Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: March 17, 2017)
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

Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: March 17, 2017)
  • The number of participants with pathologic response rate [ Time Frame: 5 years follow-up ]
    Pathologic response rate is defined as < 50% of viable tumor present histologically in the resected tumor specimen.
  • The number of participants with metabolic response rate [ Time Frame: 6 weeks post treatment ]
    FDG-PET scan will measure metabolic pre-and post-induction therapy response as per PERCIST criteria
  • The number of participants with disease-free survival (DFS) [ Time Frame: 5 years follow-up ]
    DFS is defined as the time from treatment to the first of either disease recurrence or death from any cause.
  • The number of participants with overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 5 years follow-up ]
    OS is defined as the time from study enrollment to death from any cause.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Evaluating Crizotinib in the Neoadjuvant Setting in Patients With Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
Official Title  ICMJE A Phase II Trial to Evaluate Crizotinib in the Neoadjuvant Setting in Patients With Surgically Resectable, ALK, ROS1, or MET-oncogene Positive Non-small Cell Lung Cancer
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.
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.
Study Type  ICMJE Interventional
Study Phase  ICMJE Phase 2
Study Design  ICMJE Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Condition  ICMJE Lung Cancer, Nonsmall Cell
Intervention  ICMJE 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
Study Arms  ICMJE 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.
Intervention: Drug: Crizotinib

  4. Measurable disease defined by RECIST 1.1 criteria.
  5. Life expectancy of at least 24 months.
  6. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 to 1.
