OA08.02 - Phase II Study of Erlotinib in Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Patients with Leptomeningeal Metastasis (LOGIK1101) (ID 5099)
16:00 - 17:30 | Author(s): Y. Shiraishi
Leptomeningeal metastases (LM) occur in almost 5% of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients (pts) and are associated with a poor prognosis. To date, no prospective study has identified active chemotherapy for NSCLC pts with LM. In retrospective studies, EGFR-TKI treatment is reported to be effective in the treatment of LM. We conducted a multi-center, single-arm phase II trial to evaluate the efficacy of erlotinib in pts with LM.
NSCLC pts with cytologically confirmed LM were eligible and received erlotinib 150mg daily. Overall cytological response rate (ORR; defined “number of pts who achieves complete remission in CSF / number of all pts”), time to LM progression (TTP), overall survival (OS) and pharmacokinetics were analyzed. Under the null hypothesis, the regimen would be rejected if confirmed ORR was 5% or less. This study was closed because of low accrual with only 21 of required 32 pts (66 %) accrued.
From Dec 2011 to May 2015, 21 pts (17 pts with EGFR mutation) were enrolled. CSFs available for EGFR mutation analysis (N=17) were all EGFR T790M negative. ORR was 30 % (95%CI 12 -54 %). Median TTP was 2.3 months. Median OS was 3.1 months. Significantly longer TTP and OS were observed in EGFR-mutant than in EGFR-wild type (P=0.0054 and P<0.0001, respectively). Seven pts survived longer than 6 months. CSF penetration rate (Mean + SD) was 3.3 + 0.8 %. There was no correlation between CSF concentration and clinical efficacy.
Erlotinib treatment for LM is active, especially in EGFR-mutant. Our findings suggest that erlotinib could represent a treatment option for EGFR mutated pts. CSF penetration in LM patients is equivalent to those in previous reports. Table1. Summary of ORR, TPP and OS
