Abstract

Background: Immune checkpoints inhibitors have transformed the prognosis of advanced melanoma but are associated with immune-related adverse events (irAEs). We evaluated the incidence, risk factors and causes of acute kidney injury (AKI) in a monocentric real-life cohort of patients treated with anti-programmed death receptor-1 (anti-PD1) antibodies for advanced melanoma. Methods: Retrospective collection of medical charts and comprehensive analysis of lab results from patients treated with nivolumab or pembrolizumab for advanced melanoma between 2014 and 2018 was carried out. AKI was defined by Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes criteria, and causes were determined by chart review. Overall survival, survival without AKI and impact of AKI on survival were analysed. Risk factors for death and for AKI were identified. Results: Two hundred and thirty-nine patients were included. Forty-one (17%) had at least one episode of AKI. Independent risk factors for AKI were treatment with renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASi), pre-existing chronic kidney disease (CKD) and cumulated doses of anti-PD1. The main cause of AKI was prerenal, and only eight patients (3.3%) developed acute interstitial nephritis; 8% of patients developed CKD. The median overall survival was 13.4 months and was not affected by AKI. In multivariate analysis, the overall mortality was lower in overweight and obese patients and higher in patients treated with proton-pump inhibitors (PPI) or corticosteroids. Conclusions: AKI is common in patients treated with anti-PD1 for advanced melanoma but is mostly prerenal and favoured by the use of RAASi; renal irAE is rare. PPI and corticosteroids were associated with poor survival in this population, while overweight/obesity was protective.
