INTRODUCTION: COVID-19 pandemics required changes in medical practices. In thoracic oncology, pembrolizumab was doubled to 400mg every 6weeks, nivolumab to 480mg every 4weeks. The objective of our study was to assess the impact on quality of life, and on psychological state, as well as the tolerance, of this new schedule. METHODS: Thoracic oncologic patients who underwent these therapeutic changes in our center during the first COVID-19 epidemic wave were included. Their quality of life was assessed using the Quality of Life Questionnaire-30, their psychological state by the Hospital Anxiety Depression (HAD) scale. We also reported the preferred administration schedule, as well as adverse events. RESULTS: Thirty patients were included. The overall quality of life was preserved. Rates on HAD scale were low. Tolerance was acceptable. In majority, patients preferred the new procedure. They had a significantly better quality of life compared to those who preferred the old one. CONCLUSIONS: This new immunotherapy schedule in thoracic oncology is well tolerated and allows a preservation of quality of life. This therapeutic option may be favored in the context of COVID-19 pandemics.

The objective of this document is to formalize a degraded mode management for patients with thoracic cancers in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The proposals are based on those of the French High Council for Public Health, on published data outside the context of COVID-19, and on a concerted analysis of the risk-benefit ratio for our patients by a panel of experts specialized on thoracic oncology under the aegis of the French-Language Society of Pulmonology (SPLF)/French-language oncology group. These proposals are evolving (10 April 2020) according to the situations encountered, which will enrich it, and are to be adapted to our institutional organisations and to the evolution of resources during the COVID-19 epidemic. Patients with symptoms and/or COVID-19+ are not discussed in this document and are managed within the framework of specific channels.
