Copenhagen prospective personalized oncology (COPPO)—Clinical utility of using molecular profiling to select patients to phase I trials
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
Purpose: We evaluated the clinical benefit of tumor molecular profiling to select treatment in the phase I setting. Experimental Design: Patients with advanced solid cancers and exhausted treatment options referred to a phase I unit were included in a prospective, single-center, single-arm open-label study (NCT02290522). Tumor biopsies were obtained for comprehensive genomic analysis including whole-exome sequencing and RNA sequencing. When possible, patients were treated with regimen matched to the genomic profile. Primary endpoint was progression-free survival (PFS). Results: From May 2013 to January 2017, a total of 591 patients were enrolled, with 500 patients undergoing biopsy. Genomic profiles were obtained in 460 patients and a potential actionable target was identified in 352 (70%) of 500 biopsied patients. A total of 101 patients (20%) received matched treatment based on either gene mutations or RNA expression levels of targets available in early clinical trials or off-label treatment. Objective response according to RECIST1.1 was observed in 15 of 101 patients (0% complete response, 15% partial response), with a median PFS of 12 weeks (95% confidence interval, 9.9–14.4). Conclusions: Our study supports the feasibility of genomic profiling to select patients in the phase I setting and suggests that genomic matching can be beneficial for a minor subset of patients with no other treatment options. Randomized studies may validate this assumption.
