The majority of adverse reactions were Grade 1 or 21
ADVERSE REACTIONS OCCURRING IN ≥10% OF PATIENTS RECEIVING TAGRISSO IN ADAURA*
In addition, clinically relevant adverse reactions in ADAURA that occurred in <10% of patients receiving TAGRISSO were alopecia (6%), epistaxis (6%), interstitial lung disease (3%), palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia syndrome (1.8%), keratitis (0.6%), QTc interval prolongation (0.6%), and erythema multiforme (0.3%). QTc interval prolongation represents the incidence of patients who had a QTcF
prolongation >500 msec.
In ADAURA, the discontinuation rate due to adverse reactions was 11% with TAGRISSO.***
Adverse reactions leading to dose reductions occurred in 9% of patients on TAGRISSO1†††
The majority of laboratory abnormalities were Grade 1 or 21
LABORATORY ABNORMALITIES WORSENING FROM BASELINE IN ≥20% OF PATIENTS IN ADAURA
In addition, the laboratory abnormality in ADAURA that occurred in <20% of patients receiving TAGRISSO was increased blood creatinine (10%).
*NCI CTCAE v4.0.
†Based on the number of patients with available follow-up laboratory data.
For the treatment of metastatic EGFRm NSCLC
The majority of TAGRISSO adverse reactions were Grade 1 or 21
ADVERSE REACTIONS OCCURRING IN ≥10% OF PATIENTS ON TAGRISSO IN FLAURA TRIAL1*
Adverse reaction data are based on median duration of therapy of 16.2 months for first-line TAGRISSO and 11.5 months for erlotinib/gefitinib.2
At 3 years, nearly 30% of patients were still being treated with TAGRISSO vs erlotinib/gefitinib3‡‡RTI, respiratory tract infection. *NCI CTCAE v4.0. †One Grade 5 (fatal) event was reported (diarrhea) for EGFR-TKI comparator. ‡Includes stomatitis and mouth ulceration. §Includes rash, rash generalized, rash erythematous, rash macular, rash maculopapular, rash papular, rash pustular, rash pruritic, rash vesicular, rash follicular, erythema, folliculitis, acne, dermatitis, dermatitis acneiform, drug eruption, skin erosion, pustule. ||Includes dry skin, skin fissures, xerosis, eczema, xeroderma. ¶Includes nail bed disorder, nail bed inflammation, nail bed infection, nail discoloration, nail pigmentation, nail disorder, nail toxicity, nail dystrophy, nail infection, nail ridging, onychalgia, onychoclasis, onycholysis, onychomadesis, onychomalacia, paronychia. #Includes pruritus, pruritus generalized, eyelid pruritus. **Includes fatigue, asthenia. ††Includes prolonged QT interval reported as adverse reaction. ‡‡In the FLAURA trial, treatment beyond the point of disease progression was allowed as long as there was continued clinical benefit, as judged by the investigator.2

There are no contraindications for TAGRISSO
Interstitial lung disease (ILD)/pneumonitis occurred in 3.7% of the 1479 TAGRISSO-treated patients; 0.3% of cases were fatal. Withhold TAGRISSO and promptly investigate for ILD in patients who present with worsening of respiratory symptoms which may be indicative of ILD (eg, dyspnea, cough and fever). Permanently discontinue TAGRISSO if ILD is confirmed
Heart rate-corrected QT (QTc) interval prolongation occurred in TAGRISSO-treated patients. Of the 1479 TAGRISSO-treated patients in clinical trials, 0.8% were found to have a QTc >500 msec, and 3.1% of patients had an increase from baseline QTc >60 msec. No QTc-related arrhythmias were reported. Conduct periodic monitoring with ECGs and electrolytes in patients with congenital long QTc syndrome, congestive heart failure, electrolyte abnormalities, or those who are taking medications known to prolong the QTc interval. Permanently discontinue TAGRISSO in patients who develop QTc interval prolongation with signs/symptoms of life-threatening arrhythmia
Cardiomyopathy occurred in 3% of the 1479 TAGRISSO-treated patients; 0.1% of cardiomyopathy cases were fatal. A decline in left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ≥10% from baseline and to <50% LVEF occurred in 3.2% of 1233 patients who had baseline and at least one follow-up LVEF assessment. In the ADAURA study, 1.5% (5/325) of TAGRISSO-treated patients experienced LVEF decreases ≥10% from baseline and a drop to <50%. Conduct cardiac monitoring, including assessment of LVEF at baseline and during treatment, in patients with cardiac risk factors. Assess LVEF in patients who develop relevant cardiac signs or symptoms during treatment. For symptomatic congestive heart failure, permanently discontinue TAGRISSO
Keratitis was reported in 0.7% of 1479 patients treated with TAGRISSO in clinical trials. Promptly refer patients with signs and symptoms suggestive of keratitis (such as eye inflammation, lacrimation, light sensitivity, blurred vision, eye pain and/or red eye) to an ophthalmologist
Postmarketing cases consistent with Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and erythema multiforme major (EMM) have been reported in patients receiving TAGRISSO. Withhold TAGRISSO if SJS or EMM is suspected and permanently discontinue if confirmed
Postmarketing cases of cutaneous vasculitis including leukocytoclastic vasculitis, urticarial vasculitis, and IgA vasculitis have been reported in patients receiving TAGRISSO. Withhold TAGRISSO if cutaneous vasculitis is suspected, evaluate for systemic involvement, and consider dermatology consultation. If no other etiology can be identified, consider permanent discontinuation of TAGRISSO based on severity
Verify pregnancy status of females of reproductive potential prior to initiating TAGRISSO. Advise pregnant women of the potential risk to a fetus. Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with TAGRISSO and for 6 weeks after the final dose. Advise males with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception for 4 months after the final dose
Most common (≥20%) adverse reactions, including laboratory abnormalities, were leukopenia, lymphopenia, thrombocytopenia, diarrhea, anemia, rash, musculoskeletal pain, nail toxicity, neutropenia, dry skin, stomatitis, fatigue, and cough
TAGRISSO is indicated as adjuvant therapy after tumor resection in adult patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors have epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon 19 deletions or exon 21 L858R mutations, as detected by an FDA-approved test
TAGRISSO is indicated for the first-line treatment of adult patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors have epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon 19 deletions or exon 21 L858R mutations, as detected by an FDA-approved test
TAGRISSO is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with metastatic EGFR T790M mutation-positive NSCLC, as detected by an FDA-approved test, whose disease has progressed on or after EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) therapy
