Abstract

Simple Summary Pazopanib treatment in advanced solitary fibrous tumour patients, assessed in the prospective GEIS-32 phase II clinical trial, has shown longer progression-free survival and overall survival versus chemotherapy treatment in control patients. In recent years, the interest in the prognostic and predictive value of different peripheral inflammatory indexes, such as neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio, platelet/lymphocyte ratio, and red cell distribution width, has been increased in sarcomas, showing significant results in different soft tissue sarcomas. However, they have not been previously analysed in solitary fibrous tumour (SFT) patients. These indexes were retrospectively analysed in the typical- and malignant-SFT cohorts treated with pazopanib of the GEIS-32 trial to evaluate their predictive or prognostic value. Pazopanib was assessed prospectively in the GEIS-32 phase II study (NCT02066285) on advanced solitary fibrous tumour (SFT), resulting in a longer progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) compared with historical controls treated with chemotherapy. A retrospective analysis of peripheral inflammatory indexes in patients enrolled into GEIS-32 was performed to evaluate their prognostic and predictive value. Patients received pazopanib 800 mg/day as the first antiangiogenic line. The impacts of baseline neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet/lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and red cell distribution width (RDW) on PFS, OS, and Choi response were evaluated by univariate and multivariate analysis. Metastasis-free interval (MFI), mitotic count, and ECOG were also included as potential prognostic factors. Sixty-seven SFT patients, enrolled in this study, showed a median age of 63 years and a female/male distribution of 57/43. The median follow-up from treatment initiation was 16.8 months. High baseline NLR, PLR, and standardised RDW were significantly associated with worse PFS and OS. NLR, RDW, MFI, and mitotic count were independent variables for PFS, while RDW and ECOG were independent for OS. Further, NLR and mitotic count were independent factors for Choi response. High baseline NLR and RDW values were independent prognostic biomarkers for worse outcome in advanced SFT patients treated with pazopanib.
