Abecma Continues to Improve Survival in Heavily Pretreated Patients With Multiple Myeloma – Curetoday.com

Posted: June 7, 2021 at 1:48 am

Abecma (idecabtagene vicleucel ; ide-cel; formerly bb2121), a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy, led to improved survival in patients with multiple myeloma who have been treated with many other lines of therapy, according to updated results from the KarMMa trial presented at the 2021 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting.1

The favorable benefit risk profile of ide-cel, regardless of the number of prior lines of therapy, supports its role as a treatment option for heavily pretreated relapse refractory multiple myeloma, Dr. Larry D. Anderson, associate professor, UT Southwestern Medical Center, said during a presentation of the poster.

At the December 21, 2020, data cutoff, the average follow-up was 24.8 months (range, 1.7-33.6).

Overall response rate (ORR) the percentage of patients who responded to the treatment was 73% in the overall population, including a 33% complete response rate, where disease could not be detected (CRR; complete response [CR] or stringent complete response [sCR]), 20% with a very good partial response (VGPR), and 20% who had a partial response (PR). ORR rates were 50%, 69%, and 81%, respectively, across the 150, 300, and 450 million CAR T cell-dose arms, including CR/sCR rates of 25%, 29%, and 39%.

Of note, ORR did not vary by the number of prior lines of therapy received. For those who received three prior lines of therapy (a total of 15 patients), the ORR was 73%, including a CRR of 53% and VGPR of 20%, compared with an ORR of 73% in those who received four or more (112 patients) lines of therapy, including a CRR of 30%, VGPR of 23%, and PR of 20%.

Average duration of response (DOR; the time patients disease was stable or in remission after being treated) was 10.9 months, including 9.9 months for the 300 million CAR T cells-dose arm and 11.3 months for the 450 million CAR T cells-dose arm -dose arm. Median DOR was 21.5 months in patients who experienced a CR or sCR. Median DOR by response were 21.5 months among those who experienced a CR; 10.4 months for those with VGPR; and 4.5 months in those with PRs.

Moreover, the rate of event-free 24-month DOR appeared to be similar in patients who received three or four or more lines of therapy. For those who received three lines of prior therapy, median DOR was eight months, compared with 10.9 months in those who received four or more lines of therapy.

Average progression-free survival (PFS) meaning the length of time after treatment when the disease does not get worse was 8.6 months across all target doses, including 5.8 months for the 300 million CAR T cells-dose arm and 12.2 months for the 450 million CAR T cells-dose arm -dose arm. Similarly, average PFS was similar among those who previously received three lines of therapy, compared with four or more prior lines of therapy (8.6 months vs 8.9 months, respectively).

On average, it took patients about one month to respond to therapy and about 2.8 months to experience a CR.

Median overall survival (OS) was 24.8 months, including a median OS of 22.0 months in those who received three lines of prior therapy and 25.2 months in those who received four or more lines of prior therapy. Moreover, OS was 20 months or longer across several key high-risk subgroups, including those aged 65 or older (21.7 months), those with extramedullary disease (20.2 months), and those with triple refractory disease (21.7 months).

Regarding side effects, cytokine release syndrome (CRS; the effect of many inflammatory cytokine immune cells being release into the blood stream) and neurotoxicity (brain and/or nervous system damage) rates were similar, regardless of prior lines of therapy received, and were mostly low grade. In total, 85% and 18% of the overall population experienced at least 1 CRS or neurotoxicity event, respectively.

The safety profile of Abecma was consistent with long-term follow-up, with similar rates of infections and secondary primary malignancies, and no unexpected gene therapy related toxicities were observed. The most common grade 3 to 4 side effects in the overall population were neutropenia (89%), anemia (61%), thrombocytopenia (52%), leukopenia (39%), lymphopenia (27%) and infections (27%).

Long-term results from the KarMMA trial continue to demonstrate frequent, deep, and durable responses in heavily pretreated patients with [relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma], the study authors write in the poster. ORR, CRR, DOR and PFS were consistent with previous reports and patients received similar benefit regardless of the number of prior lines of therapy.

In his presentation, Anderson presented data on long-term efficacy and safety following treatment with Abecma in the pivotal phase 2 KarMMa trial (NCT03361748)-including overall data and by prior line of therapy that patients had received (three compared to four or more), since the FDA label is requiring at least four prior lines, and this study only required three, he added.

In total, 140 patients who had received at least three prior lines of therapy for multiple myeloma including an IMiD, a PI, and an anti-CD38 antibody and were refractory to their last treatment regimen, were enrolled in the study. However, only 128 patients received infusion with Abecma.

