2N-13-2: A Randomized, Phase 3 Study of Ganetespib in Combination with Docetaxel versus Docetaxel Alone in Patients with Advanced Non-Small-Cell Lung Adenocarcinoma
This is an open-label, multicenter, randomized Phase 3 study of patients with Stage IIIB/IV NSCLC of adenocarcinoma histology.Primary Objective is to evaluate and compare overall survival (OS) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with adenocarcinoma histology treated with ganetespib in combination with docetaxel versus docetaxel alone.Ganetespib is a novel synthetic small molecule that binds to the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) pocket in the N-terminus of Hsp90 and demonstrates significant activity for down-regulating Hsp90 client protein levels. This ability to impact a broad array of important oncogenes and cell signaling kinases is reflected in ganetespibs activity across a wide variety of tumor cell types.Patients will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive either ganetespib in combination with docetaxel or docetaxel alone. The study will enroll approximately 500 patients, 12 from USC, over a planned 12-month period, and patients will be randomized into one of two treatment arms.
A Phase 1/2, Open-Label, Safety, Pharmacokinetic and Preliminary Efficacy Study of Oral Rociletinib in Patients With Previously Treated Mutant EGFR Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
Lung cancer remains the most common cancer worldwide with non-small cell lung cancer
accounting for 85% of cases. Cytotoxic chemotherapy has been the mainstay of patients with
NSCLC; however, survival rates remain low and toxicity is significant. Molecularly targeted
therapies have proven to be superior to chemotherapy for NSCLC patients whose tumors have
mutations in EGFR. Recent studies have established tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) as the
gold standard for treating EGFR-mutation-positive NCSLC. However, patients on TKIs
eventually progress, and in approximately 50% of cases, progression is due to development of
an additional mutation called T790M. There are currently no approved therapies for patients
who progress on TKIs. Rociletinib may provide an effective therapy for a patient population
with few alternative treatment options. Nonclinical data demonstrate that rociletinib
inhibits T790M. It is anticipated that rociletinib may promote cell death in tumor cells
with the T790M mutation, thus providing possible therapeutic benefit in patients who have
developed T790M-mediated resistance to first generation TKIs.
This is a two-part, open-label study of oral rociletinib administered daily in previously
treated NSCLC patients who have documented evidence of an activating mutation in the EGFR
gene and have failed treatment with an EGFR inhibitor such as erlotinib, gefitinib or
This study will include 2 parts:
Phase 1 (completed enrolment): Dose-escalation Period with 21-day cycles; optional Treatment
Extension Period starting on Day 22
Phase 2 (currently enrolling): Evaluation of activity and safety in patients with the T790M
EGFR mutation who have:
Cohort A - Progressed on EGFR directed therapy (irrespective of the number and order of
previous lines of NSCLC therapy) or Cohort B - Progression on the first single agent EGFR
directed therapy received and also had no more than one previous line of chemotherapy
A Randomized Phase II Trial of Cytotoxic Chemotherapy With or Without Epigenetic Priming in Patients With Advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
I. Percentage of patients progression-free at 6 months from time of randomization.
I. Progression-free survival (PFS). II. Overall Survival (OS).
OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 3 treatment arms.
ARM A: Patients receive azacitidine subcutaneously (SC) on days 1-6 and 8-10 and entinostat
orally (PO) on days 3 and 10. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 2 courses in the absence
of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with stable or progressive disease
receive chemotherapy of the treating oncologist's choice comprising irinotecan hydrochloride
intravenously (IV) on day 1, docetaxel IV on day 1, pemetrexed disodium IV on day 1, or
gemcitabine hydrochloride IV on days 1 and 8. Treatment repeats every 21 days in the absence
of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
ARM B: Patients receive azacitidine PO on days 1-21 and entinostat PO on days 3 and 10.
Treatment repeats every 28 days for 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or
unacceptable toxicity. Patients with stable or progressive disease receive chemotherapy of
the treating oncologist's choice as in Arm A.
ARM C: Patients receive chemotherapy of the treating oncologist's choice as in Arm A.
After completion of treatment, patients are followed up every 3-6 months for 24 months and
then yearly thereafter.
