      SCLC is featured by both a rapid response and progression during/after standard upfront therapy. Thus, maintenance strategies emerged as potential treatment opportunities, although to date all drugs failed to significantly improve prognosis. SCLC cells harbor a neuroendocrine phenotype, frequently expressing somatostatine (SST) receptors. This study aimed to investigate the efficacy of somatostatine (SST) analogue Lanreotide (LAN) as a maintenance strategy for SCLC patients (pts) after response to standard upfront treatment.

      A multicentre, randomized, open-label, no-profit national trial was conducted, randomizing (1:1) SCLC (limited/extended disease, L/ED) pts expressing SST receptors (by SST receptor scintigraphy) with objective response (CR or PR) after upfront platinum-based chemotherapy plus/minus radiotherapy to receive maintenance LAN 120 mg subcutaneously every 28 days, up to progressive disease (PD) for 1 year (Arm A), versus observation (Arm B). Primary end-point was 1-year Progression-Free Survival (PFS). Primary intention-to-treat (ITT) analysis was planned (power: 80%; 2-tailed alpha-error: 5%) after 47 PFS events.

      Seventy-one pts (median age 66 [37-82]; male/female 72/28%; L/ED 39/61%; ECOG-PS 0-1/2 97/3%; previous best response CR/PR 6/94%) were randomized in 9 Italian centers. Median time from diagnosis and end-of-1[st] line to inclusion was 5.7 months (3-160) and 30 days (0-119), respectively. Median number of LAN doses and treatment duration (Arm A) was 4 (1-12) and 83 days (1-392), respectively. With a median follow-up of 9.4 months and 62 events, median PFS was 3.6 (95% CI 3.2-3.9) versus 2.3 months (95% CI 1.7-2.9), for Arm A and B (log-rank p=0.11; HR 1.51, 95% CI 0.90-2.50), with a 1-year PFS of 10.3% versus 7.3%, respectively. At the cox-proportional multivariate modelling, stage (ED versus LD, HR 2.88 [95% CI 1.64-5.04, p<0.0001) and treatment arm (B versus A, HR 1.63 [95% CI 0.97-2.72], p=0.06) were independent predictors for PFS. Median PFS of arm A and B was 7.0 [95% CI <1-13.5] and 3.8 months [95% CI <1-8.6] in LD pts (p=0.21), and 3.0 (95% CI 2.2-3.8) and 2.2 (95% 1.7-2.7) in ED pts (p=0.19). Median OS was 9.5 (95% CI 4.8-14.3) and 4.7 months (95% CI 1.7-16.6), for Arm A and B (log-rank p=0.47), respectively. LAN was well-tolerated: serious treatment-related adverse events were grade 3 abdominal pain and electrolyte disorder in overall 2 pts.

      Although the primary end-point was not met, the overall efficacy of LAN as a maintenance strategy after response to standard upfront treatment for SCLC deserves future investigations, particularly in pts with LD.
