Anti-PD-1-related pneumonitis during Cancer immunotherapy. Fatigue is a common side effect, and occurs in up to 40% of anti-CTLA-4 treated patients and in 16–37% of anti-PD-1, and 16–24% of anti-PD-L1 treated patients (4,5). Pneumonitis is a rare but serious adverse event caused by cancer immunotherapy. Table 1 shows the National Cancer Institute’s Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) gradings for immunotherapy-induced diarrhoea and colitis.

How do chemokines navigate neutrophils to the target site: dissecting the structural mechanisms and signaling pathways. Pneumonitis is a potential consequence of both lung-directed radiation and immune checkpoint blockade (ICB), particularly treatment with PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors. Thank you for your interest in spreading the word on European Respiratory Society . Cancer immunotherapy-induced rheumatic diseases emerge as new clinical entities. You’ll notice the suffix “-itis” (which means inflammation) in the names of many of these conditions. Bronchoscopy with bronchioalveolar lavage was negative for an infectious source but did reveal mucopurulent fluid with 48% neutrophils and no atypical cells. The corticosteroid treatment rapidly improved his symptoms and diarrhea. Background: We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the risk of pneumonitis and pneumonia associated with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) for solid tumors.Methods: The following keywords were used in searching the Embase and PubMed database: pneumonitis, pneumonia, and immune checkpoint inhibitors. Despite the frequency with which both radiation- and ICB- related pneumonitis occur, the pathophysiology remains unclear, and there is little data to suggest which clinical risk factors might be the most relevant. 2018. Standard management for those with severe colitis includes administration of systemic corticosteroids with the reservation of antitumor necrosis factor (anti-TNF) therapy, such as infliximab, if there has bee… Educational therapeutic programmes can optimise toxicity management. It remains unclear whether higher and/or lower dose radiation parameters will be more or less predictive of pneumonitis in the setting of ICB, although the overall tolerability of combined radiation / ICB will likely make this a difficult question to address. c and d demonstrated resolving peripheral consolidation that appeared on Fig. Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) are monoclonal antibodies that target inhibitory molecules, such as cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 (CTLA-4), programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1), or its ligand, programmed cell death protein ligand 1 (PD-L1), and lead to immune activation in the tumor micro-environment.

Morganstein Therapeutic Advances in Endocrinology and Metabolism 2019 10.1177/2042018819896182 J Clin Oncol. The patient was briefly hospitalized, and he started treatment with corticosteroids at a dose of 1 mg/kg of IV solumedrol which was transitioned to oral prednisone. They usually occur during the first few months and are linked to nonspecific clinical symptoms but have suggestive radiological signs. However it is notable that this process was limited to the ipsilateral right lung that had received radiation while the left lung remained without evidence of pneumonitis. This disease is difficult to diagnose and has great morbidity. Furthermore, manifestations of lung toxicity in this case were suggestive of an interaction between radiation and ICB-mediated toxicity, as the radiation induced pneumonitis developed at a relatively low radiation dose otherwise unlikely to result in symptomatic toxicity, and the ICB-related pneumonitis was limited to the ipsilateral right lung. e, f. Further follow-up CT taken 1.5 months after Fig. The overlapping respiratory signs and symptoms of cough, shortness of breath, and hypoxemia create a diagnostic challenge. Endoscopy, including bronchoalveolar lavage and transbronchial lung biopsies can refine a diagnosis by excluding pulmonary infection and showing lymphocytic alveolitis. He received 48 Gy of right axillary radiation delivered over 20 fractions, completing in October 2017.

