Metastatic non–small-cell lung cancer is still a devastating disease; however, treatment options have diversified dramatically in the past two decades. From unselected platinum-based chemotherapy for all patients, several different treatment groups have evolved, that is, those with "druggable" targets, those with a promising immune signature, and those without any predicting factors outlined in this article. Challenge includes the intersections between these groups and the optimal treatment path. These issues will be addressed in this review.
Purpose:. Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) have revolutionized cancer management. However, molecular determinants of response to ICIs remain incompletely understood. Experimental Design:. We performed genomic profiling of 78 patients with non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who underwent anti–PD-(L)1 therapies by both whole-exome and targeted next-generation sequencing (a 422-cancer-gene panel) to explore the predictive biomarkers of ICI response. Tumor mutation burden (TMB), and specific somatic mutations and copy-number alterations (CNA) were evaluated for their associations with immunotherapy response. Results:. We confirmed that high TMB was associated with improved clinical outcomes, and TMB quantified by gene panel strongly correlated w.
Purpose:. mAbs including cetuximab can induce antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) and cytokine production mediated via innate immune cells with the ability to recognize mAb-coated tumors. Preclinical modeling has shown that costimulation of natural killer (NK) cells via the Fc receptor and the IL12 receptor promotes NK-cell–mediated ADCC and production of cytokines. Patients and Methods:. This phase I/II trial evaluated the combination of cetuximab with IL12 for the treatment of EGFR-expressing head and neck cancer. Treatment consisted of cetuximab 500 mg/m 2 i.v. every 2 weeks with either 0.2 mcg/kg or 0.3 mcg/kg IL12 s.c. on days 2 and 5 of the 2-week cycle, beginning with cycle 2. Correlative studies from blood draws obtained p.
Purpose:. NRG1 gene fusions are rare but potentially actionable oncogenic drivers that are present in some solid tumors. Details regarding the incidence of these gene rearrangements are lacking. Here, we assessed the incidence of NRG1 fusions across multiple tumor types and described fusion partners. Experimental Design:. Tumor specimens submitted for molecular profiling at a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)–certified genomics laboratory and that underwent fusion testing by anchored multiplex PCR for targeted RNA sequencing were retrospectively identified. The overall and tumor-specific incidence was noted, as was the specific fusion partner. Results:. Out of 21,858 tumor specimens profiled from September 2015 to December 2018.
Purpose:. After cisplatin-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC), 60% of patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) still have residual invasive disease at radical cystectomy. The NAC-induced biological alterations in these cisplatin-resistant tumors remain largely unstudied. Experimental Design:. Radical cystectomy samples were available for gene expression analysis from 133 patients with residual invasive disease after cisplatin-based NAC, of whom 116 had matched pre-NAC samples. Unsupervised consensus clustering (CC) was performed and the consensus clusters were investigated for their biological and clinical characteristics. Hematoxylin & Eosin and IHC on tissue microarrays were used to confirm tissue sampling and gene expression an.
Purpose:. Leiomyosarcoma and liposarcoma are common subtypes of soft tissue sarcoma (STS). Patients with metastatic leiomyosarcoma or dedifferentiated liposarcoma (DDLPS) typically have worse outcomes compared with localized leiomyosarcoma or well-differentiated liposarcoma (WDLPS). A better understanding of genetic changes between primary/metastatic leiomyosarcoma and between WDLPS/DDLPS may provide insight into their genetic evolution. Experimental Design:. We interrogated whole-exome sequencing (WES) from "trios" of normal tissue, primary tumor, and metastatic tumor from individual patients with leiomyosarcoma ( n = 9), and trios of normal tissue, well-differentiated tumor, and dedifferentiated tumor from individual patients with liposarco.
Purpose:. We discuss designs and interpretable metrics of bias and statistical efficiency of "externally controlled" trials (ECT) and compare ECT performance to randomized and single-arm designs. Experimental Design:. We specify an ECT design that leverages information from real-world data (RWD) and prior clinical trials to reduce bias associated with interstudy variations of the enrolled populations.
