      82TiP - IMpower030: Phase III study evaluating neoadjuvant treatment of resectable stage II-IIIB non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with atezolizumab (atezo) + chemotherapy (ID 183)

      • Abstract

      Background

      A standard of care for resectable early-stage NSCLC is surgery alone or in combination with adjuvant or neoadjuvant platinum-based doublet chemotherapy (PT-DC). Still, 30%-70% of patients develop recurrence and die from disease progression, highlighting the need for more effective treatments. Atezo, an anti–programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) antibody that restores anti-tumour immunity, has shown promising efficacy as monotherapy and in combination with chemotherapy in advanced NSCLC. It is hypothesised that the combination of atezo and PT-DC may provide clinical benefit in the neoadjuvant setting by enhancing cancer cell killing and eradicating micrometastases, reducing the risk of disease recurrence. The objective of IMpower030 (NCT03456063) is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of atezo in combination with PT-DC as neoadjuvant treatment for patients with resectable early-stage NSCLC.

      IMpower030 is a global, Phase III, double-blind, randomized study in patients with histologically or cytologically confirmed, resectable stage II, IIIA, or select IIIB (T3N2) NSCLC (per AJCC/UICC, 8th ed). Study inclusion requires measurable disease per RECIST v1.1, ECOG PS of 0/1 and eligibility for R0 resection with curative intent and PT-DC. Patients who had received prior therapy for lung cancer or present with nonsquamous NSCLC with activating EGFR mutations or ALK translocation are excluded. Patients will be randomized to receive 4 cycles of neoadjuvant atezo (1200 mg Q3W, Arm A) or placebo (Arm B) in combination with an investigator-selected PT-DC regimen. Following unblinding, patients in Arm A will receive adjuvant atezo treatment for ≤ 16 cycles or until disease recurrence or unacceptable toxicity, and patients in Arm B will receive best supportive care and scheduled observational follow-up. Endpoints will include major pathological response (≤ 10% residual viable tumour tissue at time of resection), investigator-assessed event-free survival and disease-free survival per RECIST v1.1, OS, ORR, pathological complete response and patient-reported outcomes. Exploratory biomarkers will also be evaluated.

      196O - STELLAR: Final updated results of a phase II trial of TTFields with chemotherapy for unresectable malignant pleural mesothelioma (ID 567)

      Background

      Tumor Treating Fields (TTFields), an anti-mitotic, regional treatment approved for glioblastoma utilizes low intensity, alternating electric fields delivered non-invasively to the tumor using a portable medical device. In-vitro, human mesothelioma cells were highly susceptible to TTFields.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Methods

      The trial accrued 80 patients with unresectable, previously untreated mesothelioma. Patients were treated with continuous 150 kHz TTFields (>18h/day) in combination with pemetrexed and cisplatin or carboplatin. Inclusion criteria included ECOG PS of 0-1 and pathologically proven mesothelioma. The primary endpoint was overall survival (OS). A visual analog scale was used to assess EOCG performance status and cancer-related pain assessed until disease progression. The sample size provided 80% power with two-sided alpha of 0.05 to detect an increase in median OS of 5.5 months compared to historical controls (Vogelzang, JCO 2003).

      20c51b5f4e9aeb5334c90ff072e6f928 Results

      All 80 patients had a minimum follow up of 12 months. Median age was 67 (range 27-78), 84% were male and 44% (35 patients) had an ECOG PS of 1. 66% (53 patients) had epithelioid histology, similar to the Vogelzang study. Median OS was 18.2 months (95% CI 12.1-25.8) versus 12.1 months in the historical control. Median OS for epithelioid patients was 21.2 months (95% CI 13.2-25.8). ECOG score was stable during the first year of follow up. Median time to deterioration in performance status was 13.1 months. Average score of pain was lower compared to baseline during the first 7 months of the treatment and was higher later on the study, with a median time to a clinical significant 33% increase in pain of 8.4 months. No device-related serious adverse events (AEs) were reported. Expected TTFields-related dermatitis was reported in 46% (37 patients). Four patients (5%) had grade 3 dermatitis.

      fd69c5cf902969e6fb71d043085ddee6 Conclusions

      The study met primary endpoint of significant extension of overall survival in previously untreated mesothelioma patients. TTFields was not associated with a decrease in performance status or an increase in pain for the duration of TTFields use. TTFields in combination with chemotherapy is efficacious in malignant pleural mesothelioma compared to historical data.
