AstraZeneca and Daiichi Sankyo's Enhertu showed objective response rates of 49% and 56% with 5.4mg/kg and 6.4mg/kg doses respectively in primary analysis. Enhertu provided a median progression-free survival of 9.9 months at 5.4mg/kg dose and 15.4 months at 6.4mg/kg dose with a median duration of response of 16.8 months seen at the 5.4 mg/kg dose and not reached at the 6.4 mg/kg dose. Favourable safety profile confirms 5.4mg/kg as optimal dose in this tumour type and reinforces role of Enhertu in this setting.
Results from the primary analysis of the DESTINY-Lung02 Phase II trial showed Enhertu (trastuzumab deruxtecan) continued to demonstrate strong and durable tumour responses in previously treated patients with HER2-mutant (HER2m) unresectable and/or metastatic non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
These results, along with the first report on progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS), were presented today at the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) 2023 World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC) (abstract #MA13.10) and simultaneously published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology (https://ascopubs.org/doi/full/10.1200/JCO.23.01361).
Enhertu is a specifically engineered HER2-directed antibody drug conjugate (ADC) being jointly developed and commercialised by AstraZeneca and Daiichi Sankyo.
At the primary analysis, a confirmed objective response rate (ORR) of 49.0% and 56.0% was seen in the 5.4mg/kg arm and 6.4mg/kg arm respectively, as assessed by blinded independent central review (BICR). The safety profile for both doses was consistent with the overall safety profile of Enhertu, with the 5.4mg/kg dose demonstrating a favourable safety profile in this patient population.
Secondary endpoint data were also encouraging, with Enhertu demonstrating a median PFS of 9.9 months and 15.4 months in the 5.4mg/kg and 6.4mg/kg arms respectively, as assessed by BICR. A median OS of 19.5 months was achieved in the 5.4mg/kg arm and not reached in the 6.4mg/kg arm at time of analysis.
Pasi A. Jänne, MD, PhD, Director, Lowe Center for Thoracic Oncology and Belfer Center for Applied Cancer Science, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, US, said: "The primary results from DESTINY-Lung02 demonstrate that Enhertu continues to show strong and durable tumour responses for patients treated at either dose. The favourable safety profile seen at the 5.4mg/kg dose continues to support the use of Enhertu in the treatment of patients with HER2-mutant non-small cell lung cancer, a particularly aggressive form of the disease where patients face a poor prognosis and have historically had few options."
Susan Galbraith, Executive Vice President, Oncology R&D, AstraZeneca, said: "These results from DESTINY-Lung02 highlight that HER2 is an actionable target in lung cancer and reinforce the importance of testing for predictive biomarkers, including HER2 alterations, at the time of diagnosis to accurately identify patients who may be able to benefit from a targeted treatment. The data also reaffirm our belief in Enhertu as a potential new targeted treatment option for patients who have historically had limited options."
Ken Takeshita, Global Head, R&D, Daiichi Sankyo, said: "The disease control achieved by more than 90% of patients with previously treated HER2-mutant non-small cell lung cancer in the primary analysis of DESTINY-Lung02 reinforces the efficacy we have already seen with Enhertu in this hard-to-treat disease. These results, along with encouraging progression-free survival and overall survival findings reported for the first time, demonstrate the potential role of Enhertu as an important treatment option for this patient population."

In DESTINY-Lung02, no new safety signals were observed at either dose of Enhertu. Grade 3 or higher treatment-related treatment emergent adverse events (TEAEs) were lower with Enhertu 5.4mg/kg versus 6.4mg/kg, occurring in 38.6% and 58.0% of all patients, respectively. The most common Grade 3 or higher TEAEs were neutropenia (18.8% (5.4mg/kg); 36.0% (6.4mg/kg)) and anaemia (10.9% (5.4mg/kg); 16.0% (6.4mg/kg)).
There were 27 cases (12.9% in the 5.4mg/kg arm and 28% in the 6.4mg/kg arm) of treatment-related interstitial lung disease (ILD) or pneumonitis reported as determined by an independent adjudication committee. In the 5.4mg/kg arm, the majority of ILD cases were low Grade (Grade 1 or 2) (10.9%) with one Grade 3 event (1.0%), no Grade 4 events and one Grade 5 event (1.0%) observed. In the 6.4mg/kg arm, the majority of ILD cases were also low Grade (26.0%) with no Grade 3 or 4 events and one Grade 5 event (2.0%) reported.
