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.

Novartis ( Novartis Pharmaceuticals )
  Purpose
A single-arm, open-label, multicenter, phase II study. Treatment with LDK378 750 mg qd continued until the patient experienced unacceptable toxicity that precluded further treatment, discontinued treatment at the discretion of the investigator or patient, started a new anti-cancer therapy and/or died. LDK378 could be continued beyond RECIST-defined progressive disease (PD) as assessed by the investigator if, in the judgment of the investigator, there was evidence of clinical benefit. In these patients tumor assessment would continue as per the schedule of assessments until treatment with LDK378 was permanently discontinued. Patients who discontinued the study medication in the absence of progression continued to be followed for tumor assessment until the time of PD as assessed by the investigator

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Response Rate (ORR) to LDK378 Per Investigator Assessment [ Time Frame: 6 cycles of 28 days up to 24 weeks ]
    ORR per RECIST 1.1 calculated as the percentage of patients with a best overall confirmed response defined as complete response or partial response (CR+PR) as assessed by investigator. CR: Disappearance of all non-nodal target lesions. In addition, any pathological lymph nodes assigned as target lesions must have a reduction in short axis to < 10 mm 1. PR: At least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameter of all target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum of diameters.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • ORR Per Blinded Independent Review Committee (BIRC) Assessment [ Time Frame: 6 cycles of 28 days up to 24 weeks ]
    ORR (CR+PR) by BIRC is calculated as the percentage of patients with a best overall confirmed response defined as complete response or partial response (CR+PR) as assessed by BIRC. CR: Disappearance of all non-nodal target lesions. In addition, any pathological lymph nodes assigned as target lesions must have a reduction in short axis to < 10 mm 1. PR: At least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameter of all target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum of diameters.

  • Duration of Response (DOR) by Investigator [ Time Frame: 6 cycles of 28 days up to 24 weeks ]
    DOR, calculated as the time from the date of the first confirmed CR or PR to the first documented progression or death due to any cause, by investigator. CR: Disappearance of all non-nodal target lesions. In addition, any pathological lymph nodes assigned as target lesions must have a reduction in short axis to < 10 mm 1. PR: At least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameter of all target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum of diameters.

  • Duration of Response (DOR) by BIRC [ Time Frame: 6 cycles of 28 days up to 24 weeks ]
    DOR, calculated as the time from the date of the first documented CR or PR to the first documented progression or death due to underlying cancer, by BIRC (Blinded Imaging Review Committee). CR: Disappearance of all non-nodal target lesions. In addition, any pathological lymph nodes assigned as target lesions must have a reduction in short axis to < 10 mm 1. PR: At least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameter of all target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum of diameters.

  • Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: 6 cycles of 28 days up to 24 weeks ]
    DCR was calculated as the percentage of patients with best overall response of CR, PR, SD, or non-CR non-PD (NCRNPD), per RECIST 1.1 by investigator. CR: Disappearance of all non-nodal target lesions. In addition, any pathological lymph nodes assigned as target lesions must have a reduction in short axis to < 10 mm 1. PR: At least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameter of all target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum of diameters. Stable Disease (SD): Neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR or CR nor an increase in lesions which would qualify for PD. Non-CR/Non-PD (NCRNPD): refers to best overall responses that are neither CR nor PD per RECIST 1.1 criteria for patients with non-measurable disease only at baseline.

  • Time to Response (TTR) Per Investigator [ Time Frame: 6 cycles of 28 days up to 24 weeks ]
    TTR is the time from date of start of treatment to the first CR or PR observed which were confirmed afterwards.

  • Time to Response (TTR) Per BIRC [ Time Frame: 6 cycles of 28 days up to 24 weeks ]
    TTR is the time from date of start of treatment to the first CR or PR observed which are confirmed afterwards.

  • Progression-free Survival (PFS) Per Investigator [ Time Frame: 6 cycles of 28 days up to 24 weeks ]
    PFS, defined as the time from date of start of treatment to the date of event defined as the first documented progression or death due to any cause. If a patient had no event or when the patient received any further anticancer therapy in the absence of disease progression, progression-free survival was censored at the date of last adequate tumor assessment.

  • Progression-free Survival (PFS) Per BIRC [ Time Frame: 6 cycles of 28 days up to 24 weeks ]
    PFS, defined as the time from date of start of treatment to the date of event defined as the first documented progression or death due to any cause. If a patient had no event or when the patient received any further anticancer therapy in the absence of disease progression, progression-free survival was censored at the date of last adequate tumor assessment.

  • Overall Intracranial Response Rate (OIRR) Per Investigator [ Time Frame: 6 cycles of 28 days up to 24 weeks ]
    OIRR calculated as the ORR (CR+PR) of lesions in the brain for patients who had measureable disease in the brain at baseline.

  • Overall Intracranial Response Rate (OIRR) Per BIRC [ Time Frame: 6 cycles of 28 days up to 24 weeks ]
    OIRR calculated as the ORR (CR+PR) of lesions in the brain for patients who had measureable disease in the brain at baseline.

  • Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 6 cycles of 28 days up to 24 weeks ]
    OS, defined as the time from date of randomization/start of treatment to date of death due to any cause. If a patient was not known to have died, survival was censored at the date of last known date patient alive.
