Brief Summary:
This research study is studying capmatinib as a treatment for advanced non-small cell lung cancer with MET exon 14 skipping, where the participant has already received prior therapy with a MET inhibitor.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Malignant Non-small Cell Neoplasm of Lung Stage IV Drug: Capmatinib (INC280) Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II clinical trials test the safety and effectiveness of an investigational intervention to learn whether the intervention works in treating a specific disease. "Investigational" means that the intervention is being studied.

The FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has not approved Capmatinib as a treatment for any disease.

In this research study, the investigators are using the study drug called Capmatinib. Capmatinib is a specific blocker of the cMET protein. This protein acts as a trigger to start a series of events in your cells in what is known as the C-Met pathway. Patients with MET exon 14 skipping have activation of the MET pathway. By blocking MET, Capmatinib may slow or stop the growth and/or survival of cancer cells. Capmatinib is not yet FDA approved for the treatment of people with this type of cancer. It is not known if capmatinib will be effective in people who have previously had other drugs that block the cMET pathway. This study will help us understand how capmatinib works in the body and what capmatinib does to cancer. Any potential harmful effects of capmatinib will also be studied.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Written informed consent must be obtained prior to any screening procedures.
  • Age ≥ 18 years
  • Histologically or cytologically confirmed non-small cell lung cancer, advanced, recurrent, or metastatic
  • MET exon 14 skipping alteration by molecular testing (local testing is accepted for eligibility; all patients will have confirmation by NGS-rearrangement assay at MGH but this result is not necessary for eligibility; local molecular pathology result will suffice). This testing can be from any archival or fresh sample.
  • Must have received prior platinum containing chemotherapy for advanced/metastatic non-small cell lung cancer, or have refused or be ineligible for such therapy. Prior neoadjuvant/adjuvant platinum containing chemotherapy will count has having received prior platinum, provided that disease recurred within 6 months of completion of neoadjuvant/adjuvant therapy.
  • EGFR and ALK status must be known in all patients with adenocarcinoma histology. Patients with activating EGFR mutations or ALK translocations are excluded from this study, unless disease has progressed on all available, approved therapies targeting these alterations.
  • At least one measurable lesion as defined by RECIST 1.1. A previously irradiated site lesion may only be counted as a target lesion if there is clear sign of progression since the irradiation.
  • Must have received prior MET inhibitor as their immediately preceding therapy. There are no limits to the number of lines of prior therapy as long as prior MET inhibitor is the most recent therapy.
  • Patients must have recovered from all toxicities related to prior anticancer therapies to grade ≤ 1 (CTCAE v 4.03). Patients with any grade of alopecia are allowed to enter the study.

Palliative radiotherapy for bone lesions ≤ 2 weeks prior to starting INC280 is allowed
  • Major surgery (e.g., intra-thoracic, intra-abdominal or intra-pelvic) within 4 weeks prior (2 weeks for resection of brain metastases) to starting INC280 or who have not recovered from side effects of such procedure. Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) and mediastinoscopy will not be counted as major surgery and patients can be enrolled in the study ≥ 1 week after the procedure
  • Patients receiving treatment with medications that meet one of the following criteria and that cannot be discontinued at least 1 week prior to the start of treatment with INC280 and for the duration of the study:

  • Previous anti-cancer and investigational agents within 4 weeks or ≤ 5 x half-life of the agent (whichever is longer) before first dose of INC280. If previous treatment is a monoclonal antibody, then the treatment must be discontinued at least 4 weeks before first dose of INC280
  • Other severe, acute, or chronic medical or psychiatric conditions or laboratory abnormalities that in the opinion of the investigator may increase the risk associated with study participation, or that may interfere with the interpretation of study results
  • Any other condition that would, in the Investigator's judgment, contraindicate patient's participation in the clinical study due to safety concerns or compliance with clinical study procedures, e.g., infection/inflammation, intestinal obstruction, unable to swallow medication, social/ psychological issues, etc.
  • Pregnant or nursing women, where pregnancy is defined as the state of a female after conception and until the termination of gestation, confirmed by a positive hCG laboratory test
  • Women of child-bearing potential, defined as all women physiologically capable of becoming pregnant, unless they are using highly effective methods of contraception during dosing and for 7 days after stopping treatment. Highly effective contraception methods include:
  • Total abstinence (when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the subject. Periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, post-ovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception
  • Female sterilization (have had surgical bilateral oophorectomy with or without hysterectomy) or tubal ligation at least six weeks before taking study treatment. In case of oophorectomy alone, only when the reproductive status of the woman has been confirmed by follow up hormone level assessment
  • Male sterilization (at least 6 months prior to screening). For female subjects on the study the vasectomized male partner should be the sole partner for that subject
  • Combination of any two of the following (a+b or a+c, or b+c):

    • Use of oral, injected or implanted hormonal methods of contraception or other forms of hormonal contraception that have comparable efficacy (failure rate ≤ 1%), for example hormone vaginal ring or transdermal hormone contraception
    • Placement of an intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS)
    • Barrier methods of contraception: Condom or Occlusive cap (diaphragm or cervical/vault caps) with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/vaginal suppository
    • In case of use of oral contraception women should have been stable on the same pill for a minimum of 3 months before taking study treatment.
  • Women are considered post-menopausal and not of child bearing potential if they have had 12 months of natural (spontaneous) amenorrhea with an appropriate clinical profile (e.g., age appropriate, history of vasomotor symptoms) or have had surgical bilateral oophorectomy (with or without hysterectomy) or tubal ligation at least six weeks ago. In the case of oophorectomy alone, only when the reproductive status of the woman has been confirmed by follow up hormone level assessment is she considered not of child bearing potential
  • Sexually active males unless they use a condom during intercourse while taking drug and for 7 days after stopping treatment and should not father a child in this period. A condom is required to be used also by vasectomized men in order to prevent delivery of the drug via seminal fluid
