Brief Summary:

Study Objectives are:

To assess the safety of osimertinib treatment continuation during irradiation therapy for palliation or oligoprogressive disease by assessment of grade 3-5 AEs during and after concomitant osimertinib and irradiation of tumor sites.

To assess the efficacy of osimertinib treatment continuation during irradiation therapy for palliation or oligoprogressive disease.

To investigate Quality of Life during and after irradiation therapy and concomitant osimertinib.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
NSCLC EGFR Positive Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Oligoprogression Drug: Osimertinib Radiation: Radiotherapy Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Many patients with advanced lung cancer require palliative irradiation of metastases to relieve symptoms and prevent local complications. In addition, guidelines recommend local treatment (including radiation) for oligoprogression during TKI treatment. Clinicians are faced with the decision whether to continue TKI therapy during irradiation, a practice for which there is little data, or to interrupt the oral treatment for the duration of radiation, which may lead to progression of non-irradiated lesions. For erlotinib and gefitinib there is some data indicating that cranial irradiation as well as stereotactic body irradiation may be carried out safely without discontinuing or interrupting the TKI treatment. Although some small case series report on a PFS benefit with irradiation during osimertinib treatment, there is very limited data on the safety of osimertinib during irradiation, and no evidence-based recommendations around stopping osimertinib for irradiation.

The hypothesis is that osimertinib can be continued without interruption during irradiation of individual tumor lesions in the setting of oligoprogressive NSCLC, or for local symptom control of primary tumor or metastasis.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Provision of written informed consent prior to any study specific procedures, including screening evaluations that are not SOC.
  2. Age ≥ 18 years at time of study entry.
  3. Histologically confirmed NSCLC
  4. Ongoing or planned osimertinib treatment according to marketing authorization (first line treatment of tumor positive for a common or uncommon EGFR mutation, or later line treatment of tumor positive for EGFR T790M mutation, assessed according to local standard. First line therapy is defined as therapy used to treat advanced disease. Each subsequent line of therapy is preceded by disease progression. A switch of an agent within a regimen in order to manage toxicity does not define the start of a new line of therapy. Experimental therapies when given as separate regimen are considered as separate line of therapy. Maintenance therapy following platinum doublet-based chemotherapy is not considered as a separate regimen of therapy.)
  5. Clinical indication for radiotherapy of one or more lesions, for instance for local symptom control of primary tumor or metastasis, for oligoprogressive metastasis, or for disease control with conventional or stereotactic strategy. Radiotherapy of metastatic sites can be for bone, solid organ or soft-tissue lesions; initial size of brain metastases should be < 3 cm. Lung lesions should be no more than 5 cm.
  6. ECOG performance status 0-2.
  7. Life expectancy ≥12 weeks
  8. Female subjects should be using highly effective contraceptive measures, and must have a negative pregnancy test and not be breast-feeding prior to start of dosing if of child-bearing potential or must have evidence of non-child-bearing potential by fulfilling one of the following criteria at screening:

    • Post-menopausal defined as aged more than 50 years and amenorrheic for at least 12 months following cessation of all exogenous hormonal treatments
    • Women under 50 years old would be considered postmenopausal if they have been amenorrheic for 12 months or more following cessation of exogenous hormonal treatments and with LH and FSH levels in the post-menopausal range for the institution.
    • Documentation of irreversible surgical sterilisation by hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy or bilateral salpingectomy but not tubal ligation
  9. Male subjects who are sexually active with WOCBP should be willing to use highly effective contraception. Men who are azoospermic do not require contraception.
  10. The patient is willing and able to comply with the protocol for the duration of the study, including hospital visits for treatment and scheduled follow-up visits and examinations.
  11. Negative COVID-19 test within 1 week prior to starting irradiation if clinically required by current regional COVID-19 outbreak situation.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Concurrent enrolment in another clinical study, unless it is an observational (non-interventional) clinical study, or during the follow-up period of an interventional study.

  3. Previous enrolment in the present study.
  4. Any chemotherapy, biologic or hormonal cancer therapy other than EGFR-TKIs used concurrently or within 4 weeks prior to study enrolment, or checkpoint inhibitors within 130 days prior to study enrolment. Hormonal therapy for non-cancer-related conditions (e.g., hormone replacement therapy) is acceptable.
  5. Any unresolved toxicities from prior therapy greater than grade I (exception: alopecia, grade 2 neuropathy) which in the investigator's opinion would jeopardise compliance with the protocol or worsen during irradiation

  12. Any evidence of severe or uncontrolled systemic diseases, including uncontrolled hypertension and active bleeding diatheses, which in the investigator's opinion makes it undesirable for the patient to participate in the trial or which would jeopardise compliance with the protocol, or active infection. Screening for chronic conditions is not required, inclusion of controlled chronic infections (e.g. HIV) is permitted. Participants with a resolved or chronic infection HBV are eligible at discretion of the treating physician.
  13. Past medical history of interstitial lung disease, drug-induced interstitial lung disease, radiation pneumonitis which required steroid treatment, or any evidence of clinically active interstitial lung disease.
  14. History of hypersensitivity to active or inactive excipients of osimertinib or drugs with a similar chemical structure or class to osimertinib.
