MA06.06 - A Phase III Study of Adjuvant Chemotherapy in Patients with Completely Resected, Node-Negative Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (Now Available) (ID 285)
13:30 - 15:00 | Author(s): Yoshinori Yamashita
Post-operative UFT (tegafur/uracil) has been shown to prolong survival of Japanese patients with completely resected, p-stage I (T1> 2 cm) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This trial, the Japan Clinical Oncology Group (JCOG) 0707, aimed at estimating the efficacy of S-1 (tegafur/gimeracil/oteracil) compared to UFT as adjuvant therapy in this population.Method
Eligible patients had received complete resection with lymph node dissection for p-stage I (T1-2N0M0, T1> 2 cm, by 5thEdition UICC TNM) NSCLC, within 56 days of enrollment. Patients were randomized to receive: oral UFT 250mg/m2/day for 2 years (Arm A), or oral S-1 80mg/m2/day for 2 weeks and 1 week rest, for 1 year (Arm B). The initial primary endpoint was overall survival (OS). Based upon the monitoring in Jun. 2013, which showed the combined OS of the 2 arms better than expected (4-year OS of 91.6% vs. presumed 5-year OS of 70-76.5%), it was judged to be underpowered. The study protocol was amended so that the primary endpoint is relapse-free survival (RFS). With the calculated sample size of 960, this study would detect the superiority of Arm B over Arm A with power 80% and one-sided type I error of 0.05, assuming the 5-year RFS of 75% in Arm A and the hazard ratio of 0.75.Result
From Nov. 2008 to Dec. 2013, 963 patients were enrolled (Arm A : 482, Arm B : 481): median age 66 (range: 33 to 80), male 58%, adenocarcinoma 80%, p-T1/T2 46%/54%. Only 2 received pneumonectomy. >Grade 3 toxicities (hematologic/nonhematologic) were observed in 15.9 (1.5/14.7) % in Arm A, and in 14.9 (3.6/12.1) % in Arm B, respectively. 60.0% of the patients in Arm A and 54.7% of them in Arm B completed the protocol treatment (p=0.10). There were 4 cases of deaths during protocol treatment, probably of cardio-vascular origin, with 1 in Arm A and 3 in Arm B. At the data cut-off of Dec. 2018, the hazard ratio (HR, Arm B vs. Arm A) of RFS was 1.06 (95% confidence interval (C.I.): 0.82-1.36), showing no superiority of S-1 over UFT. The HR of OS was 1.10 (95% C.I.: 0.81-1.50). The 5-year RFS/OS rates were 79.4%/88.8% in Arm A and 79.5%/89.7% in Arm B, respectively. Pre-specified subset analyses for gender, age, smoking, stage, tumor side, lymph node dissection area, pleural invasion and histology revealed no remarkable results; S-1 arm was not superior to UFT arm in each analysis. Of the 77 and 85 OS events for Arm A/Arm B, 45 each (58%/53%, respectively) were due to the NSCLC. During the follow-up period, secondary malignancy was observed in 85 (17.8%) and 84 (17.8%) in Arm A and Arm B, respectively.Conclusion
Post-operative adjuvant therapy with oral S-1 was not superior to that with UFT in stage I (T>2 cm) NSCLC after complete resection. UFT remains standard in this population. Future investigation should incorporate identification of high-risk population for recurrence, since survival of each arm was so good with substantial number of OS events due to other causes of deaths in this trial.
