  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to treat patients with locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC with a combination therapy of selumetinib and two different doses of docetaxel 75mg/m2 or 60 mg/m2 vs placebo and compare how well each dose affects how their cancer responds. It will also help us to understand the tolerability profile of the different dosing regimens in these patients.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Measured at baseline until the date of first documented objective disease progression, assessed up to 16 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progression free survival is defined as the time from randomisation until the date of objective disease progression (RECIST 1.1) or death (by any cause in the absence of progression).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Measured at baseline until the date of death due to any cause, assessed up to 16 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall Survival is defined as the time from the date of randomisation until death due to any cause.

  • Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Measured at baseline until the date of first documented objective disease progression, assessed up to 16 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    ORR is defined as the number (%) of subjects with at least one visit response of complete response (CR) or partial response (PR).

  • Duration of Response [ Time Frame: Measured at baseline until the date of first documented objective disease progression, assessed up to 16 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration of response will be defined as the time from the date of first documented response until date of documented progression or death in the absence of disease progression.

  • Change in tumour size at week 6 [ Time Frame: At baseline and at week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Percentage change from baseline in tumour size at week 6 based on RECIST 1.1 target lesion measurement.

  • The safety and tolerability profile of Selumetinib in Combination With Docetaxel [ Time Frame: Measured from baseline until 30 days after the date of discontinuation of the last study treatment, assessed up to 16 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The safety and tolerability profile of Selumetinib in Combination With Docetaxel will be assessed using adverse events, clinical chemistry, haematology and urinalysis, vital signs, ECGs and echocardiograms/MUGA.

  • Correlation of KRAS mutation status with efficacy of treatment [ Time Frame: Measured from date of randomisation until the date of first documented objective disease progression, assessed up to 16 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Efficacy will be assessed within KRAS mutation subgroups in terms of PFS, OS, ORR and change in tumour size at week 6.

    KRAS: v-Ki-ras2 Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog


  • The effect on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) [ Time Frame: Measured from baseline until the date of discontinuation of study treatment, assessed up to 16 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The effect of HRQoL will be assessed using the summary items of the LCSS-Lung Cancer Symptom Scale (symptom distress, interference with activity levels and global HRQoL); the average LCSS score (the mean of all 9 items of the LCSS); the scores for each of the 8 health domain scales as well as the 2 summary measures of the SF-36v2 (Short Form Health Survey - 36 Items (Version 2)).

  • The pharmacokinetics (PK) of selumetinib and N-desmethyl selumetinib measured by AUC, Cmax. [ Time Frame: PK samples taken on day 22 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The pharmacokinetics (PK) of selumetinib and N-desmethyl selumetinib when administered in combination with docetaxel measured by derived PK parameters, such as AUC and Cmax.

    AUC: Area under plasma concentration time curve


  • Symptom improvement rate (using ASBI from LCSS) [ Time Frame: Measured from date of randomisation until 30 days post treatment discontinuation, assessed up to 16 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The symptom improvement rate will be defined as the number (%) of patients with two consecutive assessments at least 18 days apart (ie 21 days allowing a visit window of 3 days) which showed a clinically meaningful improvement in symptoms from baseline (defined as a decrease in the ASBI from baseline ≥10). LCSS-Lung Cancer Symptom Scale; ASBI-Average symptom burden index.

  • Time to symptom progression (using ASBI from LCSS) [ Time Frame: Measured from date of randomisation until 30 days post treatment discontinuation, assessed up to 16 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to symptom progression will be defined as the time from randomization until the date of first clinically meaningful symptom deterioration (defined as an increase in the ASBI from baseline ≥10), or death (by any cause). LCSS-Lung Cancer Symptom Scale; ASBI-Average symptom burden index.
