Last verified: February 2014

The purpose of this two-stage phase II study is to assess the efficacy of BKM120, as measured by determining the progression free survival (PFS), in patients with pretreated metastatic Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) that exhibits PI3K pathway activation. BKM120 will be investigated in two groups of NSCLC patients according to the histology of the cancer: squamous and non-squamous.

Condition Intervention Phase
Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Drug: BKM120 or Docetaxel
Drug: BKM120 or Docetaxel or Pemetrexed
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open Label Two-stage Study of Orally Administered BKM120 in Patients With Metastatic Non-small Cell Lung Cancer With Activated PI3K Pathway

Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression Free Survival (PFS) as measured using RECIST 1.1 [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine Time to Response (TTR) [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine Duration of Response [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Characterize safety as measured by frequency and severity of AEs and lab values [ Time Frame: Until 30 days after last dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 122
