    Study Title:

    A Phase 2 Multicenter Study of Autologous Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes (LN-145) in Patients with Metastatic Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer


    LN-145 is a ready-to-infuse, autologous TIL therapy that utilizes an autologous TIL manufacturing process, as originally developed by the NCI and further optimized by Iovance for the treatment of patients with metastatic NSCLC. The cell transfer therapy used in this study involves patients receiving an NMA lymphocyte depleting preparative regimen, followed by infusion of autologous TIL, then finally followed by the administration of IL-2.


    Primary Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of LN-145 in patients with metastatic NSCLC without an actionable driver mutation who have disease progression on or following a single line of approved systemic therapy consisting of combined immune checkpoint inhibitor(s) (CPI[s]) + chemotherapy ± bevacizumab, as determined by objective response rate (ORR), using the RECIST v1.1, as assessed by the Independent Review Committee (IRC) (Cohorts 1 and 2) or by the Investigator (Cohorts 3 and 4) Secondary Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy of LN-145, as determined by ORR, using RECIST v1.1, as assessed by the Investigator (Cohorts 1 and 2 only) To further evaluate the efficacy of LN-145 using complete response (CR) rate; duration of response (DOR); disease control rate (DCR); progression-free survival (PFS) using RECIST v1.1, as assessed by the IRC (Cohorts 1 and 2 only) and Investigator (all cohorts); and overall survival (OS) To characterize the safety profile of LN-145 in NSCLC patients, as measured by the incidence of Grade ≥ 3 treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) For Cohort 3 only: To evaluate the efficiency of generating LN-145 from tumor core biopsies Exploratory Objectives: To evaluate the persistence of LN-145 and to identify immune correlates that may correlate with response, outcome, and toxicity variables To assess respective, indication-specific, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) parameters
