      Seribantumab (MM-121) is a fully human IgG2 monoclonal antibody that binds to human epidermal growth factor receptor 3 (HER3/ErbB3), to block heregulin (HRG/NRG)-mediated ErbB3 signaling and induce receptor downregulation. This open-label, randomized Phase 1/2 study evaluated safety and efficacy of seribantumab in combination with erlotinib in advanced NSCLC. Here, we report the activity of seribantumab in combination with erlotinib, versus erlotinib alone, in patients with EGFR wild-type tumors and describe the potential predictive power of HRG.

      Patients with EGFR wild-type NSCLC were assigned randomly to receive seribantumab plus erlotinib or erlotinib alone. Patients underwent pre-treatment core needle biopsy, and archived tumor samples were collected to support pre-specified biomarker analyses.

      One hundred twenty-nine patients received seribantumab/erlotinib (n=85) or erlotinib alone (n=44). Median estimated PFS in the unselected ITT population was 8.1 and 7.7 weeks in the experimental and control arm, respectively (HR=0.822; 95% CI, 0.37 to 1.828; P=0.63). In patients whose tumors had detectable HRG mRNA expression, treatment benefit was observed in the seribantumab/erlotinib combination (HR=0.35; 95% CI, 0.16 to 0.76; P=0.008). In contrast, in patients whose tumors were HRG negative, the HR was 2.15 (95% CI, 0.97 to 4.76; P = 0.059).

      The addition of seribantumab to erlotinib did not result in improved PFS in unselected patients. However, pre-defined retrospective exploratory analyses suggest that detectable HRG mRNA levels identified patients who might benefit from seribantumab. An ongoing clinical trial is validating this finding in patients with advanced NSCLC and high HRG mRNA expression (NCT02387216).
