Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: At baseline and every 6 weeks for the first 18 months and then every 12 weeks relative to randomisation until progression (approximately 11.5 months) ]
    Defined as the time from randomisation until the date of objective disease progression or death (by any cause in the absence of progression) regardless of whether the patient withdraws from randomised therapy or receives another anti-cancer therapy prior to progression.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: At baseline and every 6 weeks for the first 18 months and then every 12 weeks relative to randomisation until progression (approximately 11.5 months) ]
    Defined as the number (%) of patients with measurable disease with at least 1 visit response of CR (Complete response) or PR (Partial response).

  • Progression Free Survival (PFS) in patients with positive (or negative) T790M mutation [ Time Frame: At baseline and every 6 weeks for the first 18 months and then every 12 weeks relative to randomisation until progression (approximately 11.5 months) ]
    PFS defined as the time from randomisation until the date of objective disease progression or death (by any cause in the absence of progression) regardless of whether the patient withdraws from randomised therapy or receives another anti-cancer therapy prior to progression.

  • Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: From first dose to end of study or date of death from any cause, whichever comes first, assessed every 6 weeks (approximately 29 months) ]
    Defined as the time from randomization until death from any cause

  • Patient Reported Outcome by Therapy Satisfaction (CTSQ-16 Questionnaire) [ Time Frame: Questionnaire completed in cycle 2 and 3, prior to Week 6 scan (approximately 2 months) ]
    Measured by the Cancer Therapy Satisfaction Questionnaire 16 items (CTSQ-16). The questionnaire assesses the satisfaction with and preference for chemo, hormonal, and biological therapies in either oral (pill) and/or IV form.

  • Plasma concentrations of AZD9291 and metabolites AZ5104 and AZ7550; and ratio of metabolite to AZD9291 [ Time Frame: Blood samples will be collected from each participant at pre-dose, 0.5 to 2 hours, and 3 to 5 hours post-dose on Day 1 Cycle 1, and every other cycle thereafter up to and including Cycle 13 (approximately 9 months) ]
    The pharmacokinetics exposure parameters derived from plasma concentrations of AZD9291 and metabolites AZ5104 and AZ7550.

  • Patients reported disease-related symptoms and HRQoL by EORTC QLQ-C30 [ Time Frame: Questionnaires completed at baseline and every 6 weeks until the time of second progression (approximately 20 months) ]
    Questionnaire consisting of 30 items measuring subjects general cancer symptoms and functioning.

  • Duration of Response (DoR) [ Time Frame: At baseline and every 6 weeks for the first 18 months and then every 12 weeks until objective disease progression (approximately 11.5 months) ]
    Defined as the time from the date of first documented response (i.e., subsequently confirmed) until the date of documented progression or death in the absence of disease progression.

  • Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: At baseline and every 6 weeks for the first 18 months and then every 12 weeks until objective disease progression (approximately 11.5 months) ]
    Defined as the percentage of patients who have a best overall response of CR or PR or SD (Stable disease).

  • Depth of response [ Time Frame: At baseline and every 6 weeks for the first 18 months and then every 12 weeks until objective disease progression (approximately 11.5 months) ]
    Defined as the relative change in the sum of the longest diameters of RECIST target lesions at the nadir in the absence of new lesions or progression of non-target lesions compared to baseline.

  • Patients reported disease-related symptoms and HRQoL by EORTC QLQ-LC13 [ Time Frame: Questionnaires completed at baseline, weekly and then every 3 weeks until the time of second progression (approximately 20 months) ]
    A complementary questionnaire measuring lung cancer symptoms and side effects from conventional chemo- and radiotherapy.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Adverse events will be collected from baseline until 28 days after the last dose of AZD9291/SoC EGFR-TKI (expected average 13 months) ]
