Brief Summary:
This phase II trial studies the effects of temozolomide and atezolizumab as second line treatment for patients with small cell lung cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic) or has come back (recurrent). Chemotherapy drugs, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving temozolomide and atezolizumab as second line treatment may help prolong survival in patients with small cell lung cancer.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

I. To estimate the efficacy of atezolizumab and temozolomide in two dosing schedules for patients with metastatic small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) who progress after first line chemoimmunotherapy.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the safety profile and toxicity of combination atezolizumab and temozolomide in two dosing schedules as per Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version (v) 5.0.

II. To evaluate the progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) of patients treated with combination atezolizumab and temozolomide.

III. To evaluate the intracranial PFS rate at 6 months (icPFS6) of patients with SCLC treated with atezolizumab and temozolomide.

CORRELATIVE/EXPLORATORY OBJECTIVES:

I. Explore association of myeloid-derived suppressor cell (MDSC) levels at baseline biomarker status from tumor biopsy samples and peripheral blood and correlate these with clinical parameters (including overall response rate [ORR], OS and toxicity).

II. To evaluate changes in MDSC induced by different dosing of temozolomide. III. To explore post-translational modifications of PD-L1 by mass spectrometry.

OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 cohorts.

COHORT I: Patients receive atezolizumab intravenously (IV) over 30-60 minutes on day 1 and temozolomide orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-5. Cycles repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

COHORT II: Patients receive atezolizumab IV over 30-60 minutes on day 1. Patients also receive temozolomide PO QD on days 1-14 of cycle 1 and days 1-21 of subsequent cycles. Cycles repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 30 days and every 3 months thereafter.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Investigator-assessed objective response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    Assessed by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1. Response will be defined by a confirmed complete response (CR) or confirmed partial response (PR). Response will be defined for patients with measurable disease and who receive at least one dose of combination treatment. ORR rate will be calculated as the proportion of patients with RECIST-based PR or CR divided by the total number of evaluable patients. Exact binomial 90% and 95% confidence intervals for the true PR+CR response rate will be calculated.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Treatment related adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    Defined by the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 5.

  2. Progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: From initiation of investigational therapy until the criteria for disease progression is met as defined by RECIST1.1 or death as a result of any cause, assessed up to 2 years ]
    Will be estimated with Kaplan-Meier method. Median with 95% confidence interval will be calculated.

  3. Intracranial PFS [ Time Frame: At 6 months from start of investigational therapy ]
    Defined as the percentage of patients without intracranial disease progression (including patients with and without intracranial disease at baseline), including development of new lesions, development of symptomatic lesions or leptomeningeal disease, or intervention required for disease control (such as radiation or surgery). Will be estimated with Kaplan-Meier method. Median with 95% confidence interval will be calculated.

  4. Overall survival [ Time Frame: Date of initiation of investigational therapy to date of death from any cause, assessed up to 2 years ]
    Will be estimated with Kaplan-Meier method. Median with 95% confidence interval will be calculated.
