Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 1b, open-label, multicentre study of AZD6094 in combination with gefitinib in patients with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation positive (m+) and progressed on EGFR Tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) treatment.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Drug: Volitinib Drug: gefitinib Phase 1

Detailed Description:

A total of 53 patients will be enrolled in the safety run-in and expansion phases:

  • Safety run-in phase - patients with EGFR mutation-positive (EGFRm+), locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), who have progressed on previous EGFT TKI treatment.In the safety run-in phase of the study, the sample size may vary, depending on the number of dose levels evaluated and the number of Dose Limiting Toxicities (DLTs) observed in each cohort.
  • Expansion phase - patients who are EGFRm+ and cMet-positive with locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC, who have progressed on previous EGFR-TKI treatment.

  6. Presence of other active cancers, or history of treatment for invasive cancer ≤5 years. Patients with Stage I cancer who have received definitive local treatment at least 3 years previously, and are considered unlikely to recur are eligible.
