Are you eligible to participate in this study?

You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:

  • Conditions: Stage IB Lung Non-Small Cell Carcinoma AJCC v7 | Stage IIIA Lung Non-Small Cell Cancer AJCC v7 | Stage IIB Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma AJCC v7 | Stage II Lung Non-Small Cell Cancer AJCC v7 | Stage II Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer AJCC v7 | Stage IB Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma AJCC v7 | Stage IIB Lung Non-Small Cell Carcinoma AJCC v7 | Stage IIA Lung Non-Small Cell Carcinoma AJCC v7 | EGFR Exon 19 Deletion Mutation | Stage IIIA Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer AJCC v7 | Stage IIA Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma AJCC v7 | EGFR NP_005219.2:p.L858R | ALK Gene Rearrangement
  • Age: Between 18 - 100 Years
  • Gender: Male or Female

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Previously registered to A151216, with the result of lung cancer harboring an EGFR exon 19 deletion or L858R mutation; the testing must have been performed by one of the following criteria:
    1. Patient registered to A151216 and the assessment performed centrally by the protocol-specified laboratory
    2. By a local Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certified laboratory; the report must indicate the result as well as the CLIA number of the laboratory that performed the assay; these patients will also have been registered to A151216, but can be enrolled on A081105 regardless of the central lab results
  • Patients with known resistant mutations in the EGFR tyrosine-kinase (TK) domain (T790M) are not eligible
  • Patients that are both EGFR mutant and anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangements will be registered to A081105
  • Completely resected stage IB (>= 4 cm), II or IIIA non-squamous NSCLC with negative margins; patients may not have received neoadjuvant therapy (chemo- or radio-therapy) for this lung cancer
  • Complete recovery from surgery and standard post-operative therapy (if required); patients must be completely recovered from surgery at the time of randomization; the minimum time requirement between date of surgery and randomization must be at least 28 days, the maximum time requirement between surgery and randomization must be 90 days if no adjuvant chemotherapy was administered, 240 days if adjuvant chemotherapy was administered, and 300 days if adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation therapy was administered
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0-1
  • No locally advanced or metastatic cancer requiring systemic therapy within 5 years prior to registration; no secondary primary lung cancer diagnosed concurrently or within 2 years prior to registration
  • Non-pregnant and non-lactating
  • No history of cornea abnormalities
  • Granulocytes >= 1,500/ul
  • Platelets >= 100,000/ul
  • Total bilirubin =< 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN)
  • Serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT) =< 1.5 x ULN
  • Serum creatinine =< 1.5 x ULN

Recruitment Status: Open
