Efficacy (median follow-up: 17.6 months)

An update of the primary dataset set of 55 patients at 17.6 months’ follow-up has also been reported, together with results from an additional 67 patients in a supplementary dataset at 7.4 months’ follow-up [1]. Results from an integrated dataset of both study populations are also reported.

Kaplan-Meier landmark analyses of the supplementary dataset were highly concordant with the primary dataset with 93% of responses ongoing at 6 months and 81% of responses ongoing at 12 months from start of response [1]. In the integrated dataset, 84% of responding patients remained on treatment or had undergone surgery with curative intent [1]. Activity was also reported in a patient with non-small cell lung cancer with liver and brain metastases, demonstrating activity in CNS disease.

In the primary dataset, median progression-free survival was 28.3 months (95% CI 9.9 months – not estimable) [2]. Of note, it was reported that this estimate was not statistically stable due to a low number of progression events [2].
