The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the hypothesis that cixutumumab given in combination with cisplatin and pemetrexed is superior to cisplatin and pemetrexed as first-line therapy for patients with advanced nonsquamous non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC).
Non-Small-Cell Lung Carcinoma
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||An Open-label, Multicenter, Randomized Phase 2 Study Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of Cisplatin and Pemetrexed With or Without Cixutumumab as First-Line Therapy in Patients With Advanced Nonsquamous Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Baseline to disease progression or death from any cause ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Proportion of patients achieving an objective response (objective response rate) [ Time Frame: Baseline to disease progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: Baseline to death from any cause ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Duration of response [ Time Frame: Time from response to disease progression or death from any cause ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Time to progressive disease [ Time Frame: Baseline to disease progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Time to worsening of symptoms as measured by Lung Cancer Symptom Scale (LCSS) score [ Time Frame: Baseline to first date of worsening in any one of the six LCSS symptoms ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Change in tumor size [ Time Frame: Change from baseline measurement to the end of Cycle 2 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Experimental: Pemetrexed + Cisplatin + Cixutumumab
Induction Treatment: Pemetrexed 500 mg/m^2 plus cisplatin 75 mg/m^2 plus cixutumumab 20 mg/kg given intravenously (IV) on Day 1 of a 21 day cycle for up to 4 cycles. Two additional cycles of cisplatin may be given (6 cycles total) for patients with significant tumor size reduction, after sponsor approval.
Maintenance Therapy: Pemetrexed 500 mg/m^2 plus cixutumumab 20 mg/kg given IV every 21 days until progression of disease, unacceptable toxicity, or another withdrawal criterion is met.
Administered intravenously (IV)
Other Name: LY3012217
Active Comparator: Pemetrexed + Cisplatin
Induction Treatment: Pemetrexed 500 mg/m^2 plus cisplatin 75 mg/m^2 given intravenously (IV) on Day 1 of a 21 day cycle for up to 4 cycles. Two additional cycles of cisplatin may be given (6 cycles total) for patients with significant tumor size reduction, after sponsor approval.
Maintenance Therapy: Pemetrexed 500 mg/m^2 given IV every 21 days until progression of disease, unacceptable toxicity, or another withdrawal criterion is met.
Administered intravenously (IV)
