The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted regular approval to Jemperli (dostarlimab-gxly) for the treatment of adults with mismatch repair deficient (dMMR) recurrent or advanced endometrial cancer, as determined by an FDA-approved test, that has progressed on or following prior treatment with a platinum-containing regimen in any setting and are not candidates for curative surgery or radiation.
Jemperli was previously granted accelerated approval for this indication based on tumor response rate and durability of response in the phase 1 GARNET trial (ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT02715284). The conversion to regular approval was based on data from an additional 141 patients with dMMR recurrent or advanced endometrial cancer who had progressed on or after a platinum-containing regimen.
Patients received dostarlimab 500mg intravenously (IV) every 3 weeks for 4 doses followed by 1000mg IV every 6 weeks until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. The major efficacy endpoints were overall response rate (ORR) and duration of response (DOR).
Results showed a confirmed ORR of 45.4% (95% CI, 37.0-54.0), with 15.6% of patients achieving complete response and 29.8% having partial response. The median DOR was not reached with 85.9% of patients having a response lasting at least 12 months and 54.7% of patients having a response lasting at least 24 months (range: 1.2+, 52.8+). The most common adverse reactions reported were fatigue/asthenia, anemia, rash, nausea, diarrhea, constipation, and vomiting.
“This US regulatory action confirms our confidence in Jemperli as an important treatment option for patients with dMMR recurrent or advanced endometrial cancer,” said Hesham Abdullah, Senior Vice President, Global Head of Oncology Development, GSK. “We continue to unlock the potential of Jemperli as the backbone for our immuno-oncology development programs to address the unmet needs of patients, including earlier lines of endometrial cancer and other solid tumors.”
