9 eastern cooperative oncology group CTSU Participation 2004-2009 ECOG Participation in CTSU Menu Studies ECOG studies on the CTSU menu 31 CTSU studies “endorsed” by ECOG 44 CTSU patients accrued to ECOG studies 11,417 ECOG patients accrued to CTSU studies 6,618 ECOG patients accrued to other intergroup studies1,714 8

10 eastern cooperative oncology group Major Accomplishments  Six studies led to new standard of care and FDA indications  Bevacizumab in metastatic colon (E3200), lung (E4599), breast (E2100)  Rituximab in indolent (E1496) and aggressive lymphoma (E4494)  Thalidomide in multiple myeloma (E1A00)  Two phase III adjuvant trials:  E5103 – bevacizumab + chemotherapy in HER2- negative breast cancer  E1505 – bevacizumab + chemotherapy in stage IB – IIIA NSCLC 9

11 eastern cooperative oncology group Major Accomplishments  Head and Neck cancer: defined prognostic and predictive roles of p53 mutations and HPV+  AML: established superiority of high dose daunorubicin induction  Adult ALL: defined new adverse cytogenetic parameters  Breast cancer: described VEGF SNPs related to response and toxicity; and potential new therapeutic targets (eg, GRB-7)  Multiple Myeloma: established superiority of low dose dexamethasone plus lenalidomide in induction therapy 10

Komen Foundation1 American Cancer Society1 Lymphoma Research Foundation1 Leukemia and Lymphoma Society2 13

15 eastern cooperative oncology group Major Accomplishments  Key components of our Translational Science effort  Laboratory Science and Pathology Committee  PCO-RL and other core laboratories  Developmental Therapeutics Committee  Pharmacogenetics subcommittee studies  Leukemia Laboratory Committee and Leukemia Translational Research Laboratory  Translational Science Team  IT infrastructure 15 14

16 eastern cooperative oncology group Major Accomplishments  Established scientific infrastructure to perform large-scale biomarker driven studies  Launched two large marker-driven phase III studies  E5202 – stage II colon cancer (MSI; 18q LOH)  TAILORx (PACCT-1) – node negative breast cancer (Oncotype-DX) 16 15

17 eastern cooperative oncology group E5202 Trial Schema Low-Risk Patients MSS or MSI-L with retention of 18q alleles MSI-H Arm A: mFOLFOX6 q2w × 12 Arm B: mFOLFOX6 + bevacizumab* q2w × 12 Arm C: Observation only High-Risk Patients MSS/18q LOH or MSI-L/18q LOH are RANDOMIZED MSI-L = low-level microsatellite instability MSI-H = high-level microsatellite instability *bevacizumab continued for an additional 6 months Stratify: Disease stage (IIA or IIB) Microsatellite stability (stable vs MSI) 18q LOH 16

18 eastern cooperative oncology group Integral Biomarker Specimen Flow—E5202 Site registers patient, ships 2 blocks (1 tumor, 1 normal) PCO-RL * Laboratory QC and Processing MDACC* tests for 18qLOH, MSI Surgery ECOG Rando Site registers patient to Treatment 60 days max60 days max60 days max60 days max Fax results - avg 4 working days 5 working days * CAP-accredited lab for CLIA-88 compliance 17

19 eastern cooperative oncology group General Themes for the Future  Study “targeted” therapies with the ultimate goal of developing new potentially curative strategies  Define new predictive and prognostic factors which lead to hypothesis driven clinical trials  Continue to develop both laboratory-based and IT infrastructure  Build upon new data from existing pivotal studies undergoing completion and analysis 19
