Purpose:

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Survey on Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) in Oncology Registry (ASCO Registry) aims to help the cancer community learn more about the patterns of symptoms and severity of COVID-19 among patients with cancer, as well as how COVID-19 is impacting the delivery of cancer care and patient outcomes. The ASCO Registry is designed to collect both baseline and follow-up data on how the virus impacts cancer care and cancer patient outcomes during the COVID-19 pandemic and into 2021.


Study summary:

Rationale: The COVID-19 Pandemic presents a unique opportunity to capture information on how a disease outbreak affects delivery of high-quality cancer care. ASCO is providing the means for the oncology community to rapidly submit data that will inform both current cancer care and provide information to help guide decision-making for future disease outbreaks. While other entities have launched COVID-19 cancer registries, ASCO's registry collects information about patients undergoing treatment for cancer and with confirmed COVID-19 infection based on a positive test. Unlike other registries, ASCO's registry collects follow-up information on both COVID-19 disease and cancer outcomes at 30-day intervals for the first 90 days and 90-day intervals thereafter up to one year after COVID-19 diagnosis. Project Objectives: Capture and describe cancer and COVID-19 status at COVID-19 diagnosis, and cancer and COVID-19 outcomes of patients with cancer and COVID-19 from participating cancer practices/institutions. Data collected includes treatment approaches, cancer status, changes to cancer treatment plans in patients with confirmed severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection, status of COVID-19 infection (e.g., severity of symptoms, need for ventilator, hospitalization, etc.) and cancer (e.g., cancer progression, treatment-related changes/modifications, etc.). Research Objectives: Objective 1: Describe the distribution of symptoms and severity of COVID-19 among patients with cancer (on active treatment or on adjuvant treatment within 12 months after surgical resection) who have confirmed infection of SARS-CoV-2 •Objective 1.1: Describe distribution of symptoms and severity of COVID-19 stratified according to demographic characteristics, including age, cancer type, cancer extent, race, ethnicity, geography, type of therapy received, smoking status, comorbidities, etc. •Objective 1.2: Identify characteristics independently associated with severity of COVID-19 in cancer patients. Objective 2: Examine SARS-CoV-2 viral infection outcomes (ongoing, recovery, hospitalized, not in ICU; hospitalized in ICU; placed on ventilator; death due to COVID-19 disease complications) and cancer outcomes (stable, response to treatment, progression, delayed treatment, treatment discontinued, and death) - Objective 2.1: Stratify patients with SARS-CoV-2 viral infection according to characteristics described in Objective 1.1 to examine whether any of the characteristics are independently associated with COVID-19 and/or cancer outcomes - Objective 2.2: Examine the relationship between SARS-CoV-2 viral infection outcomes and cancer outcomes and whether SARS-CoV-2 viral infection outcomes are independently associated with cancer outcomes Objective 3: To describe effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on cancer practices in the U.S., including changes in staffing and resource availability, priorities for patient care, and modification of interactions between care providers and patients (including use of telemedicine) Eligibility Criteria: The registry collects data about patients with a cancer diagnosis who have a confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection and are being treated at participating cancer practices/institutions within the United States. Patients in one of the four categories are eligible: 1. Patients with a new cancer diagnosis and in the process of cancer staging and/or receipt of initial cancer therapy 2. Patients with clinically evident cancer receiving anti-cancer treatment, 3. Patients who are disease free, but receiving any type of adjuvant therapy within 1 year following surgical resection (including hormonal treatments), and 4. Patients with clinically evident cancer receiving supportive care only. Statistical Considerations and Reporting: ASCO's Center for Research and Analytics (CENTRA) will periodically create reports to share with participating practices and the general cancer community, and submit manuscripts for publication. Reports will summarize overall data and stratified by patient characteristics, such as disease sites and stage, age and comorbidities. Reports or publications will also include cancer treatment delay and discontinuation of cancer treatments including surgery, radiation and drug-based therapies, due to the patient's COVID-19 disease and to other factors, with stratification by other variables as described above. Changes in practice patterns of care, staffing, resources, and interactions with patients will also be evaluated and summarized. As there is no hypothesis testing planned, there is no required sample size and providing reports also provided to other registries, with cumulative information, will not affect validity of results. Confidence intervals will be provided where appropriate to demonstrate precision of estimates.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - COVID-19 positive diagnosis - One of the following; 1. Patient has active cancer at the time of COVID-19 diagnosis OR 2. Patient has been cancer-free for less than 12 months AND receiving adjuvant therapy at the time of COVID-19 diagnosis Exclusion Criteria: - COVID-19 suspected, but no positive test result - Patient is a cancer-free not receiving any anti-cancer or adjuvant treatment - Patient is receiving adjuvant therapy, but has been cancer-free for more than 12 months at the time of COVID-19 diagnosis
