Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to learn whether the study drug (capmatinib) helps to control lung cancer better compared to a single agent chemotherapy (docetaxel) and whether it is safe when given to patients suffering from a particular type of lung cancer. This type of cancer is called non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with certain specific genetic alterations (called mutations) of a gene called MET, within a specific part of the gene called exon 14.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Carcinoma, Non-Small-Cell Lung Drug: Capmatinib Drug: Docetaxel Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Approximately 90 patients with advanced or metastatic lung cancer, with these specific mutations in the MET gene but without changes in their epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) or anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) genes, will be enrolled in this study. Participants will be randomly assigned to get either capmatinib or docetaxel in a 2 to 1 ratio. The randomization will be stratified by prior lines of systemic therapy received for advanced/metastatic disease (one line vs. two lines).

During treatment, visits will be scheduled every 21 days.

For all participants, the respective treatment (either with capmatinib or docetaxel) may be continued beyond initial disease progression as per RECIST 1.1 (as assessed by the investigator and confirmed by BIRC) if, in the judgment of the investigator, there is evidence of clinical benefit, and the participant wishes to continue on the study treatment. After treatment discontinuation, all participants will be followed for safety evaluations during the safety follow-up period, and the participant's status will be collected every 12 weeks as part of the survival follow-up.

Participants randomized to docetaxel treatment will be eligible to crossover to receive capmatinib treatment after BIRC-confirmed, RECIST 1.1-defined progressive disease and after meeting the eligibility criteria prior to crossover.

    EORTC-QLQ-C30 is a 30-item questionnaire developed to assess the quality of life of cancer patients. The questionnaire is composed of both multi-item scales and single-item measures based on the participants experience over the past week. These include five domains (physical, role, emotional, cognitive and social functioning), three symptom scales (fatigue, nausea/vomiting, and pain), six single items (dyspnea, insomnia, appetite loss, constipation, diarrhea and financial impact) and a global health status/HRQoL scale. All of the scales and single-item measures range in score from 0 to 100. A high scale score represents a higher response level.

Change from baseline in score as per European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Quality of Life Lung Cancer Module (QLQ-LC13) [ Time Frame: Cycle (C) 1 Day (D) 1, C3 D1 and then every 6 weeks up to approximately 21 months, end of treatment and 6, 12 , 18 weeks post treatment . Each cycle duration is 21 days. ]

    EORTC QLQ-LC13 is a 13-item lung cancer specific questionnaire. The five domains of the questionnaire include pain, dyspnea, coughing and hemoptysis, and are based on their presence over the past week. All but the pain domain are scored on a 4 point Likert scale ranging from "not at all" to "very much". Pain is score based on its presence, hence yes or no. A higher score indicates a higher presence of symptoms.

    Change from baseline in EORTC QLQ-LC13 scores will be assessed


  18. Change from baseline in score as per European Quality of Life 5-Dimension 5-Level (EQ-5D-5L) questionnaire [ Time Frame: Cycle (C) 1 Day (D) 1, C3 D1 and then every 6 weeks up to approximately 21 months, end of treatment and 6, 12 , 18 weeks post treatment . Each cycle duration is 21 days. ]

    EQ-5D-5L is a standardized measure to assess the overall health-related quality of life in patients. The EQ-5D-5L consists of 2 parts- the descriptive system and the EQ visual analogue scale (EQ VAS). The descriptive system comprises 5 dimensions (mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort, and anxiety/depression), each with 5 levels: from 1 (no problems) to 5 (extreme problems). The EQ VAS is a self-perceived health score assessed using a visual analogue scale that ranges from 0 (the worst imaginable health) to 100 (the best imaginable health), with higher scores indicating higher health utility.

    Change from baseline in EQ-5D-5L scores will be assessed


  19. Time to symptom deterioration for chest pain, cough and dyspnea assessed using European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Quality of Life Lung Cancer Module (QLQ-LC13) [ Time Frame: Cycle (C) 1 Day (D) 1, C3 D1 and then every 6 weeks up to approximately 21 months, end of treatment and 6, 12 , 18 weeks post treatment. Each cycle duration is 21 days. ]

    EORTC QLQ-LC13 is a 13-item lung cancer specific questionnaire. The five domains of the questionnaire include pain, dyspnea, coughing and hemoptysis, and are based on their presence over the past week. All but the pain domain are scored on a 4 point Likert scale ranging from "not at all" to "very much". Pain is score based on its presence, hence yes or no. A higher score indicates a higher presence of symptoms.

    Time to symptom deterioration for chest pain, cough and dyspnea will be assessed


  20. Time to deterioration for global health status /QoL assessed using European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) Quality of Life Questionnaire (QLQ)-C30 [ Time Frame: Cycle (C) 1 Day (D) 1, C3 D1 and then every 6 weeks up to approximately 21 months, end of treatment and 6, 12 , 18 weeks post treatment. Each cycle duration is 21 days. ]

    EORTC-QLQ-C30 is a 30-item questionnaire developed to assess the quality of life of cancer patients. The questionnaire is composed of both multi-item scales and single-item measures based on the participants experience over the past week. These include five domains (physical, role, emotional, cognitive and social functioning), three symptom scales (fatigue, nausea/vomiting, and pain), six single items (dyspnea, insomnia, appetite loss, constipation, diarrhea and financial impact) and a global health status/HRQoL scale. All of the scales and single-item measures range in score from 0 to 100. A high scale score represents a higher response level.

    Time to deterioration in QoL from EORTC-QLQ-C30 will be assessed.

Treatment failure is defined as documented disease progression or intolerance to treatment., however participants must have progressed on or after the last therapy before study entry.
