Abstract 5763

Background

Previous studies indicate that genomic alterations (GAs) in cell-free (cf)DNA are found in > 90% of patients (pts) with mUC [Agarwal et al Cancer 2018]. The ease of collection of cfDNA makes it an attractive alternative to tumor tissue-based screening, but the equivalency of cfDNA and tumor tissue for biomarker testing has yet to be defined in a prospective trial in mUC. We examine this in a phase Ib trial of infigratinib (BGJ398), a potent and selective FGFR1–3 inhibitor, in pts with mUC bearing FGFR3 alterations [Pal et al Cancer Discovery 2018].

Methods

Eligible pts had mUC with activating FGFR3 mutations/fusions and prior platinum-based chemotherapy, unless contraindicated. Pts received infigratinib 125 mg orally daily (3 wks on/1 wk off). Comprehensive genomic profiling (CGP) was performed on FFPE tissues in a CLIA-certified lab (Foundation Medicine; Cambridge, MA), and blood was collected for cfDNA analysis using a 600-gene panel on an Illumina HiSeq 2500 sequencer. Patients were monitored for their best overall response rate (ORR) based on radiological imaging.

Results

67 pts were enrolled; ORR was 25.4% and disease control rate was 64.2%. Blood for cfDNA was collected in 53 pts at the time of screening; collection occurred at a mean of 8.8 days (range 0–37 days) prior to therapy initiation. In contrast, tumor tissue was collected a mean of 520 days (range 28–2315 days) prior. GAs in cfDNA were found in all pts; 38 pts (68%) had detectable FGFR3 mutation. FGFR3 alterations were concordant in 30/38 (79%) of tumors with both tumor tissue and cfDNA at screening. Other commonly encountered alterations were found in KDM6A (30%), KMT2D (20%) and TP53 (20%). In this cohort, all 11 pts with progressive disease (PD) as a best response had detectable FGFR3 in cfDNA at screening, while this was found in only 7/12 responders (58%).

Conclusions

cfDNA identified FGFR3 mutations in 79% of pts whose mutations were previously identified in tumor tissue, suggesting that cfDNA is a secondary screening option for trials assessing FGFR3-directed therapies. The paradoxically higher rate of PD in pts with detectable FGFR3 mutations in cfDNA warrants further study.
