Description

Summary

This phase II Lung-MAP treatment trial test the combination of targeted drugs (capmatinib, osimertinib, and/or ramucirumab) in treating patients with non-small cell lung cancer that may have spread from where it first started to nearby tissue, lymph nodes, or distant parts of the body (advanced) and that has EGFR and MET gene changes. Capmatinib and osimertinib are in a class of medications called kinase inhibitors. They work by blocking the action of the abnormal protein that signals cancer cells to multiply. This helps stop or slow the spread of cancer cells and may help shrink tumors. Ramucirumab is a monoclonal antibody that may prevent the growth of new blood vessels that tumors need to grow. Giving capmatinib, osimertinib, and/or ramucirumab and targeting abnormal gene changes in tumor cells may be effective in shrinking or stabilizing advanced non-small cell lung cancer.

Official Title

S1900G A Randomized Phase II Study of INC280 (Capmatinib) Plus Osimertinib With or Without Ramucirumab in Participants With EGFR-Mutant, MET-Amplified Stage IV or Recurrent Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (Lung-MAP Sub-Study)

Detailed Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: I. To compare investigator-assessed progression-free survival (IA-PFS) between participants with EGFR mutated, MET amplified non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) randomized to INC280 (capmatinib) and osimertinib with or without ramucirumab. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate if the combination of INC280 (capmatinib), osimertinib and ramucirumab or INC280 (capmatinib) and osimertinib during the first cycle of treatment has an acceptable toxicity rate. II. To evaluate the freque... more

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: I. To compare investigator-assessed progression-free survival (IA-PFS) between participants with EGFR mutated, MET amplified non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) randomized to INC280 (capmatinib) and osimertinib with or without ramucirumab. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate if the combination of INC280 (capmatinib), osimertinib and ramucirumab or INC280 (capmatinib) and osimertinib during the first cycle of treatment has an acceptable toxicity rate. II. To evaluate the frequency and severity of toxicities within the arms. III. To compare IA-PFS between the arms, in the subset of participants with centrally-confirmed MET amplification in tissue. IV. To compare IA-PFS between the arms, in the subset of participants with centrally-confirmed MET amplification based on circulating tumor deoxyribonucleic acid (ctDNA). V. To compare IA-PFS between the randomized arms in the subsets of participants with and without history of brain metastases. VI. To compare the objective response rate (ORR) (confirmed and unconfirmed, complete and partial) between the arms among participants with measurable disease at baseline. VII. To compare overall survival between the arms. VIII. To compare IA-PFS between the randomized arms in the subsets of patients who have received only 1 prior line of therapy and those who have received 2 or more prior lines of therapy. IX. To evaluate duration of response among responders within each arm. TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE OBJECTIVES: I. To collect, process, and bank cell-free deoxyribonucleic acid (ctDNA) prior to treatment (Cycle 1 Day 1), Cycle 1 Day 15, Cycle 3 Day 1, and first progression for future development of a proposal to evaluate comprehensive next-generation sequencing of circulating tumor deoxyribonucleic acid (ctDNA). II. To establish a tissue/blood repository from participants with refractory non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 arms. ARM A: Patients receive capmatinib orally (PO), osimertinib PO, and ramucirumab intravenously (IV) on study. Patients also undergo computed tomography (CT) scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and collection of blood samples throughout the trial. ARM B: Patients receive capmatinib PO and osimertinib PO on study. Patients also undergo CT scan or MRI and collection of blood samples throughout the trial.

Inclusion Criteria: Patients must meet all SCREENING/PRE-SCREENING and SUB-STUDY REGISTRATION COMMON ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA as specified in S1400: Phase II/III Biomarker-Driven Master Protocol for Previously Treated Squamous Cell Lung Cancer (Lung-Map) Participants must have been assigned to S1900G by the Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG) Statistics and Data Management Center (SDMC). Assignment to S1900G is determined by the LUNGMAP protocol Participants must have documentation of NSCLC with a sensitizing EGFR mutation and have radiologically or clinically progressed (in the opinion of the treating physician) on osimertinib, alone or in combination with other agent(s), as their most recent line of therapy. Any number of prior lines of therapy is allowed Participants must have a MET amplification determined by tissue-based or blood-based (circulating tumor DNA [ctDNA]) next generation sequencing (NGS) assay. MET amplifications may have been determined based on tissue submitted for testing by Foundation Medicine Inc (FMI) through the LUNGMAP screening protocol or using test results completed outside of the study. Tissue or blood must be obtained after disease progression on osimertinib (alone or in combination with another agent[s]). The testing must be done within a laboratory with Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA), International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/Independent Ethics Committee (IEC), College of American Pathologists (CAP), or similar certification Note: Participants previously tested for and determined to have MET amplified NSCLC, at the time of progression on osimertinib, outside of LUNGMAP, must also submit tissue for central FMI testing on the LUNGMAP screening protocol, if available Participants must have either measurable disease or non-measurable disease documented by CT or MRI. The CT from a combined PET/CT may be used to document only non-measurable disease unless it is of diagnostic quality.

Board Certified Medical Oncologist and Hematologist, Delshad Ahmad, MD, is dedicated to providing personalized cancer care for his patients and their families. He received his medical degree from Damascus University in Syria, where he also attended a residency program in internal medicine. Once in the United States, he completed a residency program in internal medicine at the Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Michigan. He then went on to complete a fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan. Currently, Dr. Ahmad is the Director of Thoracic Oncology at Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center (LCCC).

In his younger years, Dr. Ahmad excelled in sciences and coupled with his desire to help people and encouragement from his family he decided to pursue a medical degree while at university. During rotations in his residency program, he was drawn to the specialty of oncology (cancer) and hematology (blood diseases). “Oncology/Hematology offered me the greatest opportunity to positively affect patient’s lives,” states Dr. Ahmad. “It is a field that is in constant change, with new protocols and treatments always on the forefront of study. I am a constant learner and knew that this specialty of medicine would always challenge me.” The specialty of oncology/hematology was personal as well for Dr. Ahmad. While in medical school and residency, a close cousin was battling cancer and he became very involved with her treatment and care.

With regard to his approach to patient care, Dr. Ahmad strives to provide patients with all the options, possibilities and treatments with regard to treating their disease. “Every patient is unique and every treatment is unique,” states Dr. Ahmad. “I want to understand my patients' goals, provide them with the information they need to accomplish those and partner with them in developing their treatment plan. I am with them all along their journey toward health.”

Dr. Ahmad sees patients in Rancho Mirage, La Quinta and Yucca Valley.
