Brief Summary:
Fruquintinib/Placebo 5 mg, QD, orally administered under fasting conditions for 3 consecutive weeks followed by one-week off to evaluate the survival benefit of patients with advanced non-squamous NSCLC treated with Fruquintinib.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
NSCLC Drug: Fruquintinib Drug: Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:

This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-center Phase III clinical trial in patients with advanced non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with Fruquintinib who failed 2 lines of systemic chemotherapy or with non-tolerable toxicities.

Approximately 521 subjects will be randomized to Fruquintinib group or placebo group at a ratio of 2:1. Patients in the two groups can receive supportive treatment.

Randomization will be stratified by EGFR gene status (mutant vs. wild type) and history of treatment by VEGF inhibitors (yes vs no) .

All subjects will receive study treatment in 4-week cycles: Fruquintinib/placebo for 3 consecutive weeks, and then one week off. Tumor assessment will be performed every 4 weeks in the first 2 cycles, and every 8 weeks since the 3rd cycle, until disease progression or death. Subsequent anti-neoplastic treatment and survival status will be followed up after disease progression.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: From the date of randomization until the date of death from any cause, Assessed up to 15 months ]
    Duration from randomization to death from any cause


Secondary Outcome Measures :

    Occurence of completed response or partial response after treatment, assessed by RECIST 1.1

  2. progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until the date of first documented progression or the date of death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 12 months ]
    The duration from randomization to first documented progression or death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed by RECIST 1.1

  3. Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until the date of first documented progression or the date of death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 12 months ]
    Occurence of completed response, or partial response, or stable disease, assessed by RECIST 1.1

  4. duration of response (DOR) [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until the date of first documented progression or the date of death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 12 months ]
    Duration from first documented completed response or partial response to first documented progression or death from any cause, whichever came first

  5. safety and tolerability by incidence, severity and outcome of adverse events [ Time Frame: From randomization to 30 days after last dose, assessed up to 13 months ]
    To evaluate the safety and tolerability in the two groups by incidence, severity and outcomes of AEs and categorized by severity in accordance with the NCI CTC AE Version 4.03

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 75 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Fully understand the study and sign the informed consent form voluntarily;
  2. Histologically or cytologically diagnosed with local advanced and/or metastatic stage IIIB/IV non-squamous NSCLC;
  3. Disease progressed or developed non-tolerable toxicity after 2 lines of systemic chemotherapy (not including TKI therapy); Notes: a. The first-line chemotherapy should be platinum-based doublets regimens; b. For each line of systemic therapy, at least one treatment cycle should be completed, and maintenance therapy using one of the doublets is considered as the same line of therapy; c. Previous adjuvant/neoadjuvant therapy is allowed. If disease progressed during the adjuvant/neoadjuvant therapy period or within 1 year after completion of the above treatment, it is considered that patient failed the first-line systemic chemotherapy;
  4. Patients with EGFR genetic test negative; or positive with EGFR, test result but resistant or intolerable to related targeted therapies;
