The tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) are becoming the first line of therapy for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Acquired mutations in EGFR account for one of the major mechanisms of resistance to the TKIs. Three generations of EGFR TKIs have been used in clinical applications. AZD9291 (osimertinib; Tagrisso) is the first and only FDA approved third-generation EGFR TKI for T790M-positive advanced NSCLC patients. However, resistance to AZD9291 arises after 9-13 months of therapy...

BACKGROUND: Osimertinib (AZD9291) is an oral, potent, irreversible EGFR tyrosine-kinase inhibitor selective for EGFR tyrosine-kinase inhibitor sensitising mutations, and the EGFR Thr790Met resistance mutation. We assessed the efficacy and safety of osimertinib in patients with EGFR Thr790Met-positive non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), who had progressed after previous therapy with an approved EGFR tyrosine-kinase inhibitor. METHODS: In this phase 2, open-label, single-arm study (AURA2), patients aged at least 18 years with centrally confirmed EGFR Thr790Met-positive mutations, locally advanced or metastatic (stage IIIB/IV) NSCLC who progressed on previous EGFR tyrosine-kinase inhibitor therapy received osimertinib 80 mg orally once daily; treatment could continue beyond progression if the investigator observed a clinical benefit...

Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are the evidence-based first-line treatment for advanced non-small-cell lung cancer that harbors sensitizing EGFR mutations (EGFRm(+)) such as exon 19 deletions and L858R substitutions in exon 21. However, acquired resistance to EGFR TKIs is mostly driven by a second-site EGFR T790M mutation, which negates their inhibitory activity. Osimertinib (AZD9291, Tagrisso™), an oral, third-generation EGFR TKI, has been designed to target the EGFR T790M mutation, while sparing wild-type EGFR...

In recent years, tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have been shown capable of inhibiting the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter-mediated multidrug resistance (MDR). In this study, we determine whether osimertinib, a novel selective, irreversible EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor) TKI, could reverse ABC transporter-mediated MDR. The results showed that, at non-toxic concentrations, osimertinib significantly sensitized both ABCB1-transfected and drug-selected cell lines to substrate anticancer drugs colchicine, paclitaxel, and vincristine...

The acquisition of a resistance EGFR mutation in exon 20 (T790M) occurs in half of the cases of secondary resistance to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI), given in first-line treatment in advanced EGFR-mutated non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC). Osimertinib (AZD9291, Tagrisso(®)) is a third-generation, irreversible EGFR TKI, active in case of T790M mutation. A large phase I trial showed the efficacy of osimertinib after failure of first-generation EGFR TKI (erlotinib, gefitinib), with response rate at 51% and up to 61% in case of T790M mutation...

Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients carrying specific EGFR kinase activating mutations (L858R, delE746-A750) respond well to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). However, drug resistance develops within a year. In about 50% of such patients, acquired drug resistance is attributed to the enrichment of a constitutively active point mutation within the EGFR kinase domain (T790M). To date, differential drug-binding and altered ATP affinities by EGFR mutants have been shown to be responsible for differential TKI response...

BACKGROUND: Osimertinib (AZD9291, Tagrisso) is a potent, irreversible third-generation epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI). CASE REPORT: Our report demonstrates that osimertinib is able to inhibit the growth of a radiotherapy- and surgery-refractory EGFR T790M-positive brain metastasis in a patient with lung adenocarcinoma. CONCLUSION: These data show that re-biopsy in EGFR-mutated non-small cell lung cancer patients with acquired TKI resistance should be performed...

A method for the quantitative analysis by ultra-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry of the highly selective irreversible covalent inhibitor of EGFR-TK, osimertinib in human plasma was developed and validated, using pazopanib as an internal standard. The validation was performed in a range from 1 to 1000ng/ml, with the lowest level corresponding to the lower limit of quantitation. Gradient elution was performed on a 1.8μm particle trifunctional bonded C18 column by 1% (v/v) formic acid in water, and acetonitrile as mobile phase...

The 3rd generation epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs; e.g., AZD9291), which selectively and irreversibly inhibit EGFR activating and T790M mutants, represent very promising therapeutic options for patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that has become resistant to 1st generation EGFR-TKIs due to T790M mutation. However, eventual resistance to the 3rd generation EGFR-TKIs has already been described in the clinic, resulting in disease progression. Therefore, there is a great challenge and urgent need to understand how this resistance occurs and to develop effective strategies to delay or overcome the resistance...

