OA08.06 - Brigatinib Activity in Patients with ALK+ NSCLC and Intracranial CNS Metastases in Two Clinical Trials (ID 4374)
16:00 - 17:30 | Author(s): J. Haney
Patients treated with crizotinib often experience disease progression in the brain. Brigatinib, an investigational next-generation ALK inhibitor, is being evaluated in an ongoing phase 1/2 trial (Ph1/2) and an ongoing pivotal phase 2 trial (ALTA).
In Ph1/2, patients with advanced malignancies, including ALK+ NSCLC, received 30–300 mg brigatinib per day. In ALTA, patients with crizotinib-resistant advanced ALK+ NSCLC received 90 mg qd (arm A) or 180 mg qd with a 7-day lead-in at 90 mg (arm B). Efficacy (in both trials) and safety (in ALTA) are reported for ALK+ NSCLC patients with brain metastases at baseline.
In Ph1/2 and ALTA, 50/79 (63%; IRC-assessed) and 154/222 (69%; investigator-assessed) of ALK+ NSCLC patients, respectively, had baseline brain metastases. In Ph1/2 (n=50), median age was 53 years, 76% received prior chemotherapy, and 8% were crizotinib-naive. In ALTA (n=154), median age was 52 years; 75% received prior chemotherapy. As of November 16, 2015, 25/50 (50%) patients were receiving brigatinib in Ph1/2; as of February 29, 2016, 101/154 (66%) patients were receiving brigatinib in ALTA. For patients with measurable lesions, confirmed iORR was 53% in Ph1/2 and 42%/67% in ALTA A/B (Table). Among patients with only nonmeasurable lesions (Ph1/2, n=31; ALTA A/B, n=54/n=55), 35% had confirmed complete resolution of lesions in Ph1/2; 7%/18% had confirmed complete resolution in ALTA A/B. For all evaluable patients with baseline brain metastases, median intracranial PFS was 15.6 months in Ph1/2 (n=46) and 15.6/12.8 months in ALTA A/B (n=80/n=73). Most common treatment-emergent adverse events in ALTA in patients with baseline brain metastases (n=151 treated): nausea (A/B, 32%/43%), headache (30%/30%), diarrhea (18%/36%), cough (21%/30%), vomiting (25%/26%); grade ≥3 (excluding neoplasm progression): increased blood CPK (1%/11%), hypertension (4%/7%), increased lipase (3%/3%), pneumonia (1%/4%).
Brigatinib has demonstrated substantial clinical activity in ALK+ NSCLC patients with brain metastases in both Ph1/2 and ALTA.
