“The combination of the CD122-biased cytokine NKTR-214 and the PD-1 inhibitor nivolumab (Opdivo) demonstrated target lesion reductions of 72% for patients with advanced cancers, according to findings from the phase Ib PIVOT-02 trial presented at the 2017 SITC Annual Meeting.
“The dose escalation trial enrolled patients in the first- or second-line setting with advanced non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), renal cell carcinoma (RCC), and melanoma. The objective response rates (ORR) by RECIST criteria ranged from 46% to 75% across tumor types. Additionally, the combination was tolerable, with no discontinuations attributed to adverse events (AEs).”
