  • 4 CONTRAINDICATIONS

    None. (4)

  • 5 WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

    5.1 Severe and Fatal Immune-Mediated Adverse Reactions

    IMJUDO is a monoclonal antibody that blocks T-cell inhibitory signals induced by the CTLA-4 pathway, thereby removing inhibition of the immune response. In combination with durvalumab, a PD-L1 inhibitor, these drugs have the potential for induction of immune-mediated adverse reactions. Immune-mediated adverse reactions listed herein may not be inclusive of all possible severe and fatal immune-mediated reactions.

    Immune-mediated adverse reactions, which may be severe or fatal, can occur in any organ system or tissue. Immune-mediated adverse reactions can occur at any time after starting IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab. While immune-mediated adverse reactions usually manifest during treatment, immune-mediated adverse reactions can also manifest after discontinuation of IMJUDO and/or durvalumab.

    Early identification and management of immune-mediated adverse reactions are essential to ensure safe use of IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab. Monitor for signs and symptoms that may be clinical manifestations of underlying immune-mediated adverse reactions. Evaluate clinical chemistries including liver enzymes, creatinine, adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) level, and thyroid function at baseline and before each dose. Institute medical management promptly, including specialty consultation as appropriate.

    Withhold or permanently discontinue IMJUDO and durvalumab depending on severity [see Dosage and Administration (2.2)]. In general, if combination of IMJUDO and durvalumab requires interruption or discontinuation, administer systemic corticosteroid therapy (1 to 2 mg/kg/day prednisone or equivalent) until improvement to Grade 1 or less. Upon improvement to Grade 1 or less, initiate corticosteroid taper and continue to taper over at least 1 month. Consider administration of other systemic immunosuppressants in patients whose immune-mediated adverse reactions are not controlled with corticosteroid therapy.

    Toxicity management guidelines for adverse reactions that do not necessarily require systemic steroids (e.g., endocrinopathies and dermatologic reactions) are discussed below.

    Immune-Mediated Pneumonitis

    IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab can cause immune-mediated pneumonitis, which may be fatal.

    IMJUDO with Durvalumab

    Immune-mediated pneumonitis occurred in 1.3% (5/388) of patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab, including fatal (0.3%) and Grade 3 (0.2%) adverse reactions. Events resolved in 3 of the 5 patients and resulted in permanent discontinuation in 1 patient. Systemic corticosteroids were required in all patients; of these, 4 patients required high dose corticosteroid treatment (at least 40 mg prednisone or equivalent per day). One patient (1/5) required other immunosuppressants.

    IMJUDO with Durvalumab and Platinum-Based Chemotherapy

    Immune-mediated pneumonitis occurred in 3.5% (21/596) of patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy, including fatal (0.5%) and Grade 3 (1%) adverse reactions. Events resolved in 11 of the 21 patients and resulted in permanent discontinuation in 7 patients. Systemic corticosteroids were required in all patients with immune-mediated pneumonitis, while 1 patient (1/21) required other immunosuppressants.

    Immune-Mediated Colitis

    IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab can cause immune-mediated colitis that is frequently associated with diarrhea. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection/reactivation has been reported in patients with corticosteroid-refractory immune-mediated colitis. In cases of corticosteroid-refractory colitis, consider repeating infectious workup to exclude alternative etiologies.

    IMJUDO with Durvalumab

    Immune-mediated colitis or diarrhea occurred in 6% (23/388) of patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab, including Grade 3 (3.6%) adverse reactions. Events resolved in 22 of the 23 patients and resulted in permanent discontinuation in 5 patients. All patients received systemic corticosteroids, and 20 of the 23 patients received high-dose corticosteroid treatment (at least 40 mg prednisone or equivalent per day). Three patients also received other immunosuppressants.

    Intestinal perforation has been observed in other studies of IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab.

    Immune-Mediated Hepatitis

    IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab can cause immune-mediated hepatitis, which may be fatal.

    IMJUDO with Durvalumab

Events resolved in 12 of the 29 patients and resulted in permanent discontinuation in 9 patients. Systemic corticosteroids were required in all 29 patients and all 29 patients required high dose corticosteroid treatment (at least 40 mg prednisone or equivalent per day). Eight patients (8/29) required other immunosuppressants.

