      Background

      In the Phase 3 PACIFIC study of durvalumab versus placebo in patients with stage III, unresectable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) after concurrent chemoradiotherapy (cCRT), on-treatment pneumonitis or radiation pneumonitis (‘pneumonitis’) occurred in both arms with similar rates of grade 3/4 pneumonitis (durvalumab, 3.4%; placebo, 2.6%). We performed exploratory analyses to further characterize time to onset and duration of pneumonitis and examine its relationship with underlying risk factors, including patient characteristics and prior CRT.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      PACIFIC (NCT02125461) was a randomized, double-blind study of patients with WHO PS 0/1 without progression after ≥2 cycles of platinum-based cCRT. Patients were stratified by age, sex, and smoking history and randomized (2:1) 1–42 days after completing cCRT to durvalumab 10 mg/kg IV Q2W or placebo up to 12 months. Potential associations between the presence of the AE pneumonitis (investigator assessed with review/adjudication by study sponsor) and baseline characteristics or patient disposition were investigated.

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      As of Feb 13, 2017, 709 patients had received treatment; 33.6% on durvalumab and 24.9% on placebo had any-grade pneumonitis. Treatment exposure was similar in patients with or without pneumonitis across both arms. Median time to onset of pneumonitis from treatment start was the same for both durvalumab and placebo, 55.0 days (73.0 and 76.5 days from RT completion). Pneumonitis was self-limited, with median durations of 64.0 and 57.0 days, respectively. Patients with pneumonitis were more likely to be Asian (47.9% vs 17.6%) or have EGFR mutations (11.0% vs 3.8%); however, the proportions of patients with pneumonitis and these risk factors were numerically lower with durvalumab than with placebo (Asian: 44.4% [71/160] vs 57.6% [34/59]; EGFRm: 10.6% [17/160] vs 11.9% [7/59]), suggesting no apparent interaction with treatment. There were no apparent associations of pneumonitis with baseline respiratory disorders, prior RT dose, or prior cisplatin or carboplatin use. Previous induction CT was more commonly associated with the absence of pneumonitis in both treatment arms (durvalumab: 30.1% vs 17.5%; placebo: 31.5% vs 20.3%). The presence of pneumonitis was associated with greater discontinuation due to AEs (durvalumab: 25.6% vs 10.2%; placebo: 18.6% vs 6.8%) regardless of treatment.

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      Rates of pneumonitis were higher in Asian patients and those with EGFRm, as previously reported. Durvalumab did not increase pneumonitis in patients with these risk factors. There were no differences in treatment exposure in patients based on the presence/absence of pneumonitis. Multivariate analyses may further assist in the discernment of etiologic risks.

      Background

      Avelumab is a human anti–PD-L1 IgG1 monoclonal antibody that is an approved treatment for metastatic Merkel cell carcinoma (various regions) and platinum-treated advanced urothelial carcinoma (US). We report findings from a global, open-label, phase 3 trial of avelumab vs docetaxel in patients with advanced NSCLC after platinum failure (NCT02395172).

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      Patients with stage IIIB/IV or recurrent NSCLC with disease progression after platinum doublet therapy were randomized 1:1 to avelumab 10 mg/kg Q2W or docetaxel 75 mg/m2 Q3W, stratified by PD-L1 status (PD-L1+/PD-L1−) and histology (squamous/nonsquamous). The primary endpoint was overall survival (OS) in the PD-L1+ population (expression on ≥1% of tumor cells, assessed using the PD-L1 IHC 73-10 assay).

