Abstract 4290


CDK4/6 inhibitor RIBO is approved in combination with an aromatase inhibitor (AI) for HR+, HER2– ABC in postmenopausal women with no prior therapy for ABC, based on the MONALEESA-2 trial (Hortobagyi et al. NEJM 2016). Previous first-line studies of CDK4/6 inhibitors plus an AI have excluded pts who have received prior CT for ABC, and as such it is important to define safety in this population. Here, we report early safety results for pts who had received prior CT for ABC enrolled in CompLEEment-1, an open-label, phase 3b trial evaluating RIBO+LET as first-line endocrine-based therapy in an expanded pt population.


Pts with HR+, HER2– ABC, ≤1 line of prior CT, and no prior endocrine therapy for ABC received RIBO (600 mg/day, 3 wk on/1 wk off) + LET (2.5 mg/day); men and premenopausal women received concomitant goserelin (3.6-mg subcutaneous implant q28 days). The primary outcome was safety and tolerability. A pre-planned interim analysis was conducted ∼15 months after first pt first visit.


Of the first 1,008 pts enrolled with 56 days of follow-up or discontinued before the data cut-off, 188 had received prior CT for ABC. In this subgroup, the median age was 56.5 years; 2 pts were men and 39 were premenopausal women. The majority of pts (95%) had an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status ≤1; 45.7% presented with stage IV disease at diagnosis. The most common sites of metastasis were lung (38.8%), liver (33.0%), and lymph nodes (30.0%). The most common all-grade adverse events (AE) were neutropenia (48.9%), nausea (30.3%), and fatigue (20.7%). The most common grade ≥3 AEs were neutropenia (28.2%) and leukopenia (3.2%). QT prolongation events were mild and occurred in 5.9% of pts. Dose reduction or interruption due to AEs occurred in 48.4% of pts; 5 pts discontinued due to AEs.


Initial safety results from CompLEEment-1 demonstrate the tolerability of RIBO+LET in pts who had received prior CT for ABC, consistent with previous reports in pts without CT for ABC. NCT02941926.
