The phase II JO28638 study evaluated first-line onartuzumab plus erlotinib in patients with MET-positive advanced, metastatic, or post-operative recurrent non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations. The study was stopped following termination of the global METLung study (OAM4971g), which showed lack of efficacy in the onartuzumab/erlotinib arm. We present immature efficacy and safety data from JO28638.

Erlotinib, an epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor, may have off-target activity inducing acute myeloid leukemia (AML) differentiation, possibly through SYK inhibition. We investigated er...
Erlotinib is used for treating non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Intestinal absorption of erlotinib is impaired under gastric pH elevation, therefore, co-administration of gastric acid suppressants ...
Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer death in China. Four epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitors - afatinib, erlotinib, icotinib, and ...
Erlotinib is used to treat non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Erlotinib was subsidized on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Schedule in Australia for the treatment of advanced stage (IIIB or IV) NSCLC (Aug...
Introduction Based on preclinical cytotoxic synergy between tipifarnib and erlotinib, a phase I study of this combination was conducted in patients with advanced solid tumors to evaluate safety, toler...
This multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study will evalua te the safety and efficacy of onartuzumab in combination with erlotinib in patie nts with previously untrea...
A Study of Onartuzumab (MetMAb) in Combination With Tarceva (Erlotinib) in Patients With Met Diagnostic-Positive Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Who Have Received Chemotherapy For Advanced or Metastatic Disease (MetLung)
This randomized, multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled study will evalua te the efficacy and safety of onartuzumab (MetMAb) in combination with Tarceva ( erlotinib) in patients wit...
This extension study will provide continued onartuzumab and/or P-trial-designated control treatments to patients with cancer who were previously enrolled in a company-sponsored onartuzumab...
This multicenter, open-label study will evaluate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD ) and dose-limiting toxicities of onartuzumab as single agent and in combination with sorafenib in patient...
To evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of erlotinib as first line treatment in patients with locally advanced/metastatic (stages IIIB/IV) NSCLC, with clinical predictors of response to tyro...
A quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.
Drugs used in the treatment of tuberculosis. They are divided into two main classes: "first-line" agents, those with the greatest efficacy and acceptable degrees of toxicity used successfully in the great majority of cases; and "second-line" drugs used in drug-resistant cases or those in which some other patient-related condition has compromised the effectiveness of primary therapy.
The founding member of the glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor family. It was originally characterized as a NERVE GROWTH FACTOR promoting the survival of MIDBRAIN dopaminergic NEURONS, and it has been studied as a potential treatment for PARKINSON DISEASE.
A treatment method in which patients are under direct observation when they take their medication or receive their treatment. This method is designed to reduce the risk of treatment interruption and to ensure patient compliance.
Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
Lung cancer is the uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Originating in the lungs, this growth may invade adjacent tissues and infiltrate beyond the lungs. Lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, is respons...