    IMJUDO with Durvalumab and Platinum-Based Chemotherapy

    Immune-mediated hepatitis occurred in 3.9% (23/596) of patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy, including fatal (0.3%), Grade 4 (0.5%), and Grade 3 (2%) adverse reactions. Events resolved in 12 of the 23 patients and resulted in permanent discontinuation in 27 patients. Systemic corticosteroids were required in all patients with immune-mediated hepatitis, while 2 patients (2/23) required use of other immunosuppressants.

    Immune-Mediated Endocrinopathies

    Adrenal Insufficiency: IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab can cause primary or secondary adrenal insufficiency. For Grade 2 or higher adrenal insufficiency, initiate symptomatic treatment, including hormone replacement as clinically indicated. Withhold or permanently discontinue IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab based on the severity [see Dosage and Administration (2.2)].

    IMJUDO with Durvalumab

    Immune-mediated adrenal insufficiency occurred in 1.5% (6/388) of patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab, including Grade 3 (0.3%) adverse reactions. Events resolved in 2 of the 6 patients. Systemic corticosteroids were required in all 6 patients and of these, 1 patient required high-dose corticosteroid treatment (at least 40 mg prednisone or equivalent per day).

    Immune-mediated nephritis occurred in 1% (4/388) of patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab, including Grade 3 (0.5%) adverse reactions. Events resolved in 3 of the 4 patients and resulted in permanent discontinuation in 2 patients. Systemic corticosteroids were required in all patients with immune-mediated nephritis; of these, 3 patients required high-dose corticosteroid treatment (at least 40 mg prednisone or equivalent per day).

    IMJUDO with Durvalumab and Platinum-Based Chemotherapy

    Immune-mediated nephritis occurred in 0.7% (4/596) of patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy, including Grade 3 (0.2%) adverse reactions. Events resolved in 1 of the 4 patients and resulted in permanent discontinuation in 3 patients. Systemic corticosteroids were required in all patients with immune-mediated nephritis.

    Immune-Mediated Dermatology Reactions

    IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab can cause immune-mediated rash or dermatitis. Exfoliative dermatitis, including Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS), drug rash with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS), and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), has occurred with CTLA-4 and PD-1/L-1 blocking antibodies. Topical emollients and/or topical corticosteroids may be adequate to treat mild to moderate non-exfoliative rashes. Withhold or permanently discontinue IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab depending on severity [see Dosage and Administration (2.2)].

    IMJUDO with Durvalumab

    Immune-mediated rash or dermatitis occurred in 4.9% (19/388) of patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab, including Grade 4 (0.3%) and Grade 3 (1.5%) adverse reactions. Events resolved in 13 of the 19 patients and resulted in permanent discontinuation in 2 patients. Systemic corticosteroids were required in all patients with immune-mediated rash or dermatitis; of these, 12 patients required high-dose corticosteroid treatment (at least 40 mg prednisone or equivalent per day). One patient received other immunosuppressants.

    IMJUDO with Durvalumab and Platinum-Based Chemotherapy

    Immune-mediated rash or dermatitis occurred in 7.2% (43/596) of patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy, including Grade 3 (0.3%) adverse reactions. Events resolved in 32 of the 43 patients and resulted in permanent discontinuation in 2 patients. Systemic corticosteroids were required in all patients with immune-mediated rash or dermatitis.

    Immune-Mediated Pancreatitis

    IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab can cause immune-mediated pancreatitis.

    IMJUDO with Durvalumab

    Immune-mediated pancreatitis occurred in 2.3% (9/388) of patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab, including Grade 4 (0.3%) and Grade 3 (1.5%) adverse reactions. Events resolved in 6 of the 9 patients. Systemic corticosteroids were required in all 9 patients and of these, 7 patients required high-dose corticosteroid treatment (at least 40 mg prednisone or equivalent per day).

    Other Immune-Mediated Adverse Reactions

    The following clinically significant, immune-mediated adverse reactions occurred at an incidence of less than 1% each in patients who received IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab or were reported with the use of other immune-checkpoint inhibitors.

    Cardiac/vascular: Myocarditis, pericarditis, vasculitis.

    Nervous system: Meningitis, encephalitis, myelitis and demyelination, myasthenic syndrome/myasthenia gravis (including exacerbation), Guillain-Barré syndrome, nerve paresis, autoimmune neuropathy.

    Ocular: Uveitis, iritis, and other ocular inflammatory toxicities can occur. Some cases can be associated with retinal detachment. Various grades of visual impairment to include blindness can occur. If uveitis occurs in combination with other immune-mediated adverse reactions, consider a Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada-like syndrome, as this may require treatment with systemic steroids to reduce the risk of permanent vision loss.

