      In the FLAURA phase 3 study, the third-generation EGFR-TKI osimertinib significantly improved progression-free survival (PFS) vs SoC EGFR-TKIs (gefitinib or erlotinib) in pts with previously untreated Ex19del/L858R (EGFRm) advanced NSCLC (hazard ratio [HR] 0.46 [95% CI 0.37, 0.57]; p < 0.001). Interim overall survival (OS) data was encouraging but not formally statistically significant (HR 0.63 [95% CI 0.45, 0.88]; p = 0.007). Here we report exploratory post-progression outcomes.

      Pts were randomised 1:1 to receive osimertinib (80 mg orally [PO], once daily [QD]) or SoC (gefitinib 250 mg PO QD or erlotinib 150 mg PO QD). Treatment beyond disease progression was allowed if the investigator judged continued clinical benefit; investigators determined subsequent therapy. Pts receiving SoC could cross over to osimertinib after objective disease progression with documented post-progression T790M-positive mutation status.

      At data cutoff, 12 June 2017, 138/279 (49%) and 213/277 (77%) pts discontinued osimertinib and SoC, respectively; 82 (29%) and 129 (47%) received a subsequent treatment: EGFR-TKI-containing, 29 (10%) and 97 (35%; 55 [20%] osimertinib); platinum chemotherapy-containing, 46 (16%) and 27 (10%). Median time (mths) to discontinuation of study treatment or death: osimertinib 20.8 (95% CI 17.2, 24.1) vs SoC 11.5 (10.3, 12.8). Median time (mths) to discontinuation of any EGFR-TKI (study treatment and subsequent EGFR-TKI, not interrupted by non-EGFR-TKI therapy) or death: osimertinib 23.0 (19.5, not calculable [NC]) vs SoC 16.0 (14.8, 18.6). Time-to-event post-progression endpoints all favoured osimertinib (Table).

      aCalculated using the Kaplan-Meier method.bHR and CI were obtained directly from the U and V statistics. The analysis was performed using a log rank test stratified by race (Asian versus non-Asian) and mutation type (Ex19del vs L858R). 2-sided p-value. CI, confidence interval; FST, first subsequent therapy (second-line treatment); HR, hazard ratio; NC, not calculable; PFS2, second progression-free survival (or death) post initiation of second-line treatment (i.e. time from randomisation to second progression on subsequent treatment); TFST, time to first subsequent therapy or death; TSST, time to second subsequent therapy or death; SST, second subsequent therapy; RECIST, Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors version 1.1.

      PFS benefit with osimertinib was preserved throughout time-to-event post-progression endpoints. Step-wise increase of the statistically significant HRs (PFS 0.46, TFST 0.51, PFS2 0.58, TSST 0.60) provides confidence in the interim OS data.
