      • Slides


      CheckMate 227 demonstrated significant, clinically meaningful progression-free survival benefit with 1L nivolumab 3 mg/kg every 2 weeks (Q2W) plus low-dose ipilimumab 1 mg/kg Q6W vs chemotherapy in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and tumor mutational burden (TMB) ≥10 mutations/megabase. The dose and schedule for this combination regimen were optimized for 1L NSCLC in CheckMate 012 and further validated in CheckMate 568 and CheckMate 227. Flat dosing of nivolumab (240 mg Q2W) may simplify treatment while providing comparable exposure, and was recently approved for previously treated NSCLC. CheckMate 817 (NCT02869789) is a multi-cohort, open-label phase 3b/4 study evaluating the safety and efficacy of flat-dose nivolumab plus weight-based low-dose ipilimumab in recurrent/metastatic NSCLC. We report safety results from Cohort A, which evaluated this regimen in the 1L setting; updated results will be presented.

      Patients with ECOG PS ≤1 and previously untreated NSCLC were eligible, regardless of tumor programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression and TMB. Nivolumab 240 mg Q2W plus ipilimumab 1 mg/kg Q6W were administered for 2 years or until disease progression/unacceptable toxicity. The primary endpoint was safety assessed by the incidence of grade ≥3 select treatment-related adverse events (TRAEs; defined as AEs of potential immunologic causes).

      Enrollment occurred between October 2016 and August 2017, with 391 patients initiating treatment at 68 academic and community-based centers in Europe and North America. Median age was 65 years and 27.9% of patients had squamous histology. PD-L1 expression was evaluable in 91% of patients; of these, 50% had ≥1% tumor PD-L1 expression. At database lock (March 1, 2018), minimum follow-up was 5.4 months and 34.5% of patients remained on treatment. The median (range) number of nivolumab and ipilimumab doses received were 9 (1–28) and 3 (1–10), respectively. Any grade and grade 3–4 TRAEs occurred in 74.4% and 27.6% of patients, respectively; 14.1% of patients discontinued treatment due to TRAEs. Rates of any grade select TRAEs by category ranged from 1.3% (renal) to 28.4% (skin). The most common grade 3–4 select TRAEs by category were hepatic (4.6%), pulmonary (3.1%), and gastrointestinal (3.1%). Two treatment-related deaths were reported; one due to Guillain-Barré syndrome and one due to rhabdomyolysis leading to heart failure.

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      The safety profile of flat-dose nivolumab plus low-dose ipilimumab was consistent with previous reports of weight-based nivolumab plus low-dose ipilimumab optimized for NSCLC. Toxicities were manageable with no new safety signals identified.
