      Background:
      Ceritinib is a next-generation anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) inhibitor approved for the treatment of patients with ALK+ non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who are treatment-naive or have progressed on crizotinib at the recommended dose of 750 mg/day under fasted state. Gastrointestinal (GI) adverse events (AEs), eg, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, are common with ceritinib 750 mg/day under fasting conditions. ASCEND‑8 study, (NCT02299505) evaluated alternative methods of ceritinib administration, utilizing potential benefit of dosing ceritinib with food to reduce GI toxicity, while maintaining the pharmacokinetic exposure at lower doses. Based on the primary pharmacokinetics analysis previously presented (n=137; WCLC 2016), ceritinib 450 mg with food had similar exposure and a more favorable GI safety profile vs ceritinib 750 mg fasted in patients with ALK+ NSCLC.

      Method:
      This is a multicenter, randomized, 3-arm (450 mg or 600 mg ceritinib taken with low-fat meal vs 750 mg ceritinib taken in fasted state), open-label, phase 1 study (ASCEND-8). Patients were eligible if they had stage IIIB or IV ALK+ advanced NSCLC, were aged 18 years or older, who were either previously treated with chemotherapy and/or crizotinib or treatment naive. We plan to report the updated safety (n=228) and preliminary efficacy for treatment-naïve patients (ALK+ by immunohistochemistry [IHC]) who were randomized at least 18 weeks before the cutoff date (March 28, 2017; n=79). Updated analysis is planned to be made available by August 2017 and the following data will be included at the time of final abstract submission: patient disposition; patient demographics; disease characteristics and prior therapies; overall response rate and duration of response by blinded independent review committee (BIRC; key secondary endpoints) in treatment-naïve patients (ALK+ by IHC) randomized at least 18 weeks prior to the cut-off date; progression-free survival per BIRC in treatment-naïve patients (ALK+ by IHC) randomized at least 18 weeks prior to the cut-off date; updated safety results with detailed information on GI (diarrhea, nausea, vomiting) and liver (alanine transaminase/aspartate transaminase) toxicities.
