Phase 2 Study of Poziotinib in Patients With NSCLC Having EGFR or HER2 Exon 20 Insertion Mutation


Brief Summary

This is a Phase 2, open-label, multi-center study to evaluate the efficacy and the safety/tolerability of poziotinib in seven patient cohorts for up to 603 previously treated and treatment-naïve NSCLC patients. Cohorts 3 and 4 were added with Amendment 1 and three additional cohorts were added with Amendment 2 (Cohorts 5, 6 and 7).

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patient must be willing and capable of giving written Informed Consent, adhering to dosing and visit schedules, and meeting all study requirements
  • Patient has histologically or cytologically confirmed locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that is not amenable to treatment with curative intent
  • Prior treatment status:
    • Cohorts 1 and 2: Patient has had at least one prior systemic treatment for locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC
    • Cohorts 3 and 4: Patient is treatment-naïve for locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC and eligible to receive first-line treatment with poziotinib as determined by the Investigator. Adjuvant/neo-adjuvant therapies (chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or investigational agents) are permissible as long as they end at least 15 days prior to study entry.
    • Cohort 5: Patients who meet the criteria for enrollment in Cohorts 1 to 4, but the enrollment in the respective cohort has been closed
    • Cohort 6: Patients with EGFR mutation-positive NSCLC who progressed while on treatment with first-line osimertinib
    • Cohort 7: Patient has had at least one prior systemic treatment for locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC
  • Specific mutations:
    • Cohort 1 and 3: Documented EGFR exon 20 insertion mutation
    • Cohort 2 and 4: Documented HER2 exon 20 insertion mutation
    • Cohort 5: Documented EGFR or HER2 exon 20 insertion mutations
    • Cohort 6: Documented acquired EGFR mutation (tested after osimertinib progression)
    • Cohort 7: Documented EGFR or HER2 activating mutations
  • Patient has adequate organ function at Baseline

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patient has had previous treatment with poziotinib or any other EGFR or HER2 exon 20 insertion mutation-selective tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) prior to study participation. The currently approved TKIs (ie, erlotinib, gefitinib, afatinib, osimertinib) are not considered to be exon 20 insertion-selective and are permissible (Cohorts 1 and 2).
  • Patient is concurrently receiving chemotherapy, biologics, immunotherapy for cancer treatment; systemic anti-cancer treatment or investigational treatment should not be used within 2 weeks or 5 half lives, whichever is longer; local radiation therapy for bone pain may be allowed
  • Patient has had other malignancies within the past 3 years, except for stable non-melanoma skin cancer, fully-treated and stable, early-stage prostate cancer, or carcinoma in situ of the cervix or breast without need of treatment
  • Patient is pregnant or breast-feeding
