  • Publication number: 20230295737
    Abstract: The disclosure provides a method for treating a subject afflicted with a tumor, e.g., lung cancer, having a high tumor mutation burden (TMB) status comprising administering to the subject an immunotherapy, e.g., an anti-PD-1 antibody or antigen-binding portion thereof. The present disclosure also provides a method for identifying a subject suitable for an immunotherapy, e.g., a treatment with an anti-PD-1 antibody or antigen-binding portion thereof, comprising measuring a TMB status of a biological sample of the subject. A high TMB status identifies the patient as suitable for treatment with an anti-PD-1 antibody or antigen-binding portion thereof. The TMB status can be determined by sequencing nucleic acids in the tumor and identifying a genomic alteration, e.g., a somatic nonsynonymous mutation, in the sequenced nucleic acids.

  • Publication number: 20230295302
    Abstract: The disclosure provides a method for treating a subject afflicted with a tumor derived from a small cell lung cancer (SCLC) having a high tumor mutational burden (TMB) status comprising administering to the subject a monotherapy comprising an anti-PD-1 antibody or a combination therapy comprising an anti-PD-1 antibody and an anti-CTLA-4 antibody. The present disclosure also provides a method for identifying a subject suitable for treatment with an anti-PD-1 antibody or a combination therapy comprising an anti-PD-1 antibody and an anti-CTLA-4 antibody comprising measuring a TMB status of a biological sample of the subject. A high TMB status identifies the patient as suitable for treatment with an anti-PD-1 antibody or antigen-binding portion thereof. The TMB status can be determined by sequencing nucleic acids in the tumor and identifying a genomic alteration, e.g., a somatic nonsynonymous mutation, in the sequenced nucleic acids.

  • Publication number: 20230279114
    Abstract: This disclosure provides a method for treating a subject afflicted with tumor, which method comprises administering to the subject an antibody or an antigen-binding portion thereof that specifically binds to a Programmed Death-1 (PD-1) receptor and inhibits PD-1 activity. In some embodiments, the tumor is derived from a non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In some embodiments, the tumor expresses Programmed Death Ligand 1. In some embodiments, the subject carries a wild-type STK11 gene.

  • Publication number: 20210032344
    Abstract: The disclosure provides a method for treating a subject afflicted with a tumor derived from a non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) comprising administering to the subject a therapeutically effective amount of (a) an anti-PD-1 antibody or antigen-binding portion thereof or an anti-PD-L1 antibody or antigen-binding portion thereof and (b) an anti-CTLA-4 antibody or an antigen binding portion thereof, wherein the tumor has a high tumor mutation burden (TMB) status. The TMB status can be determined by sequencing nucleic acids in the tumor and identifying a genomic alteration, e.g., a somatic nonsynonymous mutation, in the sequenced nucleic acids.
