EGF816 and Trametinib in Patients With Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Harboring Activating EGFR Mutations


Are you eligible to participate in this study?

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

  • Conditions: Bronchial Neoplasm
  • Age: Between 18 - 99 Years
  • Gender: Male or Female

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Written informed consent must have been obtained prior to any screening procedures.
  2. Patients (male or female) 18 years of age.
  3. Histologically documented, locally advanced or recurrent (stage IIIB who are not eligible for combined modality treatment) or metastatic (stage IV) non-small cell lung cancer.
  4. Presence of at least one measurable lesion according to RECIST v.1.1.
  5. ECOG performance status 2
  6. Patients must have NSCLC harbouring EGFR p.L858R or EGFR del19 as assessed by local testing.
  7. Patients must be EGFR TKI treatment nave (prior chemotherapy treatment is allowed) or must have progressed while on continuous treatment with a first- or second-generation EGFR TKI (EGFR p.T790M-negative or -positive) or must have progressed while on continuous treatment with osimertinib (EGFR p.T790M-negative or -positive)
  8. In patients who have received no prior EGFR TKI treatment, an archival biopsy sample, defined as a sample being obtained prior to any anti-cancer treatment is mandatory. If an archival biopsy fulfilling this criterion is not available, patients must be suitable and willing to undergo baseline biopsy according to the local institution's guidelines (newly obtained biopsy).
  9. In patients who have received prior EGFR TKI treatment, an archival biopsy sample, defined as a sample being obtained after or during progression upon the last anti-cancer treatment is mandatory. No consecutive line of treatment must have been given after collection of the rebiopsy and inclusion into this trial. If an archival rebiopsy fulfilling these criteria is not available, patients must be suitable and willing to undergo baseline biopsy according to the local institution's guidelines (newly obtained biopsy).
  10. In patients who have received prior EGFR TKI treatment, EGFRp.T790M mutation status must have been assessed by local testing in the tumour sample fulfilling the requirements of inclusion criterion 9.
  11. Patients who have received prior osimertinib treatment, may only be eligible if no standard treatment approach outside this trial is available or feasible (e.g. chemotherapy)
  12. Patients who have progressed while on continuous treatment with a first- or second-generation EGFR inhibitor and whose tumour has been tested EGFR p.T790M-negative may only be eligible if no standard treatment approach outside this trial is available or feasible (e.g. chemotherapy).
  13. In patients who have received prior EGFR TKI treatment, progression of disease according to RECIST v1.1 while on continuous treatment with an EGFR TKI (e.g. erlotinib, gefitinib, afatinib or osimertinib) must be documented.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. History of allergic reactions or hypersensitivity to one of the study drugs or to any component of the study drugs
  2. Prior treatment with any investigational agent known to inhibit EGFR (mutant or wild-type)
  3. Prior treatment with any agent known to inhibit MEK/ERK or other mediators of RAS pathway.
  4. Patients with high level MET amplification in the archival or newly obtained biopsy sample as determined by local testing. High-level MET amplification is defined as: a) a MET/CEN7 ratio 2.0 and/or b) an average MET gene copy number per cell of 6.0 [modified Schildhaus et al., 2015].
  5. Patients with EGFR mutations other than EGFR del19, p.L858R or p.T790M.
  6. Patients with brain metastases. However, if radiation therapy and/or surgery has been completed at least 4 weeks prior to screening for the trial and evaluation by CT (with contrast enhancement) or MRI at study baseline demonstrates the disease to be stable and if the patient remains asymptomatic and off steroids, then patients with brain metastases may be enrolled.
  7. Patients with presence or history of carcinomatous meningitis.
  8. Any acute or chronic medical, mental or psychological condition, which in the opinion of the investigator would not permit the patient to participate or complete the study or understand the patient information
  9. History of hepatitis B (HBV) or hepatitis C (HCV) or positive result in mandatory testing for acute or chronic hepatitis B or hepatitis C
  10. Known HIV infection or history of HIV infection independent from the cellular immune status
  11. Patients who receive any continuous, long term immunosuppressive treatment, including long term treatment with steroids at immunosuppressive doses at the time of study entry
  12. Patients who underwent bone marrow or solid organ transplantation, including patients who do not receive any immunosuppressive treatment.
  13. Presence or history of any other primary malignancy other than NSCLC within 5 years prior to enrolment into the trial. Except from this: Adequately treated basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin or any adequately treated in situ carcinoma
  14. Any of the following within 6 months prior to first trial drug administration: Myocardial infarction (NSTEMI or STEMI), severe/unstable angina pectoris, symptomatic congestive heart failure (> NYHA II), uncontrolled hypertension, coronary/peripheral artery bypass graft, cerebrovascular accident or transient ischemic attack, atrial fibrillation of CTCAE Grade 2, ongoing cardiac dysrhythmias of CTCAE Grade 2, including corrected QTcF prolongation of > 480 ms,
  15. Aortic valve stenosis with mean gradient 25 mmHg and aortic valve area of 1.5 cm2
  16. Any other cardiac valve abnormality of more than mild degree/stage
  17. Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of < 50 %
  18. History of congenital long QT-syndrome or Torsades de Pointes
  19. History of retinal vein occlusion (RVO) or retinal pigment epithelial detachment (RPED)
  20. Unable or unwilling to swallow tablets or capsules
  21. Patients with impaired gastrointestinal function or gastrointestinal disease that may significantly alter the absorption of EGF816 (e.g., ulcerative diseases, uncontrolled nausea, vomiting diarrhoea, or malabsorption syndromes
  22. Patients have received anticancer treatment within the following time frames prior to the first dose of study treatment:
  23. Conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy: 4 weeks ( 6 weeks for nitrosoureas, mitomycin-C and suramin)