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      Between April 2015 and February 2017, 792 patients were randomized to receive avelumab or docetaxel, including 264 and 265 with PD-L1+ tumors, respectively; 0.8% vs 7.5% did not receive study treatment. Median follow-up in the avelumab and docetaxel arms was 18.9 and 17.8 months; 15.5% vs 1.5% remained on treatment at data cutoff (November 22, 2017). In the avelumab and docetaxel arms, 39.8% vs 47.5% received subsequent anticancer therapy after discontinuation, including checkpoint inhibitors in 5.7% vs 26.4%, respectively. In the PD-L1+ population, median OS in the avelumab and docetaxel arms was 11.4 vs 10.3 months (hazard ratio [HR], 0.90 [96% CI, 0.72-1.12]; P=0.1627, 1-sided). Pre-planned exploratory analyses based on higher PD-L1 cutoffs showed increased OS with avelumab vs docetaxel, including PD-L1-high (≥80% cutoff, 29% of patients; 17.1 vs 9.3 months; HR, 0.59 [95% CI, 0.42-0.83]; P=.0022, 2-sided) and PD-L1-medium/high (≥50% cutoff, 40% of patients; 13.6 vs 9.2 months; HR, 0.67 [95% CI, 0.51-0.89]; P=0.0052, 2-sided) subgroups. In the PD-L1+ population (≥1% cutoff), ORR was 18.9% vs 11.7% (odds ratio, 1.76 [95% CI, 1.08-2.86]; P=0.0105, 1-sided); median duration of response was not reached with avelumab (95% CI, 9.9-not estimable [NE]) vs 6.9 months with docetaxel (95% CI, 3.5-NE). Overall rates of treatment-related adverse events (AEs) were lower with avelumab than docetaxel, including all grades (63.9% vs 85.8%) and grade ≥3 (9.9% vs 49.3%). Immune-related AEs occurred in 16.5% of avelumab-treated patients (grade ≥3 in 2.8%).

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      Avelumab showed increasing clinical activity in patients who had platinum-treated NSCLC with higher tumor PD-L1 expression; however, the trial did not meet its primary objective of improving OS vs docetaxel in PD-L1+ tumors (≥1% cutoff). OS findings may have been confounded by subsequent checkpoint inhibitor therapy in the docetaxel arm.

      P1.16-04 - Outcomes of Patients < 70 or ≥70 Years of Age in PACIFIC (ID 13012)

      16:45 - 18:00  |  Author(s): Mustafa Özgüroğlu

      • Abstract
      • Slides

      Background

      In the Phase 3 PACIFIC study of durvalumab versus placebo in patients with stage III, unresectable NSCLC without progression after concurrent chemoradiotherapy (cCRT), the co-primary endpoint PFS was significantly longer with durvalumab (stratified HR 0.52, 95% CI, 0.42–0.65; P<0.0001). In a prespecified analysis, PFS benefit with durvalumab was observed regardless of a 65-year age cutoff. However, median age at NSCLC diagnosis is 70 (CA Cancer J Clin, 2014). We therefore performed subgroup analyses to explore outcomes using a 70-year age cutoff.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      PACIFIC (NCT02125461) was a Phase 3, randomized, double-blind, all-comers study of patients with WHO PS 0/1 who did not progress following ≥2 cycles of platinum-based cCRT. Patients were stratified by age, sex, and smoking history and randomized (2:1) 1–42 days after cCRT to receive durvalumab 10 mg/kg IV Q2W or placebo up to 12 months. Co-primary endpoints were PFS (BICR, RECIST v1.1) and OS (not available). Secondary endpoints included ORR, time to death/distant metastasis (TTDM), and safety. Between-treatment endpoint comparisons were performed for patients <70 and ≥70 years.

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      As of Feb 13, 2017, 713 patients were randomized; 78% and 22% were <70 and ≥70 years, respectively. Baseline patient and tumor characteristics were generally well balanced across subgroups. However, patients ≥70 were more likely to be male, have PS 1, and, within the placebo arm, to be Asian. Older patients more commonly received carboplatin-based CT than younger patients. Durvalumab demonstrated PFS benefit compared with placebo, regardless if patients were <70 years (median 16.9 vs 5.6 months, HR=0.53, 95% CI: 0.42–0.67) or ≥70 years (median 12.3 vs 6.1 months, HR=0.62, 95% CI: 0.41–0.95). Durvalumab improved TTDM (<70 years: HR=0.53, 95% CI: 0.39–0.71; ≥70 years: HR=0.66, 95% CI: 0.39–1.13) and ORR (<70 years: 27.6% vs 15.4%; ≥70 years: 31.9% vs 17.6%) regardless of age. Younger patients on durvalumab received treatment longer (median total duration 45.5 vs 36.0 weeks). Regardless of treatment, older patients discontinued more due to AEs (durvalumab: 22.0% vs 13.7%; placebo: 16.1% vs 7.8%) and had more grade 5 AEs (durvalumab: 10.9% vs 2.7%; placebo: 9.1% vs. 4.5%). Among patients receiving durvalumab, older patients experienced more all-cause SAEs (42.6% vs 24.9%) and grade 3/4 AEs (41.6% vs 29.4%) but fewer AESIs (56.4% vs 67.9%) than younger patients.

