      Background

      The immune mechanisms dictating response and resistance to PD-(L)1 blockade are not well understood in early stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Understanding these mechanisms will be key to improve outcomes and identify the next generation of predictive biomarkers of response to these therapies. Here, we present updated immunophenotyping at time of interim analysis of LCMC3, a multicenter trial of neoadjuvant atezolizumab in resectable NSCLC (NCT02927301).

      Method

      Patients received 2 cycles of atezolizumab before resection. Tumor, LN biopsies and PB were obtained pre-atezolizumab and at surgery. Paired PB, screening and surgical LN were analyzed using IMMUNOME flow cytometry. Plasma-based cytokine arrays were performed on a subset of patients. Immunophenotypic analyses were correlated with treatment effect, major pathologic response (MPR, primary endpoint) and preoperative treatment-related adverse events (preop-TRAE).

      Result

      We report on 55 patients with paired PB samples (analyzed within 72h after collection) and completed surgery. We observed preop-TRAE in 32/55 patients (18 grade 1, 13 grade 2, 1 grade 3). CD1c+ and CD141+ myeloid cells (MC) were lower at baseline in patients developing preop-TRAEs, while monocytic M-MDSCs were higher in those patients. Senescent T cells decreased in patients with preop-TRAE and increased in patients with non-preop-TRAE. After treatment, the absolute cell counts of late activated CD4+and CD8+T cells decreased in patients achieving MPR. LN IMMUNOME data, cytokine data and 12-month follow-up (DFS, OS) will be reported.

      Conclusion

      Preliminary immunophenotyping data from the interim analysis showed significantly lower baseline immunosuppressive cell subsets in patients with preop-TRAE and decreased late activated CD4+and CD8+T cells from PB in patients with MPR.These results, together with additional LN IMMUNOME and cytokine analyses, may improve our understanding of immunophenotypic features associated with outcome, and changes induced by neoadjuvant atezolizumab in early stage NSCLC patients.
