      Background

      Brain metastases (BM) are frequent in NSCLC. Unfortunately, patients with (untreated) BM are often excluded from ICI trials so that their outcome on ICI is largely unknown..

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      Retrospective data collection of all consecutive advanced ICI treated NSCLC patients in 6 centers (5 French, 1 Dutch) (nov 2012 – march 2018). Active BM was defined as non-irradiated new and/or growing lesions on brain imaging < 6 weeks before ICI start. Progression free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS) and site of progression on ICI was collected.

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      945 patients included: 63% male, 83% WHO PS 0-1, median age 64 years, 73% non-squamous, 4% targetable driver mutations, 33% known PD-L1 (65% ≥1% expression). ICI treatment was median 2nd line (range 1-12), 94% had monotherapy PD-(L)1 inhibition. 241 patients (26%) had BM, 68% had previous cranial irradiation, 40% had active BM. BM patients were significantly younger than others (61 vs 66 years), had more adenocarcinoma (78 vs 62%), more organs involved (median 3 vs 2), a poorer PS (0-1: 76 vs 85%) and more steroids at baseline (26 vs 9%). Median follow-up: 15 months. Median (95% CI) PFS and OS without and with BM were 2 (2-3) vs 2 (1-2) months and 13 (9-16) vs 9 (7-13) months, respectively. In multivariate analysis, > 2 metastatic sites, PS ≥2 and steroids use were associated with worse PFS and OS, BM were not (table 1). In univariate analysis of BM patients, active BM were not associated with worse outcome compared to stable BM (HR PFS 0.98 (p=0.66), HR OS 0.93 (p=0.92)). Progressing BM patients had more often brain PD and a dissociated response (not specifically brain dissociated) on ICI (40 vs 12% and 13 vs 7%, respectively).

      Factor PFS HR (95% CI) p-value OS HR (95% CI) p-value
      Age > 65 vs ≤ 65 1.02 (0.87-1.20) 0.79 1.11 (0.92-1.34) 0.29
      Smoking yes vs no 0.53 (0.41-0.69) <0.001 0.81 (0.59-1.12) 0.20

      BM yes vs no 1.05 (0.88-1.26) 0.58 0.96 (0.77-1.19) 0.70

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      BM, treated or active, do not negatively impact outcome on ICI although BM failure is more common in these patients.

      • Slides

      Background

      PCI is considered standard of care in limited-stage small-cell lung cancer (LS-SCLC) patients. However the impact of the dose and fractionation of thoracic radiotherapy (RT) on the risk of developing brain metastasis (BM) has not been evaluated prospectively.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      CONVERT is an international, phase 3 trial that randomly assigned patients to receive twice-daily (BD 45Gy in 30 fractions) or once-daily (OD 66Gy in 33 fractions) RT starting on day 22 of chemotherapy (CT) cycle 1 (NCT00433563). PCI was offered, if indicated. Data on thoracic and brain RT delivery and timing, rate of BM and overall survival (OS) in patients treated with PCI was analysed. The association of the risk of developing BM/OS and predictor variables, using a competing risk regression model developed by Fine and Gray for BM or the standard Cox proportional hazards model for OS, was investigated.

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      Of 547 patients recruited to the study, 449 (82%) received PCI after completion of CTRT. PCI was delivered to 220/273 participants (81%) in the BD group and 229/270 in the OD group (85%; p=0.49). Pre-CTRT brain imaging consisted of CT-scan in 356/449 patients (79%) and MRI in 83/449 (18%) patients. Total median PCI dose was 25 Gy in both BD and OD groups (p=0.74). PCI was delivered later after CT in the OD group compared to the BD group (median days post CT 37 vs. 35 days, respectively; p=0.04). In patients who received PCI, 75 (17%) developed BM (35 [8%] in OD and 40 [9%] in BD) and 173 (39%) other extracranial progression. In the univariate analysis, GTV was associated with an increased risk of BM (HR: 1.37 [95%CI 1.09-1.73]; p=0.007) or other radiological progression events (HR: 1.43 [95%CI 1.11-1.85]; p=0.006), whereas in a multivariate analysis both GTV and PS were associated with either progression type. The median OS of patients treated with PCI was 29 months (95%CI 25.8-35.7). Median OS was 28 months in BD (95%CI 22-35) and 31 months in OD (95%CI 27-52; p=0.1). In the univariate analysis of OS, PCI timing from end of CT, weight loss >10%, and thoracic GTV were prognostic factors associated with OS. In the multivariate analysis, only thoracic GTV was associated with OS. Delay between end of CT and PCI was not associated with OS (p=0.2).

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      Patients receiving OD or BD thoracic RT have the same risk of developing BM. Larger tumours are associated with a higher risk of BM.

      P1.01-07 - Immune-Related Pneumonitis in NSCLC Patients Treated with Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors (ICI): Impact of Previous Thoracic Radiotherapy (ID 12805)

      16:45 - 18:00  |  Author(s): Cecile Le Pechoux

      • Abstract

      Background

      Pneumonitis is a potentially lethal side effect of immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI), occurring in 1–5% of patients enrolled in clinical trials. Little is known about the interactions between ICI and previous thoracic radiation. This is the aim of the present study.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      Between December 2012 and November 2017, 318 consecutive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients received ICI in our Institution and their charts were retrospectively analyzed. Primary endpoint was to determine whether previous radiotherapy had an effect on pulmonary toxicity. Pulmonary toxicity was retrospectively assessed by Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.0.

