67P - The influence of circulating tumor DNA analysis on response to immunotherapy in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) (ID 603)
12:30 - 13:00 | Author(s): A. Dvir
International guidelines have advocated molecular profiling as part of the standard diagnostic evaluation for advanced NSCLC, with the goal of identifying driver mutations for which effective therapies or clinical trials are available. In advanced NSCLC, immunotherapy demonstrated good response rates with some responses being remarkably durable. Understanding the molecular determinants of response to immunotherapies is a key challenge in oncology. Notably, tumor mutational burden detected by tissue next generation sequencing (NGS) was found to be correlated with response to immune checkpoint inhibitors.
In this retrospective study, data were collected on NSCLC patients treated in multiple medical centers in Israel between 2014 and 2017. We used NGS on cell-free circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) to evaluate whether mutational burden influences the response to immunotherapy in these patients.
Overall, 336 NSCLC patients underwent NGS on ctDNA. Of these 336 patients, 192 (57%) were females and 144 (43%) were males. The average age (range) was 64 (23–103) years. Clinical treatment information is currently available for 117 patients, of whom 50 (43%) received immune check-point inhibitors. Rates of stable disease, partial and complete responses (RECIST criteria), as well as progression-free survival and overall survival will be reported. In addition, to unravel the genomic determinants of response to immunotherapy we will use the blood-derived ctDNA to understand if hypermutated ctDNA is a predictive biomarker of response to immunotherapy.
ctDNA collection was feasible in 336 patients. Prediction model to associate the ctDNA signature with response to immunotherapy will be presented.
