The multicentric retrospective BIO-Ra study combined inflammatory indices from peripheral blood and clinical factors in a composite prognostic score for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer patients receiving Radium-223 (Ra-223). In the present study, we evaluated (i) the prognostic power of the BIO-Ra score in the framework of the restricted use of Ra-223 promoted by the European Medicines Agency in 2018; (ii) the treatment completion prediction of the BIO-Ra score. Four hundred ninety-four patients from the BIO-Ra cohort were divided into three risk classes accord-ing to the BIO-Ra score to predict the treatment completion rate (p < 0.001 among all the three groups). Patients receiving Ra-223 after restriction (89/494) were at later stages of the disease compared with the pre-restriction cohort (405/494), as a higher percentage of BIO-Ra high-risk classes (46.1% vs. 34.6%) and lower median Overall survival (12.4 vs. 23.7 months, p < 0.001) was observed. Despite this clinically relevant difference, BIO-Ra classes still predicted divergent treatment completion rates in the post-restriction subgroup (72%, 52.2%, and 46.3% of patients belonging to low-, intermediate-, and high-risk classes, respectively). Although the restricted use has increased patients at higher risk with unfavourable outcome after Ra-223 treatment, the BIO-Ra score maintains its prognostic value.

Abstract

The multicentric retrospective BIO-Ra study combined inflammatory indices from peripheral blood and clinical factors in a composite prognostic score for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer patients receiving Radium-223 (Ra-223). In the present study, we evaluated (i) the prognostic power of the BIO-Ra score in the framework of the restricted use of Ra-223 promoted by the European Medicines Agency in 2018; (ii) the treatment completion prediction of the BIO-Ra score. Four hundred ninety-four patients from the BIO-Ra cohort were divided into three risk classes accord-ing to the BIO-Ra score to predict the treatment completion rate (p < 0.001 among all the three groups). Patients receiving Ra-223 after restriction (89/494) were at later stages of the disease compared with the pre-restriction cohort (405/494), as a higher percentage of BIO-Ra high-risk classes (46.1% vs. 34.6%) and lower median Overall survival (12.4 vs. 23.7 months, p < 0.001) was observed. Despite this clinically relevant difference, BIO-Ra classes still predicted divergent treatment completion rates in the post-restriction subgroup (72%, 52.2%, and 46.3% of patients belonging to low-, intermediate-, and high-risk classes, respectively). Although the restricted use has increased patients at higher risk with unfavourable outcome after Ra-223 treatment, the BIO-Ra score maintains its prognostic value.
