Director's Column - The Total Cancer Care Protocol: Adapting, Advancing and Adding Value by Dr. Tom Sellers

In a recent column on the retirement of Dr. Djeu, I shared the story of her initial "sales pitch" to me to become a Moffitteer. That resulted in a subsequent conversation with Dr. Bill Dalton, who had just returned to Moffitt as CEO/President/Center Director. The year was 2003 and Bill painted a vision of personalized medicine that he described as Total Cancer Care® (TCC). I knew that Moffitt was a young center and going there would mean a perceived step down from the Mayo Clinic, but I was equally convinced that would be temporary and Total Cancer Care would be a game-changer. By any metric that has proven to be true.

Moffitt is special for many reasons, but one that I believe is especially important is that we are not bound to anything other than our mission and core values. We are nimble, willing to take risks and comfortable challenging assumptions and the status quo. If that requires evolution or revolution, we embrace the need for change and move forward with conviction. Today I want to recognize the stages of our TCC evolution, and our next step, with new leaders.

The TCC vision was all about improving the prevention and cure of cancer by generating data and evidence necessary to inform changes in the practice of medicine. The TCC protocol is truly a collaborative venture between patients, clinicians and researchers, changing the way we do translational research. Impressively, since its inception, more than 139,000 patients at Moffitt have provided consent to the protocol, with tissues collected on over 78,000 patients. By facilitating access to these data and tissues through the Health and Research Informatics (HRI) platform and the Collaborative Data Services Core, numerous publications, grants and ongoing studies have been enabled. The TCC protocol is also the foundation for the Oncology Research Information Exchange Network (ORIEN) that now numbers 17 academic partners committed to data sharing and a collective reach to over 50,000 cancer patients per year in the United States.

The early years of the protocol was significantly aided through a formal partnership with Merck. Merck provided funds to support consenting of patients and collection of data and tissues, but also provided molecular profiling (mainly gene expression profiling, but some targeted DNA sequencing) to enable research on disease heterogeneity, risk stratification and new therapeutic targets. Over time, the protocol has been amended to collect other sample types, such as blood samples, bone marrow biopsies and biopsies, but also evolved to include recruitment of patients with cancers beyond those of highest priority to Merck. Recently, M2Gen has facilitated an innovative partnership between ORIEN members and the pharmaceutical industry to create the AVATAR - an integration of more contemporary molecular profiling (whole exome sequencing, RNA sequencing) and rich clinical data on thousands of patients with a wide array of cancer types. Importantly, the industry funding covers the costs of the molecular profiling and data abstraction with all of the data available to Moffitt researchers.

Some of the inspiration behind possible evolution of the TCC protocol was the simple thought experiment: If we were to open the TCC protocol today, would we do things the same way? Brief interviews with key faculty returned the not too surprising answer: no. The AVATAR project is one driver, but so too is the realization that we are missing the opportunity to add great value to the protocol if we don't revisit what biospecimens we collect, how we collect them and when we collect them. Since the details will vary by the patient population and specific research needs, this will take careful planning to fully execute the next chapter.

I want to thank Drs. Scott Gilbert and Dana Rollison for the tremendous service they have provided as co-PIs of the study. They have provided invaluable stewardship of this essential resource. Effective February 1, Dr. Shelley Tworoger, ACD of Population Science, will assume the role of TCC PI. She has a wealth of experience overseeing the biorepository protocol for the Nurses' Health Study and 5 other cohorts at Harvard, which includes over 3.5 million specimens from over 200,000 participants. Massive in complexity and impressively productive scientifically, Dr. Tworoger's insights will be leveraged to ensure the protocol is meeting the needs of our faculty, and ultimately our patients. Dr. Erin Siegel, who has been at Moffitt since 2004 and most recently as the Scientific Director of Health and Research Informatics and Scientific Director of the Collaborative Data Services Core, will now focus her efforts on TCC and ORIEN as the Scientific Director of Total Cancer Care. She will work directly with Dr. Tworoger and other leaders in the institution to develop and implement a strategic vision for TCC that will keep Moffitt at the forefront of translational impact, and serve as a resource to faculty and staff using TCC. A key element moving forward is to meet the existing and emerging research needs at Moffitt through access to internal resources and promoting exciting collaborative ventures, including ORIEN. Dr. Siegel will work to make sure that the TCC protocol facilitates rapid, cutting edge research with increased efficiency that will augment PI-initiated research.

