|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Squamous Non Small Cell Lung Cancer||Drug: Open-label AZD2014 Drug: paclitaxel||Phase 2|
This is an open-label, phase 2a, multi-centre, single-arm study to assess the efficacy and safety of the combination of AZD2014 and weekly paclitaxel in patients with squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that is relapsed or refractory to conventional treatment after at least 1 prior treatment with standard of care (SOC) and for whom weekly paclitaxel treatment is an appropriate treatment choice.
The study will simultaneously enrol patients to the following two groups. Group A (intensive PK) will enrol 10 evaluable patients for an intra-patient evaluation of the impact of paclitaxel on exposure to AZD2014, and the impact of AZD2014 on exposure to paclitaxel via intensive PK sampling and non-compartmental PK analysis techniques (NCA). Group B (sparse PK) will enrol 30 patients and sparse sampling and population PK modelling techniques will be employed to estimate exposure to AZD2014 when administered in combination with a weekly paclitaxel dosing regimen. The efficacy and safety of the AZD2014 and weekly paclitaxel combination will be evaluated in all 40 patients using RECIST 1.1, observation of AEs/SAEs and use of conventional safety parameters.
Eligible patients will receive study treatment consisting of a single weekly paclitaxel infusion (80 mg/m2) on Day 1 of each week and twice daily (BD) 50 mg doses of AZD2014 on the first 3 days each week for 6 weeks [except Group A patients in Week 1 of Cycle 1 who will take 50 mg BD doses of AZD2014 on Days 3, 4 and 5 (or Days 4, 5 and 6) to accommodate PK sampling], followed by a break from treatment when no paclitaxel or AZD2014 will be given. This 7-week schedule composes one cycle of treatment. AZD2014 will be administered as oral tablets to fasted patients (i.e., no food 2 hours before and 1 hour after each dose). Patients will receive up to 6 cycles of paclitaxel, although additional cycles of paclitaxel may be given if deemed appropriate by the Investigator.

The safety and tolerability of AZD2014 with weekly paclitaxel as assessed with the collection of Adverse Events and Serious Adverse Events as reported during clinic visits. In addition, clinical assessments were made throughout the on treatment period including blood test for chemistry, haematology, and blood clotting. In addition to clinical observations such as vital signs, and cardiac function through the use of ECG.
Any findings from the above assessments which were considered to be abnornal and clinically significant by the doctor were reported as (AEs or SAEs).

Any patient not known to have died at the time of analysis censored at the last recorded date the patient was known to be alive
- Best Objective Response: Number of Patients Who Experienced a Best Response of Complete Response (CR), Partial Response (PR), Stable Disease (SD), Progressive Disease (PD), Not-Evaluable (NE), Through Measurement of Tumour Lesion Sizes. [ Time Frame: From Baseline until Disease Progression (Approx 3 months) ]Per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumours (RECIST v1.1) for target lesions assessed through imaging (CT or MRI scan) or clinical examination; Complete Response (CR): Disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR) >=30% decrease in sum of target lesion longest diameter; Progressive Disease >=20% increase in sum of target lesion longest diameter; Stable Disease (SD) increase or decrease amounting to neither PR or PD. Overall tumour assessment based on quantitative assessment of target lesions and qualitative assessment of non-target lesions in line with RECIST criteria.
- Duration of Response: Median Number of Days From the Date of First Documented Response Until the Date of Documented Progression Through Measurement of Tumour Lesion Sizes [ Time Frame: From date of first documented response until documented progression or end of life in the absence of progression (Approx 3 months) ]Assessment of the duration of tumour response through assessment of tumour lesions by RECIST 1.1 criteria. Response is defined as the point at which the criteria for Partial Response (PR) was met) >=30% decrease in sum of target lesion longest diameter. Progression is defined as the point at which the criteria for Progressive Disease (PD) was met >=20% increase in sum of target lesion longest diameter, or until end of life.
- Disease Control Rate: Percentage of Patients Who Achieve Partial Response, Complete Response or Stable Disease Through Assessment of Tumour Lesion Sizes [ Time Frame: From first dose until documented progression and at least 6 weeks after the start of treatment for assessment of Stable Disease - Assessed at 6, 13 and 20 Weeks ]Assessment of the disease control rate, percentage of patients who experience a response through assessment of tumour lesions by RECIST 1.1 criteria
- Change in Tumour Size: Median Percentage Change in Tumour Size in mm by Measurement of Tumour Lesion Sizes [ Time Frame: From baseline until documented progression (Approx 3 months) ]Assessment of the degree of tumour response through measurement of the change in tumour lesion sizes
