Durvalumab (MEDI4736) Plus Tremelimumab for Advanced Neuroendocrine Neoplasms of Gastroenteropancreatic or Lung Origin


Brief description of study

Well-differentiated gastroenteropancreatic and lung neuroendocrine tumors are generally malignancies with a prolonged natural history. However, clinical behavior is heterogeneous and when tumor progression is observed, treatment options are limited. The most used therapy for neuroendocrine tumors management are somatostatin analogs. However, even the use in lung carcinoids is quite usual, no antitumoral activity has been demonstrated. Tremelimumab and Durvalumab combination could be more efficient drugs to improve immune system activation and could obtain a significantly higher clinical benefit in these patients. Tremelimumab and Durvalumab would be the first immune combination agents showing efficacy in neuroendocrine neoplasms of different origins.

Detailed Study Description

Prospective, multi-center, open label, stratified, exploratory, phase II study evaluating the efficacy and safety of durvalumab plus tremelimumab in different cohorts of patients with advanced/metastatic, histologically confirmed, grade 1/2 (G1/G2) of the 2010 WHO classification neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas, gastrointestinal tract and lung origins and grade 3 (G3) of gastroenteropancreactic system or unknown primary site (excluding lung primaries) after progression to previous therapies.
