Abstract LBA54


In 1st line EGA, the addition of PD-1 inhibitors to chemotherapy improved outcome in selected patient populations. The INTEGA trial compared different immunotherapy regimens in 1st line HER2+ EGA.


INTEGA is a randomized exploratory phase II investigator initiated trial with two experimental arms. Patients (pts) with previously untreated (for advanced disease) HER2+ (local status - IHC3+ or 2+/ISH+) EGA were randomized to receive trastuzumab (trast) and nivolumab (nivo) (240mg or 1mg/kg with ipi) in combination with either ipilimumab (ipi) (4x 3mg/kg every 3 weeks) (arm A) or mFOLFOX6 (arm B) for up to 12 months. The 1° endpoint was to increase the 12month overall survival rate (OSR@12) from 55% (trast/chemo - ToGA regimen) to 70% in each arm.


Between March 2018 and May 2020 a total of 97 pts were enrolled and 88 randomized (44 per arm) in 21 German sites. Baseline characteristics were female/male 18/70, median age 61 (range 41-80), ECOG 0/1 54/34, GEJ/stomach 66/22, prior surgery for primary tumor in 24 patients and were well balanced between groups. Central posthoc biomarker analysis (ongoing) yet showed PD-L1 CPS>1 in 55 and >5 in 41 pts and HER2 positivity in 76 pts while 8 were negative (incl. one failed ISH). The 1° endpoint of 70% OSR@12 was reached in arm B, but not in arm A (57%) (Table). Treatment related grade 3/4 AE/SAE occurred in 29/15 pts in arm B and in 20/17 pts in arm A. Liquid biopsy analyses showed strong correlation of high ctDNA load with shorter PFS/OS and emergence of truncating HER2 mutations on trast. Table: LBA54

All (n=88) CPS>1 (n=55) CPS>5 (n=41)

ORR 32% 56% 38% 65% 29% 68%

mOS 16.4 mo 21.8 mo 16.4 mo 21.8 mo 12.5 mo 22.4 mo
OSR@12 57% 70% 54% 70% 51% 69%

mPFS – median PFS, PFSR@12 - PFS rate at 12 months, mDOR - duration of response, OSR@12 - OS rate at 12 months, mo - months


Trast/nivo/FOLFOX showed increased efficacy compared to the ToGA regimen, whereas trast/nivo/ipi did not improve OS over trast/chemo. Subgroupanalyses are ongoing and will be presented.
