Abstract 2P


MSI-H/dMMR is considered the first predictive marker of efficacy for ICIs with tissue/site-agnostic approval. However, around 39% of cases are refractory and no additional biomarker has been identified. We explored the prognostic value of pretreatment LIPI in MSI-H/dMMR patients (pts) treated with ICI, particularly to identify the fast-progressors (FP).


Multicenter retrospective study of pts with metastatic MSI-H/dMMR tumors treated with ICIs from Apr2014 to May2019. Biological and clinical data were collected; LIPI was calculated based on dNLR [neutrophils/leucocytes-neutrophils]>3 + LDH>Upper Limit of Normality (ULN), as reported. LIPI groups were: good (0 factor), intermediate (interm.; one factor) and poor (2 factors). Primary endpoint was overall survival (OS), including the FP (OS < 3 months); secondary endpoints were progression free survival (PFS).


A total of 151 pts were treated, mainly female (59%), median age of 64y, with performance status (PS) >1 (68%), and sporadic dMMR status (68%). ICI was the 1st or 2nd line in 59%. The most frequent tumors types were gastrointestinal (66%) and gynecological (22%). LIPI groups were distributed as follows: good n=67 (47%), interm. n=62 (43%), poor n=14 (10%). The median (m) follow up was 32 months (m.). 24m OS rates were 71.1%, 54.2% and 14.3% for good, interm and poor risk groups, respectively (P<0.0001). After adjustment on tumor site, metastatic sites and PS, LIPI remains independently associated with OS (HR poor: 3.2, 95%CI:1.3-7.9, P=0.03). Overall, the FP rate was 16%; up to 35.7% in poor LIPI group vs. 7.5% in good LIPI (P=0.02). The odds ratio for FP event among the poor group was 6.9 [95%CI: 1.7-28.6; P=0.01]. Overall, mPFS was 10.5m. (7.1-35.1); by LIPI groups: 20.9m. (8.4-NR) for good, 9.9m. (2.8-NR) for interm. and 2.3m. (1.8-NR) for the poor group (P<0.0001).


LIPI identifies dMMR pts that do not benefit from ICI treatment, particularly the fast-progressors. It should be included as stratification factor for future trials.
