Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate progression-free survival among subjects with KRAS mutation positive Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) treated with erlotinib plus tivantinib (ARQ 197) compared to single agent chemotherapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Drug: ARQ 197 plus erlotinib Drug: Pemetrexed, docetaxel or gemcitabine Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a randomized, open-label Phase 2 study designed to compare treatment with erlotinib plus tivantinib (ARQ 197) versus single agent chemotherapy in subjects with previously treated KRAS mutation positive NSCLC. Eligible subjects are randomly assigned to receive erlotinib plus tivantinib or one of three (based on Investigator's choice) single-agent chemotherapy agents including pemetrexed, docetaxel, or gemcitabine.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 96 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2 Randomized Open-label Study of Erlotinib Plus Tivantinib (ARQ 197) Versus Single Agent Chemotherapy in Previously Treated KRAS Mutation Positive Subjects With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Study Start Date : July 2011
Actual Primary Completion Date : August 2016

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: tivantinib (ARQ 197) plus erlotinib arm

Eligible subjects will be randomly assigned to receive erlotinib plus tivantinib (ARQ 197).

Treatment will be open-label and continue until progression of disease, unacceptable toxicity, or another discontinuation criterion is met.

Drug: ARQ 197 plus erlotinib
Eligible subjects will be randomly assigned to receive erlotinib plus ARQ 197.
Other Name: Tivantinib
Active Comparator: Chemotherapy arm
Investigator's choice of single agent chemotherapy (pemetrexed, docetaxel, or gemcitabine) administered in 3-week cycles according to the approved label until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Subjects who discontinued chemotherapy can be switched to the crossover arm (tivantinib plus erlotinib) and continue treatment until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Drug: Pemetrexed, docetaxel or gemcitabine
Investigator's choice of a single agent chemotherapy (pemetrexed, docetaxel, or gemcitabine) administered according to the approved label.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free Survival (PFS) Among Subjects With KRAS Mutation Positive NSCLC (ITT Population) Treated With Erlotinib Plus Tivantinib Compared to Single Agent Chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: Date of randomization until disease progression per RECIST (v 1.1) or death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 24 months. ]
    Progression is defined using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST v 1.1) criteria as at least a 20% increase in the sum of diameters of target lesions, taking as reference the smallest sum on study. In addition to the relative increase of 20%, the sum must also demonstrate an absolute increase of at least 5 mm. The appearance of one or more new lesions or progression of existing non-target lesions are also considered progression.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival (OS) Among All Eligible Subjects (ITT Population) Treated With Erlotinib Plus Tivantinib Compared to Chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: Date of randomization to the date of death from any cause, assessed up to 24 months ]
    OS is calculated from the date of randomization until death from any cause.

  2. Objective Response Rate (ORR) Among All Eligible Subjects (ITT Population) Treated With Erlotinib Plus Tivantinib Compared to Chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: Date of randomization to the date of death from any cause or to the date that the subject discontinues from the study, assessed up to 24 months ]
    Per RECIST v1.1, Complete Response (CR) = disappearance of all lesions and Partial Response (PR) = at least 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions. ORR = (CR+PR)/# subjects.

  3. ORR Among Subjects in the Crossover Period Treated With Erlotinib Plus Tivantinib [ Time Frame: Date of randomization to the date of death from any cause or to the date that the subject discontinues from the study, assessed up to 24 months. ]
    Per RECIST v1.1, CR = disappearance of all lesions and PR = at least 30% decrease in the sum of diameters of target lesions. ORR = (CR+PR)/# subjects.
