Decision based on FLAURA2 Phase III trial results which extended median progression-free survival by nearly 9 months versus standard of care.

AstraZeneca's supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for Tagrisso (osimertinib) in combination with chemotherapy has been accepted and granted Priority Review in the US for the treatment of adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic epidermal growth factor receptor-mutated (EGFRm) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) grants Priority Review to applications for medicines that, if approved, would offer significant improvements over available options by demonstrating safety or efficacy improvements, preventing serious conditions, or enhancing patient compliance.[1] The Prescription Drug User Fee Act date, the FDA action date for their regulatory decision, is anticipated during the first quarter of 2024.

Each year, there are an estimated 2.2 million people diagnosed with lung cancer globally with 80-85% of patients diagnosed with NSCLC, the most common form of lung cancer.[2-4] Approximately 70% of people are diagnosed with advanced NSCLC.[5] Additionally, about 10-15% of NSCLC patients in the US and Europe, and 30-40% of patients in Asia have EGFRm NSCLC.[6-8]

Susan Galbraith, Executive Vice President, Oncology R&D, AstraZeneca, said: "The FLAURA2 results reinforce Tagrisso as a backbone of standard of care in 1st-line EGFR-mutated non-small cell lung cancer, providing patients with an additional nine months of median progression-free survival when combined with chemotherapy. This option is particularly important for patients with a poorer prognosis such as those with brain metastases. We look forward to working with the FDA on an accelerated timeline to bring this treatment regimen to patients as quickly as possible."

The sNDA is based on data from the FLAURA2 Phase III trial presented (https://www.astrazeneca.com/media-centre/press-releases/2023/tagrisso-plus-chemotherapy-extended-median-progression-free-survival-by-nearly-9-months-in-egfr-mutated-advanced-lung-cancer-in-flaura2-phase-iii-trial.html) in a Presidential Symposium at the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) 2023 World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC).

In the trial, Tagrisso in combination with chemotherapy reduced the risk of disease progression or death by 38% compared to Tagrisso monotherapy, the 1st-line global standard of care (based on a hazard ratio [HR] of 0.62; 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.49-0.79; p<0.0001). By investigator assessment, the combination extended median PFS by 8.8 months versus Tagrisso alone. PFS results from blinded independent central review were consistent, showing Tagrisso plus chemotherapy extended median PFS by 9.5 months (based on HR of 0.62; 95% CI 0.48-0.80; p=0.0002).

Importantly, a clinically meaningful PFS benefit was observed across all prespecified subgroups, including patients with central nervous system metastases. In this group, the combination reduced the risk of disease progression or death by 53% compared to Tagrisso monotherapy (based on a HR of 0.47; 95% CI 0.33-0.66), extending median PFS by 11.1 months versus Tagrisso alone.

At the time of this analysis, the overall survival (OS) data were immature, however, a favourable trend was observed for Tagrisso plus chemotherapy. The trial continues to assess OS as a key secondary endpoint.

The safety profile of Tagrisso plus chemotherapy was generally manageable and consistent with the established profiles of the individual medicines. Adverse event rates were higher in the combination arm, driven by well-characterised chemotherapy-related adverse events. Additional safety information will be presented at a forthcoming medical meeting.

In August 2023, Tagrisso in combination with chemotherapy received Breakthrough Therapy Designation by the FDA in this setting for the 1st-line treatment of adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic EGFRm NSCLC.

Tagrisso is approved as monotherapy in more than 100 countries including in the US, EU, China and Japan. Approved indications include for 1st-line treatment of patients with locally advanced or metastatic EGFRm NSCLC, locally advanced or metastatic EGFR T790M mutation-positive NSCLC, and adjuvant treatment of early-stage (IB, II and IIIA) EGFRm NSCLC.

