Durvalumab and Tremelimumab in Treating Patients With Recurrent Stage IV Lung Cancer

2017-12-21 10:37:11 | BioPortfolio


This phase II trial studies how well durvalumab and tremelimumab works in treating patients with stage IV lung cancer that has come back after previous treatment. Monoclonal antibodies, such as durvalumab and tremelimumab, may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.



I. To evaluate the objective response rate (confirmed and unconfirmed, complete and partial) by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 among patients treated with durvalumab (MEDI4736) plus tremelimumab.


I. To estimate the duration of response (DoR) among patients who achieve a complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) (confirmed and unconfirmed) by RECIST 1.1.

II. To estimate the duration of response (DoR) per immune-related response criteria among patients who achieve a complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) (confirmed and unconfirmed) by RECIST 1.1.

III. To evaluate overall survival (OS) among patients treated with durvalumab (MEDI4736) plus tremelimumab.

IV. To evaluate investigator-assessed progression-free survival (IA-PFS) among patients treated with durvalumab (MEDI4736) plus tremelimumab.

V. To evaluate IA-PFS assessed by immune-related response criteria (irRC-IA-PFS) among patients treated with durvalumab (MEDI4736) plus tremelimumab.

VI. To evaluate the frequency and severity of toxicities associated with durvalumab (MEDI4736) plus tremelimumab.


I. To explore the association of potential predictive markers identified in S1400A, with response and progression-free survival (PFS).

II. To explore the association of PD-L1 expression status with response and PFS.

III. To contribute to an ongoing serum and tumor bank in S1400.


Patients receive tremelimumab intravenously (IV) over 60 minutes on day 1 for courses 1-4 and durvalumab IV over 60 minutes on day 1. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 6 months for 2 years, and then at the end of year 3.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Neoplasms composed of squamous cells of the epithelium. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in tissue composed of squamous elements.

Body of knowledge related to the use of organisms, cells or cell-derived constituents for the purpose of developing products which are technically, scientifically and clinically useful. Alteration of biologic function at the molecular level (i.e., GENETIC ENGINEERING) is a central focus; laboratory methods used include TRANSFECTION and CLONING technologies, sequence and structure analysis algorithms, computer databases, and gene and protein structure function analysis and prediction.

Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.

Unusual tumor affecting any site of the body, but most often encountered in the head and neck. Considerable debate has surrounded the histogenesis of this neoplasm; however, it is considered to be a myoblastoma of, usually, a benign nature. It affects women more often than men. When it develops beneath the epidermis or mucous membrane, it can lead to proliferation of the squamous cells and mimic squamous cell carcinoma.

A carcinoma derived from stratified squamous epithelium. It may also occur in sites where glandular or columnar epithelium is normally present. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
