REVOLUTION will be a US multicenter observational registry in scope and governed by a steering committee of approximately 8 experts in NSCLC and outcomes research. The primary goal of the registry is characterizing patterns of use for NSCLC therapy. REVOLUTION will be a multicenter registry enrolling approximately 2,500 patients. Additional patients limited to those with EGFR mutations may be enrolled following the initial study period as needed to ensure adequate sample sizes needed to examine primary questions of interest in the EGFR mutant population. Patients will be enrolled over a three year period across approximately 25 geographically diverse academic as well as community based sites within the US. The five year follow-up period will ensure robust survival data for correlations with clinical, tumor, and treatment variables.
The target of 2,500 patients is meant to ensure adequate numbers of NSCLC patients with particular characteristics of interest including patients with adenocarcinoma, and EGFR mutations and effectively evaluate these patients with respect to key outcomes of interest including overall survival, time to progression, stage at progression, secondary metastases including brain metastases (at diagnosis and progression), comorbidity burden, and performance status at index date.
The study design allows a cross-sectional perspective with collection of detailed patient and clinical characteristics at enrollment followed by longitudinal assessment of clinician and patient-reported endpoints every three months. Centralized follow-up will be conducted by having sites upload patient data following each visit via the web-based data system, with patients who do not show up for site visits being contacted via telephone by the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) call center. Site recruitment and patient enrollment will be weighted based upon provider specialty and ability to enroll patients with NSCLC with the specified inclusion criteria.
