Entrectinib is a systemic and central nervous system (CNS)-active potent inhibitor of ROS1 and TRKA/B/C. Primary data showed that entrectinib was tolerable and achieved high objective response rates (ORR) in patients (pts) with ROS1-positive (ROS1+), ROS1 inhibitor-naive NSCLC, and in pts with NTRK fusion-positive (NTRK+) NSCLC, including pts with baseline CNS disease. We present data from an additional 5 months of follow-up.
Pts with locally advanced/metastatic ROS1+ or NTRK+ tumors (with or without baseline CNS disease) confirmed by nucleic acid-based methods, enrolled in global phase 1/2 entrectinib trials (ALKA-372-001 [EudraCT 2012-000148-88], STARTRK-1 [NCT02097810], STARTRK-2 [NCT02568267]) were included. Disease burden was assessed per blinded independent central review (BICR) using RECIST v1.1, after cycle 1 (4 wks) then every 8 wks. Primary endpoints were ORR and duration of response (DOR) by BICR. Secondary endpoints included ORR and DOR in pts with or without baseline CNS disease, and safety. Intracranial (IC) ORR and DOR were evaluated in pts with baseline CNS disease.
There were 53 efficacy-evaluable pts with treatment-naïve, ROS1+ NSCLC and 10 pts with NTRK+ NSCLC. As of 30 Oct 2018 (additional 5 months’ follow-up), BICR ORR: ROS1+ 79.2% (95% CI 65.9–89.2) and NTRK+ 70.0% (95% CI 34.75–93.33) with complete responses in 5 (9.4%) pts and 1 (10.0%) pt, respectively. In ROS1+ NSCLC, median DOR: 24.6 mo (95% CI 12.6–34.8); in pts with and without baseline CNS disease, ORR was 73.9% (95% CI 51.6–89.8) and 83.3% (95% CI 65.3–94.4); IC ORR was 55.0% (95% CI 31.5–76.9); and median IC DOR was 12.9 mo (95% CI 5.6–not estimable). Additional efficacy for NTRK+ NSCLC pts will be presented. Entrectinib was well tolerated with a safety profile consistent with that previously reported; there were no new or unexpected safety findings.
In line with the primary data, in pts with ROS1+ and NTRK+ NSCLC after an additional 5 months of follow-up, entrectinib was well tolerated and showed clinically meaningful, durable systemic and intracranial responses.
