  Purpose

This is a Phase III, multicenter, placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized study. Approximately 650 patients will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to one of two treatment arms.


Condition Intervention Phase
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Drug: bevacizumab
Drug: erlotinib HCl
Drug: placebo
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase III, Multicenter, Placebo-Controlled, Double-Blind, Randomized Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy of Bevacizumab in Combination With Tarceva (Erlotinib) Compared With Tarceva Alone for Treatment of Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) After Failure of Standard First-Line Chemotherapy

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival (OS) Among All Randomized Patients [ Time Frame: From the date of randomization until the date of patient death from any cause, or the date of last contact. (Up to 3.1 years) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall Survival was defined as the period from the date of randomization until the date of patient death from any cause. For patients who had not died, survival data was censored at the date of last contact.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: From randomization to documented disease progression or death on study treatment, whichever occurred first. (Up to 3.1 years) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PFS was defined as the time from randomization to documented disease progression, as determined by the investigator using the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST), or death on study treatment, whichever occurred first.

  • Percentage of Participants With Objective Response [ Time Frame: The median duration of Objective response was up to 9.7 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Objective response was defined as a complete or partial response determined by RECIST on two consecutive occasions >= 4 weeks apart.

  • Duration of Objective Response [ Time Frame: Period from Objective response until disease progression or death on study treatment. (Up to 29.5 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration of objective response was defined as the period from the date of the initial partial or complete response until the date of disease progression or death on study treatment from any cause. For patients who had not died, data was censored at the date of last contact.
