1 Precision Medicine Lessons from meta-analyses of 70,253 patients Razelle Kurzrock, MD Senior Deputy Director, Clinical Science Director, Center for Personalized Cancer Therapy and Clinical Trials Office Chief, Division of Hematology/Oncology UCSD Moores Cancer Center

2 Meta-Analyses Conducted 1) Trials leading to FDA approval from trastuzumab (1998) until June ,104 patients; 112 trials 2) Phase II studies published between 2010 through ,149 patients; 570 trials Maria Schwaederle, PharmD

3 Background Treatment selection based on biomarkers reflecting the underlying cancer biology or specific features have brought remarkable advances in oncology. However, the evidence supporting the benefit of a personalized or biomarker-based approach to cancer research and treatment is still a matter of debate. GOAL: compare efficacy outcomes (RR, PFS and OS) and treatment-related mortality between agents developed under a biomarker-based rationale (personalized therapy) versus those that did not.

4 META ANALYSIS STUDY #1 PHASE III TRIALS

6 Trials leading to FDA approval Search: Newly approved agents from September 1998 (trastuzumab) until June 2013 PubMed or ASCO meetings abstracts. Excluded: Pediatric cancer, supportive care, loco-regional treatment, hormonal therapies, vaccines Endpoints: Response rate (RR), progression-free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS), and toxicity-related deaths.

7 Biomarker-based approach (personalized strategy) definition Treatment met one of the following criteria: Cognate biomarker used to select patients for treatment No biomarker used, but at least 50% of patients are known to harbor the cognate biomarker.

8 Search Results TOTAL 112 trials 57 randomized 55 non-randomized trials Enrolled a total of 38,104 patients

10 Benefit of personalized therapy in randomized registration trials (RR, PFS, and OS) Statistical analysis: meta-analysis of relative response rate ratio (RRR) and hazards ratios (HRs) for PFS and OS for personalized trials versus not (random effect model) RRR: higher likelihood of response with a personalized compared to non-personalized strategy (RRR=3.82 [95%CI: ] vs [95%CI: ], (P=0.03 in meta-regression). HR for PFS: 0.41 (95%CI: ) for personalized compared to 0.59 (95%CI: ) for non-personalized studies, (P<.001 in meta-regression). HR for OS: 0.71 (95%CI: ) for personalized compared to 0.81 (95%CI: ) for non-personalized studies (P=0.07 in meta-regression)

11 Benefits of personalized therapy in all trials (N=112) (RR, PFS, and OS) Stat analysis: random effect meta-analysis for RR; pooled analysis for PFS, and OS for personalized trials versus not (weighted multiple linear regression models) RR: 48% for personalized strategy [95%CI 42-55%] vs. 23% [95%CI 20-27%], P<.001 (also P<.001 after adjustement). PFS: 8.3 months for personalized strategy vs. 5.5 months, P<.001 (P=0.002 after adjustement). OS: 19.3 months for personalized strategy compared to 13.5 months, P=0.01 (P=0.04 after adjustement). Treatment-related mortality was 1.58 percent for personalized versus 1.44 percent for non-personalized trials, which was not statistically different (P=0.74).

Exclusion criteria: pediatric cancers, supportive care, loco-regional treatments, hormonal therapies, and cellular or vaccine therapy. 570 Phase II studies were included, comprising 32,149 patients (641 single-agent arms).

22 Summary of results A personalized strategy was independently associated with higher RRs, longer median PFS and OS (all P ), as well as fewer toxic deaths (P<0.001; 1.5% vs. 2.3%) Both a personalized-direct (alteration was the direct target of the drug tested) and personalized-indirect correlated with better outcomes (all P<0.001). Personalized arms using a genomic alteration (vs. protein overexpression) as biomarker had higher RR, prolonged PFS and OS (all P<0.05). Targeted arms using a personalized strategy had statistically improved outcomes compared to targeted arms that lacked a personalized approach (All P ).

23 CONCLUSIONS Non-personalized targeted arms led to poorer outcomes than cytotoxics arms (All P, except P=0.048 for OS meta-analysis). Worst outcome Best outcome ARMS type Non-personalized targeted RR (%) POOLED Analysis PFS (Mos) OS (Mos) RR (%) Meta-analysis PFS (Mos) OS (Mos) Cytotoxic Personalized targeted