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      Median follow-up was 32.8 months [95%CI: 5-190]. Median age at the start of ICI was 63 years. 205 patients (64,5%) were males, 103 (32,4%) smokers and 250 (78,6%) with PS ≤1; 206 (64,8%) had adenocarcinoma and 76 (23,9%) squamous; 79 (24,8%) were KRAS mutated, 18 (5,5%) EGFR mutated and 5 (1,6%) ALK positive. PDL1 was ≥ 1% by immunohistochemistry in 86 (27%), negative in 37 (11,6%) and unknown in 196 (61,3%) patients. ICI treatment was median 3rd line (range: 1-12), 89,4% monotherapy PD-(L)1 inhibition.

      72 patients (22,6%) received a thoracic RT: 62 out of the 72 RT patients (87,5%) were irradiated with a curative intent. 53 patients (73,6% of the RT patients) received thoracic 3D-conformal RT or intensity modulated RT (normo- or mildly hypofractionated), whereas 9 received SBRT.

      16,7% of the RT patients (12/72) showed a G1-4 immune-related pneumonitis (with a G=>3 of 11,1%), whereas for never-irradiated patients the G1-3 rate of immune-related pneumonitis was 2,4% (6/246), with only 1 G3 toxicity observed and no G>4 (t-test, p 0,001).

      Median interval between the onset of the immune-related pneumonitis and the end of the RT was 22,4 months.

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      NSCLC patients treated with ICI may be at higher risk of developing immune-related pneumonitis when previously treated with curative-intent thoracic RT.

      P1.01-19 - Efficacy of Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors in EGFR Mutated Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer with Leptomeningeal Metastases. (ID 13820)

      16:45 - 18:00  |  Author(s): Cecile Le Pechoux

      • Abstract
      • Slides

      Background

      Leptomeningeal dissemination (LM) in patients with non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) is usually associated with dismal prognosis. However, survival data and optimal management of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) in EGFR-mutated (EGFRm) patients (pts) are unknown.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      Pts with EGFRm NSCLC with LM treated in 2 institutions were included. Clinical, pathological and radiological data were retrospectively collected. We performed overall survival (OS) analysis from LM diagnosis. We assessed survival, clinical response rate (CRR) and disease control rate (DCR; stable disease > 2 months or clinical response) in patients who received a subsequent TKI after experiencing LM progression with first-line TKI.

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      Seventy pts were included between Apr. 2003 and Feb. 2018. Median age was 54 [26-79], 60 (85%) were non-smokers, 51 (73%) female and median number of prior systemic treatments before LM diagnosis was 2 [1-7].

      Median OS from LM diagnosis was 7 months (m) [95% CI 6-9], with a 1 year-OS of 29%. Pts received a median of 2 [1-6] lines of subsequent systemic therapy and 19 had additional intrathecal treatment.

      At first LM progression, 40 pts received subsequent TKI treatment with a median PFS of 3m [95% CI 2-not reached]. DCR and CRR were 73% and 38%, respectively. In patients without T790M mutation (N=36), median OS was 7 months [95% CI 4-7] with 2nd-line erlotinib (N=21) and 3 months [2-17] with 2nd-line afatinib or gefitinib (N=5). Eight patients received high-dose erlotinib as 2nd-line treatment after prior erlotinib with a median OS of 3 months [1-3] and a DCR of 75%. Four patients with T790M mutation received 2nd-line osimertinib with a median OS of 10 months [6-10] and a DCR of 100%.

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      Pts with LM from EGFRm NSCLC have prolonged survival with 1st generation TKI. Second-line erlotinib after LM progression is an efficient approach in T790M-negative pts. Erlotinib dose increase is a suitable strategy in erlotinib-refractory T790M-negative pts.

      P1.14-04 - Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy for Pleural Recurrences of Thymoma (ID 14075)

      16:45 - 18:00  |  Presenting Author(s): Cecile Le Pechoux

      • Abstract
      • Slides

      Background

      Pleural recurrences are not uncommon as a result of thymoma evolution; yet there is no therapeutic standard for their treatment. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and tolerability of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for the treatment of pleural metastasis.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      A single institution retrospective study of the patients treated with SBRT using Novalis and VMAT, with doses of 30Gy in 5 fractions or 40Gy in 10 fractions. Treatment responses were evaluated using TDM and/or TEP TDM

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      In the period 2014-2017, 10 patients (6 women, 4 men) with a median age of 51 and a total of 21 pleural recurrences were treated with SBRT. Initial Masaoka-Koga stages were: 1 I, 3 IIb, 3 III, 2 IVa and 1 unknown. Nine of them had previously been treated for other pleural recurrences (7 had surgery, 2 conformational RT and 3 chemotherapy).

      All patients were treated for one to three recurrence locations, either successively or at the same time. At the time of last follow-up, only one patient had died following the metastatic evolution of their thymoma.

      With a median follow-up for the lesions of 20 months, local control was very good, since all lesions were reduced to a smaller, non-progressive mass or in complete metabolic response.

      No patient developed Grade 3 or higher acute or late toxicity.

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      Treatment of pleural recurrences of thymoma using SBRT with moderate doses allowed for good local control without increased toxicity, constituting a good alternative to surgery. This treatment could furthermore delay the use of chemotherapy.