Notes

Lung cancer
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women, accounting for about one-fifth of all cancer deaths.[2 ]Lung cancer is broadly split into NSCLC and small cell lung cancer.[3] The majority of all NSCLC patients are diagnosed with advanced disease.[5]

Patients with EGFRm NSCLC are particularly sensitive to treatment with an EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (EGFR-TKI) which blocks the cell-signalling pathways that drive the growth of tumour cells.[9]

FLAURA2
FLAURA2 is a randomised, open-label, multi-centre, global Phase III trial in the 1st-line treatment of patients with locally advanced (Stage IIIB-IIIC) or metastatic (Stage IV) EGFRm NSCLC. Patients were treated with Tagrisso 80mg once daily oral tablets in combination with chemotherapy (pemetrexed (500mg/m2) plus cisplatin (75mg/m2) or carboplatin (AUC5) every three weeks for four cycles, followed by Tagrisso with pemetrexed maintenance every three weeks.

The trial enrolled 557 patients in more than 150 centres across more than 20 countries, including in the US, Europe, South America and Asia. The primary endpoint is PFS. The trial is ongoing and will continue to assess the secondary endpoint of OS.

Tagrisso
Tagrisso (osimertinib) is a third-generation, irreversible EGFR-TKI with proven clinical activity in NSCLC, including against CNS metastases. Tagrisso (40mg and 80mg once-daily oral tablets) has been used to treat nearly 700,000 patients across its indications worldwide and AstraZeneca continues to explore Tagrisso as a treatment for patients across multiple stages of EGFRm NSCLC.

There is an extensive body of evidence supporting the use of Tagrisso in EGFRm NSCLC. Tagrisso is the only targeted therapy to improve survival in both early-stage disease in the ADAURA Phase III trial  (https://www.astrazeneca.com/media-centre/press-releases/2023/tagrisso-demonstrated-strong-overall-survival-benefit-in-the-adaura-phase-iii-trial.html)and late-stage disease in the FLAURA Phase III trial (https://www.astrazeneca.com/media-centre/press-releases/2019/tagrisso-significantly-improves-overall-survival-in-the-phase-iii-flaura-trial-for-1st-line-egfr-mutated-non-small-cell-lung-cancer-09082019.html). 

AstraZeneca also has several ongoing Phase III trials focused on earlier stages of lung cancer, including a trial in the Stage IA2-IA3 adjuvant resectable setting (ADAURA2), in the neoadjuvant setting (NeoADAURA), and in the Stage III locally advanced unresectable setting (LAURA).

The Company is also researching ways to address tumour mechanisms of resistance through the SAVANNAH and ORCHARD Phase II trials, and the SAFFRON Phase III trial, which test Tagrisso plus savolitinib, an oral, potent and highly selective MET TKI, as well as other potential new medicines.

AstraZeneca in lung cancer
AstraZeneca is working to bring patients with lung cancer closer to cure through the detection and treatment of early-stage disease, while also pushing the boundaries of science to improve outcomes in the resistant and advanced settings. By defining new therapeutic targets and investigating innovative approaches, the Company aims to match medicines to the patients who can benefit most.

The Company's comprehensive portfolio includes leading lung cancer medicines and the next wave of innovations, including Tagrisso and Iressa (gefitinib); Imfinzi (durvalumab) and Imjudo (tremelimumab); Enhertu (trastuzumab deruxtecan) and datopotamab deruxtecan in collaboration with Daiichi Sankyo; Orpathys (savolitinib) in collaboration with HUTCHMED; as well as a pipeline of potential new medicines and combinations across diverse mechanisms of action.

AstraZeneca is a founding member of the Lung Ambition Alliance, a global coalition working to accelerate innovation and deliver meaningful improvements for people with lung cancer, including and beyond treatment.

AstraZeneca in oncology
AstraZeneca is leading a revolution in oncology with the ambition to provide cures for cancer in every form, following the science to understand cancer and all its complexities to discover, develop and deliver life-changing medicines to patients.

The Company's focus is on some of the most challenging cancers. It is through persistent innovation that AstraZeneca has built one of the most diverse portfolios and pipelines in the industry, with the potential to catalyse changes in the practice of medicine and transform the patient experience.

AstraZeneca has the vision to redefine cancer care and, one day, eliminate cancer as a cause of death.
