"This study looks at experimental immunotherapy combination: necitumumab and osimertinib in treating Stage IV or Recurrent lung cancer"
Age: 18 to 100 years old
Healthy Volunteers: No
Keywords: lung, lung cancer, recurrent lung cancer, Stage IV lung cancer
Type: Other study, Phase 1
This study looks at the side effects and best dose of the experimental immunotherapy combination: necitumumab and osimertinib in treating patients with lung cancer that is stage IV or has come back (recurrent) and who have progressed on a previous EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Monoclonal antibodies, such as necitumumab, may block tumor growth in different ways by targeting certain cells. EGFR inhibitor AZD9291 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving necitumumab with EGFR inhibitor AZD9291(osimertinib) may be a better treatment for EGFR-mutant non-small cell lung cancer.

Who can participate

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with stage IV or recurrent/metastatic histologically confirmed non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)

  • NSCLC must harbor at least one of the following EGFR activating mutations: Exon 21 L858R, Exon 19 deletion, Exon 18 G719X, Exon 21 L861Q

  • Progressive disease on at least one prior EGFR-TKI (previous treatment with 3rd generation EGFR-TKI including AZD9291 allowed for dose escalation only)

  • Adequate archival tissue from a biopsy performed after progression of disease on previous EGFR-TKI or willing to consent for a fresh tumor biopsy (mandatory for dose expansion cohort only; optional for dose escalation)

  • For the dose expansion portion ONLY, patient must: 1) have progression of disease with erlotinib, gefitinib or afatinib as last previous systemic treatment, 2) tumors must be EGFR-T790M negative confirmed by central testing prior to treatment (If EGFR-T790M status is unknown patients may consent for trial for biopsy and testing for EGFR T790M will be performed as part of initial biopsy for trial; patients who test positive for EGFR T790M by central testing will be ineligible for the dose expansion), 3) be treatment naive to 3rd generation EGFR-TKI (EGFR inhibitor CO-1686 [CO-1686] and AZD9291) and EGFR monoclonal antibodies

  • Patients must have measurable disease by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1, defined as at least one lesion that can be accurately measured in at least one dimension >= 10 mm (>= 1 cm) by computed tomography (CT) imaging or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) within 42 days prior to registration; the CT from a combined positron emission tomography (PET)/CT may be used only if it is of diagnostic; laboratory parameters are not acceptable as the only evidence of disease

  • Any number of prior therapies is allowed

  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status =< 1

  • Patients must have the ability to swallow tablets

  • Life expectancy of greater 3 months

  • Absolute neutrophil count >= 1,500/mcL

  • Platelets >= 100,000/mcL

  • Total bilirubin =< 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) (patients with Gilbert's syndrome may have serum bilirubin > 1.5 ULN)

  • Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) (serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase [SGOT])/alanine aminotransferase (ALT) (serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase [SGPT]) =< 3.0 x institutional upper limit of normal

  • Creatinine within =< within 1.5 x ULN OR

  • Creatinine clearance >= 50 mL/min

  • Women of child-bearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception using one of the methods listed below prior to study entry, for the duration of study participation, and for 3 months for women and 6 months for men following the date of the last dose of AZD9291 and/or necitumumab:

  • Total abstinence from sexual intercourse (minimum one complete menstrual cycle prior to study drug administration)

  • Vasectomized male subject or vasectomized partner of female subjects

  • Hormonal contraceptives (oral, parenteral, transdermal or vaginal ring) prior to study drug administration; if the subject is currently using a hormonal contraceptive, she should also use a barrier method during this study and for 3 months after study completion

  • Intrauterine device (IUD)

  • Double-barrier method: male condom plus diaphragm or vaginal cap with spermicide (contraceptive sponge, jellies or creams)

  • Additionally, male subjects (including those who are vasectomized) whose partners are pregnant or might be pregnant must agree to use condoms for the duration of the study and for 6 months following completion of therapy

  • Women of childbearing potential must have a negative urine pregnancy test within 7 days prior to initiation of treatment; women will be considered not of childbearing potential if they are surgically sterile (bilateral oophorectomy or hysterectomy) and/or post menopausal (amenorrheic for at least 12 months); should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while she or her partner is participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately

  • Patients with untreated brain metastases are not allowed; patients with a prior history of brain metastases are eligible provided:

  • The brain metastases have been treated

  • The patient is asymptomatic from the brain metastases

  • Corticosteroids prescribed for the management of brain metastases have been discontinued at least 7 days prior to registration

  • The brain metastases are stable on pre-registration imaging

  • Patients must have completed last chemotherapy >= 3 weeks or radiotherapy >= 2 weeks prior to receiving study drugs

  • Patients must have recovered from adverse events attributable to previous treatment to =< grade 1, except for alopecia and sensory neuropathy =< grade 2

  • Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Major surgery within 21 days of starting protocol treatment

  • Patients must discontinue previous EGFR-TKI at least 7 days prior to study enrollment

  • Patients who are receiving any other investigational agents

  • Past medical history of interstitial lung disease, drug-induced interstitial lung disease, radiation pneumonitis requiring steroid treatment, or any evidence of clinically active interstitial lung disease

  • Patients currently receiving (or unable to stop use prior to receiving the first dose of study treatment) medications or herbal supplements known to be potent inhibitors of cytochrome P450, family 3, subfamily A, polypeptide 4 (CYP3A4) (at least 1 week prior) and potent inducers of CYP3A4 (at least 3 weeks prior); all patients must try to avoid concomitant use of any medications, herbal supplements and/or ingestion of foods with known inducer/inhibitory effects of CYP3A4

  • Patients with active malignancies other than NSCLC or prior curatively treated malignancy at high risk of relapse during the study period with the exception of localized squamous or basal cell skin cancers

  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, gastrointestinal disease limiting absorption of AZD9291 such as a malabsorption syndrome or inflammatory bowel disease or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements

  • Mean resting corrected QT interval (QTc using Fridericia's formula [QTcF]) > 470 msec

  • Any clinically important abnormalities in rhythm, conduction or morphology of resting electrocardiography (ECG) (e.g., complete left bundle branch block, third degree heart block, second degree heart block)

  • Congenital long QT syndrome or family history of long QT syndrome

  • Left ventricular ejection fraction < 50% on echocardiogram or multi-gated acquisition (MUGA)

  • Pregnant women are excluded from this study; breastfeeding should be discontinued if the mother is treated with AZD9291 and necitumumab
