NCT02616393 : Study of Tesevatinib in Subjects With Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer, EGFR Activating Mutation, Prior Treatment With a Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor, and Brain Metastases or Leptomeningeal Metastases
PhasePhase 2
AgesMin: 18 Years Max: N/A
Eligibility
Cohort A

Inclusion Criteria:

- History of NSCLC with EGFR mutation or an EGFR activating mutation that has had a
clinical response to erlotinib, afatinib, or gefitinib in the patient being enrolled.

- Occurrence or progression of BM while receiving either erlotinib or afatinib or
gefitinib. Previous systemic treatment included erlotinib or afatinib or gefitinib for
at least 14 days. Patients may have received osimertinib or rociletinib, or other
agents inhibiting the T790M EGFR mutation, but only if they then receive at least 14
days of treatment with erlotinib, afatinib, or gefitinib and have CNS but not
peripheral progression

- At least one measurable BM by RECIST 1.1 criteria (? 10mm in longest diameter). Target
lesions must not have received stereotactic radiotherapy (SRS). If subject had prior
whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT), progression in any measurable BM lesion must have
occurred at least 3 months after the end of WBRT. Subjects with asymptomatic brain
metastases may be enrolled without prior radiation therapy to the brain. Subjects with
minimally symptomatic brain metastases may be enrolled without prior radiation therapy
to the brain if they do not require immediate surgical or radiation therapy in the
opinion of the treating investigator and in the opinion of a radiation therapy or
neurosurgical consultant

- Subjects in Cohort A may have asymptomatic LM detected by MRI. (Subjects with symptoms
or signs attributed to LM will be enrolled in Cohort B whether or not they have brain
metastases)

- No clinically significant progression outside of the CNS on most recent EGFR inhibitor
therapy

- ECOG Score ?2

- No history of another malignancy in the 5 years prior to study entry, except treated
non-melanoma skin cancer or superficial bladder cancer or carcinoma-in-situ of the
cervix or Stage 1 or 2 cancers of other sites that have been treated surgically and
have not recurred

- Adequate organ and bone marrow functions

- Serum potassium and magnesium levels above the lower limit of normal

- No coexisting medical problems of sufficient severity to limit compliance with the
study

- Willing and able to sign written informed consent and be able to comply with the study
protocol for the duration of the study

- Women of childbearing potential (i.e., menstruating women) must have a negative urine
pregnancy test (positive urine tests are to be confirmed by serum test)

Exclusion Criteria:

- First day of dosing with tesevatinib is less than 2 weeks from the last treatment of
cytotoxic chemotherapy, biological therapy, or immunotherapy, and less than 6 weeks
for nitrosoureas and mitomycin C. Surgical procedures must have been performed at
least 2 weeks prior to the start of study treatment. Subjects must have recovered from
the reversible effects of prior lung cancer treatments, including surgery and
radiation therapy (excluding alopecia)

- First day of dosing with tesevatinib is less than 4 weeks from the last radiotherapy
of the brain or spinal cord/cauda equina

- First day of dosing with tesevatinib is less than 2 weeks from treatment with another
investigational agent

tesevatinib and treatment with afatinib or other tyrosine kinase inhibitor must be
discontinued at least 3 days prior to first dose of tesevatinib

- Any concurrent therapy for BM other than the specified treatment in this study

- Taking any medication known to moderately or severely inhibit the CYP3A4 isozyme or
any drugs that are CYP3A4 inducers (including anti-epileptic agents such as
phenytoin). A stable regimen (? 4 weeks) of antidepressants of the SSRI class is
allowed (common SSRIs include escitalopram oxalate, citalopram, fluvoxamine,
paroxetine, sertraline, and fluoxetine)

prior to study entry; symptomatic coronary insufficiency congestive heart failure;
moderate or severe pulmonary dysfunction

- History of torsades de pointes, ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation, pathologic
sinus bradycardia (< 50 bpm), heart block (excluding first degree block, being PR
interval only), or congenital long QT syndrome. Subjects with a history of atrial
arrhythmias should be discussed with the medical monitor

- Known contraindication to MRI, such as cardiac pacemaker, shrapnel, or ocular foreign
body

- Has marked prolongation of QTc(F) interval at screening or baseline (QTc[F] interval >
470 msec) using the Fridericia method of correction for heart rate

- Gastrointestinal (GI) condition that interferes with drug absorption

- Non-malignant neurological disease that would interfere with evaluation of symptoms or
signs of brain metastases

Cohort B

Inclusion Criteria:

- History of NSCLC with EGFR mutation (either exon 19 deletion or L858R mutation) or, if
previously treated, history of an activating EGFR mutation that has had a clinical