T790M mutation is the most common mechanism for resistance to first- and second-generation tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) for epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). Several third-generation EGFR mutant selective TKIs are being explored to conquer this resistance. AZD9291 (osimertinib, tagrisso) has been approved for treatment of the metastatic EGFR T790M mutation-positive non-small cell lung cancer. Resistance to AZD9291 has been described. C797S mutation was reported to be a major mechanism for resistance to T790M-targeting EGFR inhibitors...

Osimertinib (AZD9291) is a potent, selective, irreversible inhibitor of EGFR-sensitizing (exon 19 and L858R) and T790M-resistant mutation. In vivo, in the mouse, it is metabolized to an active des-methyl metabolite, AZ5104. To understand the therapeutic potential in patients, this study aimed to assess the relationship between osimertinib pharmacokinetics, the pharmacokinetics of the active metabolite, the pharmacodynamics of phosphorylated EGFR reduction, and efficacy in mouse xenograft models of EGFR-driven cancers, including two NSCLC lines...

PURPOSE: Approximately one-third of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) harboring tumors with EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI)-sensitizing mutations (EGFRm) experience disease progression during treatment due to brain metastases. Despite anecdotal reports of EGFR-TKIs providing benefit in some patients with EGFRm NSCLC brain metastases, there is a clinical need for novel EGFR-TKIs with improved efficacy against brain lesions. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: We performed preclinical assessments of brain penetration and activity of osimertinib (AZD9291), an oral, potent, irreversible EGFR-TKI selective for EGFRm and T790M resistance mutations, and other EGFR-TKIs in various animal models of EGFR-mutant NSCLC brain metastases...

Third-generation EGFR TKI has been approved in the US and EU for the treatment of EGFR mutant T790M+ NSCLC patients that are resistant to first- or second generation EGFR TKIs. Here we report a patient who developed resistance to osimertinib after a confirmed partial response for 9 months. Pre-osimertinib and post-osimertinib tumor biopsy revealed the emergence of high level of MET amplification (30 copies) post osimertinib treatment. Patient was treated with single agent crizotinib, a known MET inhibitor, with transient symptomatic benefit...

AZD9291, a T790M specific epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), has demonstrated impressive response rates in tumours harbouring the EGFR T790M resistance mutation. Emergence of resistance to AZD9291 has been shown to occur through several different mechanisms including the development of new mutations (e.g. C797S) in the EGFR tyrosine kinase domain. We studied two patients with paired tumour biopsies and blood samples pre- and post-progression on AZD9291 to explore possible resistance mechanisms...

PURPOSE: Third-generation epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have demonstrated potent activity against TKI resistance mediated by EGFR T790M. We studied whether noninvasive genotyping of cell-free plasma DNA (cfDNA) is a useful biomarker for prediction of outcome from a third-generation EGFR-TKI, osimertinib. METHODS: Plasma was collected from all patients in the first-in-man study of osimertinib. Patients who were included had acquired EGFR-TKI resistance and evidence of a common EGFR-sensitizing mutation...

The overexpression of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters has been proved to be a major trigger for multidrug resistance (MDR) in certain types of cancer. In our study, we investigated whether osimertinib (AZD9291), a third-generation irreversible tyrosine kinase inhibitor of both activating EGFR mutations and resistance-associated T790M point mutation, could reverse MDR induced by ABCB1 and ABCG2 in vitro, in vivo, and ex vivo Our results showed that osimertinib significantly increased the sensitivity of ABCB1- and ABCG2-overexpressing cells to their substrate chemotherapeutic agents in vitro and in the model of ABCB1-overexpressing KBv200 cell xenograft in nude mice...

The discovery of sensitizing epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations as a predictive marker of sensitivity to first-generation EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) has dramatically changed the paradigm of care for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. Unfortunately, the majority of patients with EGFR-mutant NSCLC treated with EGFR-TKIs develop acquired resistance within 14-16 months. T790M mutation recently emerged as a major determinant of acquired resistance to gefitinib and erlotinib...