Patients were treated with Abecma across the target dose range of 150 (four patients), 300 (70 patients), and 450 (54 patients) million CAR T cells.

ORR served as the primary end point of the study. Secondary end points included CRR, safety, DOR, PFS, OS, pharmacokinetics, minimal residual disease, quality of life and health economics and outcomes research.

At the start of the trial, the average patient age was 61 years (range, 33-78) and patients had a median of six years (range, 1-18) since their diagnosis. A majority of the patients were male (59%), had high tumor burden (51%), B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) expression 50% or more at screening (85%), ECOG performance status which measures how functional a patient is on a range of 1 (fully functioning) to 5 (dead) of 1 (53%), and Revised International Staging System disease stage of II (70%). Thirty-five percent of patients had high-risk features.2

The median number of prior therapies was six (range, 3-16) and 94% had previously undergone at least one autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant (94%). Eighty-eight percent of patients required bridging therapy, a kind of pre-treatment before CAR-T cell thearpy. Eighty-nine percent of patients had double-refractory disease, 84% were triple-refractory and 26% were penta-refractory.

Patients who had received three prior lines of therapy had similar baseline characteristics, compared with those who received four or more prior lines, including differences in extramedullary disease, high-risk cytogenetics, prior refractoriness and time since the initial diagnosis to screening.

Patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma previously exposed to immunomodulatory agents, protease inhibitors, and anti-CD38 antibodies have poor outcomes with subsequent therapy using previously approved regimens, with expected response rates in the 26% to 31% range, PFS in the two- to four-month range, and overall survival less than nine months, Anderson explained.

However, the BCMA-directed CAR-T cell therapy previously demonstrated favorable tolerability with deep, durable responses in patients who were heavily pretreated with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.As a result, the FDA approved the agent for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma after four or more prior therapies, including an immunomodulatory drug, a proteasome inhibitor, and an anti-CD38 antibody, representing the first BCMAdirected CAR T-cell therapy approved.

The study authors noted that is being explored in ongoing clinical trials, including the following:

CAR T Cells Have Reshaped the Hematologic Cancer Landscape – Targeted Oncology

Posted: June 7, 2021 at 1:48 am

Michael Bishop, MD, a professor of medicine and director of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Program at The University of Chicago Medicine, discussesthe different settings where chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy are used.

Bishop thinks CAR T-cell therapy made a significant impact upon patient care. CAR T cells are indicated for 3 main groups of patients. The first is for non-Hodgkin lymphoma and for pediatric and young adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), which has FDA-approved agents. More recent approvals have been for patients with mantle cell lymphoma. Physicians are waiting for what they expect to be the first indication for CAR T-cell therapy in multiple myeloma.

Starting with ALL for the pediatric population, CAR T cells have been a game changer, according to Bishop. These young patients have median overall survivals of less than 6 months, but the high response rates with CAR T are enabling them to potentially go on to an allogeneic stem cell transplant and in some cases, be free of disease.

In the non-Hodgkin lymphoma setting, there are now 3 products indicated for advanced B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which is significant for patients with totally refractory disease. There is this therapeutic option that is potentially curative. Bishop says investigators are seeing patients out to 5 years without any further therapy after receiving CAR T cells.

Fate Therapeutics Highlights Positive Interim Data from its Phase 1 Study of FT516 in Combination with – GlobeNewswire

Posted: June 7, 2021 at 1:47 am

8 of 11 Patients in Dose Escalation Cohorts 2 and 3 Achieved Objective Response

6 of 11 Patients Achieved Complete Response, including 2 Patients Previously Treated with Autologous CD19 CAR T-cell Therapy

Favorable FT516 Safety Profile Was Observed; No FT516-related Serious Adverse Events or FT516-related Grade 3 or Greater Adverse Events

Outpatient Treatment Regimen Was Well-tolerated; No Events of Any Grade of Cytokine Release Syndrome, Immune Effector Cell-Associated Neurotoxicity Syndrome, or Graft-vs-Host Disease

SAN DIEGO, June 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fate Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: FATE), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of programmed cellular immunotherapies for cancer, today highlighted positive interim Phase 1 data from the Companys FT516 program for patients with relapsed / refractory B-cell lymphoma at the 2021 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting being held virtually June 4-8, 2021. FT516 is the Companys universal, off-the-shelf natural killer (NK) cell product candidate derived from a clonal master induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line engineered with a novel high-affinity, non-cleavable CD16 (hnCD16) Fc receptor, which is designed to maximize antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC), a potent anti-tumor mechanism by which NK cells recognize, bind and kill antibody-coated cancer cells. The ongoing Phase 1 dose-escalation study of FT516 is currently enrolling patients in the fourth dose cohort of 900 million cells per dose.