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      Patients achieved clinical benefit with durvalumab regardless of age. Increased AEs/SAEs observed in older patients across treatments may reflect age/cCRT related morbidity.

      • Slides

      Background

      The Phase 3 PACIFIC study of patients with stage III, unresectable NSCLC without progression after concurrent chemoradiotherapy (cCRT) demonstrated significantly longer PFS with durvalumab versus placebo (stratified HR 0.52; 95% CI 0.42–0.65; P<0.0001). Overall, 26% and 29% in the durvalumab and placebo groups, respectively, received induction chemotherapy (ICT) before cCRT. Here, we report exploratory analyses of baseline characteristics, disposition, and outcomes from this study based on the presence or absence of prior ICT.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      PACIFIC (NCT02125461) was a Phase 3, randomized, double-blind study of patients with WHO PS 0/1 and any tumor PD-L1 status without progression after ≥2 cycles of platinum-based cCRT. Patients were stratified by age, sex and smoking history and randomized (2:1) to durvalumab 10 mg/kg IV Q2W or placebo up to 12 months. Co-primary endpoints were PFS (blinded independent central review, RECIST v1.1) and overall survival (not available). We investigated associations between the presence/absence of ICT and disposition, baseline characteristics, and efficacy and safety endpoints.

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      As of February 13, 2017, 713 patients were randomized; 27% had prior ICT. Baseline characteristics were similar between treatment arms; however, patients with ICT were generally younger, less frequently Asian, had lower incidence of squamous histology, and more often had stage IIIB disease. There were no differences between groups in terms of prior RT dose. PFS benefit with durvalumab was demonstrated irrespective of ICT use (ICT: HR=0.61, 95% CI, 0.41–0.88; no ICT: HR=0.54, 95% CI, 0.42–0.69). Similarly, ORR with durvalumab was numerically higher than with placebo irrespective of ICT use (ICT: 16.1% vs 13.1%; no ICT: 32.9% vs 17.1%). ICT did not affect treatment duration for durvalumab or placebo. Between-treatment safety differences were minimal across subgroups; however, patients with ICT experienced fewer SAEs, treatment-related SAEs and pneumonitis/radiation pneumonitis regardless of treatment arm.

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      Durvalumab demonstrated clinical benefit irrespective of ICT. The safety profile of durvalumab was consistent in patients with or without ICT. A lower rate of toxicity was observed in patients with ICT regardless of treatment arm.

      • Slides

      Background

      In the Phase 3 PACIFIC study of patients with stage III, unresectable NSCLC without progression after concurrent chemoradiotherapy (cCRT), PFS was significantly longer with durvalumab versus placebo (stratified HR 0.52; 95% CI 0.42–0.65; P<0.0001). We report exploratory analyses of PACIFIC outcomes by PD-L1 expression assessed in tumor samples collected prior to cCRT.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      PACIFIC (NCT02125461) was a Phase 3, randomized, double-blind study of patients with WHO PS 0/1 without progression after ≥2 cycles of platinum-based cCRT. Eligibility was irrespective of PD-L1 expression; archived samples were optional for testing (VENTANA PD-L1 [SP263] assay). No samples were obtained after cCRT, prior to infusion with durvalumab or placebo. Patients were randomized (2:1) to durvalumab 10 mg/kg IV Q2W or placebo up to 12 months, stratified by age, sex and smoking history. Co-primary endpoints were PFS (blinded independent central review, RECIST v1.1) and OS (not available). Secondary endpoints included ORR and safety. We investigated associations between subgroups of patients with PD-L1 expression on tumor cells (TC) of <25% or ≥25% and efficacy.

