      Background:
      ACY-241, an oral inhibitor of histone deacetylase 6, has demonstrated activity in preclinical NSCLC models in combination with immunotherapy. The objectives of this study are to evaluate safety, dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs), the maximum-tolerated dose (MTD), and preliminary antitumor activity of ACY-241 in combination with the immune checkpoint inhibitor nivolumab.

      Method:
      In the 3+3 dose-escalation design, previously treated patients with advanced NSCLC and ECOG PS of 0 or 1 will receive ACY-241 on days 1 to 28 of each 28-day cycle at 3 dose levels (180, 360, and 480 mg) in combination with nivolumab 240 mg on day 15 of cycle 1 and days 1 and 15 of each subsequent cycle. Antitumor activity will be assessed per RECIST v1.1 and immune-related response criteria (irRC).

      Result:
      As of 16 June 2017, 13 patients have been treated in the 3 dose-escalation cohorts. All patients had received first-line treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy. The median age of all patients was 66 years, 62% were male, 54% had an ECOG PS of 0, 54% had stage IV disease, and 85% had adenocarcinoma (15% had squamous histology). No DLTs were observed in the 180- or 360-mg ACY-241 cohorts. The 480-mg cohort is currently under investigation. The most common all-grade adverse events (AEs) in all cohorts were cough (15%), arthralgia (15%), and fatigue (15%, including grade 3 in 1 patient). One patient experienced a grade 3 cerebrovascular accident related to a brain metastasis but unrelated to study drug. No immune-related AEs have been observed. Six patients were evaluable for response: 2 experienced objective responses (1 complete and 1 partial); 2 patients had stable disease; 2 patients had disease progression. Two patients were not evaluable for efficacy, and 5 patients have not yet undergone a response assessment.

      Conclusion:
      No DLTs have been observed with ACY-241 at 180 or 360 mg. Preliminary antitumor activity has been observed with the combination treatment. Updated pharmacokinetic data will be presented at the meeting. NCT02635061
