213O - Nintedanib + pemetrexed/cisplatin in malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM): Phase II biomarker data from the LUME Meso study (ID 206)
11:00 - 12:30 | Author(s): A. Nowak
The randomised Phase II/III LUME-Meso study is evaluating nintedanib + pemetrexed/cisplatin versus placebo + pemetrexed/cisplatin (≤6 cycles), followed by nintedanib or placebo maintenance, in chemo-naïve MPM. In the Phase II part, nintedanib treatment led to improved progression-free survival (PFS; hazard ratio [HR] = 0.54; p = 0.010) and a trend for longer overall survival (OS; HR = 0.77; p = 0.319) compared with placebo. Patients with epithelioid tumours derived greatest benefit. Plasma angiogenic factors and genomic markers were explored for potential associations with treatment outcome in the Phase II epithelioid population.
Baseline plasma levels of 58 angiogenic factors were analysed by multiplex immunoassay (Human AngiogenesisMAP®, Myriad RBM). Genes implicated in the nintedanib mode of action and/or mesothelioma pathophysiology (VEGFR1, VEGFR3 and mesothelin) were evaluated for known single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Biomarker associations with PFS/OS treatment effects were analysed by Cox regression and interaction tests with false-discovery rate (FDR) adjustment. Analyses were exploratory and hypothesis generating.
Angiogenic factor and genomic data were available for 71 and 67 patients, respectively, in the epithelioid population (n = 77). Of the angiogenic factors evaluated, only endoglin showed a possible trend for association with both PFS and OS improvement, with potentially greater benefit in patients with low plasma levels. Major homozygous genotypes for two VEGFR3 SNPs (rs307821 G/G and rs307826 A/A) showed weak association with OS effect, while the VEGFR1 SNP rs9582036 A/A genotype was potentially correlated with PFS benefit. However, all biomarker treatment associations were limited by small subgroup size (especially for minor genotypes) and FDR-adjusted interaction tests were not significant.
These first biomarker results for nintedanib-treated MPM showed potential signals for greater PFS/OS benefits in patients with low plasma endoglin and major homozygous VEGFR1/3 genotypes, but no biomarkers showed clear and significant association with nintedanib efficacy.
