Beijing Avistone Biotechnology Co., Ltd. (also referred to as Avistone Biotechnology or Avistone), an innovative biotechnology company focused on precision oncology therapeutics, announced results from the two presentations at the 2024 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL.

Details and highlights from the presentations are as follows:

Oral Presentation:
Title: Efficacy and safety of the Vebreltinib in previously treated, secondary glioblastoma / IDH mutant glioblastoma patients with PTPRZ1-METFUsion GENe (FUGEN): a randomised, multicentre, open-label, phase II/III trial
Presenter: Zhaoshi Bao, MD, PhD Department of Neurosurgery, Beijing Tiantan Hospital, Capital Medical University, China
Session Title: Central Nervous System Tumors
Published Abstract Number: 2003

Isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH)-mutant gliomas carry a high risk of malignant transformation from low-grade gliomas into high-grade gliomas within 10 years, resulting in poor prognosis. Effective targeted drugs for high-grade gliomas are still lacking.

In this open-label, phase II/III trial, 84 patients with histologically confirmed secondary GBM or IDH-mutant GBM were assigned in a 1:1 ratio to receive twice-daily oral vebreltinib at a 300 mg dose or the investigator’s choice of chemotherapy (temozolomide [100-150 mg/m2/day, 7 days on followed by 7 days off ]) or cis-platinum [80-100 mg/m2 for 3 days] combined with etoposide [100mg/m2/day for 3 days]) every 28 days. The primary endpoint was overall survival (OS), and the secondary endpoints were progression-free survival (PFS) and objective response rate (ORR).

42 patients of the vebreltinib group and 39 patients of the chemotherapy group were included in the full analysis set. After a median follow-up of 4.44 months, the median OS in the vebreltinib group and chemotherapy group was 6.31 months (95% CI, 4.44-8.77) and 3.38 months (95% CI, 2.37-4.27), respectively. The HR for OS was 0.52 (90% CI, 0.32-0.85; P = 0.009). The median PFS in the vebreltinib group and chemotherapy group was 1.87 months (95% CI, 1.41-2.76) and 1.05 months (95% CI, 0.95-1.77), respectively. The HR for PFS was 0.54 (95% CI, 0.33-0.88; P = 0.014). No significant differences were observed in ORR (9.5% vs. 2.6%) for the vebreltinib group and chemotherapy group.

Treatment-related adverse events of grade 3 or 4 were reported in 7% of the patients in the vebreltinib group, as compared with 12.2% of those in the chemotherapy group. No treatment-related deaths were observed.

These results of the FUGEN trial support the use of vebreltinib as the first target therapy in patients with previously treated, PTPRZ1-MET fusion gene positive, secondary glioblastoma / IDH-mutant glioblastoma, and shed light on a novel therapeutic pathway in the landscape of IDH-mutant high-grade gliomas.

“The development of drugs for indications related to MET targets has always been a difficult one. This is not only a victory for translational medicine, but also marks the advent of the era of targeted therapy in the field of brain glioma,” said Dr. Hepeng Shi, Chairman, CEO, and Founder of Avistone.

Clinical Trials Information: NCT06105619 and ChiCTR2300077783

Poster Presentation:
Title: Efficacy and Safety of Vebreltinib in Patients with Advanced NSCLC Harboring MET Exon 14-Skipping: Results of 2.5-year follow-up in KUNPENG
Presenter: Jin-Ji Yang, Guangdong Lung Cancer Institute, Guangdong Provincial People’s Hospital and Guangdong Academy of Medical Sciences, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, China
Session Title: Lung Cancer – Non-Small Cell Metastatic
Abstract Number: 8557

MET exon 14 skipping mutation is present approximately 3% to 4% of non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLCs) and is associated with poorer survival rates. Vebreltinib (PLB1001), a potent and highly selective c-MET inhibitor, demonstrated superior objective response rate (ORR) benefits in locally advanced or metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients (pts) with MET exon 14 (METex14) skipping mutations in the previous analysis of the phase II KUNPENG study.

In this Phase II, open-label, multicenter, and multi-cohort study, tumor tissue was assessed for METex14 skipping mutation using next-generation sequencing (NGS) from CAP or CLIA certificated local or central laboratories. Patients in Cohort 1 received 200 mg of vebreltinib twice daily (28 days per cycle) until discontinuation criteria were met. The primary endpoint was ORR assessed by blinded independent review committee (BIRC).

Between Jan 17, 2020 and Feb 09, 2021, 52 patients were enrolled in Cohort 1. As of the data cutoff date (Aug 09, 2023), the median duration of follow-up was 19.1 months (range, 1.0-42.7) and the median duration of treatment was 9.9 months (range, 0.6-42.7). Per BIRC assessment, the ORR was 75% (95% CI: 61.1-86.0), the disease control rate (DCR) was 96.2% (95% CI 86.8-99.5), the median duration of response (DoR) was 16.5 months (95% CI 9.2-19.4), the median time to response (TTR) was 1.0 month (95% CI 1.0-2.8), the median progression-free survival (PFS) was 14.3 months (95% CI 6.4-18.2), and the median overall survival (OS) was 20.3 months (95% CI 16.2-29.7). The 3-year OS rate was 35.1%. Subgroup analyses showed the ORR was 100.0%, 66.7%, 85.7% and 100.0% among pts with any baseline brain metastases (N=5), pts with any baseline liver metastases (N=6), pts aged 75 years and older (N=21) and pts with co-occurring of MET amplification (N=12), respectively.

The most common (≥20%) treatment-related adverse events (TRAEs) in all of the 135 patients enrolled in this study were peripheral edema (56.3%), hypoalbuminemia (27.4%), hypoproteinemia (25.9%) and anemia (20.7%).

“With this study, we continue to see best-in-class potential of Vebreltinib in patients with MET exon 14 skipping mutation NSCLC,” said Dr. Hepeng Shi, Chairman, CEO, and Founder of Avistone.
