Study Description

BackgroundImmune checkpoint inhibitors (ICI) are increasingly used to treat non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and there is a critical need for novel predictive/prognostic biomarkers. We evaluated whether dynamics of circulating tumor (ctDNA) can identify NSCLC patients who benefit from single agent ICI.MethodsCirculating cell-free DNA (cfDNA) from 177 patients was analyzed prior ICI and at first treatment evaluation using a Commercial 77-gene panel. We performed de novo mutation calling and corrected for variants related clonal hematopoiesis. ctDNA changes were evaluated as predictors of tumor response estimated with PET/diagnostic CT and survival.ResultsMutations were detected in 159 of 174 (91.4%) analyzable patients. Most responders presented decreasing ctDNA levels, while non-responders had mixed molecular responses. Patients with a >50% molecular ctDNA decrease or no detectable ctDNA demonstrated improved PFS (5.9 versus 1.8 months; HR 0.49, 95%CI, 0.35-0.67, P < .001), and OS (18.9 versus 9.9 months; HR 0.41, 95%CI, 0.30-0.57, P < .001) compared to patients not ...