Clinical and radiologic data were subsequently collected retrospectively as allowed by the approved protocol. Online ISSN: 1600-0617, Copyright © 2021 by the European Respiratory Society. These results suggest the cytokines CXCL2, IL1ra and IL2ra should be evaluated in future clinical trial patients who develop radiation and/or ICB-related pneumonitis. JAMA oncology. Patients should be informed that most immune-related adverse events are reversible if they are detected early and specifically addressed. 2016;22(24):6051–60. Can we re-challenge patients with immunotherapy following lung toxicity? The volume of the total right lung receiving 20 Gy was < 14% (V20 = 13.6%) and volume of the total lung receiving 20 Gy was < 8%. Objective We sought to investigate the long-term outcomes of patients who develop immune checkpoint inhibitor (ICI)-induced inflammatory arthritis (IA), to define factors associated with IA persistence after ICI cessation, the need for immunosuppressants and the impact of these medications on underlying malignancies. One patient died of Grade 5 pneumonitis and the other four had Grade 3 and survived. JDS, MN, RHM and FSH analyzed and interpreted the patient data. In 2017, a cardiac MRI performed for viral myocarditis incidentally revealed enlarged right axillary lymph nodes. In addition to the radiologic findings, we interrogated circulating cytokine levels over the course of treatment. Immune checkpoint inhibitors are reshaping the prognosis of many cancer and are progressively becoming the standard of care in the treatment of many tumour types. Physical exam was notable for an oxygen saturation of 92–93% at rest and diminished breath sounds in the right lung. Interstitial pneumonitis with fibrosis occurs after 3–6 months of therapy. 2f, white arrow). However, he developed increased symptoms of fatigue and shortness of breath in conjunction with the corticosteroid taper (at a dose of less than 0.2 mg/kg) approximately 2 months later in April 2018. PET-CT demonstrated avidity within multiple axillary lymph nodes without clear evidence of other metastatic disease. Animal morbidity and lung fibrosis were measured. The radiologic findings demonstrated several different components that are individually more characteristic of either radiation or ICB-induced toxicity; however, when examined in combination and in clinical context, these findings raise the question whether initial lung injury from radiation can be exacerbated by ICB. However, among 14 published cases of steroid-refractory ICI-related pneumonitis treated with infliximab, 8 showed deterioration. He also developed diarrhea (2–3 times daily). N Engl J Med. Cancer immunology research. Article  In this study, patients with immune-related adverse events presented a higher objective response rate (63.6% versus 7.4% p<0.01) and longer progression free-survival (HR 0.10, 95% CI 0.04–1.46; p=0.13) [43]. Whether immune-related adverse events are associated with clinical outcome remains unclear. 2017;98(2):344–51. His symptoms improved with corticosteroid treatment, worsened when corticosteroids were tapered, and then finally resolved after treatment with the TNF-alpha-inhibitor infliximab. Conflict of interest: L. Guilleminault has nothing to disclose. His corticosteroids were increased and his symptoms improved. Furthermore, clinicians are prone to under-report the incidence and severity of symptoms . Follow up CT scan demonstrated continued resolution of the peripheral opacities within the radiation treatment field as well as resolution of previously noted peripheral consolidation outside of the radiation treatment field (Fig. CT of the chest also normalized with resolution of GGO and nodular opacities that had been previously observed. Severe colitis has been reported in approximately 5% of patients treated with cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen-4 (CTLA-4) inhibitors, such as ipilimumab. Adjuvant Nivolumab versus Ipilimumab in resected stage III or IV melanoma. Google Scholar. These concentrations were then analyzed using the FLEXMAP 3D Luminex System and quantified by Standard Curve extrapolation. Overall survival with Durvalumab after Chemoradiotherapy in stage III NSCLC. 2a and b). Additional studies are required to further understand the clinical characteristics and chronology of these adverse effects and to clarify the mechanism(s) leading immunotherapy to cause these immune-related events. We find that a few cytokines including CXCL2, IL1ra and IL2ra increase and then decrease in conjunction with the development of pneumonitis and subsequent treatment and before subsequent flares. … L−1), and positive Aspergillus fumigatus IgE antibodies were consistent with a diagnosis of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis. For example, in lung cancer patients, rates of grade 2 or higher pneumonitis were found to be 0% when the volume of the lung receiving 20 Gray (Gy) or higher was less than 22%, as compared to a 42% risk if the volume receiving 20 Gy or higher was greater than 40%. Conflict of interest: G. Prévot has nothing to disclose. Moreover, local, regional or national dedicated boards specialised in immune-related adverse events are also very useful at collecting data and may guide patients towards the best strategies. Tsoutsou PG, Koukourakis MI. Risk Manag. Significant morbidity and mortality can result, and severe pneumonitis attributed to ICB precludes continued therapy. TreaTmenT The patient was started on oseltamivir and intravenous meth-ylprednisolone of 60mg daily and then changed to oral pred-nisone of 40 mg daily which was tapered after 4 weeks. He did not receive any additional treatment at this time. MS and MM collected and performed the correlative blood analyses. The CT scan of March 2018 consistent with pneumonitis was performed on 3/12/18. Right axillary dissection performed in August 2017 revealed involvement of 13 of 31 axillary lymph nodes, the largest measuring 4.5 cm. 14. The symptoms improved on discontinuation of atezolizumab and a course of prednisone. Nivolumab administration was discontinued and corticosteroids were slowly tapered. ICI therapy–related pneumonitis is an uncommon but important complication of ICI therapy, with potential for significant morbidity and mortality. Unfortunately, additional blood samples were not available at the time the patient developed additional symptoms in May/June 2018, nor after the patient’s treatment with infliximab, to investigate changes in more detail. However, a new focus of peripheral consolidation with surrounding GGO was noted in the right lower lobe (white arrow, d) outside of the irradiated lung field. Pneumonitis resulting from radiation and immune checkpoint blockade illustrates characteristic clinical, radiologic and circulating biomarker features. Conflict of interest: M. Delaunay has nothing to disclose. Immunotherapy is bringing new hope to patients, but also a whole new spectrum of toxicities for healthcare practitioners to manage. Circulating biomarker analyses demonstrated increases in CXCR2, IL1ra and IL2ra that coincided with the development of symptomatic pneumonitis. Nishino M, Giobbie-Hurder A, Hatabu H, Ramaiya NH, Hodi FS. Immunotherapy-induced pneumonitis is a rare complication with incidence estimated around 3%. Although it is important to reemphasize that prospective studies such as the PACIFIC trial [5] have demonstrated that the combination of lung directed radiation and ICB is not a high risk approach, further investigations are needed to elucidate the mechanisms underlying any potential interaction and identify potential clinical, radiologic and molecular predictors such as genetics or some underlying susceptibility, such as comorbidities or baseline inflammatory changes in the lung, that could lead to an increased risk of patients developing radiation induced pneumonitis exacerbated by immunotherapy. This information can help guide clinical evaluation and future research investigations into the toxicity of combined radiation immunotherapy approaches. Pneumonitis develops in less than 5% of patients treated with PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor ICB monotherapy. The patient tolerated treatment well, and PET-CT performed in January 2018 before starting ICB revealed no evidence of residual disease or lung injury (scan not shown). Attribution of toxicity also guides the evaluation of data in the clinical trial setting. During the physical exam, your doctor will use a stethoscope to listen carefully to your lungs while you breathe. All samples were tested in duplicate, according to manufacturer’s protocols. The surgical margins were negative. 2e, white arrow). Retrospective studies have found higher rates of disease control in patients who experienced immune-related adverse events [41]. Treatment was delivered using 6- and 10- MegaVolt (MV) photons using Novalis TX (Varian Medical Systems, Palo Alto, CA).

