Durvalumab plus Tremelimumab for the Treatment of Patients (pts) with Advanced Neuroendocrine Neoplasms (NENs) of Lung or Gastroenteropancreatic (GEP) Origin. A Phase II Multicohort Trial (DUNE Trial / GETNE 1601) Abstract #2068

Introduction: Immuno check-point inhibitors development in grade 1-2 NENs is limited by low mutation tumor load and PD-1/PDL-1 expression. The combination of an PDL-1 and CTLA-4 inhibitors could increase the probability of success in this setting. In high grade NENs the rational for immunotherapy is stronger based on experiences in small cell lung cancer.
Aim(s): This prospective, multi-center, open label, phase II study (EudraCT:2016-002858-20) will evaluate the efficacy and safety of Durvalumab plus Tremelimumab within four different cohorts: Well-moderately differentiated lung NENs (1), grade 1-2 gastrointestinal NENs (2), grade 1-2 pancreatic NENs (3) and grade 3 GEP NENs (4).
Materials and methods: Pts included in the trial must have progressed to all standard therapies in each setting for lung and GEP grade 1-2 NENs up to 4 prior lines. For pts included in cohort 4, progression to platinum-based chemotherapy is mandatory. All pts will receive durvalumab 1500 mg every 28 days for 12 months, and tremelimumab 75 mg Q4W up to 4 doses/cycles. Retreatment is allowed after progression in the follow-up period. The primary endpoint for cohorts 1-3 is disease control rate at 9 months including the percentage of pts achieving complete or partial response, or stable disease according to RECIST v1.1; for cohort 4 the primary endpoint will be median overall survival. These endpoints will be assessed by investigators and confirmed by central radiological review. Secondary endpoints include median progression-free survival, safety and tolerability and a wide panel of biomarkers in blood and tumor samples.

#2795 Molecular Correlation of the Activity of Evofosfamide (EVO) in Combination with Sunitinib (SUN) in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (pNETs) in the SUNEVO GETNE Trial
Introduction: MEN1, DAXX, ATRX, and PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway genes are frequently mutated in pNETs. Sunitinib is approved and widely used in the metastatic setting but unfortunately, no validated predictive biomarker has been identified to guide therapy yet. The SUNEVO phase II trial of the Spanish Task Force Group for Neuroendocrine and Endocrine Tumours (GETNE) trial combined the pro-drug of EVO under SUN-induced hypoxic conditions.
