Brief Summary:
The trial will be performed to evaluate whether BI 2536 may be effective in the treatment of advanced or metastatic NSCLC of stage IIIB or IV in patients who relapsed after or failed first-line therapy. A secondary aim is to identify the most suitable dosage schedule for the further Phase II and III clinical programme of BI 2536. To achieve this objective two dosage schedules are compared.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective Tumour Response Evaluated According to the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST 1.0) by Central Review of the Tumour Images [ Time Frame: assessed at baseline, then every 6 weeks (every second treatment course) until disease progression or start of any other anti-tumour therapy or death or individual participant's end of trial, up to 533 days ]
    The best overall response was the best response recorded from start of treatment until the participant progressed, received any other anti-tumour therapy, died or until the individual participant's end of trial. Number of participants with 'Objective tumour response evaluated according to RECIST 1.0 by central review of the tumour images = Yes' are reported. Objective response is complete response (disappearance of all target lesions) or partial response (at least a 30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum longest diameter). Changes in tumour measurements were confirmed by repeat assessments that had to be performed 6 weeks after the criteria for response had been first met.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: every 6 weeks (every second treatment course), up to 419 days ]

    Progression-free survival defined as time from date of randomisation until "date of imaging indicating progressive disease (PD) as assessed by the independent central imaging review (according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST) version 1.0)" or "date of investigator assessment of clinical progression" or "date of progressive disease recorded during the follow-up period" or "death date", whatever comes first. Participants without documented progression at the time of analysis were censored at the date of the last visit.

    Per RECIST version 1.0 for target lesions and assessed by Computed Tomography (CT)-scan or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): PD, At least a 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter (SoD) of target lesions taking as reference the smallest SoD of target lesions recorded since the treatment started or the appearance of one or more new lesions.


  2. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: every 6 weeks (every second treatment course), up to 599 days ]
    Overall survival defined as time from date of randomisation until date of death from any cause. Participants alive at the time of analysis were censored at the date of the last trial visit or last date of follow-up, whatever came last.

  3. Duration of Overall Response [ Time Frame: assessed at baseline, then every 6 weeks (every second treatment course) until disease progression or start of any other anti-tumour therapy or death or individual participant's end of trial, up to 533 days ]
    For participants who showed an overall tumour response of complete response (CR, disappearance of all target lesions) or partial response (PR, at least a 30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum longest diameter), 'duration of overall response' was defined as the time from the first date where measurement criteria were met for CR or PR (whichever was first recorded) until the first date that recurrent or progressive disease (PD) was objectively documented (taking as reference for PD the smallest measurements recorded since the treatment started). Tumour response was evaluated based on local radiological images according to RECIST version 1.0 (agreed upon by independent review). The number of participants with an CR or PR who experienced the event 'recurrent or PD' is reported instead of the time-to-event data with unit of time as the number analyzed was too small to perform a Kaplan-Meier analysis.

  4. Objective Tumour Response Evaluated According to the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST 1.0) by Investigator [ Time Frame: assessed at baseline, then every 6 weeks (every second treatment course) until disease progression or start of any other anti-tumour therapy or death or individual participant's end of trial, up to 533 days ]

    The best overall response was the best response recorded from start of treatment until the participant progressed, received any other anti-tumour therapy, died or until the individual participant's end of trial. 'Objective tumour response evaluated according to RECIST 1.0 by investigator' is 'Yes' if the best overall response is either complete response (CR, disappearance of all target lesions) or partial response (PR, at least a 30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum longest diameter). Otherwise it is 'No'. To be assigned a status of 'partial response' or 'complete response', changes in tumour measurements were confirmed by repeat assessments that had to be performed six weeks after the criteria for response had been first met.

    Number of participants with 'Objective tumour response evaluated according to RECIST 1.0 by investigator = Yes' are reported.


  5. Time-to-deterioration for Symptom Score 'Cough' Assessed on Question 1 on the Lung Cancer Module QLQ LC13 of the European Organization for Research and Treatment Quality of Life (QoL) Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ) C30 Version 3.0 [ Time Frame: baseline and every 3 weeks (prior to the first administration of BI 2536 in a treatment course comprising 3 weeks), up to 539 days ]
    Time to deterioration for cough [days] was defined as the time from randomization to deterioration in score for the symptom 'cough'. Participants were considered to have deteriorated if a 10-point increase from the baseline score at any time point after baseline was observed. Participants who died before deteriorating were analyzed as having deteriorated at the time of death. Participants with disease progression without deterioration in score were censored at the time of the last scale measurement. Participants with no QoL assessments were censored at day 1. The score for symptom 'cough' was based on Question 1 on the lung cancer module QLQ LC13 of the EORTC QLQ C30 Version 3.0. A linear transformation was used to standardize the raw scores, so that scores range from 0 to 100. A high score represents a higher ("worse") level of the symptom 'cough'.

  6. Time-to-deterioration for Symptom Score 'Dyspnoea' Assessed on the Composite of Questions 3-5 on the Lung Cancer Module QLQ LC13 of the European Organization for Research and Treatment Quality of Life (QoL) Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ) C30 Version 3.0 [ Time Frame: baseline and every 3 weeks (prior to the first administration of BI 2536 in a treatment course comprising 3 weeks), up to 539 days ]
    Time to deterioration for dyspnoea [days] was defined as the time from randomization to deterioration in score for the symptom 'dyspnoea'. Participants were considered to have deteriorated if a 10-point increase from the baseline score at any time point after baseline was observed. Participants who died before deteriorating were analyzed as having deteriorated at the time of death. Participants with disease progression without deterioration in score were censored at the time of the last scale measurement. Participants with no QoL assessments were censored at day 1. The score for symptom 'dyspnoea' was based on the composite of Questions 3-5 on the lung cancer module QLQ LC13 of the EORTC QLQ C30 Version 3.0. A linear transformation was used to standardize the raw scores, so that scores range from 0 to 100. A high score represents a higher ("worse") level of the symptom 'dyspnoea'.

  7. Time-to-deterioration for Symptom Score 'Pain' Assessed on the Composite of Questions 9 and 19 of the European Organization for Research and Treatment Quality of Life (QoL) Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ) C30 Version 3.0 [ Time Frame: baseline and every 3 weeks (prior to the first administration of BI 2536 in a treatment course comprising 3 weeks), up to 539 days ]
    Time to deterioration for pain [days] was defined as the time from randomization to deterioration in score for the symptom 'pain'. Participants were considered to have deteriorated if a 10-point increase from the baseline score at any time point after baseline was observed. Participants who died before deteriorating were analyzed as having deteriorated at the time of death. Participants with disease progression without deterioration in score were censored at the time of the last scale measurement. Participants with no QoL assessments will be censored at day 1. The score for symptom 'pain' was based on the composite of Questions 9 and 19 of the EORTC QLQ C30 Version 3.0. A linear transformation was used to standardize the raw scores, so that scores range from 0 to 100. A high score represents a higher ("worse") level of the symptom 'pain'.
