Lung Cancer Clinical Trial
Adaptive SBRT Plus Chemoimmunotherapy for ES-SCLC
This is trial studying the safety of adaptive stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) combined with durvalumab immunotherapy, platinum chemotherapy, and etoposide chemotherapy in platinum refractory extensive stage small cell lung cancer (SCLC).
This is a phase Ib, open-label, single-arm study in newly diagnosed patients with extensive stage SCLC, to test the safety of the adaptive addition of SBRT to combination therapy with durvalumab, platinum, and etoposide. Approximately 50 patients with ES-SCLC will be enrolled in this study in order to identify 20 patients with platinum refractory disease who do not show evidence of early response to chemoimmunotherapy. Eligible patients will complete 2 cycles of study treatment with durvalumab, platinum (cisplatin or carboplatin per investigator choice), and etoposide. Patients will then undergo standard of care restaging imaging. Those patients who have a partial or complete response will continue with combination systemic therapy, without additional intervention.
In patients with less than a partial response (stable disease or progressive disease), SBRT will be given prior to cycle 3 of systemic therapy. The radiotherapy will be given in 5 fractions of 6 Gy to the primary tumor site. See study schema. Patients who undergo SBRT will resume systemic therapy within 2 weeks of completing SBRT and the interval between cycle 2 and cycle 3 should not exceed 6 weeks. Subsequent restaging imaging will continue as per standard of care. All patients will continue maintenance therapy with durvalumab until confirmed progressive disease.
Capable of giving signed informed consent which includes compliance with the requirements and restrictions listed in the informed consent form (ICF) and in this protocol. Written informed consent and any locally required authorization (eg, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act in the US, European Union [EU] Data Privacy Directive in the EU) obtained from the patient/legal representative prior to performing any protocol-related procedures, including screening evaluations.

Hemoglobin ≥10.0 g/dL
Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥1.5 × 109 /L

Serum bilirubin ≤1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN). This will not apply to patients with confirmed Gilbert's syndrome (persistent or recurrent hyperbilirubinemia that is predominantly unconjugated in the absence of hemolysis or hepatic pathology), who will be allowed only in consultation with their physician
AST (SGOT)/ALT (SGPT) ≤2.5 x institutional upper limit of normal unless liver metastases are present, in which case it must be ≤5x ULN
Creatinine WNL or if >ULN, then measured creatinine clearance (CL) >50 mL/min or calculated creatinine CL>50 mL/min by the Cockcroft-Gault formula (Cockcroft and Gault 1976) or by 24-hour urine collection for determination of creatinine clearance:
Creatinine CL (mL/min) = Weight (kg) x (140 - Age) 72 x serum creatinine (mg/dL)
Creatinine CL (mL/min) = Weight (kg) x (140 - Age) x 0.85 72 x serum creatinine (mg/dL)
Patient is willing and able to comply with the protocol for the duration of the study including undergoing treatment and scheduled visits and examinations including follow up.

Uncontrolled intercurrent illness, including but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, uncontrolled hypertension, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, interstitial lung disease, serious chronic gastrointestinal conditions associated with diarrhea, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirement, substantially increase risk of incurring AEs or compromise the ability of the patient to give written informed consent
