Brief Summary:
This study is a Phase 2, open-label, multicenter study evaluating adoptive cell therapy (ACT) with autologous TIL therapy (LN-145) in combination with Anti-PD-L1 inhibitor durvalumab.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non Small Cell Lung Cancer Biological: LN-145 Drug: Durvalumab Phase 2

Detailed Description:
LN-145 is an adoptive cell transfer therapy that utilizes an autologous TIL manufacturing process, as originally developed by the NCI. The cell transfer therapy used in this study involves patients receiving a nonmyeloablative (NMA) lymphocyte depleting preparative regimen, followed by infusion of autologous TIL followed by the administration of a regimen of IL-2.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 12 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2 Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Autologous Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes (LN-145) In Combination With Anti-PD-L1 Inhibitor Durvalumab (MEDI4736) in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
Actual Study Start Date : February 28, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2024

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: A maximum of 24 months ]
    To evaluate efficacy using the objective response rate (ORR)

  2. ≥ Grade 3 Treatment-Emergent Adverse Event [ Time Frame: A maximum of 24 months ]
    To evaluate the safety as measured by any ≥ Grade 3 treatment-emergent adverse event (TEAE) rate

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Duration of Response [ Time Frame: A maximum of 24 months ]
    To further evaluate efficacy such as the duration of response (DOR)

  2. Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: A maximum of 24 months ]
    To further evaluate efficacy such as progression free survival (PFS)

  3. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: A minimum of 5 years ]
    To further evaluate efficacy such as overall survival (OS)
