February 3, 2021—Tepotinib was approved for treatment of patients with metastatic NSCLC who harbor MET exon 14 skipping alterations. Approval was based on data from the VISION trial (NCT02864992).
VISION, a multicenter, nonrandomized, open-label, multicohort trial, enrolled 152 patients with advanced or metastatic NSCLC and MET exon 14 skipping alterations. Patients received 450 mg of oral tepotinib once daily until unacceptable toxicity or disease progression.
Of the 69 patients who had not received prior therapy, the overall response rate (ORR) was 43% (95% CI: 32%, 56%), with a median response duration of 10.8 months (95% CI: 6.9, NE). The ORR for the 89 previously treated patients also was 43% (95% CI: 33%, 55%), and the median response duration was 11.11 months (95% CI: 9.5, 18.5).
The most common adverse reactions experienced by > 20% of patients were edema, fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, musculoskeletal pain, and dyspnea.
