Abstract 1290P


Selpercatinib (LOXO-292), a highly selective and potent RET kinase inhibitor, demonstrated marked and durable antitumor activity in pts with RET fusion+ NSCLC in an ongoing phase 1/2 trial. We evaluated best responses to last prior therapy received before enrollment and to selpercatinib by last prior therapy subgroups.


Pts with RET fusion+ NSCLC enrolled in the global, multicenter, LIBRETTO-001 trial (NCT03157128) received the recommended phase 2 selpercatinib dose (160 mg twice daily) after dose escalation. This analysis assessed outcomes by category of last systemic therapy received prior to enrollment. Efficacy was analyzed in the first 105 consecutively enrolled pts pretreated with platinum chemotherapy (primary analysis set [PAS]). Adverse events (AEs) were measured in all pretreated pts who received selpercatinib by data cutoff date of 16-Dec-2019.


PAS pts (n=105) had a median of 3 (range: 1-15) prior systemic regimens. Most pts received chemotherapy only (30%) or a multikinase inhibitor (MKI) (32%), and had an objective response rate (ORR) with these regimens of 13% and 18%, respectively (Table). ORR with selpercatinib was 64% (95% CI: 53.9-73.0) regardless of previous regimen type and ranged from 58% to 69% across prior therapy groups (Table). In the pretreated safety population (n=269), the most common treatment-related AEs reported in ≥1 prior therapy groups in ≥20% of pts were diarrhea, dry mouth, increased AST or ALT, rash, fatigue, thrombocytopenia, peripheral edema, increased blood creatinine or blood alkaline phosphate, and hypertension.

Pts enrolled in LIBRETTO-001 did not experience clinically meaningful ORRs to varied therapies administered prior to selpercatinib. By contrast, selpercatinib showed consistent, robust, and durable efficacy across these varied prior therapy histories in heavily pretreated pts with RET fusion+ NSCLC. There were no new safety signals.
