A Prospective Study of Constructing Immune Repertoire to Monitor the Therapeutic Effect in NSCLC Patients


Brief description of study

This study is designed to evaluate the untreated NSCLC patients. After participants have accepted chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy, the investigators used the next generation sequence technology (NGS) to construct immune repertoire to detective variation of patients' immune state and to monitor patients' therapeutic effect. The investigators are aim to explore the novel clone sequence as potential therapy target.

Detailed Study Description

Lung cancer was one of the most deadly tumors in the world. The standard of care for patients is platinum-based doublet chemotherapy concurrent with radiotherapy. As for patients with a mutant epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and anaplastic lymphoma kinase(ALK), EGFR or ALK tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are the standard first-line therapy. Now, the Food and Drug Administration approved Ipilimumab, Nivolumab, and Pembrolizumab as first-line or second-line therapy for NSCLC. However, there was no reports about therapeutic effect for NSCLC patients through detecting herself immune state, immune repertoire could explore patients' immune clonality and diversity using NGS technology.The investigators look forward to illuminate the mechanism of patients antitumor action.
