Condition carcinoma, non-small-cell lung
Treatments ly2875358, erlotinib
Phase phase 2
Targets c-MET, EGFR
Sponsor Eli Lilly and Company
Start date August 2013
End date March 2016
Trial size 150 participants
Trial identifier NCT01897480, 14209, 2012-005476-33, I4C-MC-JTBB


The primary purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of the study drug LY2875358, given together with erlotinib, against erlotinib, alone. Participants will have Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) that has advanced to Stage IV. Participants should not have been treated with drugs for Stage IV NSCLC, previously. All participants will get erlotinib alone, for approximately 8 weeks. Participants with radiographic disease control at the end of the erlotinib lead-in study period will be randomly assigned to receive LY2875358 plus erlotinib or erlotinib alone. Participants, who were chosen to receive erlotinib, alone, may cross over to the combination treatment at the time of progression.

Administered IV
Administered Orally
(Active Comparator)
Lead In: Approximately 8 weeks of erlotinib 150 mg given orally per day. Randomization: Continue Erlotinib 150 mg given orally per day, in 28-day cycles.
Administered Orally
