Further study details as provided by Merrimack Pharmaceuticals:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase 1: To determine the recommended Phase 2 dose of the MM-121 + erlotinib combination based upon either the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or the maximum feasible dose of the combination in patients with NSCLC. [ Time Frame: June 2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase 2: To estimate the progression-free survival of the MM-121 + erlotinib combination in patients with NSCLC. [ Time Frame: December 2012 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 260
Study Start Date: February 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2014
Primary Completion Date: November 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: MM-121+erlotinib Drug: MM-121 (SAR256212) + erlotinib
MM-121 (SAR256212) = intravenous solution erlotinib = daily oral tablet
Other Name: MM-121 (SAR256212) + Tarceva
Active Comparator: Erlotinib (Tarceva) Drug: Erlotinib
erlotinib = daily oral tablet
Other Name: Tarceva

Detailed Description:

Phase 1: Patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) may be enrolled to evaluate the safety, tolerability and recommended Phase 2 dose of MM-121 in combination with standard therapy.

Phase 2: Patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) may be enrolled to estimate the progression-free survival of the MM-121 + standard therapy.