    Gastrointestinal: Gastritis, duodenitis.

    Musculoskeletal and connective tissue disorders: Myositis/polymyositis, rhabdomyolysis and associated sequelae including renal failure, arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica.

    Endocrine: Hypoparathyroidism.

    Other (hematologic/immune): Hemolytic anemia, aplastic anemia, hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, systemic inflammatory response syndrome, histiocytic necrotizing lymphadenitis (Kikuchi lymphadenitis), sarcoidosis, and immune thrombocytopenia.

    5.2 Infusion-Related Reactions

    IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab can cause severe or life-threatening infusion-related reactions.

    Monitor for signs and symptoms of infusion-related reactions. Interrupt, slow the rate of, or permanently discontinue IMJUDO and durvalumab based on the severity [see Dosage and Administration (2.2)]. For Grade 1 or 2 infusion-related reactions, consider using pre-medications with subsequent doses.

    IMJUDO with Durvalumab

    Infusion-related reactions occurred in 10 (2.6%) patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab.

    IMJUDO with Durvalumab and Platinum-Based Chemotherapy

    Infusion-related reactions occurred in 2.9% (17/596) of patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy, including Grade 3 (0.3%) adverse reactions.

    5.3 Embryo-Fetal Toxicity

    Based on findings from animal studies and its mechanism of action, IMJUDO can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. In animal studies, CTLA-4 blockade is associated with higher incidence of pregnancy loss.

    Advise pregnant women and females of reproductive potential of the potential risk to a fetus. Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with IMJUDO and for 3 months after the last dose of IMJUDO [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1, 8.3)].

  • 6 ADVERSE REACTIONS

    The following adverse reactions are discussed in greater detail in other sections of the labeling.

    Immune-Mediated Adverse Reactions [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].
    Infusion-Related Reactions [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2)].

    6.1 Clinical Trials Experience

    Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.

    The data described in the Warnings and Precautions reflect exposure to IMJUDO 300 mg in combination with durvalumab 1,500 mg in 388 patients in HIMALAYA. In the HIMALAYA study patients received IMJUDO 300 mg administered as a single intravenous infusion in combination with durvalumab 1,500 mg on the same day, followed by durvalumab every 4 weeks.

    The data also reflects exposure to IMJUDO 75 mg in combination with durvalumab 1,500 mg and histology-based platinum chemotherapy regimens in the pooled safety population (N=596) of 330 patients in POSEIDON [see Clinical Studies (14.1)], and 266 patients in CASPIAN who received up to four cycles of platinum-etoposide plus durvalumab 1,500 mg with tremelimumab-actl 75 mg every 3 weeks, followed by durvalumab 1,500 mg every 4 weeks (an unapproved regimen for extensive-stage small cell lung cancer). Of these patients, 64% received the maximum of 5 doses of IMJUDO and 79% received at least 4 doses.

    In this pooled safety population, the most common (> 20%) adverse reactions were nausea (37%), decreased appetite (25%), and fatigue (22%). In this pooled safety population, the most common Grade 3 or 4 (> 10%) laboratory abnormalities were neutropenia (39%), leukopenia (21%), lymphocytopenia (20%), anemia (20%), hyponatremia (14%), lipase increased (12%), and thrombocytopenia (11%).

    The data described in this section reflect exposure to IMJUDO in patients with uHCC included in the HIMALAYA study and in patients with metastatic NSCLC enrolled in the POSEIDON study.

    Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    Unresectable HCC - HIMALAYA

    The safety of IMJUDO administered in combination with durvalumab was evaluated in a total of 388 patients with uHCC in HIMALAYA, a randomized, open-label, multicenter study [see Clinical Studies (14.1)]. Patients received IMJUDO 300 mg administered as a single intravenous infusion in combination with durvalumab 1,500 mg on the same day, followed by durvalumab every 4 weeks or sorafenib 400 mg given orally twice daily.

    Serious adverse reactions occurred in 41% of patients who received IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab. Serious adverse reactions in > 1% of patients included hemorrhage (6%), diarrhea (4%), sepsis (2.1%), pneumonia (2.1%), rash (1.5%), vomiting (1.3%), acute kidney injury (1.3%), and anemia (1.3%). Fatal adverse reactions occurred in 8% of patients who received IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab, including death (1%), hemorrhage intracranial (0.5%), cardiac arrest (0.5%), pneumonitis (0.5%), hepatic failure (0.5%), and immune-mediated hepatitis (0.5%). The most common adverse reactions (occurring in ≥ 20% of patients) were rash, diarrhea, fatigue, pruritus, musculoskeletal pain, and abdominal pain.

