Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of this investigational drug, brigatinib (AP261136) in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who have had first-line treatment for their cancer and it still got worse, even after, or while taking drugs called ALK inhibitors, or anti-cancer drugs that act on tumors. Some examples of these anti-cancer drugs are: KEYTRUDA® or ALECENSA®).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Drug: brigatinib Phase 2

Detailed Description:

A significant population of Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) plus Non-small cell lung cancer patients exist that have progressed on or who were intolerant of second generation anaplastic lymphoma kinase inhibitor (e.g. ceritinib or alectinib). Brigatinib has demonstrated activity in patients who have progressed on crizotinib, but the activity of brigatinib in patients who have progressed on ceritinib, alectinib, or other second generation anaplastic lymphoma kinase inhibitors is unknown. Based on the preclinical data. 3, , brigatinib has activity against known secondary anaplastic lymphoma kinase mutations suggesting it may retain activity after second-generation anaplastic lymphoma kinase inhibitors.

Patients enrolled in ARI-AT-002 must have previously received a second generation Anaplastic lymphoma kinase inhibitor other than brigatinib. We have chosen 20% as a clinically meaningful response rate that would justify further study of brigatinib in previously treated anaplastic lymphoma kinase plus disease.

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

Locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC that has been cytologically or histologically confirmed

ALK rearrangement based on FDA approved test (e.g. Vysis breakapart FISH or IHC using Ventana)


Age of ≥ 18 years

Brain lesions may be used as target lesions if progressing, ≥10mm in longest diameter and if they were not previously treated with any of the following:

  • If archival tissue is not available and biopsies to obtain fresh tumor tissue cannot be performed with minimal risk to the subject, subjects may be permitted to enroll on the study with prior approval of the Study PI.
  • In the situation the patient undergoes biopsy within 60 days prior to D1. and there is insufficient tumor tissue subjects for the correlative science part of the protocol patient will be permitted to enroll on the study with prior approval of the study PI
  • In the situation the patient undergoes molecular testing or next-generation sequencing as part of standard care there must be sufficient tumor sample available for participation in the study (i.e. a next generation sequencing report is not sufficient for enrollment)
