      P2.01-33 - Open-Label, Biomarker-Directed Platform Study in NSCLC Patients Who Progressed on an Anti-PD-(L)1 Containing Therapy (HUDSON) (ID 13743)

      Background

      Immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI)-containing regimens have significantly improved survival outcomes in first- and second-line NSCLC. However, the majority of patients do not respond or have non-durable responses to anti-programmed cell death-1/programmed cell death-ligand 1 (anti-PD-1/PD-L1) containing therapy (primary resistance) or progress during anti-PD-1/PD-L1 containing therapy (acquired resistance). HUDSON addresses the urgent need to identify treatments and understand ICI resistance for this emerging ICI-resistant population.

      HUDSON is a multi-centre, international multi-arm umbrella study that will 1) evaluate therapies to reverse ICI resistance and 2) define mechanisms of ICI resistance in NSCLC patients who have progressed following standard-of-care platinum and ICI-based therapies. HUDSON is a platform study that consists of two groups; a biomarker matched and a biomarker non-matched group. Within the biomarker matched group, different cohorts will test 1) homologous recombination repair (HRR) defects and 2) LKB1 aberration for response to durvalumab and olaparib (PARP inhibitor), 3) ATM deficiency for response to durvalumab and AZD6738 (ATR inhibitor) and 4) RICTOR amplification for response to durvalumab and vistusertib (mTORC1/2 inhibitor). In the biomarker non-matched group, cohorts will test durvalumab in combination with either i) olaparib, ii) AZD9150 (STAT3 inhibitor) or iii) AZD6738, in patients with primary and acquired resistance to a prior ICI. Allocation to a cohort is informed by the tumour molecular profile according to a pre-specified assignment algorithm. New cohorts will be added as new translational hypotheses are established. Translational research will be performed on serial peripheral blood samples (including ctDNA) and tumour biopsies. HUDSON enrols ICI-resistant patients in a signal searching manner. Biomarker matched and non-matched groups will be opened simultaneously, and all eligible patients can be allocated a treatment option irrespective of their tumour profile. Enrolment is ongoing, clinical trial information: NCT03334617.

      P2.13-40 - ABP 215 and Bevacizumab in NSCLC Patients: Time Course and Magnitude of Response in the Phase 3 Comparative Trial (MAPLE) (ID 13813)

      16:45 - 18:00  |  Author(s): Michael Thomas

      Background

      ABP 215 (MVASITM (bevacizumab-awwb)) has been approved as the first biosimilar to bevacizumab. Here we present the results of efficacy analyses from the phase 3 comparative trial of ABP 215 and bevacizumab.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      The phase 3 study was a double-blind trial designed to demonstrate clinical equivalence of ABP 215 and bevacizumab (BEV) in patients with NSCLC. Adult patients with non-squamous NSCLC receiving first-line chemotherapy with carboplatin and paclitaxel were randomized 1:1 to ABP 215 or BEV (15 mg/kg IV Q3W for up to 6 cycles). Clinical evaluations included efficacy, safety, PK, and immunogenicity. Results of the primary analysis have been reported previously. A post hoc analysis of individual patient response data was performed using independent, central radiologists’ evaluations of the time course and magnitude of tumor response. Imaging assessments of tumor response were completed using RECIST v1.1 to generate waterfall plots for the magnitude of target lesion response.

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      The proportion of patients with an objective response was similar between ABP 215 and BEV treatment groups by week 7, 13, 19, and overall. By week 19, 36.9% of patients receiving ABP 215 and 39.2% of patients receiving BEV had a first objective response. The risk difference in ORR by week 19 was -2.6% (95% CI: -10.05%, 4.93%). Both groups had a highly similar magnitude of target lesion response, as depicted in the Figure below.fig 1.jpg

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      The analyses of the time to response and the magnitude of reduction of target lesions in the phase 3 comparative trial provide further support for clinical similarity of ABP 215 and bevacizumab.

      P3.16-02 - Phase III Study of Canakinumab (ACZ885) as Adjuvant Therapy in Patients with Surgically Resected NSCLC (ID 12069)

      12:00 - 13:30  |  Author(s): Michael Thomas

      • Abstract

      Background

      Preclinical and clinical data suggest that cytokines such as interleukin (IL)-1β can promote angiogenesis and tumor growth, and are essential to tumor invasiveness. Canakinumab (ACZ885) is a high-affinity human IgGκ anti-IL-1β monoclonal antibody approved for patients with various IL-1–driven auto-inflammatory diseases. In the Phase III Canakinumab Anti-Inflammatory Thrombosis Outcomes Study (CANTOS) in patients with atherosclerosis, canakinumab was associated with a significant reduction in the incidence of fatal and non-fatal lung cancer in patients with increased high-sensitivity C-reactive protein levels. ACZ885T2301 (NCT03447769) is evaluating the efficacy and safety of adjuvant canakinumab versus placebo in patients with surgically resected non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      This Phase III, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study is enrolling patients (≥18 years, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status ≤1) with completely resected (R0) American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC)/Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) v.8 stages II−IIIA and IIIB (T >5 cm and N2) NSCLC, who have completed standard-of-care adjuvant treatments, including cisplatin-based chemotherapy and mediastinal radiation therapy (if applicable). Prior treatment with neoadjuvant chemotherapy or radiotherapy is not permitted. Approximately 1500 patients will be randomized 1:1 to receive canakinumab (200 mg every 3 weeks [Q3W], subcutaneous [s.c.]) or placebo (Q3W, s.c.) on Day 1 of 21-day cycles for 18 cycles or until disease recurrence, unacceptable toxicity, treatment discontinuation at the discretion of the investigator or patient, death, or loss to follow-up. Following baseline screening, imaging assessment will be performed every 12 weeks for the first year (treatment phase) following Cycle 1 Day 1, then every 26 weeks during Years 2 and 3, and annually during Years 4 and 5 (post-treatment surveillance phase). Randomization will be stratified by AJCC/UICC v.8 stage, tumor histology, and region.

      The primary objective is to compare disease-free survival (DFS) in the canakinumab versus placebo arms, as determined by local investigator assessment. Secondary objectives include a comparison of the two treatment groups with respect to overall survival (key secondary objective), lung cancer-specific survival, safety, pharmacokinetics and immunogenicity of canakinumab, and patient-reported outcomes. Exploratory objectives include assessment of the relationship between pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, safety, and efficacy, and evaluation of correlation between cytokines/soluble markers and efficacy endpoints. Enrollment is ongoing.
