Abstract 2136


Most pts with newly diagnosed NSCLC have locally advanced or metastatic disease, with 30%-40% having poor performance status (ECOG PS ≥ 2) due to disease burden and comorbidities. These pts have poor prognosis vs pts with PS 

Trial design

Eligible pts have Stage IIIB/IV NSCLC; are considered unsuitable for plat-based chemo due to poor PS (ECOG PS 2-3); have substantial comorbidities or contraindications for plat-based doublet chemo; have measurable disease; have no EGFR/ALK mutations and have received no prior systemic therapy. Pts will be randomized 2:1 to receive atezo 1200 mg IV q3w or single-agent chemo (vin [PO/IV], gem [IV]) per local practice until PD. Pts on atezo may continue therapy until loss of clinical benefit. Stratification factors include histology subtype (squamous vs nonsquamous), PD-L1 status (by VENTANA SP142 IHC assay) and presence of brain metastases. Primary endpoint is OS. Secondary endpoints include OS at 6, 12, 18 and 24 mo; ORR; PFS; DOR and safety. Tumor biopsies and blood samples (pre-treatment all mandatory; at PD only blood mandatory) will be assessed for biomarkers associated with atezo responses and immune escape. Planned enrollment is ≈ 441 pts.
