Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical outcome [ Time Frame: Reporting will be based on sample size and follow up time through 2022. ]
    Progression free survival: the time from the start date of palbociclib to the date of the progression of disease or death according to investigator's assessment

  2. Patient quality of life, as measured by EORTC QLQ-C30 [ Time Frame: Reporting will be based on sample size and follow up time through 2022. ]
    EORTC QLQ-C30 is used to assess changes in quality of life for patients undergoing treatment for cancer. It is a 30-item questionnaire assessing other cancer-related symptoms, with responses based on recall during the past week.

  3. Geriatric Assessments in patients equal to or greater than 70 years of age at enrollment, as assessed by G8 Screening Tool [ Time Frame: Reporting will be based on sample size and follow up time through 2022. ]
    The G8 Screening Tool is a physician-assessed tool to identify geriatric cancer patients for comprehensive geriatric assessment to evaluate an older person's functional ability, physical health, cognition and mental health, and socioenvironmental circumstances.

  4. Geriatric Assessments in patients equal to or greater than 70 years of age at enrollment, as assessed by Activities of Daily Living [ Time Frame: Reporting will be based on sample size and follow up time through 2022. ]
    Activities of daily living assesses patient basic self-care skills to maintain independence in home (bathing, dressing toileting, feeding oneself, maintain continent, transferring from bed/chair).

  5. Biomarker Assessment [ Time Frame: Reporting will be based on sample size and follow up time through 2022. ]
    Exploratory research question for investigating potential mechanism of response and resistance to palbociclib treatment, through genomic analyses in the blood samples collected at standard of care intervals.
