      MA15.02 - Long-Term Safety and Clinical Activity Results from a Phase Ib Study of Erlotinib Plus Atezolizumab in Advanced NSCLC (ID 12095)

      Background

      Patients with EGFR mutation–positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) achieve favorable outcomes with EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs); however, the long-term efficacy of these agents is limited by development of acquired resistance. Atezolizumab (anti–PD-L1 mAb) monotherapy has shown tolerability and durable clinical activity in NSCLC. By selectively targeting PD-L1 to block its interaction with receptors PD-1 and B7.1, atezolizumab can reinvigorate anti-cancer T-cell activity. Thus, combining atezolizumab and erlotinib could result in improved anti-tumor immunity and durable anti-tumor effects. Safety and preliminary clinical activity from a Phase Ib study of erlotinib plus atezolizumab in locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC have been previously reported (Rudin, et al. WCLC 2016). Here we describe updated findings from this study (NCT02013219).

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      EGFR TKI-naive patients with NSCLC were enrolled into a safety-evaluation stage (Stage 1) regardless of EGFR status, and an expansion stage (Stage 2) enrolled patients with EGFR-mutant NSCLC who were previously untreated or treated with 1 prior non–EGFR TKI therapy. A 7-day run-in period with erlotinib 150 mg PO QD was followed by addition of atezolizumab 1200 mg IV q3w. The primary endpoint was safety/tolerability of the combination; secondary endpoints included clinical activity per RECIST v1.1.

      At data cutoff (August 18, 2017), 28 patients (Stage 1, n = 8; Stage 2, n = 20) were evaluable for safety, and the median survival follow-up was 26.0 months (range, 7.8-32.9; Stage 2). The median age was 61 years (range, 47-84), and the most common EGFR mutation was exon 19 deletion (44%). Grade 3 treatment-related AEs (TRAEs) were reported in 43% of patients; no Grade 4 or 5 TRAEs occurred. The most common TRAEs were increased ALT, pyrexia, rash and diarrhea (2 patients each). Serious AEs occurred in 54% of patients; treatment-emergent AEs led to atezolizumab discontinuation in 18% and erlotinib discontinuation in 11%. Clinical activity was evaluated in Stage 2 patients. ORR was 75% (95% CI: 50.9, 91.3), with a median DOR of 16.7 months (range, 4.2-26.0+). Median PFS was 15.4 months (95% CI: 8.4, not estimable [NE]), and median OS was 32.7 months (95% CI: 32.7, NE).

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      Atezolizumab plus erlotinib demonstrated a tolerable safety profile and compared favorably with prior reports of efficacy with erlotinib monotherapy. OS data are expected to mature and improve with longer follow-up; updated clinical and biomarker data will be presented. Further investigation of the combination is warranted to assess its full potential.

      OA12.02 - Updated Antitumor Activity of Crizotinib in Patients with MET Exon 14-Altered Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (ID 13453)

      Background

      MET exon 14 alterations occur in ~3% of non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLCs) and 20–30% of sarcomatoid lung carcinomas. Here we present updated antitumor activity for crizotinib in patients with advanced NSCLC whose tumors are positive for MET exon 14 alterations (hereafter MET exon 14-positive NSCLC), including updated biomarker analyses in circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA).

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      Patients with MET exon 14-positive NSCLC by local molecular profiling were treated with 250 mg crizotinib BID in an expansion cohort of the ongoing PROFILE 1001 study (NCT00585195). Responses were based on derived investigator assessment per RECIST v1.0. Prospective plasma profiling for MET exon 14 alterations in plasma ctDNA was performed (PlasmaSELECT-R64; Personal Genome Diagnostics, Boston, MA).

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      As of Jan 31, 2018, 69 patients (65 response-evaluable) with MET exon 14-positive NSCLC had been treated. Median age was 72 y (range: 34, 91). Tumor histology was: 84% adenocarcinoma, 9% sarcomatoid adenocarcinoma, 4% squamous cell carcinoma and 3% adenosquamous carcinoma. 61% were former-smokers, 38% never-smokers and 1% a current smoker. Median duration of treatment was 7.4 mo (95% CI: 5.5, 9.1), with 29% of patients ongoing. Confirmed responses were 3 CRs and 18 PRs (ORR, 32% [95% CI: 21, 45]); 29 patients had SD as their best overall response (Figure).

      Median time to response was 7.6 weeks (range: 3.7, 16.3). Median DOR was 9.1 mo (95% CI: 6.4, 12.7). Median PFS was 7.3 mo (95% CI: 5.4, 9.1). MET exon 14 alterations were detected in ctDNA from 18/37 (49%) patients with analyzable samples.

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      In patients with MET exon 14-positive advanced NSCLC, crizotinib treatment led to objective responses that were rapid and durable, with CRs in some cases. Plasma ctDNA profiling detected MET exon 14 alterations in a subset of patients who harbor MET exon 14 alterations by tumor testing.