    Permanent discontinuation of the treatment regimen due to an adverse reaction occurred in 14% of patients; the most common adverse reactions leading to treatment discontinuation (≥ 1%) were hemorrhage (1.8%), diarrhea (1.5%), AST increased (1%), and hepatitis (1%).

    Dosage interruptions or delay of the treatment regimen due to an adverse reaction occurred in 35% of patients. Adverse reactions which required dosage interruption or delay in ≥ 1% of patients included ALT increased (3.6%), diarrhea (3.6%), rash (3.6%), amylase increased (3.4%), AST increased (3.1%), lipase increased (2.8%), pneumonia (1.5%), hepatitis (1.5%), pyrexia (1.5%), anemia (1.3%), thrombocytopenia (1%), hyperthyroidism (1%), pneumonitis (1%), and blood creatinine increased (1%).

    Metastatic NSCLC – POSEIDON

    The safety of IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy in patients with metastatic NSCLC was evaluated in POSEIDON (NCT03164616), a randomized, open-label, multicenter, active-controlled trial. A total of 330 patients received IMJUDO (≥ 30 kg body weight received 75 mg and ≤ 30kg body weight received 1mg/kg) in combination with durvalumab 1,500 mg and histology-based platinum chemotherapy regimens [see Clinical Studies (14.2)]. Of these patients, 66% received up to the maximum 5 doses of IMJUDO and 79% received at least 4 doses. Treatment was continued with durvalumab as a single agent (or with durvalumab and histology-based pemetrexed for non-squamous patients, based on the investigator’s decision) until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. The trial excluded patients with active or prior autoimmune disease or with medical conditions that required systemic corticosteroids or immunosuppressants [see Clinical Studies (14.2)].

    The median age of patients who received IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy was 63 years (range: 27 to 87); 80% male; 61% White, 29% Asian, 58% former smoker, 25% current smoker, and 68% ECOG performance of 1.

    Serious adverse reactions occurred in 44% of patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy. The most frequent serious adverse reactions reported in at least 2% of patients were pneumonia (11%), anemia (5%), diarrhea (2.4%), thrombocytopenia (2.4%), pyrexia (2.4%), and febrile neutropenia (2.1%). Fatal adverse reactions occurred in a total of 4.2% of patients receiving IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy. These include hepatitis, nephritis, myocarditis, pancreatitis (all in the same patient), death (2 patients), sepsis (2 patients), pneumonitis (2 patients), acute kidney injury (2 patients), febrile neutropenia (1 patient), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (1 patient), dyspnea (1 patient), sudden death (1 patient), and ischemic stroke (1 patient).

    Permanent discontinuation of IMJUDO or durvalumab due to an adverse reaction occurred in 17% of the patients. Adverse reactions which resulted in permanent discontinuation of IMJUDO or durvalumab in > 2% of patients included pneumonia.

    Dosage interruptions or delay of IMJUDO and durvalumab due to an adverse reaction occurred in 41% of patients. Adverse reactions which required dosage interruption or delay of IMJUDO and durvalumab in > 1% of patients included anemia, leukopenia/white blood cell count decreased, pneumonia, pneumonitis, colitis, diarrhea, hepatitis, rash, asthenia, amylase increased, alanine aminotransferase increased, aspartate aminotransferase increased, lipase increased, neutropenia/neutrophil count decreased, and thrombocytopenia/platelet count decreased.

    The most common adverse reactions (occurring in ≥ 20% of patients) were nausea, fatigue, musculoskeletal pain, decreased appetite, rash, and diarrhea. Grade 3 or 4 laboratory abnormalities (≥ 10%) were neutropenia, anemia, leukopenia, lymphocytopenia, lipase increased, hyponatremia and thrombocytopenia.

  • 8 USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

    8.1 Pregnancy

    Risk summary

    Based on findings from animal studies and its mechanism of action, IMJUDO can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)]. There are no available data on the use of IMJUDO in pregnant women. In animal studies, CTLA-4 blockade is associated with increased risk of immune-mediated rejection of the developing fetus and fetal death (see Data).

