      The role of PD-L1 expression in 2nd line and beyond non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains controversial. Camrelizumab (SHR-1210) is a potent anti-PD-1 monoclonal antibody and has shown promising activity in NSCLC in Phase I studies. We report results from the SHR-1210-201 study (NCT03085069), a phase II umbrella study of camrelizumab monotherapy in different PD-L1 expression cohorts in Chinese patients with previously treated advanced or metastatic NSCLC.

      Patients who progressed during or following platinum-based doublet chemotherapy were enrolled and assigned to one of 4 cohorts based on PD-L1 expression. Patients with EGFR or ALK genomic alterations were eligible provided they had disease progression with at least one approved tyrosine kinase inhibitor and with ≥50% PD-L1 expression in tumor. All enrolled patients received camrelizumab at 200 mg IV Q2W until loss of clinical benefit. The primary endpoint was objective response rate (ORR), other endpoints included progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS).

      As of Aug 1st 2018, of all the 259 patients who underwent screen, 229 cases could be pathologically evaluated. PD-L1 expression were 47.6% (109/229) in PD-L1 < 1%, 27.1% (62/229) in PD-L1 1-<25%, 8.7% (20/229) in 25-<50% and 16.6% (38/229) in 50%. A total of 63.8% (146/229) patients were enrolled. 89.0% of patients had stage IV NSCLC and 54.8% had non-squamous tumor histology. ORR was 18.5% (95%CI: 12.6%–25.8%) in ITT population. Subgroup analysis showed increased PD-L1 expression was associated with better response rate (Table 1). No response was observed in patients with EGFR mutation. The responders had durable response (median: 15.1 months; 95%CI: 5.5–not reached). Median PFS was 3.2 months (95%CI: 2.0–3.4) and median OS was 19.4 months (95%CI: 11.6–not reached) (Table 1). Treatment-related adverse events (AEs) occurred in 87.7% of patients (all Grade); 20.5% had ≥G3 related AE; and 15.8% had related SAE. 21.2% of AEs led to dose interruption and 7.5% led to treatment discontinuation.

      In Chinese patients with previously treated advanced/metastatic NSCLC, camrelizumab demonstrated improved ORR, PFS, and OS compared with historical data of the 2nd line chemotherapy. The efficacy in patients with PD-L1 <1% is similar as the 2nd line mono-chemotherapy, while patients with higher PD-L1 expression derived greater benefit from camrelizumab, the ORR, PFS and OS in patients with PD-L1 ≥25% was comparable to the 1st line doublet chemotherapy in advanced NSCLC. Camrelizumab was well tolerated. This phase 2 data warrant further clinical studies of camrelizumab in NSCLC.
