Poziotinib in Treating Patients with Stage IV or Recurrent Non-small Cell Lung Cancer with EGFR or HER2 Exon 20 Mutation

Status: Active

Description

This phase II trial studies how well poziotinib works in treating patients with non-small lung cancer with EGFR or HER2 exon 20 mutation that is stage IV or has come back. Poziotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

  • The following age-specific requirements must also apply: Women < 50 years old: they would be considered post-menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for the past 12 months or more following cessation of exogenous hormonal treatments; the levels of luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) must also be in the post-menopausal range (as per the institution); women >= 50 years old: they would be considered post-menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for the past 12 months or more following cessation of all exogenous hormonal treatments, or have had radiation-induced oophorectomy with the last menses > 1 year ago, or have had chemotherapy-induced menopause with > 1 year interval since last menses, or have had surgical sterilization by either bilateral oophorectomy or hysterectomy
  • Non-sterilized males who are sexually active with a female partner of childbearing potential must use adequate contraception for the duration of the study and 90 days after the last dose of study medication; adequate contraception methods include: birth control pills (e.g. combined oral contraceptive pill), barrier protection (e.g. condom plus spermicide, cervical/vault cap or intrauterine device), and abstinence
  • Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document

Exclusion Criteria

  • EGFR T790M mutation or any other acquired EGFR exon 20 mutation; patients with coexisting primary EGFR exon 20 and T790M mutations are eligible
  • Have received or are receiving an investigational medicinal product (IMP) or other systemic anticancer treatment within 2 weeks prior to the first dose of study treatment
  • Any concurrent chemotherapy, immunotherapy, biologic, or hormonal therapy for cancer treatment
  • Have known or suspected brain metastases or spinal cord compression, unless the condition has been asymptomatic, has been treated with surgery and/or radiation, and has been stable without requiring escalating corticosteroids nor anti-convulsant medications for at least 4 weeks prior to the first dose of study medication
  • Known hypersensitivity to poziotinib or history of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic composition to poziotinib
  • Cardiac conditions as follows: patient has a history of congestive heart failure (CHF) class III/IV according to the New York Heart Association (NYHA) Functional Classification or serious cardiac arrhythmias requiring treatment; patient has a cardiac ejection fraction < 50% by either echocardiogram or multi-gated acquisition (MUGA) scan
  • Have any unresolved chronic toxicity with Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.03 grade >= 2, from previous anticancer therapy, except for alopecia
  • Patient is unable to take drugs orally due to disorders or diseases that may affect gastrointestinal function, such as inflammatory bowel diseases (e.g., Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis) or malabsorption syndrome, or procedures that may affect gastrointestinal function, such as gastrectomy, enterectomy, or colectomy

Trial Objectives and Outline

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To assess the objective response rate (ORR) to poziotinib according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 criteria in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with EGFR exon 20 mutations.

II. Assess the objective response rate (ORR) to poziotinib according to RECIST 1.1 criteria in NSCLC with HER2 (ErBB2) exon 20 mutations.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Disease control rate (complete response + partial response + stable response) of poziotinb in cohort 1 and 2, analyzed independently.

II. Progression free survival of poziotinb in cohort 1 and 2, analyzed independently.

III. Overall survival of poziotinb in cohort 1 and 2, analyzed independently.

IV. Duration of response of poziotinb in cohort 1 and 2, analyzed independently.

V. Safety and toxicity.

EXPLORATORY OBJECTIVES:

I. To assess molecular markers associated with resistance and response to poziotinib, including secondary mutations.

OUTLINE:

Patients receive poziotinib orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28. Cycles repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 30 days and then every 6 months thereafter.
