Clinical benefit, price and approval characteristics of FDA-approved new drugs for treating advanced solid cancer, 2000-2015. Three kinds of between-group contrast metrics (i.e., the difference in RMST, the ratio of RMST and the ratio of the restricted mean time lost (RMTL)) are computed. September 27, 2017. Ben-Aharon O, Magnezi R, Leshno M, . Lenalidomide after stem-cell transplantation for multiple myeloma. Under certain conditions, 2,000 sets of realizations in default are generated for calculating confidence intervals of RMST differences. Stewart AK, Rajkumar SV, Dimopoulos MA, . Forbes. In this paper, we discuss the calculation of RMST at any given time point (up to the largest observation) using PROC LIFETEST. Improved survival with ipilimumab in patients with metastatic melanoma. Evidence of nonproportional hazards was examined for each curve using the Grambsch-Therneau test, with a P value 24. Immunotherapy cancer drug hailed as âgame changerâ. Methods: Kaplan-Meier curves were extracted from phase II/III randomized controlled trials used by the FDA for oncology drug approvals from January 2011 through November 2017 with overall survival (OS) or progression-free survival (PFS) as primary endpoints. Available at: https://www.cnn.com/2017/06/02/health/immunotherapy-cancer-debate-explainer/index.html. Unlike the HR, which is a ratio of the rates of death,20 RMST ratio is a ratio of survival, which is arguably clinically more meaningful. Our meta-regression results showed that even after adjustment for potential covariates, the magnitude of benefit of FDA-approved drugs in 2011 through 2017 did not seem to improve over the years, which is consistent with current literature. Summary statistics of included trials are shown in Table 1. By default, this assumes that the longest survival time is equal to the longest survival time in the data. The difference between two arms in the restricted mean survival time is an alternative to the hazard ratio. In comparing survival benefits, immunotherapy was not dramatically superior to nonimmunotherapy; outcomes were more modest than perceived. Hope and hype around cancer immunotherapy. Etzioni R, Gulati R, Lin DW. For relative survival benefit measures, HRs rely on the proportional hazards assumption, which depends on the number of observed events and not directly on exposure times or sample size of the study.6 HRs also may vary with time and thus violate the proportional hazards assumption.7,8 When the proportional hazards assumption is violated, the HR estimate may not be a statistically valid measurement of the treatment effect and becomes difficult to interpret clinically. Using RMST difference (absolute survival benefit) and RMST ratio (relative survival benefit), we quantified the magnitude of survival benefits of recent oncology drugs and compared immunotherapies with nonimmunotherapies. Palumbo A, Chanan-Khan A, Weisel K, . For PFS, immunotherapy showed less absolute PFS benefit than nonimmunotherapy by 1.67 months (1.56 months [95% CI, 1.02â2.09] vs 3.23 months [95% CI, 2.85â3.61], respectively; PFigures 2 and 3).

Moving beyond the hazard ratio in quantifying the between-group difference in survival analysis. and rmean (restricted mean) computes the mean survival time restricted to the longest follow-up time. You can get the restricted mean survival time with print (km, print.rmean=TRUE). Meta-analyses of RMST differences and ratios were conducted using Review Manager software (version 5.3) to estimate overall absolute and relative survival benefits of the drugs and to compare those of immunotherapy versus nonimmunotherapy. However, the percentage of patients estimated to respond to checkpoint inhibitor drugs was 0.14% in 2011 and increased to 12.46% in 2018.38 Although the benefit of immunotherapies has been shown to be more significant in subgroups of patients with certain cancer types (ie, melanoma and NSCLC29,30), there is a paucity of data comparing the magnitude of immunotherapy versus nonimmunotherapy options. Meta-analysis results of RMST ratio (relative survival benefit). Demetri GD, von Mehren M, Jones RL, . Mean overall absolute survival benefits in contemporary oncology drugs seem to be only modest for OS (1.6 months), with a slightly higher benefit in PFS (3 months). No other covariates were significant for this meta-regression (supplemental eTable 3). Nat Rev Clin Oncol 2018;15:268â270. Measures of RMST fully capture absolute and relative survival benefits presented in KM curves. J Natl Cancer Inst 2018;110:486â492. The objectives in a survival analysis may include estimation of one or more of these statistics at specified Section ‘A strategy fordesignandanalysis of clinicaltrials’discusses our pro- … Meta-regression was conducted to adjust for potential confounders. Meta-analyses demonstrated that overall aggregate absolute survival benefits, measured using RMST difference, showed additional benefit in the experimental arms over the control arms by 1.55 months (95% CI, 1.32â1.77) for OS and 2.99 months (95% CI, 2.65â3.33) for PFS (Figure 2). BMC Med Res Methodol 2013;13:152. Several regression‐based methods exist to estimate an adjusted difference in RMSTs, but they digress from the model‐free method of taking the area under the survival function. Meta-regression was conducted using Comprehensive Meta-Analysis software (version 31; Biostat, Inc.) to assess and adjust for the confounding effects of covariates.