    Human immunoglobulin G2 (IgG2) is known to cross the placental barrier; therefore, IMJUDO has the potential to be transmitted from the mother to the developing fetus. Advise pregnant women and females of reproductive potential of the potential risk to a fetus.

    In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies is 2% to 4% and 15% to 20%, respectively.

    Data

    Animal Data

    In a reproduction study, administration of tremelimumab-actl to pregnant cynomolgus monkeys during the period of organogenesis was not associated with maternal toxicity or effects on embryo-fetal development at exposure levels approximately 4 to 31-times higher than those observed at a recommended dose range of 75 mg to 300 mg based on area under the curve (AUC). CTLA-4 plays a role in maintaining maternal immune tolerance to the fetus to preserve pregnancy and in immune regulation of the newborn. In a murine model of pregnancy, CTLA-4 blockade resulted in increased resorptions and reduced live fetuses. Mated genetically engineered mice heterozygous for CTLA-4 (CTLA-4+/-) gave birth to CTLA-4+/- offspring and offspring deficient in CTLA-4 (homozygous negative, CTLA-4-/-) that appeared healthy at birth. The CTLA-4-/- homozygous negative offspring developed signs of a lymphoproliferative disorder and died by 3 to 4 weeks of age with multiorgan tissue destruction. Based on its mechanism of action, fetal exposure to tremelimumab-actl may increase the risk of developing immune-mediated disorders or altering the normal immune response.

    8.2 Lactation

    Risk Summary

    There are no data on the presence of tremelimumab-actl in human milk, its effects on a breastfed child, or on milk production. Maternal IgG is known to be present in human milk. The effects of local gastrointestinal exposure and limited systemic exposure in the breastfed child to IMJUDO are unknown. Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in the breastfed child, advise women not to breastfeed during treatment with IMJUDO and for 3 months after the last dose. Refer to the Prescribing Information for agents administered in combination with IMJUDO for breastfeeding recommendations, as appropriate.

    8.3 Females and Males of Reproductive Potential

    IMJUDO can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1)].

    Pregnancy Testing

    Verify pregnancy status of females of reproductive potential prior to initiating treatment with IMJUDO.

    Contraception

    Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with IMJUDO and for 3 months after the last dose. Refer to the Prescribing Information for the agents administered in combination with IMJUDO for recommended contraception duration, as appropriate.

    8.4 Pediatric Use

    The safety and effectiveness of tremelimumab-actl have not been established in pediatric patients.

    8.5 Geriatric Use

    Of the 393 patients with uHCC treated with IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab, 50% of patients were 65 years or older and 13% of patients were 75 years or older. No overall differences in safety or efficacy of IMJUDO have been observed between patients 65 years or older and younger adult patients.

    Of the 330 patients with metastatic NSCLC treated with IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy, 143 (43%) patients were 65 years or older and 35 (11%) patients were 75 years or older. No overall differences in safety or effectiveness were observed between these subjects and younger subjects.

  • 11 DESCRIPTION

    Tremelimumab-actl, a cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 (CTLA-4) blocking human IgG2 monoclonal antibody, is produced by recombinant DNA technology in NS0 cell suspension culture and has a molecular weight of 149 kDa.

    IMJUDO (tremelimumab-actl) injection is a sterile, preservative-free, clear to slightly opalescent, colorless to slightly yellow solution, in a single-dose vial for intravenous infusion after dilution. IMJUDO contains tremelimumab-actl at a concentration of 20 mg/mL in either a 25 mg/1.25 mL or a 300 mg/15 mL single-dose vial.

    Each mL contains 20 mg of tremelimumab-actl, and edetate disodium (0.09 mg), histidine (0.68 mg), L histidine hydrochloride monohydrate (3.3 mg), polysorbate 80 (0.2 mg), trehalose (76 mg), and Water for Injection, USP. The pH is approximately 5.5.

  • 12 CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

    12.1 Mechanism of Action

    CTLA-4 is a negative regulator of T-cell activity. Tremelimumab--actl is a monoclonal antibody that binds to CTLA-4 and blocks the interaction with its ligands CD80 and CD86, releasing CTLA-4-mediated inhibition of T-cell activation. In synergistic mouse tumor models, blocking CTLA-4 activity resulted in decreased tumor growth and increased proliferation of T cells in tumors.

    12.2 Pharmacodynamics

    The exposure-response relationship and time course of pharmacodynamic response for the safety and effectiveness of tremelimumab-actl have not been fully characterized.

