This phase IB trial aims to identify anticancer activity of GSK3052230 in subjects with
malignancies with abnormal dependence on FGF pathway signaling. Combination doses of
GSK3052230 with standard of care chemotherapy in the first and second line or greater setting
of metastatic squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and first line malignant pleural
mesothelioma subjects will be studied in the 3+3 dose-escalation design. This will be a
multi-arm, multicenter, non-randomized, parallel-group, uncontrolled, open-label Phase IB
study designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary activity of GSK3052230 in
combination with paclitaxel + carboplatin (Arm A), in combination with docetaxel (Arm B), or
in combination with pemetrexed + cisplatin (Arm C). Approximately 70 subjects will be
enrolled in the study (approximately up to 120 may be enrolled).
- Signed written informed consent
- Histologically or cytologically confirmed diagnosis: Arm A and B- stage IV recurrent
metastatic squamous NSCLC with Fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 (FGFR1) gene
amplification by central laboratory testing. Arm C- recurrent after local therapy or
unresectable MPM with measurable lesions.
For specific arms the following requirements:
Arm A: Subjects who have received no prior therapy for Stage IIIB or Stage IV or recurrent
metastatic disease. Note, to avoid any undue delay of initiating systemic chemotherapy for
these subjects with newly diagnosed metastatic disease, it is allowed to initiate the first
cycle of chemotherapy while eligibility for the study is still being determined, as long as
the first dose of GSK3052230 is given no later than Cycle 2 Day 1 of chemotherapy. In
addition, subjects with Stage IIIB or Stage IV disease and recurrence after previous NSCLC
that has been treated with surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy or a radio- chemotherapy
regimen with curative intent are eligible, provided 6 months has passed since this
Arm B: Subjects who have documented tumor progression (based on radiological imaging) or
intolerability after receiving at least one prior line of platinum containing combination
chemotherapy for Stage IIIB or Stage IV or recurrent metastatic disease. Note: Prior
treatment should not include docetaxel but may have included paclitaxel.
Arm C: Subjects who have received no prior systemic therapy for MPM.
- Availability of archival tumor tissue required for assessment of deregulated FGF pathway
signalling, but not limited to, FGFR1 amplification or FGF2 or FGFR1 expression. If
archival tissue is not available, a fresh biopsy is required. In Arms A and B, subjects
will be prospectively screened for FGFR1 gene amplification using a Fluorescence in situ
hybridization (FISH) assay for the dose expansion and the MTD/MFD cohorts only. For
inclusion in this study, based on the central laboratory testing, FGFR1 gene amplification
must meet one of the following criteria: a ratio of FGFR1/CEN 8 of >=2; or average number
of FGFR1 signals per tumor nucleus of >=6; or the percentage of tumor nuclei containing >=5
FGFR1 signals is >=50%.
In Arm C, FGF2 expression by IHC will be evaluated retrospectively in tissue samples by a
central laboratory and is not a requirement for study entry.
- Measurable disease per RECIST version 1.1 (Arm A and B) and modified RECIST for Arm C.
- Male or female >=18 years of age.
- Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test within 7
days of first dose of study treatment and agree to use effective contraception, from
14 days prior to the first dose of study treatment, throughout the study, and for 6
months following the last dose of chemotherapy or 4 weeks after the last dose of
GSK3052230, whichever is latest. .
- Men with a female partner of childbearing potential must have either had a prior
vasectomy or agree to use effective contraception for at least 2 weeks prior to
administration of the first dose of study treatment and for at least 6 months after
the last dose of chemotherapy to allow for clearance of any altered sperm.
- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of 0-1 for Arm A and C
subjects and 0-2 for Arm B.
- French subjects: In France, a subject will be eligible for inclusion in this study
only if either affiliated to or a beneficiary of a social security category

Absolute neutrophil count >=1.5 x 10^9/Liter, Hemoglobin >=9 gram (g)/decilitre(dL),
Platelets >=100 x 10^9/L, Partial thromboplastin time (PTT) <=1.25 x upper limit of
normal (ULN), Albumin >=2.5 g/dL, Serum total bilirubin <=1.25 times ULN (for Arm B:
<=ULN ), Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) <=2.5
times ULN (for Arm B: <=1.5 times ULN), Serum Creatinine <=1.5 x ULN, Or Measured or
Calculated Creatinine Clearance >=45 mL/min (Arm A or B), >=65 mL/min (Arm C), Left
ventricular ejection fraction >=50% by ECHO.

anti-cancer therapy (for biological anti-cancer therapies see criteria below) during
the preceding 4 weeks or within 4 half-lives of the therapy, whichever is longer.

carcinoma are eligible.
