Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: June 1, 2017)
  • MTD of Afatinib in Combination With Cetuximab Based on the Number of Patients With DLTs During the First Treatment Cycle (Afatinib). [ Time Frame: First 21 days treatment cycle ]
    Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of Afatinib in combination with cetuximab based on the number of patients with dose limiting toxicity (DLT) during the first treatment cycle (Dose escalation part). The MTD is defined as the highest dose level at which less than 33% of the patients experience DLT in first treatment cycle.
  • Dose Limiting Toxicities During Cycle 1 [ Time Frame: First 21-day treatment cycle ]
    Number of Patients With Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT) Occurring during Cycle 1. The following drug related AEs qualified as DLT: 1) CTCAE Grade ≥2 decrease in cardiac left ventricular function 2) CTCAE Grade 2 diarrhoea lasting for ≥7 days, despite appropriate use of standard antidiarrheal therapy based on Protocol Amendment 1 dated 22 Oct 2013 3) CTCAE Grade ≥3 diarrhoea despite appropriate use of standard anti-diarrheal therapy for at least 2 days. 4) CTCAE Grade ≥3 nausea and/or vomiting despite appropriate use of standard anti-emetics for at least 3 days 5) CTCAE Grade ≥3 rash despite standard medical management. 6) CTCAE Grade ≥3 fatigue lasting more than 7 days. 7) All other AEs of CTCAE Grade ≥3 (except alopecia and allergic reaction) that led to an interruption of afatinib and/or cetuximab dosing for more than 14 days until recovery to baseline or Grade 1, whichever was higher. 8) CTCAE Grade 4 hypomagnesemia or Grade 3 hypomagnesemia with clinically-significant sequelae

Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: June 1, 2017)
  • Dose Limiting Toxicities During All Treatment Cycles [ Time Frame: All treatment cycle (each treatment cycle of 21 days) ]
    Number of patients with DLT occuring during all treatment cycle is presented
  • Recommended Phase II Dose Based on the Number of Patients With Dose Limiting Toxicity Events (Cetuximab) [ Time Frame: All treatment cycle (each treatment cycle of 21 days) ]
    MTD was deemed the recommended Phase II dose based on the number of patients with dose limiting toxicity events at all treatment cycles.
  • Best Overall Response [ Time Frame: Post baseline tumour-imaging was performed at every 6 weeks (in the week preceding the start of Cycles 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, etc.) until EOT; up to 19 months ]
    Best overall response (according to RECIST version 1.1) was defined as the best response recorded at any time from the first administration of afatinib or cetuximab to the End of Treatment (EOT). As Per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.0) for target lesions and assessed by MRI: Complete Response (CR), disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; progression, as a 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, or a measurable increase in a non-target lesion, or the appearance of new lesions; Stable Disease (SD), neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for disease progression.
  • Objective Response [ Time Frame: Post baseline tumour-imaging was performed at every 6 weeks (in the week preceding the start of Cycles 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, etc.) until EOT; up to 19 months ]
    Objective response was defined as the proportion of patients with measurable disease having at least a best overall response of complete response (CR) or partial response (PR), according to RECIST version 1.1. As Per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.0) for target lesions and assessed by MRI: Complete Response (CR), disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; progression, as a 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, or a measurable increase in a non-target lesion, or the appearance of new lesions; Stable Disease (SD), neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for disease progression.

    For patients with measurable disease, disease control was defined as the proportion of patients having at least a best overall response of CR, PR or stable disease (SD). As Per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.0) for target lesions and assessed by MRI: Complete Response (CR), disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; progression, as a 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, or a measurable increase in a non-target lesion, or the appearance of new lesions; Stable Disease (SD), neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for PR nor sufficient increase to qualify for disease progression
  • Recommended Phase II Dose Based on the Number of Patients With Dose Limiting Toxicity Events (Afatinib) [ Time Frame: All treatment cycle (each treatment cycle of 21 days) ]
    MTD was deemed the recommended Phase II dose based on the number of patients with dose limiting toxicity events at all treatment cycles.
