Study Design

Allocation randomized
Endpoint classification safety/efficacy study
Intervention model parallel assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
Arm
(Experimental)
Eligible subjects will be randomly assigned to receive erlotinib plus tivantinib (ARQ 197). Treatment will be open-label and continue until progression of disease, unacceptable toxicity, or another discontinuation criterion is met.
arq 197 plus erlotinib Tivantinib
Eligible subjects will be randomly assigned to receive erlotinib plus ARQ 197.
(Active Comparator)
A single agent chemotherapy (pemetrexed, docetaxel, or gemcitabine) administered according to approved labeling
pemetrexed, docetaxel or gemcitabine
A single agent chemotherapy (pemetrexed, docetaxel, or gemcitabine) administered according to approved labeling.

Primary Outcomes

Measure
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate median progression-free survival (PFS) among subjects with KRAS mutation positive NSCLC (ITT population) treated with erlotinib plus ARQ 197 compared to single agent chemotherapy.
time frame: Date of randomization until disease progression per RECIST (Version 1.1) or death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 24 months.

Secondary Outcomes

Measure
To evaluate median overall survival (OS) among all eligible subjects (ITT population) treated with erlotinib plus ARQ 197 compared to chemotherapy.
time frame: Date of randomization to the date of death from any cause, assessed up to 24 months
To determine the objective response rate (ORR) among all eligible subjects (ITT population) treated with erlotinib plus ARQ 197 compared to chemotherapy.
time frame: Date of randomization to the date of death from any cause or to the date that the subject discontinues from the study, assessed up to 24 months
To determine the objective response rate (ORR) among subjects randomly assigned to chemotherapy who cross over following disease progression to receive erlotinib plus ARQ 197 and who are evaluable for a post-progression scan on crossover therapy.
time frame: Date of randomization to the date of death from any cause or to the date that the subject discontinues from the study, assessed up to 24 months.
To further characterize the safety (adverse events) of ARQ 197 in combination with erlotinib in subjects with KRAS mutation positive NSCLC.
time frame: Every three weeks throughout the study period and up to 30 days after the last dose of study medication, assessed up to 24 months.

Eligibility Criteria

Hemoglobin ≥ 10 g/dL (transfusion is allowed at least 7 days prior to randomization) 16. Subjects must agree to allow testing for c-Met status if archival and/or fresh tissue biopsy samples are available. Exclusion Criteria: 1. Previous receipt of erlotinib or other EGFR 2. Previous receipt of any c-MET inhibitor or other c-MET-targeted therapy, including ARQ 197, MetMab, crizotinib 3. Prior receipt of chemotherapy agent selected for administration in this study (e.g., if subject was treated with gemcitabine, he is not eligible to receive gemcitabine in this study but eligible to receive pemetrexed or docetaxel). 4. Inability or unwillingness to receive ARQ 197, erlotinib, docetaxel, gemcitabine, and/or pemetrexed including contraindications, hypersensitivity, or prior administration 5. Receipt of any anti-tumor treatment for NSCLC within 3 weeks (2 weeks for radiotherapy) prior to randomization 6. Pregnant or breastfeeding 7.

Official title A Phase 2 Randomized Open-label Study of Erlotinib Plus Tivantinib (ARQ 197) Versus Single Agent Chemotherapy in Previously Treated KRAS Mutation Positive Subjects With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Description This is a randomized, open-label Phase 2 study designed to compare treatment with erlotinib plus tivantinib (ARQ 197) versus single agent chemotherapy in subjects with previously treated KRAS mutation positive NSCLC. Eligible subjects are randomly assigned to receive erlotinib plus tivantinib or one of three (based on Investigator's decision) single-agent chemotherapy agents including pemetrexed, docetaxel, or gemcitabine.
