Abstract 1261MO


EGFR exon20ins occur in ∼1%‒2% of patients (pts) with NSCLC. Currently approved EGFR TKIs have not shown efficacy in most of these mutations. Mobocertinib is an investigational oral EGFR/HER2 inhibitor under evaluation in pts with metastatic NSCLC with EGFR exon20ins. We previously reported dose escalation and establishment of 160 mg qd as RP2D. We report updated antitumor activity and safety results from an open-label, multicenter study of mobocertinib (NCT02716116).


Antitumor activity by investigator-assessed radiographic response (RECIST 1.1) and toxicity (NCI CTCAE) were determined for pts with advanced, previously treated NSCLC with EGFR exon20ins who received mobocertinib 160 mg qd. Safety data were collected for all pts treated at 160 mg qd.


As of 27 Jan 2020, 28 pts with previously treated NSCLC and EGFR exon20ins were treated in dose escalation/expansion at 160 mg qd. In these pts: median age, 62 y (range 28‒ 84); women, 75%; ECOG 0/1, 21%/79%; ≥2 prior anticancer therapies, 86%; brain metastases, 43%. Median time on treatment was 12 mo (13 treatment cycles) and 7 pts remain on treatment. Confirmed ORR (PR) was 43% (12/28; 95% CI 24‒63). The disease control rate was 86% (24/28; 95% CI 67–96). Two pts had best response of PD; 2 pts were not evaluable. Median duration of response in the 12 pts with confirmed PR was 14 mo (95% CI 5–not reached). The median PFS was 7.3 mo (95% CI 4.4‒15.6); 12-mo PFS was 33% (15‒52). Response to mobocertinib was observed in diverse EGFR exon20ins variants. Among these 28 pts, most common any grade treatment-related AEs (TRAEs; >25%) as assessed by investigator: diarrhea (82%), rash (46%), nausea (39%), decreased appetite (39%), vomiting (36%), paronychia (29%); grade ≥3 TRAEs (≥5%): diarrhea (32%), nausea (11%), increased lipase (7%), increased amylase (7%), stomatitis (7%), vomiting (7%). In all 136 pts treated with ≥1 dose of 160 mg, most common TRAEs: diarrhea (83%), nausea (43%), rash (33%), vomiting (27%); grade ≥3 TRAEs: diarrhea (21%) and increased lipase (5%).


Mobocertinib demonstrated antitumor activity in pts with advanced NSCLC with EGFR exon20ins. The safety profile for mobocertinib was consistent with other EGFR TKIs.
