Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: March 5, 2018)
Progression-free Survival (PFS) Among Subjects With KRAS Mutation Positive NSCLC (ITT Population) Treated With Erlotinib Plus Tivantinib Compared to Single Agent Chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: Date of randomization until disease progression per RECIST (v 1.1) or death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 24 months. ]
Progression is defined using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST v 1.1) criteria as at least a 20% increase in the sum of diameters of target lesions, taking as reference the smallest sum on study. In addition to the relative increase of 20%, the sum must also demonstrate an absolute increase of at least 5 mm. The appearance of one or more new lesions or progression of existing non-target lesions are also considered progression.
Original Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: July 14, 2011)
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate median progression-free survival (PFS) among subjects with KRAS mutation positive NSCLC (ITT population) treated with erlotinib plus ARQ 197 compared to single agent chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: Date of randomization until disease progression per RECIST (Version 1.1) or death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 24 months. ]

Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: March 5, 2018)
  • Overall Survival (OS) Among All Eligible Subjects (ITT Population) Treated With Erlotinib Plus Tivantinib Compared to Chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: Date of randomization to the date of death from any cause, assessed up to 24 months ]
    OS is calculated from the date of randomization until death from any cause.
  • Objective Response Rate (ORR) Among All Eligible Subjects (ITT Population) Treated With Erlotinib Plus Tivantinib Compared to Chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: Date of randomization to the date of death from any cause or to the date that the subject discontinues from the study, assessed up to 24 months ]
    Per RECIST v1.1, Complete Response (CR) = disappearance of all lesions and Partial Response (PR) = at least 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions. ORR = (CR+PR)/# subjects.
  • ORR Among Subjects in the Crossover Period Treated With Erlotinib Plus Tivantinib [ Time Frame: Date of randomization to the date of death from any cause or to the date that the subject discontinues from the study, assessed up to 24 months. ]
    Per RECIST v1.1, CR = disappearance of all lesions and PR = at least 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions. ORR = (CR+PR)/# subjects.
Original Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: July 14, 2011)
  • To evaluate median overall survival (OS) among all eligible subjects (ITT population) treated with erlotinib plus ARQ 197 compared to chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: Date of randomization to the date of death from any cause, assessed up to 24 months ]
  • To determine the objective response rate (ORR) among all eligible subjects (ITT population) treated with erlotinib plus ARQ 197 compared to chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: Date of randomization to the date of death from any cause or to the date that the subject discontinues from the study, assessed up to 24 months ]
  • To determine the objective response rate (ORR) among subjects randomly assigned to chemotherapy who cross over following disease progression to receive erlotinib plus ARQ 197 and who are evaluable for a post-progression scan on crossover therapy. [ Time Frame: Date of randomization to the date of death from any cause or to the date that the subject discontinues from the study, assessed up to 24 months. ]
  • To further characterize the safety (adverse events) of ARQ 197 in combination with erlotinib in subjects with KRAS mutation positive NSCLC. [ Time Frame: Every three weeks throughout the study period and up to 30 days after the last dose of study medication, assessed up to 24 months. ]

Brief Title  ICMJE Erlotinib Plus Tivantinib (ARQ 197) Versus Single Agent Chemotherapy in Locally Advanced or Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Official Title  ICMJE A Phase 2 Randomized Open-label Study of Erlotinib Plus Tivantinib (ARQ 197) Versus Single Agent Chemotherapy in Previously Treated KRAS Mutation Positive Subjects With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to evaluate progression-free survival among subjects with KRAS mutation positive Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) treated with erlotinib plus tivantinib (ARQ 197) compared to single agent chemotherapy.
Detailed Description This is a randomized, open-label Phase 2 study designed to compare treatment with erlotinib plus tivantinib (ARQ 197) versus single agent chemotherapy in subjects with previously treated KRAS mutation positive NSCLC. Eligible subjects are randomly assigned to receive erlotinib plus tivantinib or one of three (based on Investigator's choice) single-agent chemotherapy agents including pemetrexed, docetaxel, or gemcitabine.
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 2
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Intervention  ICMJE
  • Drug: ARQ 197 plus erlotinib
    Eligible subjects will be randomly assigned to receive erlotinib plus ARQ 197.
    Other Name: Tivantinib
  • Drug: Pemetrexed, docetaxel or gemcitabine
    Investigator's choice of a single agent chemotherapy (pemetrexed, docetaxel, or gemcitabine) administered according to the approved label.
Study Arms  ICMJE
  • Experimental: tivantinib (ARQ 197) plus erlotinib arm

    Eligible subjects will be randomly assigned to receive erlotinib plus tivantinib (ARQ 197).

    Treatment will be open-label and continue until progression of disease, unacceptable toxicity, or another discontinuation criterion is met.

    Intervention: Drug: ARQ 197 plus erlotinib
  • Active Comparator: Chemotherapy arm
    Investigator's choice of single agent chemotherapy (pemetrexed, docetaxel, or gemcitabine) administered in 3-week cycles according to the approved label until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Subjects who discontinued chemotherapy can be switched to the crossover arm (tivantinib plus erlotinib) and continue treatment until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
    Intervention: Drug: Pemetrexed, docetaxel or gemcitabine