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      As of February 13, 2017, 713 patients were randomized; 451 (63.3%) had known PD-L1 status (TC<25%, 64.7%; TC≥25%, 35.3%; Table). Baseline characteristics and prior therapy (including best response to prior therapy) were generally well balanced between arms across both PD-L1 subgroups. PFS benefit with durvalumab was demonstrated irrespective of PD-L1 status (HR 0.59; 95% CI, 0.43–0.82 for TC<25% and HR 0.41; 95% CI, 0.26–0.65 for TC≥25%) (Table). ORR was greater with durvalumab compared to placebo regardless of PD-L1 status (Table). The overall safety profile of durvalumab in each PD-L1 subgroup was consistent with the ITT population treated with durvalumab.

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      Durvalumab demonstrated clinical benefit and had a well-tolerated, manageable safety profile irrespective of PD-L1 status obtained from archival tumor samples prior to cCRT.

      Background

      In the global, Phase 3 PACIFIC study (Antonia 2017; NCT02125461), durvalumab significantly improved progression-free survival (PFS) versus placebo in Stage III, unresectable NSCLC patients without progression after chemoradiotherapy (CRT) (stratified HR, 0.52; 95% CI, 0.42–0.65; P<0.001). This was the first major advance in this disease setting for many years. Here we report the second primary endpoint overall survival (OS) for PACIFIC.

      Patients with WHO PS 0/1 (any PD-L1 tumor status) who received ≥2 cycles of platinum-based CRT were randomized (2:1) 1–42 days post-CRT to durvalumab 10 mg/kg IV Q2W or placebo up to 12 months, stratified by age, sex, and smoking history. Primary endpoints were PFS from randomization (blinded independent central review; RECIST v1.1) and OS (interim analysis reported). Secondary endpoints included time to death or distant metastasis (TTDM) and PFS2 (time to second progression) from randomization and safety. Time to first/second subsequent therapy or death (TFST/TSST) were supportive assessments for PFS/PFS2.

      Between May 2014 and April 2016, 713 patients were randomized of whom 709 received treatment (durvalumab, n=473; placebo, n=236). As of March 22, 2018 (data cutoff), median follow-up duration was 25.2 months (range, 0.2–43.1). After discontinuation, 41.0% and 54.0% in the durvalumab and placebo groups received subsequent anticancer therapy; overall, 8.0% and 22.4% received additional immunotherapy. Durvalumab significantly improved OS versus placebo (stratified HR 0.68, 99.73% CI, 0.469–0.997; P=0.00251), with the median not reached (NR; 95% CI, 34.7 months–NR) and 28.7 months (95% CI, 22.9–NR), respectively. Durvalumab improved OS in all pre-specified subgroups. Updated PFS remained similar (stratified HR 0.51, 95% CI, 0.41–0.63), with medians of 17.2 and 5.6 months with durvalumab and placebo, respectively. Durvalumab improved the updated TTDM (stratified HR 0.53, 95% CI, 0.41–0.68), as well as PFS2 (stratified HR 0.58, 95% CI, 0.46–0.73), TFST (stratified HR 0.58, 95% CI, 0.47–0.72) and TSST (stratified HR 0.63, 95% CI, 0.50–0.79). Within the durvalumab and placebo groups, 30.5% and 26.1% had grade 3/4 any-causality AEs, 15.4% and 9.8% discontinued due to AEs, and no new safety signals were identified.

      Durvalumab demonstrated statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement in OS compared with placebo, supported by secondary endpoints such as PFS2. PACIFIC is the first study to show a survival advantage following CRT in this population, providing compelling evidence for the unprecedented benefit of durvalumab treatment as the standard of care.
