      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): Cheng Zheng

      • Abstract


      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).

      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.
