Pembrolizumab for Early Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Peter Schmid ... 肿瘤 • 2020.02.27
• sacituzumab govitecan-hziy治疗难治性转移性三阴性乳腺癌 • 三阴性乳腺癌的一个可能的靶点 • 贝伐珠单抗治疗BRCA1/2 突变型三阴性乳腺癌






在这项3期试验中,我们将未经治的Ⅱ期或Ⅲ期三阴性乳腺癌患者随机分组(比例为2∶1),分别以下列方案接受了新辅助治疗:一组接受帕博利珠单抗(剂量200 mg,每3周用药1次,用药4个周期)+紫杉醇+卡铂(784例患者;帕博利珠单抗-化疗组),另一组接受安慰剂(每3周用药1次)+紫杉醇+卡铂(390例患者;安慰剂-化疗组);之后两组再接受4个周期的帕博利珠单抗或安慰剂治疗,并且两组均接受多柔比星-环磷酰胺或表柔比星-环磷酰胺治疗。




在第一次期中分析中,在接受随机分组的前602例患者中,帕博利珠单抗-化疗组和安慰剂-化疗组达到病理学完全缓解的患者百分比分别为64.8%(95%置信区间[CI],59.9~69.5)和51.2%(95% CI,44.1~58.3)(估计的组间差异,13.6个百分点;95% CI,5.4~21.8;P<0.001)。经过中位15.5个月(范围,2.7~25.0)随访后,帕博利珠单抗-化疗组784例患者中的58例(7.4%)和安慰剂-化疗组390例患者中的46例(11.8%)发生了导致其无法接受确定性手术的疾病进展、发生了局部或远处复发或者第二原发肿瘤或已死亡(风险比,0.63;95% CI,0.43~0.93)。在所有治疗阶段,在帕博利珠单抗-化疗组和安慰剂-化疗组中,3级或更高级别治疗相关性不良事件的发生率分别为78.0%和73.0%,分别包括0.4%(3例患者)和0.3%(1例患者)的死亡率。
