Patients with EGFR mutant non-small cell lung cancer will receive the current optimal therapy
with osimertinib. After 8 weeks of targeted therapy, there will likely be some persisting
lesions that would not have completely regressed. These persisting lesions would likely
consist of cells that are less sensitive to targeted therapy. From the data summarized above
, these persisting lesions are most to subsequently develop resistance and demonstrate
To delay the onset of clinical progression, lesions that persist after 8 weeks of osimertinib
therapy and are amenable to stereotactic ablative radiation will be radiated. Osimertinib
will be held for 3 days before the first dose of radiation and resumed 3 days after the last
After radiation, all patients will continue osimertinib therapy. If subsequently there is any
evidence of progression, there will be an assessment of whether a repeat course of radiation
is feasible. If it is feasible to repeat SABR to sites of progression, this will be performed
and osimertinib resumed. If SABR is not possible, then a change in systemic therapy will be

- Patients currently receiving (or unable to stop use prior to receiving the first dose
of study treatment) medications or herbal supplements known to be potent inducers of
CYP3A4 (at least 3 week prior) (Appendix A). All patients must try to avoid
concomitant use of any medications, herbal supplements and/or ingestion of foods with
known inducer effects on CYP3A4.

exception of alopecia and grade 2, prior platinum-therapy related neuropathy.

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 including hepatitis B, hepatitis C
and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Screening for chronic conditions is not

events such as heart failure, hypokalemia, congenital long QT syndrome, family
history of long QT syndrome or unexplained sudden death under 40 years of age in
first degree relatives or any concomitant medication known to prolong the QT
- Refractory nausea and vomiting, chronic gastrointestinal diseases, inability to
