안명주 혈액종양내과 교수가 ‘폐암환자 중 ROS1 유전자 변이가 있는 환자에서 ceritinib의 임상효과’에 대한 결과를 세계 최초로 조병철 연세의대 교수와 공동연구를 진행해  5월호에 게재했다. 논문 제목은 ‘Open-Label, Multicenter, Phase II Study of Ceritinib in Patients With Non–Small-Cell Lung Cancer Harboring ROS1 Rearrangement’이다.
안 교수팀은 이번 연구에서 비소세포폐암환자중 ROS1 유전자변이는 약 1~2%에 해당하는 드문 유전자로 이 환자들에게 ceritinib 약을 투여함으로써 62%의 반응률과 9.3개월의 무진행 생존기간의 매우 우수한 결과를 보고해 환자들에게 새로운 치료법을 제시했고, 폐암 치료에서의 유전자 변이에 근거한 맞춤치료인 암 정밀의학을 구현하여 세계적으로 주목을 받고 있다.

Purpose ROS1 rearrangement is a distinct molecular subset of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We investigated the efficacy and safety of ceritinib in patients with ROS1-rearranged NSCLC. Patients and Methods We enrolled 32 patients with advanced NSCLC who tested positive for ROS1 rearrangement by fluorescent in situ hybridization. Ceritinib 750 mg was administered once daily. The primary end point was objective response rate. The secondary end points were disease control rate; duration of response; progression-free survival; overall survival; toxicity; and concordance among fluorescent in situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry, and next-generation sequencing. Results Between June 7, 2013, and February 1, 2016, 404 patients underwent ROS1 prescreening, and 32 patients with ROS1 rearrangement were enrolled. All patients except two were crizotinib-naïve. At the time of data cutoff, the median follow-up was 14.0 months, and 18 patients (56%) had discontinued treatment. Of the 32 patients enrolled, 28 were evaluable for response by independent radiologic review. Objective response rate was 62% (95% CI, 45% to 77%), with one complete response and 19 partial responses; duration of response was 21.0 months (95% CI, 17 to 25 months); and disease control rate was 81% (95% CI, 65% to 91%). The median progression-free survival was 9.3 months (95% CI, 0 to 22 months) for all patients and 19.3 months (95% CI, 1 to 37 months) for crizotinib-naïve patients. The median overall survival was 24 months (95% CI, 5 to 43 months). Of the eight patients with brain metastases, intracranial disease control was reported in five (63%; 95% CI, 31% to 86%). The most common adverse events (majority, grade 1 or 2) for all treated patients were diarrhea (78%), nausea (59%), and anorexia (56%). Conclusion Ceritinib demonstrated potent clinical activity in patients with ROS1-rearranged NSCLC who were heavily treated previously with multiple lines of chemotherapy.
