Abstract LBA75

Background

Patients with thoracic malignancies may have increased risk for COVID-19 mortality. This risk may be attributable to age, comorbidities, smoking history, pulmonary disease burden and cancer-directed therapies.

Methods

TERAVOLT is a global consortium examining outcomes and assessing risk factors associated with mortality of patients with thoracic malignancies and COVID-19 infection.

Results

As of July 15, 2020, 1012 patients from 20 countries have been entered; median age was 68 with 58 % male, 80% current/former smokers, most common comorbidities of HTN (49%) & COPD (26%); 82% NSCLC, 68 % patients with stage IV disease at COVID diagnosis, 65% on treatment (38% chemotherapy, 26% immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI), 16 % targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI). Of these, 72% were hospitalized; 56% of patients developed complications, most frequently pneumonia (40%) and 47% who did not have prior oxygen therapy required it. 32% of patients died during their COVID-19 infection. Only 33 % of patients continued their oncology treatment after infection. Patients presenting with pneumonia (OR 2.7 2-3.5), consolidation (OR 2 CI 1,5-2,8), bilateral lung abnormalities (OR 2,8 CI 2-3,9) and pleural effusion (OR 2,7 CI 1,8-4) were at increased risk of mortality. In multivariate analysis age ≥ 65 (OR 1,53 CI 1,11-2,1), active smoking (OR 2 CI 1,3-3), higher stage of cancer (OR 1,9 CI 1,3-2,7), ECOG PS ≥2 (OR 3,7 CI 2,7-5), steroids prior to COVID diagnosis (OR 1,8 CI 1,2-2,7), were associated with increased risk of death, while chemotherapy and TKI therapy use were not and interestingly patients on immunotherapy appeared to be at decreased risk for mortality (OR 0,6 CI 0,5-0,97).

Conclusions

Facing this ongoing global pandemic, TERAVOLT is the largest thoracic malignancy database confirming the high risk for COVID-19 mortality in this specific patient group. Physicians need to evaluate the risk of mortality from COVID-19 based on age, smoking status, stage of cancer, performance status, need for steroids and specific therapy in order to determine the appropriateness for cancer therapy and tailor patient care taking into account patients’ wishes and status of pandemic in the country.
