This is a prospective, open-label, multi-cohort, non-randomized, multicenter phase 2 study evaluating LN-145 in patients with metastatic NSCLC.

Official Title

A Phase 2 Multicenter Study of Autologous Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes (LN-145) in Patients With Metastatic Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer


LN-145 is a ready-to-infuse, autologous TIL therapy that utilizes an autologous TIL manufacturing process, as originally developed by the NCI and further optimized by Iovance for the treatment of patients with metastatic NSCLC. The cell transfer therapy used in this study involves patients receiving an NMA lymphocyte depleting preparative regimen, followed by infusion of autologous TIL, then finally followed by the administration of IL-2.

You CAN'T join if...

  • Patients who have known oncogene driver mutations (eg, EGFR, ALK, ROS) which are sensitive to targeted therapies.
  • Patients who have symptomatic and/or untreated brain metastases.
  • Patients who have organ allograft or prior cell transfer within the past 20 years.
  • Patients who are on systemic steroid therapy ≥ 10 mg/day of prednisone or other steroid equivalent. Patients receiving steroids as replacement therapy for adrenocortical insufficiency at ≤ 10 mg/day of prednisone or other steroid equivalent may be eligible.