Please congratulate Shelley and Erin for their new roles and thank them for their institutional service. The TCC protocol is the largest resource of its kind, and in conjunction with the HRI and other data platforms, it will be a crucial tool in our arsenal for understanding carcinogenesis at all stages of the cancer continuum. With continued investment, we will ensure that TCC is a relevant and invaluable resource. I hope you look forward to working with Erin and Shelley as they continue to enhance the value of this initiative for our researchers and ultimately the patients that we serve. This is how we will build on our unique opportunities, harness personalized medicine, and contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer!


(NEW) ASCO's Biggest Cancer Advancements of the Year? Ask Dr. Frederick Locke and Dr. Scott Antonia

Clinical trials and research led by Dr. Frederick Locke and Dr. Scott Antonia have been named in the American Society of Clinical Oncology's (ASCO) Clinical Cancer Advances 2018, an annual report highlighting the most impactful clinical cancer research and policy developments over the past year.

The Advance of the Year is CAR T-cell therapy, which is poised to transform the outlook for children and adults with certain otherwise incurable cancers. The report highlights the ZUMA-1 trial, sponsored by Kite Pharma and co-led by Dr. Locke, which led to the FDA approval of Yescarta™ (axicabtagene ciloluecel). Moffitt treated the first patient in the clinical trial and the first patient commercially with this new groundbreaking therapy.

An investigator-initiated trial led by Dr. Antonia is also featured. The PACIFIC trial investigated the use of Imfinzi® (durvalumab), an immunotherapy treatment, for patients with stage III non-small cell lung cancer. The drug is currently approved for the treatment of bladder cancer. The FDA is expected to make a decision on the expanded use of this therapy in the coming weeks. Inclusion in this report emphasizes Moffitt's dedication and commitment to our mission - to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer.

(NEW) Moffitt Study Investigates New Way to Reduce Graft-Versus-Host Disease

Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) remains a major cause of death among stem-cell transplantation patients. Suppressing the immune system to reduce GHVD and ensure antitumor activity of the graft is preserved is crucial to improving the success of blood and marrow transplantation. In a new article published by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Moffitt researchers and collaborators demonstrate that inhibition of Janus kinase 2 (JAK2) significantly decreases GVHD and maintains tumor killing by the donor T cells. The study, authored by Drs. Brian Betts, Elizabeth Sagatys, Catherine Lee, Joseph Pidala and Claudio Anasetti, emphasizes the relevance of JAK2 in GVHD pathogenesis and prevention.

NIH Next Generation Researchers Initiative Policy

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced its policy (NOT-OD-17-101) to invest in next generation researchers and implement Section 2021 of the 21st Century Cures Act. This policy requires NIH institutes and centers (ICs) to prioritize funding for Early Stage and Early Established Investigators (ESIs and EEIs). In order to facilitate the implementation of the policy, the Office of the NIH Director will centrally track and maintain a census of ESIs and EEIs as well as monitor implementation of the policy within NIH ICs to determine the impact on individuals from underrepresented groups. Details on NIH's diversity initiatives and specific IC strategies for responding to the policy will be found on the Division of Extramural Programs website.

According to the Policy, ESIs and EEIs fit the following descriptions:
Early Stage Investigator (ESI) - An ESI is a Program Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI) who has completed their terminal research degree or end of post-graduate clinical training, whichever date is later, within the past 10 years and who has not previously competed successfully as PD/PI for a substantial NIH independent research award. A list of NIH grants that a PD/PI can hold and still be considered an ESI can be found at here. ESIs are encouraged to enter the date of their terminal research degree or the end date of their post-graduate clinical training in their eRA Commons profile to ensure their correct identification.

Under the NGRI policy, meritorious R01-equivalent applications with ESI PD/PIs will be prioritized for funding. ICs will put this prioritization into effect starting in fiscal year (FY) 2017. The goal for FY 2017 will be to fund approximately 200 more ESI awards than in FY 2016. By providing funding priority for ESIs, NIH intends to encourage funding applications that involve researchers earlier in their career. An NIH R01-equivalent research grant application with more than one PD/PI (MPI) will be prioritized for funding only if all MPIs have ESI status.

Early Established Investigator (EEI) - An EEI is a PD/PI who is within 10 years of receiving their first substantial, independent competing NIH R01-equivalent research award as an ESI. A meritorious application with a designated PD/PI EEI may be prioritized for funding if:
• The EEI lost or is at risk for losing all NIH research support if not funded by competing awards this year, OR
• The EEI is supported by only one active award.

NIH will identify EEIs in their eRA Commons profile by the end of the month. An NIH grant application with more than one PD/PI (MPI) will be prioritized for funding only if all MPIs have EEI status and meet prioritization criteria.

Please contact the Office of Sponsored Research, x6159, if you have any questions.