    12.3 Pharmacokinetics

    The pharmacokinetics of tremelimumab-actl was studied in patients with other solid tumors following administration of doses 1 mg/kg, 3 mg/kg, and 10 mg/kg (1- to 10-times the approved recommended dosage) administered once every 4 weeks for 4 doses. The pharmacokinetics of tremelimumab-actl as a single dose of 300 mg were evaluated in patients with HCC.

    The AUC of tremelimumab-actl increased proportionally from 1 mg/kg to 10 mg/kg every 4 weeks (1 to 10-times the approved recommended dosage) and steady state was achieved at approximately 12 weeks.

    Distribution

    The geometric mean (% coefficient of variation [CV%]) of tremelimumab-actl for central (V1) and peripheral (V2) volume of distribution was 3.45 (24%) and 2.66 (34%) L, respectively.

    Elimination

    The geometric mean (CV%) terminal half-life of tremelimumab-actl was 16.9 days (19%) after a single dose and 18.2 days (19%) during steady state. The geometric mean (CV%) clearance of tremelimumab-actl was 0.286 L/day (32%) after a single dose and 0.263 L/day (32%) during steady state.

    Specific Populations

    There were no clinically significant differences in the pharmacokinetics of tremelimumab-actl based on body weight (34 to149 kg), age (18 to 87 years), sex, race (White, Black, Asian, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, or American Indian), serum albumin levels (0.3 to 396 g/L), lactate dehydrogenase levels (12 to 5570 U/L), soluble PD-L1 (67 to 349 pg/mL), tumor type (NSCLC, HCC), organ dysfunction including mild to moderate renal impairment (CLcr 30 to 89 mL/min), and mild to moderate hepatic impairment (bilirubin < 3 x ULN and any AST).

    The effect of severe renal impairment (CLcr 15 to 29 mL/min) or severe hepatic impairment (bilirubin > 3 x ULN and any AST) on the pharmacokinetics of tremelimumab-actl is unknown.

    12.6 Immunogenicity

    The observed incidence of anti-drug antibodies (ADA) is highly dependent on the sensitivity and specificity of the assay. Differences in assay methods preclude meaningful comparisons of the incidence of ADA in the studies described below with the incidence of ADA in other studies, including those of tremelimumab-actl.

    In the HIMALAYA study, of the 182 patients who were treated with a single dose of tremelimumab-actl in combination with durvalumab once in every 4 weeks therapy and evaluable for the presence of ADAs against tremelimumab-actl at predose week 0 and week 4, 11% (20/182) of patients tested positive for anti-tremelimumab-actl antibodies. Among the 20 patients who tested positive for ADAs 40% (8/20) tested positive for neutralizing antibodies against tremelimumab-actl. There was no identified clinically significant effect of anti-tremelimumab antibodies on the pharmacokinetics or safety of tremelimumab-actl; however, the effect of ADAs and neutralizing antibodies on the effectiveness of tremelimumab-actl is unknown.

    In the POSEIDON study, of the 278 ADA-evaluable patients who were treated with IMJUDO 75 mg for up to five doses in combination with durvalumab 1,500 mg and platinum-based chemotherapy every 3 weeks and evaluated for presence of ADAs against tremelimumab-actl at pre-dose week 0, week 3, and week 12, 14% (38/278) of patients tested positive for anti-tremelimumab-actl antibodies. Among the 38 patients who tested positive for ADAs, 82% (31/38) tested positive for neutralizing antibodies against tremelimumab-actl. There was no identified clinically significant effect of anti-tremelimumab-actl antibodies on pharmacokinetics or safety of tremelimumab-actl, however, the effect of ADAs on effectiveness of tremelimumab-actl is unknown.

  • 14 CLINICAL STUDIES

    14.1 Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC)

    The efficacy of IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab was evaluated in the HIMALAYA study (NCT03298451), a randomized (1:1:1), open-label, multicenter study in patients with confirmed uHCC who had not received prior systemic treatment for HCC. Patients were randomized to one of two investigational arms (IMJUDO plus durvalumab or durvalumab) or sorafenib. Study treatment consisted of IMJUDO as a one-time single intravenous infusion of 300 mg in combination with durvalumab 1,500 mg on the same day, followed by durvalumab every 4 weeks; durvalumab 1,500 mg every 4 weeks; or sorafenib 400 mg given orally twice daily, until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. The efficacy assessment of IMJUDO is based on patients randomized to the IMJUDO plus durvalumab arm versus the sorafenib arm. Randomization was stratified by macrovascular invasion (MVI) (yes or no), etiology of liver disease (hepatitis B virus vs. hepatitis C virus vs. others) and ECOG performance status (0 vs. 1).

