This is a prospective, open-label, multi-cohort, non-randomized, multicenter phase 2 study evaluating LN-145 in patients with metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer

Official Title

A Phase 2 Multicenter Study of Autologous Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes (TIL or LN-145) in Patients With Metastatic Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer


LN-145 is a ready-to-infuse TIL therapy that utilizes an autologous TIL manufacturing process, as originally developed by the NCI and further optimized by Iovance for the treatment of patients with metastatic NSCLC. The cell transfer therapy used in this study involves patients receiving a non-myeloablative (NMA) lymphodepleting preparative regimen, followed by infusion of autologous TIL, then finally followed by the administration of IL-2.

Open to people ages 18-70

  • Patients who are over 70 years of age may be allowed to enroll after consultation with the Medical Monitor.
  • Have historically or pathologically confirmed diagnosis of metastatic Stage IV NSCLC without EGFR, ALK, or ROS genomic alterations.
  • For patients who have actionable mutations (other than EGFR, ALK, or ROS genomic alterations), 1 additional line of therapy with the appropriate targeted therapy will be allowed.
  • Patients must have documented radiographic disease progression on or after the first-line therapy, including concurrent or sequential ICI and platinum-based chemotherapy ± bevacizumab. No more than 1 prior line is allowed if ICI and platinum-based chemotherapy were administered concurrently and no more than 2 prior lines are allowed for sequential administration of platinum-based chemotherapy and ICI as 2 separate lines.
  • LN-145 manufacture is allowed for patients who have residual resectable disease after completion of the platinum-based chemotherapy component of the front-line ICI and platinum-based chemotherapy combination and meet all eligibility criteria except documented disease progression. These patients must intend to receive TIL therapy after disease progression
  • Prior systemic therapy in the adjuvant or neoadjuvant setting, or as part of definitive chemoradiotherapy, will count as a line of therapy if the patient had disease progression during or within 12 months after the completion of such therapy.
  • At least 1 resectable lesion for TIL production and at least one remaining measurable lesion, as defined by RECIST v1.1
  • Have adequate organ function
  • LVEF > 45%, NYHA Class 1
  • Have adequate pulmonary function
  • ECOG performance status of 0 or 1
  • Patients of childbearing potential or those with partners of childbearing potential must be willing to practice an approved method of highly effective birth control during treatment and up to 12 months after all protocol-related therapy

You CAN'T join if...

  • Patients who have any form of primary immunodeficiency
  • Patients who are on systemic steroid therapy ≥ 10 mg/day of prednisone or equivalent.
  • Patients who have received a live or attenuated vaccination within 28 days prior to the start of treatment
  • Patients who have had another primary malignancy within the previous 3 years
  • Participation in another interventional clinical study within 21 days
