Evaluating Crizotinib in the Neoadjuvant Setting in Patients With Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03088930
Recruitment Status : Completed

Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the efficacy of crizotinib as induction therapy in participants with surgically resectable ALK rearrangement, ROS1 rearrangement, or MET exon 14 mutation positive NSCLC.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lung Cancer, Nonsmall Cell Drug: Crizotinib Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Participants with stage IA-IIIA, surgically resectable lung adenocarcinoma with an activating alteration in ALK, ROS1 or MET will receive neoadjuvant treatment with crizotinib. This neoadjuvant treatment will last 6 weeks and on the last day of dosing of crizotinib, participants will undergo surgical resection, followed by 5 years of follow-up via chart review.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Neoadjuvant treatment with Crizotinib
Patients enrolled in this study will be treated with 6 weeks of induction therapy with crizotinib. On the last day of dosing, patients will then undergo surgical resection. 5 years of follow-up will be done via chart review.
Drug: Crizotinib
Crizotinib is an oral receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor of ALK, Hepatocyte Growth Factor Receptor (HGFR, c-Met), and ROS1 (c-ros). Crizotinib will be given as a neoadjuvant therapy before surgical resection. The recommended dose of crizotinib is 250mg orally. Participants on this trial will receive this dose, unless dose modification is necessary.
Other Name: Xalkori

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Number of Participants With an Objective Tumor Response Rate [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Participants' tumor response to treatment will be compared from initial/pretreatment scan to 6 week scan using RECIST 1.1

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Number of Participants With Pathologic Response Rate [ Time Frame: 37 months ]
    Pathologic response rate is defined as < 50% of viable tumor present histologically in the resected tumor specimen.

  2. Number of Participants With an Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: 6 weeks post treatment ]
    Number of participants with response rate per RECIST 1.1

  3. The Number of Participants With Disease-free Survival (DFS) [ Time Frame: 37 months ]
    DFS is defined as the time from treatment to the first of either disease recurrence or death from any cause.

  4. Overall Survival (OS) Measured in Months [ Time Frame: 37 months ]
    OS is defined as the time from study enrollment to death from any cause.