Andersen PK, Hansen MG, Klein JP. This suggests the need for future research of immunotherapy biomarkers and clinicopathologic predictors to allow better selection of patients for immunotherapy. Background: Restricted mean survival time (RMST) overcomes limitations of current measures of survival benefits because it directly captures information of the entire area under Kaplan-Meier survival curves. Only phase II/III randomized controlled trials with a primary endpoint of overall survival (OS) and/or progression-free survival (PFS) with published KM curves were included in this study.

Of the 94 included trials, proportional hazards assumption was found to be violated in 45 trials; 9 (69%) of the immunotherapy trials and 36 (44%) of the nonimmunotherapy trials were found to have nonproportional hazards. Available at: Williams B. Immunotherapy: a game-changer for cancer treatment? the various RePEc services. After adjustment for potential confounding variables (occurrence of crossovers in the trials, time horizon of trials, year of FDA approval, trial phase, existence of companion diagnostics for the drug, drug approval type, and line of therapy) using meta-regression (eFigures 3â6), the adjusted absolute survival benefit for OS was 0.91 months greater for immunotherapy than for nonimmunotherapy (2.29 vs 1.38 months, respectively; P=.01).

Two types of one-sided tests, non-inferiority and superiority tests, are prepared. Subgroup analyses for immunotherapy versus nonimmunotherapy were performed to compare survival benefits. strmst2pw is a postestimation command that can be used after strmst2 with the covariates option specified, and summarizes pairwise comparisons for the previous analysis. J Clin Oncol 2016;34:1510â1517. J Clin Oncol 2017;35:3198â3206. Treatment effects measured by restricted mean survival time in trials of immune checkpoint inhibitors for cancer. Of these trials, 13 were used for immunotherapy approval representing 4 immunotherapy drugs, and 81 were used for nonimmunotherapy approval representing 62 nonimmunotherapy drugs (supplemental eTable 1). BBC. 1,2 In this article, we discuss the advantages of an alternative analytical procedure based on the restricted mean survival time (RMST) 1,2 via 3 examples. Ann Oncol 2017;28:1111â1116. Decisions on finalized calculation results were made after discussion between reviewers. Accessed March 12, 2018. Available at: Howard J. Saluja R, Arciero VS, Cheng S, . These studies have found that even though costs are consistently and rapidly increasing, the benefits do not necessarily follow the same trends.14â16 Although the variety of oncology drugs has increased over the years, these drugs do not necessarily provide increasing survival benefit. The package calculates the study sample size and power in designing clinical trials using the difference in restricted mean survival time (RMST). You can help adding them by using this form . Restricted Mean Survival Time – The Basic Idea As its name suggests, Restricted Mean Survival Time (RMST from here on out) is simply the average number of time periods a customer survives before churning… except that the highest values are “restricted” to some maximum. Overall, absolute survival benefits of recent oncology drugs are modest. Guyot P, Ades AE, Ouwens MJ, . Grady D. Harnessing the immune system to fight cancer. Waterfall plots were created to visualize RMST values between immunotherapy and nonimmunotherapy trials (supplemental eFigures 11â14). Uno H, Tian L, Cronin A, . Control Clin Trials 1986;7:177â188. Furthermore, without PH, the estimated HR is not a simple average of HRs over time, and is even more difficult to interpret. Brahmer J, Reckamp KL, Baas P, . Restricted mean survival time, a robust measure that represents the mean event-free survival time in a prespecified period, may provide useful information on treatment effect that complements conventional measures of relative and absolute risk reductions. Association of immunotherapy with durable survival as defined by value frameworks for cancer care. Pembrolizumab versus docetaxel for previously treated, PD-L1-positive, advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (KEYNOTE-010): a randomised controlled trial. Huang B, Kuan PF. Our study quantified that contemporary oncology drugs give modest mean survival benefits of 1.6 months for OS and 3 months for PFS. In addition, because of the crossing of survival curves in some immunotherapy trials,9â13 a subgroup of patients (eg, those with rapidly progressive disease) could seem to benefit more from cytotoxic therapy than immunotherapy, which shows its benefits later.