Purpose:. New strategies to restore sodium iodide symporter (NIS) expression and function in radioiodine therapy–refractive anaplastic thyroid cancers (ATCs) are urgently required. Recently, we reported the regulatory role of estrogen-related receptor gamma (ERR) in ATC cell NIS function. Herein, we identified DN200434 as a highly potent (functional IC 50 = 0.006 μmol/L), selective, and orally available ERR inverse agonist for NIS enhancement in ATC. Experimental Design:. We sought to identify better ERR-targeting ligands and explored the crystal structure of ERR in complex with DN200434. After treating ATC cells with DN200434, the change in iodide-handling gene expression, as well as radioiodine avidity was examined. ATC tumor–bearing mice w.
Purpose:. BN-CV301 is a poxviral-based vaccine comprised of recombinant (rec.) modified vaccinia Ankara (MVA-BN-CV301; prime) and rec. fowlpox (FPV-CV301; boost). Like its predecessor PANVAC, BN-CV301 contains transgenes encoding tumor-associated antigens MUC1 and CEA as well as costimulatory molecules (B7.1, ICAM-1, and LFA-3). PANVAC was reengineered to make it safer and more antigenic. Patients and Methods:. This open-label, 3+3 design, dose-escalation trial evaluated three dose levels (DL) of MVA-BN-CV301: one, two, or four subcutaneous injections of 4 x 10 8 infectious units (Inf.U)/0.5 mL on weeks 0 and 4. All patients received FPV-CV301 subcutaneously at 1 x 10 9 Inf.U/0.5 mL every 2 weeks for 4 doses, then every 4 weeks. Clinical and
Purpose:. Aberrant activation of MET (hepatocyte growth factor receptor) signaling is implicated in the tumorigenesis of human cancers. This phase I study assessed the safety, tolerability, and MTD of the potent and selective MET inhibitor, savolitinib (AZD6094, HMPL-504, volitinib). Patients and Methods:. This open-label, multicenter dose-escalation and -expansion study evaluated oral savolitinib for patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors. A 3 + 3 design assessed repeated daily (QD) and twice daily (BID) dosing schedules. The dose-expansion phase included 12 patients. Primary objectives were to evaluate the safety, tolerability, MTD, and dose-limiting toxicities (DLT) of savolitinib. Secondary and exploratory objectives in.
Purpose:. Myelofibrosis is characterized by bone marrow fibrosis, atypical megakaryocytes, splenomegaly, constitutional symptoms, thrombotic and hemorrhagic complications, and a risk of evolution to acute leukemia. The JAK kinase inhibitor ruxolitinib provides therapeutic benefit, but the effects are limited. The purpose of this study was to determine whether targeting AURKA, which has been shown to increase maturation of atypical megakaryocytes, has potential benefit for patients with myelofibrosis. Patients and Methods:. Twenty-four patients with myelofibrosis were enrolled in a phase I study at three centers. The objective of the study was to evaluate the safety and preliminary efficacy of alisertib. Correlative studies involved assessment.
Purpose:. In research settings, circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) shows promise as a tumor-specific biomarker for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). This study aims to perform analytical and clinical validation of a KRAS ctDNA assay in a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) and College of American Pathology–certified clinical laboratory. Experimental Design:. Digital-droplet PCR was used to detect the major PDAC-associated somatic KRAS mutations (G12D, G12V, G12R, and Q61H) in liquid biopsies. For clinical validation, 290 preoperative and longitudinal postoperative plasma samples were collected from 59 patients with PDAC. The utility of ctDNA status to predict PDAC recurrence during follow-up was assessed. Results:. ctDNA was de.
