SHERLOC: A Phase 2 Study of MM-121 in Combination With Docetaxel Versus Docetaxel Alone in Patients With Heregulin Positive, Locally Advanced or Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Description

Brief Summary
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the combination of MM-121 plus docetaxel is more effective than docetaxel alone in regards to PFS in patients with heregulin-positive NSCLC.


Detailed Description
This study is a randomized, open-label, international, multi-center, phase 2 study in patients with Heregulin-positive NSCLC histologically classified as adenocarcinoma that have progressed following no more than two systemic therapies for locally advanced or metastatic disease, one of which must have been a platinum containing regimen. All patients will initially be screened for heregulin status. Eligible patients will be randomized to receive MM-121 in combination with docetaxel versus docetaxel alone.

Phase

Phase 2 - takes the treatment one step further, assessing the activity of a particular therapy in a disease, often building upon leads from the Phase I trial. While patients are generally required to be previously untreated, participation in a Phase II trial doesn't usually preclude the patient from getting the standard treatment after they've received the investigational agent. At best they are allowed to get a new drug they wouldn't be able to get otherwise that may turn out to be better for their disease.

Inclusion and Exclusion Criteria

  • Patients with a diagnosis of cytologically or histologically documented adenocarcinoma of the lung with either metastatic disease (stage IV), Stage IIIB or Stage IIIC disease not amenable to surgery with curative intent
  • Not received more than 2 prior systemic therapies
  • one of which must have been a platinum based regimen
  • for primary or recurrent disease
  • Tissue submitted for HRG-biomarker testing
  • ECOG performance status (PS) of 0 or 1

  • Known ALK mutation
  • Presence of exon 19 deletion or exon 21 (L858R) substitution of the EGFR gene
  • Received >2 prior systemic anti-cancer drug regimen for locally advanced disease
  • Prior treatment with an anti-ErbB3 antibody
  • CTCAE grade 3 or higher peripheral neuropathy
  • Symptomatic CNS metastases or CNS metastases requiring steroids
  • Any other active malignancy requiring systemic therapy
  • Clinically significant cardiac disease
