Sintilimab Combined With Anlotinib in Third Line or Beyond Among Advanced SCLC Patients

2019-08-18 20:09:36 | BioPortfolio


Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) accounts for 10-15% of lung cancer. More than 70% of SCLC patients are diagnosed with advanced stage initially. SCLC is highly chemo-sensitive, the first-line treatment is platinum-containing double-drug chemotherapy. Although the objective response rate (ORR) of first-line chemotherapy is as high as 60-80%, the duration of response is very short, and there is little effective follow-up treatment. The outcome of SCLC patients is poor with an overall survival (OS) of about 10 months.

In August 2018, the FDA approved Nivolumab as a third-line treatment for advanced SCLC patients, which is the only immunotherapeutic drug approved for SCLC till now. Sintilimab is another PD-1 inhibitor produced by China and has been approved by cFDA for lymphoma. Anlotinib is a novel multi-target tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) with effect of anti-tumor angiogenesis and tumor growth inhibition. The results of ALTER1202 show that compared with placebo, Anlotinib single-agent as three-line treatment in advanced SCLC was effective, the median progression free survival (PFS) were 4.1 versus 0.7 months, respectively (P < 0.0001).

Immunotherapy combined with anti-angiogenic therapy has been proven effective and tolerable in non-small cell lung caner (NSCLC), while its efficacy and safety in SCLC has not been reported. Therefore, the investigators conduct this study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Sintilimab combined with Anlotinib versus Anlotinib alone in third line or beyond among advanced SCLC patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.

A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

A quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.

A cell adhesion molecule that contains extracellular immunoglobulin V and C2 domains. It mediates homophilic and heterophilic cell-cell adhesion independently of calcium, and acts as a tumor suppressor in NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CANCER (NSCLC) cells. Its interaction with NATURAL KILLER CELLS is important for their cytotoxicity and its expression by MAST CELLS plays a role in their interaction with neurons; it may also function in synapse assembly, nerve growth and differentiation.
