Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 2, open-label, multicenter study to assess the efficacy and safety of second/third-line treatment with nab-paclitaxel in combination with the epigenetic modifying therapy of CC-486 or immunotherapy of durvalumab, and nab-paclitaxel monotherapy in subjects with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Carcinoma, Non-Small-Cell Lung Drug: nab-paclitaxel IV Drug: CC-486 Drug: Duravalumab Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This Phase 2 study will test the hypothesis that epigenetic modifying therapy of CC-486 or immunotherapy of durvalumab can improve the anti-tumor activity of nab-paclitaxel in subjects with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who have received no more than one prior chemotherapy regimen for their advanced disease. It will further assess efficacy and safety of nab-paclitaxel monotherapy in this setting. Each subject will receive study therapy as second- or third-line of treatment. Approximately 240 male and female subjects with advanced NSCLC will be assigned to one of the following treatment arms (approximately 80 subjects per group): nab-paclitaxel /CC-486 combination therapy, nab-paclitaxel/durvalumab combination therapy or nab-paclitaxel monotherapy prior to receiving first dose of Investigational Product. A permuted-block randomization method will be employed to assign the subjects among the treatment arms that are enrolling simultaneously, when applicable, stratified by the following baseline factors: ECOG performance status (0 versus 1), gender (males versus females), and smoker (yes versus no). Treatment assignments of subjects to the nab-paclitaxel/CC-486 combination therapy and nab-paclitaxel monotherapy arms will be conducted completely in a randomized fashion.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Kaplan Meier Estimate of Progression-Free Survival (PFS) as Assessed by the Investigator [ Time Frame: From date of first dose of IP to DP; up to data cut-off date of 30 August (Aug) 2017 for nab-paclitaxel and CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and 23 December (Dec) 2017 for Durva + nab-paclitaxel; participants were followed for PFS for up to 18 months ]
    Progression-free survival was defined as the time in months from the date of randomization/assignment to the date of disease progression according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) Version 1.1 criteria documented by computed tomography (CT) scan, not including symptomatic deterioration, or death (any cause) on or prior to the clinical cut-off date, which ever occurred earlier. Participants who did not have disease progression and had not died, regardless of whether they were discontinued from treatment, were censored at the date of last tumor assessment, on or prior to the clinical cut-off date that the participant was progression free. Progressive Disease was defined as at least a 20% increase in the sum of diameters of target lesions from nadir.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants Who Achieved a Complete Response (CR), Partial Response (PR) or Stable Disease (SD) According to RECIST V 1.1 Criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 30 Aug 2017 for nab-paclitaxel and CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and 23 Dec 2017 for Durva + nab-paclitaxel; maximum treatment duration = 82.1 weeks, 52.6 weeks and 66.1 weeks for nab-paclitaxel, CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and Durva + nab-paclitaxel ]

    Disease control rate was defined as the percentage of participants who had a CR, PR or SD during the course of the study, according to RECIST version 1.1 criteria, as evaluated by the investigator. RECIST Version 1.1 criteria is defined as follows:

    • Complete Response is the disappearance of all target lesions;
    • Partial Response is at least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions from baseline;
    • Stable Disease is neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase of lesions to qualify for progressive disease. Responses were evaluated every 6 weeks.

  2. Percentage of Participants Who Achieved a Best Overall Response of Complete Response or Partial Response According to RECIST V 1.1 Criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 30 Aug 2017 for nab-paclitaxel and CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and 23 Dec 2017 for Durva + nab-paclitaxel; maximum treatment duration = 82.1 weeks, 52.6 weeks and 66.1 weeks for nab-paclitaxel, CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and Durva + nab-paclitaxel ]
    Overall Response was defined as percentage of participants who achieved a radiologic confirmed complete response or partial response according to RECIST V 1.1 criteria and compared with baseline among all tumor assessments, where baseline was the last CT obtained prior to or on Day 1 of treatment. Per RECIST V 1.1 criteria, a CR is defined as a disappearance of all target lesions; a PR is defined as having at least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions from baseline. Responses were evaluated every 6 weeks.