As of the data cutoff date of March 11, 2021, four patients in the second dose cohort of 90 million cells per dose and seven patients in the third dose cohort of 300 million cells per dose were evaluable for assessment of safety and efficacy. Eight of eleven patients achieved an objective response, including six patients who achieved a complete response, as assessed by PET-CT scan per Lugano 2014 criteria (see Table 1). Patients had received a median of three prior lines of therapy and a median of two prior lines containing CD20-targeted therapy. Of the eleven patients, eight patients had aggressive B-cell lymphoma, five patients were refractory to their most recent prior therapy, and four patients were previously treated with autologous CD19 CAR-T cell therapy.

These additional data from our Phase 1 study of FT516 administered off-the-shelf in the outpatient setting continue to reinforce its differentiated safety profile and underscore its potential clinical benefit, said Wayne Chu, M.D., Senior Vice President of Clinical Development of Fate Therapeutics. Based on the favorable therapeutic profile of FT516 that continues to emerge and the potential to treat patients on-demand without delay, we plan to initiate multiple indication-specific, dose-expansion cohorts for patients with B-cell lymphomas to broadly assess FT516 in combination with CD20-targeted monoclonal antibody regimens, including those used as standard-of-care in earlier-line settings.

The ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial in relapsed / refractory B-cell lymphoma is assessing FT516 in an off-the-shelf treatment regimen of up to two cycles, with each cycle consisting of three days of conditioning chemotherapy (500 mg/m2 of cyclophosphamide and 30 mg/m2 of fludarabine), a single-dose of rituximab (375 mg/m2), and three weekly doses of FT516 each with IL-2 cytokine support. The FT516 treatment regimen is designed to be administered in the outpatient setting.

Safety DataNo dose-limiting toxicities, and no FT516-related serious adverse events or FT516-related Grade 3 or greater adverse events, were observed. The FT516 treatment regimen was well tolerated, and no treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) of any grade of cytokine release syndrome, immune effector cell-associated neurotoxicity syndrome, or graft-versus-host disease were reported by investigators (see Table 2). All Grade 3 or greater TEAEs were consistent with lympho-conditioning chemotherapy and underlying disease. Of note, a Grade 3 or greater TEAE of infection was reported in one patient only. There were no discontinuations due to adverse events, and no patients withdrew from the study except in the setting of disease progression. In addition, no evidence of anti-product T- or B-cell mediated host-versus-product alloreactivity was detected, supporting the potential to safely administer up to six doses of FT516 in the outpatient setting without the need for patient matching.

Activity DataAs of the data cutoff date of March 11, 2021, eleven relapsed / refractory patients in the second and third dose cohorts were evaluable for assessment of safety and efficacy. Of the eleven patients, nine patients completed both FT516 treatment cycles and eight patients achieved an objective response, including six patients who achieved a complete response, as assessed by PET-CT scan per Lugano 2014 criteria. Notably, two of four patients previously treated with autologous CD19 CAR-T cell therapy achieved a complete response. Two patients showed progressive disease following the first FT516 treatment cycle and discontinued treatment. The Company previously reported that two patients treated in the first dose cohort (30 million cells per dose) showed progressive disease.

Patient Case StudyThe ASCO presentation featured a case study of a 36-year old male with triple-hit, high-grade B-cell lymphoma with rearrangements of MYC, BCL2, and BCL6 genes. The patient was refractory to all prior lines of therapy with the exception of autologous CD19 CAR T-cell therapy, for which a complete response of two months duration was achieved. The patient was most recently refractory to an investigational CD20-targeted T-cell engager and presented with bulky lymphadenopathy with the largest lesion measuring approximately 10 centimeters. The first FT516 treatment cycle resulted in a complete response with resolution of all metabolically active disease and 85% reduction in the size of target lesions. Subsequent to the data cutoff date of March 11, 2021, the patient completed a second FT516 treatment cycle after which the response assessment continued to show complete response.

About Fate Therapeutics iPSC Product PlatformThe Companys proprietary induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) product platform enables mass production of off-the-shelf, engineered, homogeneous cell products that are designed to be administered with multiple doses to deliver more effective pharmacologic activity, including in combination with other cancer treatments. Human iPSCs possess the unique dual properties of unlimited self-renewal and differentiation potential into all cell types of the body. The Companys first-of-kind approach involves engineering human iPSCs in a one-time genetic modification event and selecting a single engineered iPSC for maintenance as a clonal master iPSC line. Analogous to master cell lines used to manufacture biopharmaceutical drug products such as monoclonal antibodies, clonal master iPSC lines are a renewable source for manufacturing cell therapy products which are well-defined and uniform in composition, can be mass produced at significant scale in a cost-effective manner, and can be delivered off-the-shelf for patient treatment. As a result, the Companys platform is uniquely designed to overcome numerous limitations associated with the production of cell therapies using patient- or donor-sourced cells, which is logistically complex and expensive and is subject to batch-to-batch and cell-to-cell variability that can affect clinical safety and efficacy. Fate Therapeutics iPSC product platform is supported by an intellectual property portfolio of over 350 issued patents and 150 pending patent applications.

