Brief Summary:
The goal of this study is to explore if, for locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer patients whose tumors have high levels of PD-L1 (a marker associated with benefits from immunotherapy), a combination of immunotherapy and a personalized 4-week radiotherapy course could be more effective than standard treatment, which is a combination of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non-small Cell Lung Cancer, NSCLC Drug: PembroRT Drug: ChemoRT Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a Phase II trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of sequential pembrolizumab (200 mg every three weeks) and accelerated, dose-painted radiotherapy for patients with locally advanced NSCLC with PD-L1 expression ≥ 50%. Patients with PD-L1 expression < 50% will also be enrolled and treated with standard concurrent chemoradiotherapy to serve as a non-randomized comparison group.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: PembroRT Cohort
Subjects with PD-L1 expression ≥ 50% Combination of pembrolizumab and dose-painted radiotherapy for locally advanced NSCLC patients with high (≥ 50%) PD-L1 expression.
Drug: PembroRT
Patients whose tumors are found to have high (≥ 50%) PD-L1 expression will automatically be placed in the PembroRT group. These patients will receive three intravenous treatments with pembrolizumab, followed by four weeks of daily radiotherapy, followed by up to 12 more treatments with pembrolizumab. Pembrolizumab is given as an intravenous infusion once every three weeks. This treatment course will last, in total, up to one year.

Active Comparator: ChemoRT Cohort
Subjects with PD-L1 expression < 50% Subjects with PD-L1 expression below 50% will be enrolled and treated with standard concurrent chemoradiotherapy.
Drug: ChemoRT
Patients whose tumors are found to have low (< 50%) PD-L1 expression will automatically be placed in the ChemoRT group. These patients will receive radiotherapy over a course of four to seven weeks. During radiotherapy, patients will also receive two standard chemotherapy agents (carboplatin and paclitaxel) once each week. Following completion of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, patients may receive additional treatments with chemotherapy or immunotherapy as part of routine care. These treatments are optional and are not required by this clinical trial.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-Free Survival [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    To characterize progression-free survival rates following treatment with sequential pembrolizumab and radiotherapy for locally advanced NSCLC with PD-L1 expression ≥ 50%.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Distant metastisis [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    To characterize freedom from distant metastasis rates following treatment with sequential pembrolizumab and radiotherapy for locally advanced NSCLC with PD-L1 expression ≥ 50%.

  2. Intrathoracic disease progression [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    To characterize freedom from intrathoracic disease progression rates following treatment with sequential pembrolizumab and radiotherapy for locally advanced NSCLC with PD-L1 expression ≥ 50%.

  3. Overall survival [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    To characterize overall survival rates following treatment with sequential pembrolizumab and radiotherapy for locally advanced NSCLC with PD-L1 expression ≥ 50%.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 99 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Participants are eligible to be included in the study only if all the following criteria apply:

  1. Male/female participants who are at least 18 years of age on the day of signing informed consent with histologically confirmed diagnosis of non-small cell lung cancer will be enrolled in this study.
  2. Previously untreated, pathologically proven NSCLC with measurable disease (at least 1 unidimensional, radiographically measurable lesion based on RECIST v1.1) and one of the following stages: (prior resection for early stage disease is allowed)

    1. AJCC version 8 Stage II disease, medically or technically unresectable
    2. AJCC version 8 Stage III disease
  3. Whole body PET/CT within 42 days prior to study entry demonstrating hypermetabolic pulmonary lesion(s) and/or thoracic lymph node(s). If PET/CT was obtained more than 42 days prior to study entry and is not repeated, CT within 28 days prior to study entry demonstrating no evidence of metastatic disease is required.
  4. MRI of the brain or head CT with contrast within 42 days prior to study entry.
  5. PFTs within 42 days of study entry
  6. ECOG performance status 0-1
  7. Adequate end-organ function, based on routine clinical and laboratory workup:

    1. ANC >1,500 cells/µl, Platelets ≥ 100,000 cells/µl, Hemoglobin ≥ 9.0 g/dl
    2. Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 x ULN or calculated creatinine clearance ≥ 50 ml/min
    3. Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x ULN (or direct bilirubin below the ULN), AST and ALT ≤ 2.5 x ULN
    4. International normalized ratio (INR) (or prothrombin time (PT)) and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) ≤ 1.5 x ULN unless participant is receiving anticoagulant therapy, as long as values are within the intended therapeutic range
    5. Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) within normal limits. If TSH is not within normal limits, the participant may be eligible if T3 and free T4 are within normal limits.
  8. A female participant is eligible to participate if she is not pregnant (see Exclusion Criteria), not breastfeeding, and at least one of the following conditions applies:
