The database analysis, which was supported by an unrestricted grant from Thermo Fisher Scientific, focused on 525 newly diagnosed stage 4 NSCLC patients harboring genetic mutations or actionable oncogenic drivers (AOD). The findings suggest that treatment outcomes were significantly compromised in patients (n=141) who initiated treatment (chemotherapy, immune checkpoint inhibitor, or both) before their AOD results were reported, compared to the control group of patients (n=384) who initiated treatment after receiving their AOD results.
