Bortezomib in KRAS-Mutant Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer in Never Smokers or Those With KRAS G12D

This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center Identifier:
First received: April 11, 2013
Last updated: May 5, 2017
Last verified: May 2017
The purpose of this study is to test the drug Bortezomib to see how well it works. The investigators want to find out what effects, good or bad, it has on patients with a limited smoking history or who have a specific mutation associated with their lung cancer.

Condition Intervention Phase
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Drug: Bortezomib Drug: Acyclovir Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2 Trial of Bortezomib in KRAS-Mutant Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer in Never Smokers or Those With KRAS G12D

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • efficacy of single-agent subcutaneous bortezomib [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The following evaluations will be conducted to assess the efficacy of bortezomib - radiographic response rate by RECIST v1.1

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Secondary endpoints of progression free survival, 8-week stable disease, and overall survival will be evaluated according to RECIST v.1.1 criteria as well.

  • Toxicity [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Before each drug dose, the patient will be evaluated for possible toxicities that may have occurred after the previous dose(s). Toxicities are to be assessed according to the NCI Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE v4.0,).

Estimated Enrollment: 25
Study Start Date: April 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Bortezomib
Bortezomib will be administered by subcutaneous injection twice weekly for 2 weeks (Days 1, 4, 8, and 11) at 1.3 mg/m2/dose followed by a 10-day rest period for a 21 day cycle. Dose modifications are permitted as per a prescribed algorithm. Acyclovir at 400mg daily is recommended as prophylaxis for herpes zoster. Restaging scans, with evaluation of response, will be done every 2 cycles (6 weeks of treatment ± 7 days). Treatment will continue until clinical disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, treatment delay > 2 weeks, or at the discretion of the treating physician or patient.
Drug: Bortezomib Drug: Acyclovir