    The study enrolled patients with BCLC Stage C or B (not eligible for locoregional therapy). The study excluded patients with co-infection of viral hepatitis B and hepatitis C; active or prior documented gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding within 12 months; ascites requiring non-pharmacologic intervention within 6 months; hepatic encephalopathy within 12 months before the start of treatment; active or prior documented autoimmune or inflammatory disorders. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy was not mandated prior to enrollment but adequate endoscopic therapy, according to institutional standards, was required for patients with a history of esophageal variceal bleeding or those assessed as high risk for esophageal variceal bleeding by the treating physician.

    Study treatment was permitted beyond disease progression if the patient was clinically stable and was deriving clinical benefit as determined by the investigator.

    The major efficacy outcome measure was overall survival (OS) between the IMJUDO plus durvalumab arm versus the sorafenib arm. Additional efficacy outcomes were investigator-assessed progression-free survival (PFS), objective response rate (ORR) and duration of response (DoR) according to RECIST v1.1. Tumor assessments were conducted every 8 weeks for the first 12 months and then every 12 weeks thereafter.

    The baseline demographics of the IMJUDO plus durvalumab and sorafenib arms were as follows: male (85%), age < 65 years (50%), median age of 65 years (range: 18 to 88 years), White (46%), Asian (49%), Black or African American (2%), Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander (0.1%), race Unknown (2%), Hispanic or Latino (5%), Not Hispanic or Latino (94%), ethnicity Unknown (1%), ECOG PS 0 (62%); Child-Pugh Class score A (99%), macrovascular invasion (26%), extrahepatic spread (53%), viral etiology hepatitis B (31%), hepatitis C (27%), uninfected (42%).

    Generic Section

    Metastic NSCLC – POSEIDON

    The efficacy of IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy in previously untreated metastatic NSCLC patients with no sensitizing epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation or anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) genomic tumor aberrations was investigated in POSEIDON, a randomized, multicenter, active-controlled, open-label trial (NCT03164616). Eligible patients had Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of 0 or 1 and must have had no prior chemotherapy or any other systemic therapy for metastatic NSCLC. Choice of platinum-based chemotherapy was at the Investigator’s discretion, taking into consideration the calculated creatinine clearance. Patients with active and/or untreated brain metastases; a history of active primary immunodeficiency; autoimmune disorders including active or prior documented autoimmune or inflammatory disorders; use of systemic immunosuppressants within 14 days before the first dose of the treatment except physiological dose of systemic corticosteroids were ineligible.

    Randomization was stratified by tumor cells (TC) PD-L1 expression (TC ≥ 50% vs. TC < 50%), disease stage (Stage IVA vs. Stage IVB), and histology (non-squamous vs. squamous).

    Patients were randomized 1:1:1 to receive IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy according to the regimens listed below, durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy (an unapproved regimen for metastatic NSCLC), or platinum-based chemotherapy. The evaluation of efficacy for metastatic NSCLC relied on comparison between:

    IMJUDO 75 mg (or 1mg/kg for patients < 30kg) with durvalumab 1,500 mg and platinum-based chemotherapy every 3 weeks for 4 cycles, followed by durvalumab 1,500 mg every 4 weeks as a single agent. A fifth dose of IMJUDO 75 mg (or 1mg/kg for patients < 30kg) was given at Week 16 in combination with durvalumab dose 6.
    Platinum-based chemotherapy every 3 weeks as monotherapy for 4 cycles. Patients could receive an additional 2 cycles (a total of 6 cycles post-randomization), as clinically indicated, at Investigator’s discretion.

    Patients received IMJUDO and durvalumab in combination with one of the following platinum-based chemotherapy regimens:

    Non-squamous NSCLC
    Pemetrexed 500 mg/m2 with carboplatin AUC 5-6 or cisplatin 75 mg/m2 every 3 weeks for 4 cycles
    Squamous NSCLC
    Gemcitabine 1,000 or 1,250 mg/m2 on Days 1 and 8 with cisplatin 75 mg/m2 or carboplatin AUC 5-6 on Day 1 every 3 weeks for 4 cycles
    Non-squamous and Squamous NSCLC
    Nab-paclitaxel 100 mg/m2 on Days 1, 8, and 15 with carboplatin AUC 5-6 on Day 1 every 3 weeks for 4 cycles

    IMJUDO was given up to a maximum of 5 doses. Durvalumab and histology-based pemetrexed continued every 4 weeks until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Administration of durvalumab monotherapy was permitted beyond disease progression if the patient was clinically stable and deriving clinical benefit as determined by the Investigator. Patients with disease progression during durvalumab monotherapy were given the option to be retreated with 4 additional cycles of IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab. Tumor assessments were performed at Week 6, Week 12, and then every 8 weeks thereafter.

