At therapeutic concentrations, PEGylated IL-10 (AM0010) stimulates the cytotoxicity, survival and proliferation of intratumoral antigen activated CD8+ T cells in pre-clinical cancer models and in patients. AM0010 activates antigen stimulated CD8 T cells while PD-1 inhibits them, providing a rationale for combining AM0010 with PD-1 inhibitors.


34 NSCLC pts received AM0010 (10-20ug/kg QD, SC) with pembrolizumab (2mg/kg, q3wk IV; n = 5) or nivolumab (3mg/kg, q2wk IV; n = 29). Pts had a median of 2 prior therapies. The median follow-up is 14.9 mo (range 5.6-30.3). Tumor responses were assessed by irRC. 20 patients were analyzed for PD-L1 expression (22C3). Immune responses were measured by analysis of serum cytokines (Luminex), activation of blood derived CD8 T cells (FACS) and peripheral T cell clonality (TCR sequencing). Tumor tissue was analyzed for tumor mutational burden by WES and mRNA expression of IO markers (Nanostring).


AM0010 plus anti-PD-1 was well tolerated. All TrAEs were reversible and transient. G3/4 TrAEs included thrombocytopenia (8), anemia (7), fatigue (6), rash (4), pyrexia (2), hypertriglyceridemia (3) and pneumonitis (1). As of Sept 15, 2017, 27 pts had at least 1 tumor assessment. 10 pts (36.4%) had a partial response (PR) and 12 pts (44.4%) had stable disease (SD). Notably, of five patients with PD-L1 + ≥ 50% NSCLC, four had a PR, 1 had SD with 47% reduction of tumor burden.Table: 9PD

AM0010 in combination with an anti-PD-1 is well-tolerated in advanced NSCLC pts. The improved efficacy regardless of PD-L1 status and the observed CD8 T cell activation is promising and encourages the continued study of AM0010 in combination with an anti-PD-1.