Reassuringly, both retrospective and prospective data suggest that this combination is, in general, well tolerated [5,6,7]. He currently remains asymptomatic with no evidence of recurrent melanoma. 2018;119(10):1200–7. Br J Cancer. 2016;2(12):1607–16. 2d, arrow) which is outside of the radiation treatment field. Data and samples were collected on a DF-HCC institutionally review board approved protocol (05–042). Luke JJ, Lemons JM, Karrison TG, Pitroda SP, Melotek JM, Zha Y, et al. J Immunother Cancer. Finally, the subsequent pattern of lung injury that was observed consisting of waxing and waning consolidations in peripheral and lower lung distributions involving both irradiated and non-irradiated lung areas (distinct from the patterns observed initially) that occurred despite ongoing corticosteroid use indicate a more complex process as compared to pneumonitis related to either radiation or ICB alone, suggesting the possibility of effects from both immune-checkpoint blockade and radiation as an underlying mechanism. The goal of this chapter is to instruct readers on the incidence and clinical manifestations of pneumonitis and to offer guidance in the evaluation and treatment of patients with pneumonitis. The diagnosis of immunotherapy-induced pneumonitis was made after careful exclusion of other pulmonary conditions such as infection and malignancy. Awareness of radiological patterns and clinical manifestations of ICI-ILD are necessary to rapidly diagnose and treat these possible serious events. In addition to ICB, radiation therapy to the lung can also lead to an inflammatory pneumonitis generally treated with a lengthy course of corticosteroids in more severe cases. The How to diagnose ILD associated with ICI treatment? The majority of these changes were located within the edges of the prior radiation field that overlapped the lung as shown in Fig. Furthermore, data are limited regarding the interplay between radiation- and ICB-induced lung injury, and which biomarkers might be associated with toxicity. c, d. On a follow-up CT scan of the chest performed 2 months after A and B, previously noted peripheral consolidative opacities and GGO were mostly resolved, in response to corticosteroid therapy (c).

Jonathan D. Schoenfeld. Oxaliplatin-induced pulmonary interstitial disease is an increasingly recognized entity. When the patient first developed symptoms, the CT findings of curvilinear consolidative opacities and GGO were predominantly localized to the radiation treatment field, suggestive of radiation pneumonitis. It is reassuring that TNFalpha-inhibition, a more established treatment for ICB-induced toxicity, was clinically effective despite the potential contribution of radiation related lung injury in this case. Clinical cancer research : an official journal of the American Association for Cancer Research. Chuzi S, Tavora F, Cruz M, Costa R, Chae YK, Carneiro BA, et al. Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys. Multicenter evaluation of the tolerability of combined treatment with PD-1 and CTLA-4 immune checkpoint inhibitors and palliative radiation therapy. Research blood collection was analyzed from time-points: 1) prior to the initiation of ICB; 2) shortly prior to the initial development of symptoms of pneumonitis; and 3) during the initial steroid taper before symptoms recurred (Fig. Preclinical evidence suggests that targeted radiation has immune stimulating effects, which could potentially increase the effectiveness of ICB, but may also add to toxicity and prompt immune-related adverse events. Manage cookies/Do not sell my data we use in the preference centre. [1, 2] Many cases are relatively mild, and patients can resume ICB therapy following steroid treatment and resolution of symptoms. This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions. However, < 1% of cases are more severe [1], and patients can require prolonged treatment, require hospitalization, and be precluded from additional ICB treatment, even if this therapy is otherwise providing clinical benefit. 2c), with a new focus of peripheral consolidation with surrounding GGO in the right lower lobe (Fig. Sign In to Email Alerts with your Email Address, Management of
