Introduction/Background Dostarlimab is a humanised programmed death (PD)-1 receptor monoclonal antibody that blocks interaction with the PD-1 ligands, PD-L1 and –L2. GARNET is a phase 1 study assessing antitumour activity and safety of dostarlimab monotherapy in patients with advanced solid tumours.

Methodology This multicentre, open-label, single-arm study is being conducted in 2 parts, dose escalation and expansion. Here we report on 2 independent expansion cohorts of patients with recurrent or advanced endometrial cancer (EC) that progressed on or after a platinum-based chemotherapy regimen. Assignment to cohort A1 (mismatch mutation repair deficient [dMMR] EC) or cohort A2 (mismatch mutation repair proficient [MMRp] EC) was determined by immunohistochemistry (IHC) testing. Patients received 500 mg dostarlimab intravenously once every 3 weeks for 4 cycles, then 1000 mg once every 6 weeks until disease progression, discontinuation or withdrawal. The primary endpoints are objective response rate (ORR) and duration of response (DOR) by blinded independent central review using RECIST version 1.1.

Results In total, 126 dMMR and 145 MMRp pts identified by IHC were enrolled and dosed. Of these, 103 dMMR and 142 MMRp pts had measurable disease as baseline and sufficient follow-up time (6 months) for efficacy analyses, respectively. Patients that progressed prior to 6 months were included in the evaluable population. ORR for dMMR EC was 44.7%; ORR for MMRp EC was 13.4% (table 1). Median DOR and OS were not reached in either cohort. Overall, 15 pts (5.5%) discontinued treatment due a TRAE (5 dMMR, 10 MMRp). Safety by cohort and overall are shown in table 2. There were no deaths attributed to dostarlimab.

Most common adverse events

Conclusion Dostarlimab demonstrated durable antitumour activity in both dMMR and MMRp advanced/recurrent EC. dMMR status by IHC was associated with a higher response rate. Dostarlimab demonstrated a notable disease control rate (35.2%; 2.1% complete response, 11.3% partial response, 21.8% stable disease) in patients with MMRp EC, which comprised a higher percentage of patients with Type II EC and is historically associated with a worse prognosis. No new safety signals were detected. These cohorts are the largest prospective evaluation of a PD-(L)1 therapy in EC to date.
