Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Dose Limiting Toxicities (DLTs) in the First Cycle for the Determination of the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: Cycle 1: 21 days (part C and D) or 28 days (part A and B) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Dose limiting toxicity (DLT) was defined as an Adverse Event (AE) or laboratory abnormality considered as related to study treatment.

  • Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: Cycle 1: 21 days (part C and D) or 28 days (part A and B) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The MTD of afatinib in selected combination treatments was defined as the highest dose at which no more than 1 out of 6 patients experienced DLTs during the first treatment cycle, i.e. the highest dose with a DLT incidence ≤17%. The MTD was determined separately for Afatinib in combination with Paclitaxel (part A), Afatinib in combination with Paclitaxel and Bevacizumab (part B), Afatinib and Carboplatin (part C), and Afatinib in combination with Paclitaxel and Carboplatin (part D).

    In part C, dose escalation was not continued beyond the dose level A40C6, due to safety and pharmacokinetic considerations and upon mutual agreement between the investigators and the sponsor. Formally, no MTD was determined, however a recommended phase II dose was determined and is presented here.

    0=not maximum tolerated dose, 1=is maximum tolerated dose

    Note, the depicted order of treatment groups is driven by dose level, not by the actual dosing steps.

  20. Major surgery within 4 weeks of starting treatment or any wound(s) deemed by the investigator to pose a significant risk to the patient in the event of delayed healing.
  21. Prior treatment with anthracycline and/or prior radiation to the chest wall ( patients in these categories will only be entered into the study where the investigator deems the benefit to the patient to outweigh the risk).
  22. Patients with any of the following conditions: significant hypertension, significant haemoptysis, known brian metastases, thrombotic or haemorrhagic disorders, INR greater than or equal to 1.5 abnormal PTT, therapeutic anti-coagulation, squamous non small cell lung cancer Additional exclusion criteria for patients recruited to cohorts C and D