Overall survival was used as primary or … All material on this site has been provided by the respective publishers and authors. N Engl J Med 2010;363:711â723. The adjusted relative survival benefit for OS was higher for immunotherapy than for nonimmunotherapy by a factor of 1.08 (P=.01) (supplemental eTable 5). We present strmst2, a new command to implement k-sample comparisons using the restricted mean survival time (RMST) as the summary measure of the survival-time distribution.Unlike model-based summary measures such as the hazard ratio, the validity of which relies on the adequacy of the proportional-hazards assumption, the measures based on the RMST (that is, the difference in RMST, … Do the American Society of Clinical Oncology Value Framework and the European Society of Medical Oncology Magnitude of Clinical Benefit Scale measure the same construct of clinical benefit?

Recent studies have questioned whether the magnitude of benefit of FDA-approved contemporary oncology drugs has been increasing over time, just as their costs have been. It provides a more easily understood measure of the treatment effect of an intervention in a controlled clinical trial with a time to event endpoint.

If discrepancies greater than the margin of error were found, the 2 reviewers repeated the extraction and calculation process to determine the reason for the discrepancy. The RMST and RMTL options estimate the restricted mean survival time and the restricted mean time lost, respectively. Ann Oncol 2017;28:2340â2366. Liang F, Zhang S, Wang Q, . Regression analysis of restricted mean survival time based on pseudo-observations. We describe different methods of estimating it and we illustrate its application to three RCTs in cancer. Because RMST methods seem to be a reasonable alternative approach to measure survival benefits to overcome limitations of conventional measures, our study aimed to quantify the magnitude of survival benefit in oncology drugs recently approved by the FDA, using RMST difference (absolute survival benefit) and RMST ratio (relative survival benefit) in a meta-analysis. Pak K, Uno H, Kim DH, . Conclusions: Absolute survival benefits of recent oncology drugs are modest. US Food & Drug Administration. With various studies showing a steady increase in the cost and variety of novel oncology drugs, the benefits associated with these drugs are not necessarily following the same upward trend.14â16, Restricted mean survival time (RMST) is increasingly being recognized as a robust and clinically interpretable summary measure alternative to HR and median survival time because it directly quantifies information of the entire observed survival curve.7,17 RMST is defined as the area under the KM curve up to a specific time point (t), which is the follow-up time of the study.18,19 Because this measure takes the average (ie, mean, not median) to summarize the entire survival profile, it does not rely on the proportional hazards assumption and captures the benefit across the entire trial.6,19 RMST difference is the difference between the area under the KM curve of the treatment arm and the control arm, and has been proposed as a measure of absolute survival benefit as an alternative to median survival time.6 RMST ratio is the ratio of the RMSTs between the treatment arm and the control arm.7 An RMST ratio >1 shows an improvement in survival in the treatment arm. Disclosures: The authors have disclosed that they have not received any financial consideration from any person or organization to support the preparation, analysis, results, or discussion of this article. The margin of error agreed on was RMST values Â±1 week a priori. Williams B. Immunotherapy: a game-changer for cancer treatment? Uno H, Wittes J, Fu H, . The RMST represents the area under the survival curve from time 0 to a specific follow-up time point; it is called restricted mean survival time because given X as the time until any event, the expectation of X (mean survival time) will be the area under the survival function (from 0 to infinity). The restricted mean survival time (RMST) is an alternative treatment outcome measure that can be estimated as the area under the survival curve up to a prespecified time horizon and hence can account for all survival information before that time horizon. N Engl J Med 2015;373:123â135. Citation: Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network J Natl Compr Canc Netw 18, 3; 10.6004/jnccn.2019.7362.

Trinquart L, Jacot J, Conner SC, . Immunotherapy trials sometimes exhibit nonproportional hazards, often because of late postprogression benefit (ie, after median survival times) or nonuniform divergence of the survival curves with potential plateau of the immunotherapy arm, with some trials even exhibiting crossing of survival curves.9â13 Median survival time also does not account for the âtail of the curve,â where the benefit of immunotherapy is more pronounced. DerSimonian R, Laird N. Meta-analysis in clinical trials. Hematology/Oncology (cancer) approvals & safety notifications. After adjusting for potential confounders, mean absolute survival benefit of immunotherapy is only approximately 1 month greater than nonimmunotherapy in OS and approximately 1 month less than nonimmunotherapy in PFS.
