Abstract 3851


Chemotherapy (including paclitaxel [pac]) remains the main 1L treatment for metastatic TNBC but brings limited clinical benefit, highlighting the need for new treatments. Atezolizumab (atezo) blocks the interaction of PD-L1 with receptors PD-1 and B7.1, thus restoring anti-tumor immunity. TNBC is a rational target for atezo due to high PD-L1 expression, elevated T-cell tumor infiltration and high mutational burden. Atezo alone and in combination with nab-pac was well tolerated, with no exacerbation of chemo-associated adverse events, and demonstrated promising clinical activity in mTNBC. Atezo + nab-pac is being further investigated as 1L TNBC treatment in IMpassion130. IMpassion131, a global, multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo (pbo)-controlled study, is comparing the efficacy and safety of 1L atezo + pac vs pbo + pac in patients (pts) with untreated, inoperable, locally advanced or metastatic TNBC.

Trial design

Eligible pts are those with inoperable, locally advanced or metastatic TNBC, histologically confirmed; de novo or recurrent disease after early BC chemo treatment completed ≥ 12 mo prior; taxane monotherapy eligible; no prior chemo or targeted systemic therapy for inoperable locally advanced or metastatic disease; ECOG PS 0-1 and measurable disease by RECIST v1.1. Exclusion criteria include known symptomatic CNS disease, prior immunotherapy and history of autoimmune disease. Approximately 495 pts will be randomized 2:1 to receive atezo (840 mg) or pbo (q2w; days 1 and 15 of 28-day cycle) plus pac (90 mg/m2; days 1, 8, 15 of 28-day cycle) until disease progression. Stratification factors are PD-L1 expression on tumor-infiltrating immune cells (IC; IC0 [< 1%] vs IC1/2/3 [≥ 1%] with VENTANA SP142 IHC assay), prior taxane therapy, presence of liver metastases and geographical region. The primary endpoint is PFS measured by RECIST v1.1. Key secondary endpoints include OS, 12- and 18-month OS rates, 12-month PFS rate, ORR, DOR, and safety. Tumor biopsies will be investigated at baseline, on treatment and at progression to assess biomarkers of response and immune escape.
