-term treatment with gefitinib [ Time Frame: Once, retrospectively for the period the patient has used gefitinib (minimal 3 years) ]