  3. Kaplan Meier Estimate of Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to 30 Aug 2017 for nab-paclitaxel and CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and 23 Dec 2017 for Durva + nab-paclitaxel; participants were followed for overall survival up to 30 months ]
    Overall survival was defined as the time in months between randomization/treatment assignment and death from any cause. Participants who were still alive as of the clinical cut-off date had their OS censored at the date of last contact or clinical cut-off, whichever was earlier. Participants who were lost to follow-up prior to the end of the study or who were withdrawn from the study were censored at the time of last contact.

  4. Number of Participants With Treatment Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) During the Entire Treatment Period [ Time Frame: TEAEs were collected up to 4 weeks after receiving last dose of IP for nab-paclitaxel and CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel, and up to 90 days after the last IP dose for Durva + nab-paclitaxel; TEAEs were collected up to 86.1 weeks ]
    TEAEs were defined as any adverse event or serious adverse event that occurred or worsened on or after the day of the first dose of the IP through 28 days after the last dose of IP for Arms A and C or up to 90 days after the last dose for Arm B, and those SAEs made known to the investigator at any time thereafter that are suspected of being related to IP. A serious AE (SAE) = any AE which results in death; is life-threatening; requires inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization; results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity; is a congenital anomaly/birth defect; constitutes an important medical event. The severity of AEs were graded based on National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE), Version 4.0 and the scale: Grade 1 = Mild l intervention/therapy required Grade 2 = Moderate Grade 3 = Severe Grade 4 = Life threatening Grade 5 = Death.

  5. Percentage of Participants Who Discontinued Study Treatment [ Time Frame: Up to 30 Aug 2017 for nab-paclitaxel and CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and 23 Dec 2017 for Durva + nab-paclitaxel; maximum treatment duration = 82.1 weeks, 52.6 weeks and 66.1 weeks for nab-paclitaxel, CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and Durva + nab-paclitaxel ]
    The discontinuation rate was defined as the percentage of participants who had study drug discontinued and was assessed throughout the conduct of the study.

  6. Dose Intensity Per Week of Nab-Paclitaxel [ Time Frame: Up to 30 Aug 2017 for nab-paclitaxel and CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and 23 Dec 2017 for Durva + nab-paclitaxel; maximum treatment duration = 82.1 weeks, 52.6 weeks and 66.1 weeks for nab-paclitaxel, CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and Durva + nab-paclitaxel ]
    Dose intensity was the cumulative dose divided by the dosing period in weeks.

  7. Dose Intensity Per Week of CC-486 [ Time Frame: Up to 30 Aug 2017 for nab-paclitaxel and CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and 23 Dec 2017 for Durva + nab-paclitaxel; maximum treatment duration = 82.1 weeks, 52.6 weeks and 66.1 weeks for nab-paclitaxel, CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and Durva + nab-paclitaxel ]
    Dose intensity was the cumulative dose divided by the dosing period in weeks.

  8. Dose Intensity Per Week of Durvalumab [ Time Frame: Up to 30 Aug 2017 for nab-paclitaxel and CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and 23 Dec 2017 for Durva + nab-paclitaxel; maximum treatment duration = 82.1 weeks, 52.6 weeks and 66.1 weeks for nab-paclitaxel, CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and Durva + nab-paclitaxel ]
    Dose intensity was the cumulative dose divided by the dosing period in weeks).

  9. Percentage of Participants With Study Drug Dose Reductions [ Time Frame: Up to 16 Jan 2017 for CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and up to 23 Dec 2017 for nab-paclitaxel and Durva + nab-paclitaxel; maximum treatment duration = 82.1 weeks, 52.6 weeks and 66.1 weeks for nab-paclitaxel, CC-486 + nab-paclitaxel and Durva + nab-paclitaxel ]
    A dose reduction occurred when the dose assigned at a visit was lower than the dose assigned at the previous visit. Dose reductions were typically caused by clinically significant laboratory abnormalities and/or TEAEs or toxicities.
