The primary objective of this trial is to determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of the combination of BIBW 2992/BIBF 1120 therapy administered concomitantly. The MTD will provide dosing recommendation for subsequent phase II trials in patients with metastatic cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of Nintedanib and Afatinib Based on the Percentage of Participants Experienced Dose Limiting Toxicities [ Time Frame: first treatment cycle, up to 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of nintedanib and afatinib based on the Percentage of participants experienced dose limiting toxicities during the dose escalation phase.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Tumour Response Rate Assessed by the Investigator According to the Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumours (RECIST) Version 1.1 [ Time Frame: Week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The investigator evaluated whether complete response (CR), partial response (PR), stable disease (SD) or progressive disease (PD) occurred in a patient.

    CR for target lesions: Disappearance of all target lesions. CR for non-target lesions: Disappearance of all non-target lesions and normalization of tumour marker level. All lymph nodes must be non-pathological in size (<10mm short axis).

    PR: At least a 30% decrease in the sum of diameters (SoD) of target lesions taking as reference the baseline sum diameters.

    SD: Neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for PD, taking as references the smallest SoD while on study.

    PD: At least a 20% increase in the SoD of target lesions, taking as references the smallest sum on study (this includes the baseline sum if that is the smallest on study). Also, the sum must also demonstrate an absolute increase of a least 5mm. Appearance of one or more new lesions

  • Incidence and Intensity of Adverse Events According to CTCAE (Common Toxicity Criteria Adverse Event) Version 3.0 [ Time Frame: First treatment administration until cut-off date of 16 November 2012 up to 267 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Incidence and intensity of Adverse Events with grading according to the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE version 3.0).

  • Changes in Safety Laboratory Parameters [ Time Frame: First treatment administration until cut-off date of 16 November 2012, up to 267 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Changes in safety laboratory Parameters reported as adverse events

  • Cpre,ss,Norm (Dose Normalized Trough Plasma Concentration of Nintedanib at Steady State) [ Time Frame: Day 8, Day 15, Day 22 and Day 28 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Cpre,ss,norm (Dose normalized trough plasma concentration of nintedanib at steady state) are presented for the 2 MTD treatment groups (continuous administered nintedanib at 150 mg b.i.d. concomitantly with continuously administered afatinib 30 mg q.d. or with intermittently administered afatinib 40 mg q.d.)

    As nintedanib is given twice daily, samples are taken at Day 8, Day 15, Day 22 and Day 28; the Pharmacokinetic parameter names will be Cpre,ss,15,norm (Day 8), Cpre,ss,29,norm (Day 15), Cpre,ss,43,norm (Day 22) and Cpre,ss,55,norm (Day 28)

  • Trough Plasma Concentration of Afatinib at Steady State [ Time Frame: Day 7, Day 13, Day 15, Day 22, Day 27 and Day 28 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    C(pre,ss) is defined as pre-dose (trough) concentration of afatinib in plasma at steady state immediately before administration of the next dose.

    C24,7 corresponds to the plasma concentration at 24 hours on Day 7. C24,13 corresponds to the plasma concentration at 24 hours on Day 13. C24,27 corresponds to the plasma concentration at 24 hours on Day 27.
