      • Slides


      Limited stage small-cell lung cancer (LS-SCLC), which represents ∼30% of newly diagnosed SCLC, remains an area of high unmet medical need. Standard of care, which has not changed for several decades, consists of curative intent platinum-based chemotherapy concurrent with radiotherapy (cCRT) followed by prophylactic brain irradiation (PCI) and observation. Despite good response to cCRT, outcomes remain poor, with median progression-free survival (PFS) ∼15 months and overall survival (OS) ∼25 months. Durvalumab (D) is a selective, high-affinity, human IgG1 monoclonal antibody (mAb) that blocks programmed cell death ligand-1 binding to programmed cell death-1 and CD80. Tremelimumab (T) is a selective human IgG2 mAb against CTLA-4. D demonstrated a PFS and OS advantage over placebo in locally advanced NSCLC following cCRT. D and D + T demonstrated a tolerable safety profile and antitumour activity in pretreated extensive stage SCLC. The ADRIATIC trial (NCT03703297) will assess if treatment with D ± T is beneficial vs placebo in patients (pts) with LS-SCLC who have not progressed following cCRT.

      ADRIATIC is a Phase 3, randomised, double-blind, multicentre, placebo-controlled international trial. Pts (N∼600) will be randomised 1:1:1 to receive D + placebo T, D + T, or dual placebo, stratified by Stage (I/II vs III) and receipt of PCI at the investigator’s discretion (yes vs no). Eligible pts must have confirmed inoperable Stage I–III LS-SCLC; WHO/ECOG PS 0/1; and completed 4 cycles of cCRT with a response of stable disease or better within 1–42 days prior to randomisation. Pts will receive the assigned treatment until clinical, RECIST v1.1-defined progressive disease, intolerable toxicity or for a maximum of 24 months, whichever comes first. Primary objectives are PFS and OS for D ± T vs placebo. Key secondary endpoints include health-related quality of life, and safety and tolerability. Recruitment is ongoing
