Introduction: Limited stage small cell lung cancer (LS-SCLC) is treated with standard of care platinum/etoposide (EP) and thoracic radiation therapy (TRT) with curative intent, however the majority of patients are not cured and median overall survival is approximately 30 months. Addition of atezolizumab to chemotherapy in extensive stage SCLC has improved progression free and overall survival in a non-curative setting leading to hope that addition of an immune checkpoint inhibitor to standard chemoradiotherapy could benefit LS-SCLC patients. LU005 is a randomized phase II/III trial of standard concurrent chemoradiation with or without atezolizumab for patients with LS-SCLC.

Methods: Patients are randomly assigned in a 1:1 ratio to standard EP chemotherapy with concurrent TRT (45 Gy BID or 66 Gy QD) with or without atezolizumab beginning concurrently with TRT, and continued every 3 weeks for up to 12 months. Eligible patients have LS-SCLC, PS 0-2, adequate organ function, no concerning comorbidities (including no active autoimmune disease) and are eligible for TRT. Patients are randomized prior to their second cycle of EP and thoracic radiation begins with the second overall cycle of chemotherapy (first cycle of study therapy) in both treatment arms. Prophylactic cranial radiation (PCI) is recommended for patients who respond to treatment. The phase II/III primary endpoints are progression free (PFS) and overall survival (OS) respectively. Secondary endpoints include objective response rates, local and distant disease control, and quality of life/patient reported outcomes assessment. Translational science component includes blood and tissue based immune related assays.

Results: This study activated in May 2019. 120 of 506 planned patients have been accrued as of 8/20/2020.
