Abstract

Background

Pts with mUC have limited options after progression on PLT/checkpoint inhibitors (CPI). Sacituzumab govitecan (SG) is an antibody-drug conjugate comprising a humanized anti-Trop-2 monoclonal antibody coupled to SN-38 via a unique hydrolysable linker. In a prior phase I/II study, SG showed significant clinical activity and manageable toxicity in 45 heavily pretreated mUC pts (ORR: 31% overall).

Methods

TROPHY-U-01 (NCT03547973) is a global, open-label, phase II trial evaluating the antitumor activity of SG (10 mg/kg, days 1, 8 of 21-day cycles) in pts with mUC with measurable disease, ECOG performance status 0 or 1, and creatinine clearance ≥30 mL/min. This pre-planned interim analysis based on investigator assessment per RECIST v1.1 reports data from Cohort 1 (pts who progressed after both PLT and CPI). Cohort 1 (N = 35) had a Simon two-stage design with a prespecified futility stopping rule of 11% ORR.

Results

35 pts with ≥1 post -baseline response assessment (80% male; median age 64 y [range 43-90], 77% ≥1 Bellmunt risk factors) received a median of 3 (range 2-7) prior therapies. At a median follow-up of 4.1 mon, ORR was 29% (10/35) with 2 confirmed CR, 5 confirmed PR, and 3 unconfirmed PR (all 3 ongoing and awaiting radiographic confirmation); 74% (26/35) of pts had target lesion reduction. ORR was 25% [2/8] in pts with liver involvement. The safety profile was consistent with prior reports. Key Grade ≥3 treatment-related AEs were neutropenia (23%), anemia (17%), febrile neutropenia (11%), diarrhea (11%). No events of interstitial lung disease, ocular toxicities, or grade >2 neuropathy were reported. There were no treatment-related deaths.

Conclusions

Interim Cohort 1 results from TROPHY-U-01 surpassed the pre-specified futility stopping rule and enrollment continues. Findings confirm prior phase I/II study results of SG as well-tolerated with significant antitumor activity in mUC pts after both prior PLT and CPI. In this population that continues to have a high unmet medical need despite recent progress, the ORR of 29% compares favorably with single-agent chemotherapy (ORR of 9%–14%).
