Targeted Treatment for RET Fusion-Positive Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (A LUNG-MAP Treatment Trial)

2020-02-19 18:28:44 | BioPortfolio


This phase II LUNG-MAP treatment trial studies how well selpercatinib works in treating patients with RET fusion-positive non-small cell lung cancer that is stage IV or has come back (recurrent). Selpercatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.



I. To evaluate the objective response rate (ORR) (confirmed complete or partial response) by blinded independent centralized review (BICR) associated with selpercatinib (LOXO-292) in patients with previously-treated stage IV or recurrent RET fusion-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).


I. To evaluate the duration of BICR-assessed response among BICR responders. II. To evaluate the frequency and severity of toxicities. III. To evaluate the investigator-assessed objective response rate (confirmed complete or partial response).

IV. To evaluate duration of investigator-assessed response among patients with a response as determined by the local investigator.

V. To evaluate investigator-assessed progression-free survival (IA-PFS). VI. To evaluate BICR-assessed PFS. VII. To evaluate overall survival (OS).

VIII. Among patients with brain metastases at baseline:

VIIIa. To evaluate the central nervous system (CNS) response rate (confirmed complete response [CR]).

VIIIb. To evaluate the duration of intracranial response among patients with a CNS response.


I. To collect, process, and bank cell-free deoxyribonucleic acid (cfDNA) at baseline, progression, and end of treatment for future development of a proposal to evaluate comprehensive next-generation sequencing of circulating tumor deoxyribonucleic acid (ctDNA).

II. To establish a tissue/blood repository from patients with refractory non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).


Patients receive selpercatinib orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-28. Cycles repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 6 months for 2 years and then at the end of 3 years from date of sub-study registration.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.

A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).

A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.

An anaplastic, highly malignant, and usually bronchogenic carcinoma composed of small ovoid cells with scanty neoplasm. It is characterized by a dominant, deeply basophilic nucleus, and absent or indistinct nucleoli. (From Stedman, 25th ed; Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1286-7)

A carcinoma discovered by Dr. Margaret R. Lewis of the Wistar Institute in 1951. This tumor originated spontaneously as a carcinoma of the lung of a C57BL mouse. The tumor does not appear to be grossly hemorrhagic and the majority of the tumor tissue is a semifirm homogeneous mass. (From Cancer Chemother Rep 2 1972 Nov;(3)1:325) It is also called 3LL and LLC and is used as a transplantable malignancy.
