Brief Summary:

This is a non-randomized, multicenter, single-stage phase II study of mifepristone in patients with advanced or metastatic NSCLC who have failed two or more previous chemotherapy regimens.

The Investigator plans to enroll 18 evaluable patients in Stage 1, and additionally up to 22 evaluable patients in Stage 2 for a total of 40 evaluable patients. Participants will be followed for overall survival. Current salvage therapy in advanced NSCLC achieves a median progression free survival time of 10 weeks and overall survival of 10 months. The Investigator would like to provide evidence that mifepristone will increase the median progression-free survival time to 15 weeks and overall survival time of 16 months.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: mifepristone
mifepristone 300 mg capsule per day, orally in 28-day cycles
Drug: Mifepristone
Mifepristone is an antagonist of the GR-II (glucocorticoid) receptor, yet has little affinity for the GR-I (mineralocorticoid) receptor. Mifepristone is also a potent antagonist at the progesterone receptor, and may block the androgen receptor to a limited degree.
Other Name: KORLYM®, C1073, CORLUXIN™ and CORLUX™.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 16 months ]
  2. Improvement in Quality of Life (QoL) [ Time Frame: every 8 weeks from date of enrollment until end of study or the date of death from any cause, assessed using QoL questionnaire,assessed up to 56 months. ]
    Participants complete QoL questionnaire every 8 weeks

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression free survival [ Time Frame: median of 15 weeks from study enrollment until end of study or the date of first documented progression, assessed every 12 weeks by radiologic examination,assessed up to 56 months. ]
  2. Overall response rate [ Time Frame: assessed every 4 weeks, from date of enrollment until end of study or the date of death from any cause, assessed up to 56 months. ]
  3. Number of participants with treatment-related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v4.0 [ Time Frame: assessed every week for 1 month and then every 4 weeks, from date of enrollment until end of study or the date of death from any cause, assessed up to 56 months. ]

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

Each patient must meet the following criteria to be enrolled in the study

  1. Must understand and voluntarily sign an informed consent
  2. Age ≥ 18 years at the time of signing the informed consent
  3. Histological or cytological documented diagnosis of locally advanced, recurrent or metastatic (Stage IIIB or Stage IV) NSCLC
  4. Patients must have evidence of disease, measurable or evaluable disease as defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST v1.1).
  5. Patients shall provide results of tumor testing for epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation or anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangement, and if positive for EGFR mutation or ALK rearrangement shall have received appropriate targeted therapy prior to enrollment. If not previously tested, EGFR and ALK testing must be performed prior to study entry.
  6. Patients shall have progressed after two or more previous chemotherapy regimens for metastatic or locally advanced disease
  7. Patients must have recovered from any toxic effects and at least 3-4 weeks must have elapsed from the last dose of previous therapy, prior to registration
  8. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0 - 3
  9. Life expectancy of at least 12 weeks
  10. Patients must have adequate bone marrow and renal/hepatic function at the screening visit, defined as:

    • Absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1,500/mm3 without granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) support within 7 days preceding the lab assessment
    • Platelet count ≥ 100,000/mm3, without transfusion within 7 days preceding the lab assessment
    • Hemoglobin ≥ 9 g/dL, without transfusion support within 7 days preceding the lab assessment
    • Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) or alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 3 × upper limit of normal (ULN)
    • Total serum bilirubin ≤ 1.5 times ULN
    • Serum creatinine ≤ ULN
    • Potassium and magnesium levels within normal limits. Patients with potassium or magnesium below the lower limit of normal must have levels corrected to normal by supplementation prior to starting study drug
