Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to collect information about how a doctor uses the results of the VeriStrat® blood test to guide treatment for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. Understanding how VeriStrat test results influence doctors' decisions and patients' outcomes may help doctors to better treat NSCLC in the future. This study will also look to establish whether new investigational tests can help better predict the effectiveness of certain medications for certain patients. These new investigational tests are only for research purposes at this time.

Condition or disease
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Detailed Description:

The primary purpose of this observational study is to assess the physician's clinical practice patterns while using VeriStrat testing in subjects with NSCLC whose tumors are epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) wild-type (negative) or have unknown EGFR mutational status. This study will also attempt to further validate that VeriStrat test results stratify subjects by clinical outcomes in the real world, uncontrolled clinical setting while exploring whether certain therapeutic approaches may yield opportunities for further study.

Predictive tests that aid physician therapeutic decision making are critical for optimizing subject outcomes while minimizing toxicity and associated treatment costs. This study will provide data for the validation of immunotherapy tests currently being developed. Immunotherapy mechanisms are dependent upon the interactions between the tumor, tumor microenvironment, and the patient immune system. As such, a successful predictive test will reflect the complex interplay between tumor and host. The multivariate tests from Biodesix have the advantage of being able to assess this complex biology.

The information gained from this research will not only guide the adoption of the VeriStrat test and inform medical decision making, including treatment choice, but will allow the validation of additional mass-spectrometry-based proteomic tests.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Physician Treatment Patterns Description [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    1. Physician Treatment patterns Description: To describe physician treatment patterns pre and post-veriStrat testing. Describe the impact of the VeriStrat test results on treatment decisions, including but not limited to: percentage change in treatment decision, differences in chosen treatments between patients classified as VeriStrat good and those classified as VeriStrat Poor. Change in percentage of patients receiving systemic therapy or supportive therapies only.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Immunotherapy Stratification by Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 18 month ]
    To determine whether immunotherapy test(s) stratify immunotherapy-treated subjects by overall survival.

  2. Immunotherapy Stratification by Progression-Free Survival [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    To determine whether immunotherapy test(s) stratify immunotherapy-treated subjects by progression-free survival.

  3. VeriStrat Poor vs. Good Outcomes [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    To compare progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) outcomes between those classified as VeriStrat-Poor and VeriStrat-Good.

  4. Platinum-based therapy outcomes in VeriStrat Poor vs. Good subjects. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    To compare outcomes in subjects classified as VeriStrat-Poor and VeriStrat-Good and treated with platinum-based therapy.

  5. Immunotherapy outcomes in VeriStrat Poor vs. Good subjects. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    To compare outcomes in subjects classified as VeriStrat-Poor and VeriStrat-Good and treated with immunotherapy.

  6. Gemcitabine outcomes in VeriStrat Poor vs. Good Subjects [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    To compare outcomes in subjects classified as VeriStrat-Poor and VeriStrat-Good and treated with gemcitabine.

  7. VeriStrat label changes over time. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    To compare the longitudinal changes in VeriStrat classification over the course of the study

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Determination of Immunotherapy tests ability to stratify subjects based on treatment. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    To compare progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) outcomes in patients as stratified by the immunotherapy test(s) treated with chemotherapy or targeted therapies.

  2. Correlation between the VeriStrat test and Immunotherapy tests. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    To observe the correlation between VeriStrat classification and immunotherapy test(s) classification at baseline and longitudinally.

  3. Longitudinal changes in Immunotherapy tests. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    To describe the longitudinal changes in immunotherapy test classification over the course of the study.