Lung cancer is the second most common form of cancer globally, with more than two million patients diagnosed in 2020. Prognosis is particularly poor for patients with metastatic NSCLC, as only approximately 9% will live beyond five years after diagnosis.
HER2 is a tyrosine kinase receptor growth-promoting protein expressed on the surface of many types of tumours, including lung, breast, gastric and colorectal cancers. Certain HER2 (ERBB2) gene alterations (called HER2 mutations) have been identified in patients with non-squamous NSCLC as a distinct molecular target, and occur in approximately 2-4% of patients with this type of lung cancer.[3,4] While HER2 gene mutations can occur in a range of patients, they are more commonly found in patients with NSCLC who are younger, female and have never smoked. HER2 gene mutations have been independently associated with cancer cell growth and poor prognosis, with an increased incidence of brain metastases. Next-generation sequencing has been utilised in the identification of HER2 (ERBB2) mutations.[7,8]
Although the role of anti-HER2 treatment is well established in breast and gastric cancers, there were no approved HER2-directed therapies in NSCLC prior to the approvals of Enhertu by the Israel Ministry of Health (MOH) Pharmaceutical Division, the Japan Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare and the accelerated US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of Enhertu in unresectable or metastatic HER2 mutant NSCLC.
DESTINY-Lung02 is a global, randomised Phase II trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of Enhertu in patients with HER2m unresectable and/or metastatic NSCLC with disease recurrence or progression during or after at least one regimen of prior anticancer therapy that must have contained a platinum-based chemotherapy. Patients were randomised 2:1 to receive Enhertu 5.4mg/kg (n=102) or Enhertu 6.4mg/kg (n=50).
The primary endpoint of the trial is confirmed ORR as assessed by BICR. Secondary endpoints include confirmed DCR, DoR and PFS assessed by investigator and BICR, OS and safety.
DESTINY-Lung02 enrolled 152 patients at multiple sites, including Asia, Europe and North America. For more information about the trial, visit ClinicalTrials.gov (https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04644237).
Enhertu is a HER2-directed ADC. Designed using Daiichi Sankyo's proprietary DXd ADC technology, Enhertu is the lead ADC in the oncology portfolio of Daiichi Sankyo and the most advanced programme in AstraZeneca's ADC scientific platform. Enhertu consists of a HER2 monoclonal antibody attached to a topoisomerase I inhibitor payload, an exatecan derivative, via a stable tetrapeptide-based cleavable linker.
Enhertu (5.4mg/kg) is approved in more than 50 countries for the treatment of adult patients with unresectable or metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer who have received a (or one or more) prior anti-HER2-based regimen either in the metastatic setting, or in the neoadjuvant or adjuvant setting and have developed disease recurrence during or within six months of completing therapy based on the results from the DESTINY-Breast03 trial.
Enhertu (5.4mg/kg) is approved in more than 40 countries worldwide for the treatment of adult patients with unresectable or metastatic HER2-low (IHC 1+ or IHC 2+/ISH-) breast cancer who have received a prior systemic therapy in the metastatic setting or developed disease recurrence during or within six months of completing adjuvant chemotherapy based on the results from the DESTINY-Breast04 (https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT03734029) trial.
Enhertu (5.4mg/kg) is approved in Israel, Japan and under accelerated approval in the US for the treatment of adult patients with unresectable or metastatic NSCLC whose tumours have activating HER2 (ERBB2) mutations, as detected by a locally or regionally approved test, and who have received a prior systemic therapy based on the results from the DESTINY-Lung02 trial. Continued approval for this indication in the US may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in a confirmatory trial.
Enhertu (6.4mg/kg) is approved in more than 30 countries for the treatment of adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic HER2-positive gastric or gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) adenocarcinoma who have received a prior trastuzumab-based regimen based on the results from the DESTINY-Gastric01 and/or DESTINY-Gastric02 trials.
Enhertu development programme
A comprehensive clinical development programme is underway globally, evaluating the efficacy and safety of Enhertu monotherapy across multiple HER2-targetable cancers. Trials in combination with other anticancer treatments, such as immunotherapy, are also underway.
