Background: Among post-osimertinib (osi), chemotherapy-naïve patients (pts) treated with amivantamab (ami) and lazertinib (laz) in CHRYSALIS Cohort E, NGS of baseline ctDNA and tumor tissue revealed pts with identified EGFR/MET-based resistance (eg, EGFR C797S or MET amplification) were slightly more likely to respond versus those without EGFR/MET-based resistance (ORR=47% vs 29%), but about half of responders had unknown resistance mechanisms (Bauml JCO 2021; 39:15_suppl, 9006). In CHRYSALIS-2 Cohort A (NCT04077463), ami + laz demonstrated an ORR of 33% in the post-osi and platinum-based chemotherapy population (Shu JCO 2022; 40:16_suppl, 9006). This analysis investigated whether EGFR/MET-dependent resistance by ctDNA correlated with response.
Methods: Cohort A examined ami + laz in EGFR exon19del or L858R mutated advanced NSCLC whose disease progressed on osi as well as platinum-based chemotherapy. ORR was verified through blinded independent central review. Plasma samples were collected prior to treatment; ctDNA was analyzed by Guardant360.
Results: A total of 162 pts were enrolled; of these, 110 (68%) had analyzable ctDNA data, with most common mutations observed in EGFR and TP53. Twenty-eight (25%) pts had resistance categorized as EGFR/MET-dependent and 31 (28%) as EGFR/MET-independent; no genetic resistance mechanism was identified in 51 (46%). The ORR
was 29% and 26% in EGFR/MET-dependent and independent pts, respectively. ORR in pts with an unknown resistance mechanism was 39% (Table).
Conclusions: Among pts who progressed on osi and platinum-based chemotherapy, genetic profiling of osi resistance by ctDNA did not predict response, with many responders having unknown resistance mechanisms. These results suggest alternative biomarker approaches are needed to identify pts most likely to benefit from ami + laz.
