Brief Summary:
This phase II study will explore the effect of 2 monoclonal antibodies, tiragolumab and atezolizumab, in patients with locally advanced solid cancers which cannot be removed by surgery or have spread. Their cancers will have characteristics which may predict immune response to the study treatment. PD-L1 and TIGIT are immune receptors which can help cancers grow by evading the immune response and inhibiting the action of some immune cells. By blocking these receptors, tiragolumab and atezolizumab may work together to re-activate the body's anti-tumour immune response and kill cancer cells.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Solid Tumor, Adult Biological: Tiragolumab Biological: Atezolizumab Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Patients who are enrolled in the MoST or CaSP cancer screening programs, and whose tumour is assessed as amenable to tiragolumab and atezolizumab treatment, will be recommended for participation in the study. After being informed about the study, and the potential risks, patients who consent to participate undergo a 21-day screening period to determine study eligibility. Patients will be prospectively selected into subgroups based on their tumour characteristics.

Once eligibility is confirmed, tiragolumab alone is administered at Cycle 1 Day 1 (day 1 of study). Commencing from Cycle 2 Day 1, tiragolumab and atezolizumab are administered at 21-day cycles until treatment discontinuation, with or without disease progression.

Participants undergo a biopsy at cycle 2 prior to commencement of atezolizumab treatment. Standard imaging scans (usually computed tomography (CT)) are performed throughout the trial. Patients also undergo blood, urine and stool sample collection on study.

Once participants discontinue treatment, a study visit is performed within 30 days of the end of the final treatment cycle. If treatment cessation is not contemporaneous with disease progression, follow-up calls are conducted every 9 weeks until disease progression. Once disease progression occurs, a study visit is performed within 30 days of disease progression and then every 3 months until 12 months after the final participant discontinues study treatment.

Active follow-up of all participants will continue until death or 12 months after the last participant discontinues study treatment, whichever occurs first. Subsequently, survival data will be obtained through MoST or CaSP until death.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Tiragolumab and atezolizumab

96 patients will be treated with tiragolumab for one cycle (600mg IV over 60-90 minutes). At Cycle 2 Day 1, participants receive IV tiragolumab (600mg) and atezolizumab (1,200mg) over 60-90 minutes. Cycles of tiragolumab and atezolizumab repeat every 21 days, with infusion time decreased (if tolerable) until treatment discontinuation, with or without disease progression.

Because of the heterogeneity of eligible cancer types, and lack of knowledge about relevant cut-offs for this combination, analysis will be performed prospectively to allocate patients into 4 subgroups based on the following tumour characteristics;

  • Group 1: TMB ≥ 10, assessed using NGS panel screening. n=24
  • Group 2:Tumour and immune cell PD-L1 expression (TAP score) > 20% high or PD-L1 (CD274) amplification, defined as gene copy number > 6 on the panel. n=24
  • Group 3: Tumour and immune cell PD-L1 expression (TAP score) 5% - 20% int. n=24
  • Group 4: Tumour infiltrating lymphocytes CD3+CD8+ ≥ 5%. n=24
Biological: Tiragolumab

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival (PFS) rate at 6 Months [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

    The primary outcome, PFS rate at 6 months, is defined as the proportion of participants who are alive and progression free at 6 months from start of study treatment

    Radiological disease progression is defined according to modified Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours version 1.1 for immune-based therapeutics (iRECIST) or Response Assessment in Neuro-Oncology criteria (RANO).

    Clinical progression is defined as the development of:

    1. Symptoms attributable to cancer progression; or
    2. Initiation of other anticancer treatment for cancer; or
    3. Significant deterioration of performance status not explained by treatment toxicities, co-morbidities, or radiological evidence of progression; or
    4. Unequivocal development of new non-measurable disease that is not assessable according to iRECIST or RANO criteria.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective tumour response rate (OTRR) as per iRECIST or RANO criteria [ Time Frame: iRECIST/RANO every 9 weeks from study entry to objective disease progression, up to 18 months ]

    The objective tumour response rate is defined as the proportion of participants who achieved an objective response at any time point.

    Participants with an objective tumour response are defined as those assessed as having a complete or partial response according to iRECIST or RANO. Investigator assessed response status (i.e. complete response, partial response, stable disease or progressive disease) will be assessed by using iRECIST or RANO at each assessment time point. Confirmation of progressive disease will be undertaken in accordance to the iRECIST criteria.