Purpose:. The histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor panobinostat potentiates anthracycline and cytarabine cytotoxicity in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells. We hypothesized that panobinostat prior to and during induction chemotherapy would be tolerable and augment response in patients showing increased histone acetylation. Patients and Methods:. Patients received panobinostat 20–60 mg oral daily on days 1, 3, 5, and 8 with daunorubicin 60 mg/m 2 /day intravenously on days 3 to 5 and cytarabine 100 mg/m 2 /day intravenously by continuous infusion on days 3 to 9 ("7+3"). Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were isolated for HDAC expression and histone acetylation changes. Results:. Twenty-five patients ages 60–85 years (median age, 69) we.
Purpose:. Here, we report results of the first phase I study of erdafitinib, a potent, oral pan-FGFR inhibitor. Patients and Methods:. Patients age ≥18 years with advanced solid tumors for which standard antineoplastic therapy was no longer effective were enrolled (NCT01703481).
Purpose:. High-grade glioma (HGG) treatment is limited by the inability of otherwise potentially efficacious drugs to penetrate the blood–brain barrier. We evaluate the unique intracavity delivery mode and translational potential of a blend of poly( DL -lactic acid-co-glycolic acid; PLGA) and poly(ethylene glycol; PEG) paste combining temozolomide and etoposide to treat surgically resected HGG. Experimental Design:. To prolong stability of temozolomide prodrug, combined in vitro drug release was quantitatively assessed from low pH–based PLGA/PEG using advanced analytic methods. In vitro cytotoxicity was measured against a panel of HGG cell lines and patient-derived cultures using metabolic assays. In vivo safety and efficacy was evaluated usi.
Purpose:. The response to acute and long-term arginine starvation results in a conditional adaptive metabolic reprogramming that can be harnessed for therapeutic opportunities in ASS1-negative tumors. Here, we investigate the underlying biology of priming ASS1 – tumors with arginine deiminase (ADI-PEG20) before treatment with gemcitabine (GEM) and docetaxel (DTX) in sarcoma, pancreatic cancer, and melanoma cell lines. Experimental Design:. ASS1 – tumor cell lines were treated to create LTAT (long-term ADI treated) cell lines (ASS1 + ) and used for drug combination studies. Protein expression of ASS1, dCK, RRM2, E2F1, c-MYC, and hENT1 was measured. c-MYC activity was determined, live-cell immunofluorescent studies for hENT1, uptake assays of F.
The positive but limited efficacy of JAK inhibitors has sparked the need for alternative therapeutic targets in the treatment of myelofibrosis. The discovery of novel targets, like Aurora Kinase A, may provide new avenues of single-agent and combinatorial therapy for myelofibrosis and restoration of normal bone marrow function. See related article by Gangat et al., p. 4898.
Purpose:. Prediction of spatially variant response to cancer therapies can inform risk-adaptive management within precision oncology. We developed the "Voxel Forecast" multiscale regression framework for predicting spatially variant tumor response to chemoradiotherapy on fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging. Experimental Design:. Twenty-five patients with locally advanced non–small cell lung cancer, enrolled on the FLARE-RT phase II trial (NCT02773238), underwent FDG PET/CT imaging prior to (PETpre) and during week 3 (PETmid) of concurrent chemoradiotherapy. Voxel Forecast was designed to predict tumor voxel standardized uptake value (SUV) on PETmid from baseline patient-level and voxel-le.
Purpose:. The oral proteasome inhibitor oprozomib has shown preclinical antitumor activity. Here, we report phase Ib/II study results investigating single-agent oprozomib in patients with relapsed multiple myeloma and Waldenström macroglobulinemia. Patients and Methods:. The primary objectives were to determine the MTD, safety, and tolerability of oprozomib (phase Ib) as well as overall response rate (ORR; phase II). Oprozomib was administered once daily on days 1, 2, 8, and 9 (2/7 schedule) or days 1 to 5 (5/14 schedule) of a 14-day cycle. Results:. In patients with multiple myeloma or Waldenström macroglobulinemia ( n = 71), the determined MTDs were 300 mg/day (2/7 schedule) and 240 mg/day (5/14 schedule). Median oprozomib treatment durati.
