      Background:
      Crizotinib (crz) is registered only for the treatment of patients (pts) with ALK-translocated lung cancer. Crz is also a MET inhibitor. MET is amplified in several malignancies. Activity of crz in MET amplified (+) tumors was explored as part of the French National Cancer Institute (INCa) AcSé program, including both access to tumor molecular diagnosis and an exploratory multi-tumor 2-stage design phase II trial. We report here results in pts with MET + NSCLC.

      Methods:
      MET analysis on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tumor samples was proposed in 170 investigating centers and performed in 28 regional INCa molecular genetic centers. MET+ was explored by FISH in tumor samples showing an IHC score of ≥2+. Pts with a tumor showing > 6 MET copies, whatever the MET/CEN7 ratio, were eligible, providing they were not eligible for any other academic or industry trial evaluating another MET inhibitor. Study treatment consisted in crz 250 mg BID. The objective response rate (ORR) and disease control rate (DCR) were assessed every 8 weeks, using RECIST v1.1.

      Results:
      From Aug. 5, 2013 to Mar. 1, 2015, 25 pts with MET+ NSCLC were enrolled and received crz. Median age was 59 years (range 30–92). Forty-four percent were females, 92% had tumors of non-squamous histology, and 96% presented with metastatic disease at study entry. Median number of prior treatments was 2 (range 0 – 11). Eight pts were still on treatment at the cut-off date, 17 have stopped crz (15 progressive diseases (PD), 1 adverse event (AE), 1 patient’s choice). Among the 18 pts evaluable for response after 8 weeks, we observed 7 partial responses, 6 stable diseases and 5 PD, leading to an ORR of 39% [95% CI:17-64], and a DCR of72% [47-90]. DCR at 6 months was 22% (4 pts out of the 18 evaluable pts). Crz was well tolerated with only 5 grade ≥3 (2 AE + 3 SAEs) and 3 grade 1-2 SAEs. Most common AEs, mainly grade 1 or 2, were nausea (60% of pts), visual disorders (52%), anemia (52%), elevated transaminases (48%) and vomiting (40%).

      Conclusion:
      Nationwide biomarker-driven access to crz for pts with MET+ malignancy is feasible. Crz was well tolerated and showed responses in pretreated MET+ lung cancers. Survival data and duration of response will be presented.
