Brief Summary:
This is a global, randomized, double-blind, controlled study to evaluate the efficacy of bemarituzumab (FPA144) + mFOLFOX6 versus placebo + mFOLFOX6 in patients with FGFR2 selected Gastric Cancer (as determined by prospective IHC FGFR2b overexpression and/or a ctDNA blood assay demonstrating FGFR2 gene amplification)

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Gastric Cancer Drug: bemarituzumab (FPA144) Drug: Placebo Drug: mFOLFOX6 Phase 3

Detailed Description:
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of bemarituzumab (FPA144), which is a targeted antibody, in combination with modified FOLFOX6 compared to placebo in combination with modified FOLFOX6 in participants with Gastric Cancer as measured by overall survival.

Drug: mFOLFOX6

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: up to approximately 46 months ]
    Time from enrollment until death from any cause

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 46 months ]
    time from enrollment until the EARLIER OF a. progression or b. death from any cause.

  2. Overall response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 46 months ]
    Proportion of patients with partial or complete response based on assessment of tumor lesions per RECIST v1.1

  3. Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events as assessed by CTCAE v4.03 [ Time Frame: Through completion of study treatment, an average of 1 year ]
    Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) classified by MedDRA preferred term and assessed by CTCAE.