    The major efficacy outcome measures were progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) of IMJUDO and durvalumab in combination with platinum-based chemotherapy compared to platinum-based chemotherapy alone. Additional efficacy outcome measures were overall response rate (ORR) and duration of response (DoR). PFS, ORR, and DoR were assessed using Blinded Independent Central Review (BICR) according to RECIST v1.1.

    A total of 675 patients were randomized to receive either IMJUDO with durvalumab and platinum-based chemotherapy (n=338) or platinum-based chemotherapy (n=337). The median age was 63 years (range: 27 to 87), 46% of patients age ≥ 65 years, 77% male, 57% White, 34% Asian, 0.3% Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, 3% American Indian or Alaska Native, 2% Black or African American, 4% Other Race, 79% former or current smoker, 34% ECOG PS 0, and 66% ECOG PS 1. Thirty-six percent had squamous histology, 63% non-squamous histology, 29% PD-L1 expression TC ≥ 50%, 71% PD-L1 expression TC < 50%.

    Efficacy results are summarized in Table 9 and Figure 2.

    chills or shaking
    itching or rash
    flushing
    shortness of breath or wheezing
    dizziness
    feel like passing out
    fever
    back or neck pain

    Getting medical treatment right away may help keep these problems from becoming more serious.

    Your healthcare provider will check you for these problems during your treatment with IMJUDO. Your healthcare provider may treat you with corticosteroid or hormone replacement medicines. Your healthcare provider may also need to delay or completely stop treatment with IMJUDO , if you have severe side effects.

    What is IMJUDO?

     
    IMJUDO is a prescription medicine used in combination with durvalumab to treat adults with:
    a type of liver cancer called unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (uHCC). IMJUDO may be used in combination with durvalumab when your uHCC cannot be removed by surgery.
    a type of lung cancer called non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). IMJUDO may be used in combination with durvalumab and chemotherapy that contains platinum when your NSCLC:
    o
    has spread to other parts of your body (metastatic), and
    o
    your tumor does not have an abnormal “EGFR” or “ALK” gene.

    It is not known if IMJUDO is safe and effective in children.

    Before you receive IMJUDO, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

    have immune system problems such as Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or lupus
    have a condition that affects your nervous system, such as myasthenia gravis or Guillain-Barré syndrome
    are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. IMJUDO can harm your unborn baby.
    are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if IMJUDO passes into your breast milk. Do not breastfeed during treatment and for 3 months after your last dose of IMJUDO.

    Females who are able to become pregnant

    Your healthcare provider should do a pregnancy test before you start treatment with IMJUDO.
    You should use an effective method of birth control during your treatment and for 3 months after your last dose of IMJUDO. Talk to your healthcare provider about birth control methods that you can use during this time.
    Tell your healthcare provider right away if you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant during treatment with IMJUDO.

    Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

    How will I receive IMJUDO?

    Your healthcare provider will determine your treatment schedule and cycles of treatment.
    Your healthcare provider will give you IMJUDO into your vein through an intravenous (IV) line over 60 minutes.
    For the treatment of uHCC:
    o
    On the same day you receive IMJUDO, you will receive durvalumab through an intravenous (IV) line over 60 minutes.
    o
    IMJUDO is given to you as a single dose.
    o
    You will then receive durvalumab every 4 weeks
    For the treatment of NSCLC:
    o
    On the same day you receive IMJUDO, you will receive durvalumab followed by platinum-containing chemotherapy. You will receive combination chemotherapy every 3 weeks for four cycles (Cycle 1-4).
    o
    You will receive IMJUDO in combination with durvalumab for one cycle only (Cycle 6).
    o
    You will then receive durvalumab every 4 weeks. You healthcare provider will decide if you will also receive chemotherapy every 4 weeks.
    Your healthcare provider will test your blood to check you for certain side effects.
    If you miss your appointment, call your healthcare provider as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment.

    What are the possible side effects of IMJUDO?