About FT516FT516 is an investigational, universal, off-the-shelf natural killer (NK) cell cancer immunotherapy derived from a clonal master induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line engineered to express a novel high-affinity 158V, non-cleavable CD16 (hnCD16) Fc receptor, which has been modified to prevent its down-regulation and to enhance its binding to tumor-targeting antibodies. CD16 mediates antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC), a potent anti-tumor mechanism by which NK cells recognize, bind and kill antibody-coated cancer cells. ADCC is dependent on NK cells maintaining stable and effective expression of CD16, which has been shown to undergo considerable down-regulation in cancer patients. In addition, CD16 occurs in two variants, 158V or 158F, that elicit high or low binding affinity, respectively, to the Fc domain of IgG1 antibodies. Scientists from the Company have shown in a peer-reviewed publication (Blood. 2020;135(6):399-410) that hnCD16 iPSC-derived NK cells, compared to peripheral blood NK cells, elicit a more durable anti-tumor response and extend survival in combination with anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies in an in vivo xenograft mouse model of human lymphoma. Numerous clinical studies with FDA-approved tumor-targeting antibodies, including rituximab, trastuzumab and cetuximab, have demonstrated that patients homozygous for the 158V variant, which is present in only about 15% of patients, have improved clinical outcomes. FT516 is being investigated in a multi-dose Phase 1 clinical trial as a monotherapy for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia and in combination with CD20-targeted monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of advanced B-cell lymphoma (NCT04023071). Additionally, FT516 is being investigated in a multi-dose Phase 1 clinical trial in combination with avelumab for the treatment of advanced solid tumor resistant to anti-PDL1 checkpoint inhibitor therapy (NCT04551885).

In Some Heavily Pretreated Patients with R/R MM Ide-Cel Continues to Show Deep and Durable Responses – Targeted Oncology

Posted: June 7, 2021 at 1:47 am

Long-term follow-up data from the KarMMa trial found that treatment with the chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy, idecabtagene vicleucel (ide-cel; formerly bb2121; Abecma), continues to demonstrate improved survival among heavily pretreated patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, according to a presentation presented at the 2021 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting.1

The favorable benefit risk profile of ide-cel, regardless of the number of prior lines of therapy, supports its role as a treatment option for heavily pretreated relapse refractory multiple myeloma, Larry D. Anderson, MD, PhD, associate professor, UT Southwestern Medical Center, said during a presentation of the poster.

At the December 21, 2020, data cutoff, the median follow-up was 24.8 months (range, 1.7-33.6).

Overall response rate (ORR) was 73% in the overall population, including a 33% complete response rate (CRR; complete response [CR] or stringent complete response [sCR]), 20% with a very good partial response (VGPR), and 20% who had a partial response (PR). ORR rates were 50%, 69%, and 81%, respectively, across the 150, 300, and 450 million CAR T cell-dose arms, including CR/sCR rates of 25%, 29%, and 39%.

Of note, ORR did not vary by the number of prior lines of therapy received. For those who received 3 prior lines of therapy (n = 15), the ORR was 73%, including a CRR of 53% and VGPR of 20%, compared with an ORR of 73% in those who received 4 (n = 112) lines of therapy, including a CRR of 30%, VGPR of 23%, and PR of 20%.

Median duration of response (DOR) was 10.9 months (95% CI, 9.0-11.4), including 9.9 months for the 300 million CAR T cells-dose arm and 11.3 months for the 450 million CAR T cells-dose arm -dose arm. Median DOR was 21.5 months in patients who experienced a CR or sCR. Median DOR by response were 21.5 months (95% CI, 12.5 to not estimable [NE]) among those who experienced a CR, 10.4 months (95% CI, 5.1-12.2) for those with VGPR, and 4.5 months (95% CI, 2.9-6.7) in those with PRs.

Moreover, the rate of event-free 24-month DOR appeared to be similar in patients who received 3 or 4 or more lines of therapy. For those who received 3 lines of prior therapy, median DOR was 8.0 months (95% CI, 3.3-11.4), compared with 10.9 months (95% CI, 9.2-13.5) in those who received 4 or more lines of therapy.

