Intermittent and Maintenance of Icotinib in Combination With Pemetrexed/Carboplatin Compared With Icotinib Single Drug in Ⅲb/IV Non Small Cell Lung Cancer With Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) Mutation

NCT03151161

Description:

EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitor(TKI)- ie, erlotinib, gefitinib, icotinib,has been recommended as the first option for EGFR-mutated IIIb/IV NSCLC by serial trials as it prolonged patients' progression-free survival. The OPTIMAl trial indicated that those who received TKI and chemotherapy during the whole treatment window survived longest. Unfortunately, previous studies(INTACT, TRIBUTE et al) that concurrently combined TKI and cytotoxic regimens failed to improve survival in unselected patients. To avoid the potential synergistic antagonism, the FAST-ACT II trial committed a sequential strategy and find a superiority in the combination arm upon chemotherapy even in EGFR-mutated group. However, pharmaceutically, the continuous administration of an EGFR-TKI before subsequent chemotherapy in FAST-ACT II could obviate the effects of cytotoxic agents due to the erlotinib-induced G1 arrest. On the basis of these and other studies, the investigators hypothesized that a better sequential combination strategy of EGFR-TKI and chemotherapy (adding a EGFR-TKI wash-out window before chemotherapy) would be more efficacious than chemotherapy alone. In this study, the investigators investigate the efficacy(PFS:progression free survival), safety, and adverse-event profile of chemotherapy plus intermittent and maintenance of icotinib compared with icotinib single drug, when these drugs were used as first-line treatment in who had non-squamous lung carcinoma with EGFR gene mutation in China.

Eligibility Criteria

        Inclusion Criteria:

          -  Present with histologically proven diagnosis of non-Squamous NSCLC Stage IIIB or IV as
             defined by the American Joint Committee on Cancer Staging Criteria for Lung Cancer,
             that is not amenable to curative therapy, such as surgery or radiotherapy and so on.

          -  Confirmed activating mutation of EGFR—ie, an exon 19 deletion or an exon 21 L858R
             point mutation.

          -  Measurable lesions according to RECIST 1.1 criteria.

          -  Patients between 18 and 75 years of age.

          -  Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group(ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1.