  2. The median duration of objective tumour response [ Time Frame: iRECIST/RANO every 9 weeks from study entry to objective disease progression, up to 18 months ]
    Median duration of objective tumour response is defined as the time interval from documentation of an objective tumour response to date of first evidence of radiological disease progression.

  3. Median PFS [ Time Frame: iRECIST/RANO every 9 weeks from study entry to objective disease progression, up to 60 months ]

    PFS is defined as the interval from the start date of study treatment to the date of first evidence of disease progression (clinical or radiological) or death from any cause, whichever occurs first.

    Median PFS will be calculated. Participants who did not progress or who are still alive will be censored on the date of their last clinical assessment or tumour assessment.

  4. To evaluate the duration of clinical benefit (DCB) [ Time Frame: iRECIST/RANO every 9 weeks from study entry to objective disease progression, up to 60 months ]
    DCB is defined as the time interval from date of start of study treatment to date of first evidence of radiological disease progression.

  5. To evaluate the overall survival (OS) rate at 12 months [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 Day 1 to 12 months ]

    OS is defined as the interval from the start date of study treatment to date of death from any cause. Participants who did not die will be censored at the date of last known follow-up alive.

    OS rate at 12 months is defined as the proportion of participants who are alive at 12 months, from start date of study treatment to date of death from any cause (or the date of last known vital status during follow up within 12 months from start date of study treatment).

  6. To calculate the median overall survival [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 Day 1 to death, up to 5 years ]
    Median OS will be calculated

  7. To evaluate the time to progression (TTP) [ Time Frame: iRECIST/RANO every 9 weeks from study entry to objective disease progression, up to 60 months ]
    TTP is defined as the time interval from the start date of study treatment to the date of first evidence of disease progression on the MoST-TAP trial or death due to cancer.

  8. To calculate the median Growth Modulation Index (GMI) [ Time Frame: iRECIST/RANO every 9 weeks from study entry to objective disease progression, up to 60 months ]

    To assess clinical benefit while taking into account the disease tempo of individual patients, GMI, defined as the ratio of TTP using tiragolumab and atezolizumab in the MoST-TAP trial with the TTP in the period prior to MoST-TAP, will be calculated. GMI estimates the duration of clinical benefit normalised against the disease tempo, as estimated by the TTP before enrolment onto the MoST-TAP trial.

    If GMI is ≥1.3, then the study therapy will be defined as having benefit for the participant. The median GMI will be calculated.

  9. The incidence and rates of AEs and serious AEs (SAEs) [ Time Frame: From Cycle 1 Day 1 to 90 days after cessation of study drug ]

    The safety and tolerability of tiragolumab and atezolizumab treatment will be assessed by the incidence and rates of AEs and serious AEs (SAEs). AEs will be graded by National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI CTCAE) version 5.0.

    Tolerability is defined as the time from commencement of study treatment until interruption of treatment due to toxicity. Interruption of treatment includes treatment discontinuation or a pause in treatment. Toxicity is defined as a treatment-related AE equal to or above Grade 3 as graded by CTCAE v5.0. An AE is deemed to be due to treatment if the causal relationship between the event and tiragolumab or atezolizumab treatment is judged by the Investigator to be definitely, probably or possibly related.

  10. To evaluate the health related quality of life (HRQOL) over the course of the trial [ Time Frame: Cycle 1 Day 1, Cycle 4 Day 1 and then every third cycle until disease progression (cycles length 21 days). Also administered at the Treatment Discontinuation Visit and the Progressive Disease Visit. ]

    HRQOL will be measured by the EORTC Quality of Life of Cancer Patients (QLQ-C30 v3).

    The questionnaire includes functional, symptom and global health status / QoL scales. Patients rate items on the questionnaire from 1 (not at all) to 4 (very much) or from 1 (very poor) to 7 (excellent).

    Questionnaires are administered at Cycle 1 Day 1 (baseline, Week 1), Cycle 4 Day 1 (Week 10) and then every 3 cycles until disease progression. Questionnaires are also administered at the Treatment Discontinuation Visit and the Progressive Disease Visit.