Median progression-free survival (PFS) was 8.6 months (95% CI, 5.6-11.6) across all target doses, including 5.8 months for the 300 million CAR T cells-dose arm and 12.2 months for the 450 million CAR T cells-dose arm -dose arm. Similarly, median PFS was similar among those who previously received 3 lines of therapy, compared with 4 or more prior lines of therapy (8.6 months (95% CI, 2.9-12.1) vs 8.9 months (95% CI, 5.4-11.6)]

The median time to first response was 1 month (range, 0.5-8.8), with a median time to CR of 2.8 months (range, 1.0-15.8).

Median overall survival (OS) was 24.8 months (95% CI, 19.9-31.2), including a median OS of 22.0 months (95% CI, 10.-NE) in those who received 3 lines of prior therapy and 25.2 months (95% CI, 19.9-NE) in those who received 4 or more lines of prior therapy. Moreover, OS was 20 months or longer across several key high-risk subgroups, including those aged 65 or older (21.7 months; 95% CI, 17.1-31.2), those with extramedullary disease (20.2 months; 95% CI, 15.5-28.3), and those with triple refractory disease (21.7 months; 95% CI, 18.2-NE).

In regards to safety, cytokine release syndrome (CRS) and neurotoxicity were similar, regardless of prior lines of therapy received, and were mostly low grade. In total, 85% and 18% of the overall population experienced at least 1 CRS or neurotoxicity event, respectively.

The safety profile of ide-cel was consistent with long-term follow-up, with similar rates of infections and secondary primary malignancies, and no unexpected gene therapy related toxicities were observed. The most common grade 3 to 4 adverse events (AEs) in the overall population were neutropenia (89%), anemia (61%), thrombocytopenia (52%), leukopenia (39%), lymphopenia (27%), and infections (27%).

Long-term results from the KarMMA trial continue to demonstrate frequent, deep, and durable responses in heavily pretreated patients with [relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma], the study authors write in the poster. ORR, CRR, DOR, and PFS were consistent with previous reports and patients received similar benefit regardless of the number of prior lines of therapy.

In his presentation, Anderson presented data on long-term efficacy and safety following treatment with ide-cel in the pivotal phase 2 KarMMa trial (NCT03361748)-including overall data and by prior line of therapy that patients had received (3 vs 4), since the FDA label is requiring at least 4 prior lines, and this study only required 3, he added.

In total, 140 patients who had received at least 3 prior lines of therapy for multiple myeloma including an IMiD, a PI, and an anti-CD38 antibody and were refractory to their last treatment regimen, were enrolled in the study. However, only 128 patients received infusion with ide-cel.

Patients were treated with ide-cel across the target dose range of 150 (n = 4), 300 (n = 70), and 450 (n = 54) million CAR T cells.

ORR served as the primary end point of the study. Secondary end points included CRR, safety, DOR, PFS, OS, pharmacokinetics, minimal residual disease, quality of life, and health economics and outcomes research.

At baseline, the median patient age was 61 years (range, 33-78) and patients had a median of 6 years (range, 1-18) since their diagnosis. A majority of the patients were male (59%), had high tumor burden (51%), B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) expression 50% at screening (85%), ECOG performance status of 1 (53%), and Revised International Staging System disease stage of II (70%). Thirty-five percent of patients had high-risk features.2

The median number of prior therapies was 6 (range, 3-16) and 94% had previously undergone at least 1 autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant (94%). Eighty-eight percent of patients required bridging therapy. Eighty-nine percent of patients had double-refractory disease, 84% were triple-refractory, and 26% were penta-refractory.

Patients who had received 3 prior lines of therapy had similar baseline characteristics, compared with those who received 4 prior lines, including differences in extramedullary disease, high-risk cytogenetics, prior refractoriness, and time since the initial diagnosis to screening.

Patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma previously exposed to immunomodulatory agents, protease inhibitors, and anti-CD38 antibodies have poor outcomes with subsequent therapy using previously approved regimens, with expected response rates in the 26% to 31% range, PFS in the 2- to 4-month range, and overall survival less than 9 months, Anderson explained.

However, the BCMA-directed CAR T-cell therapy previously demonstrated favorable tolerability with deep, durable responses in patients who were heavily pretreated with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.2 As a result, the FDA approved the agent for the treatment of adult patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma after 4 or more prior therapies, including an immunomodulatory drug, a proteasome inhibitor, and an anti-CD38 antibody, representing the first BCMAdirected CAR T-cell therapy approved.3

The study authors noted that ide-cel is being explored in ongoing clinical trials, including the following:
