I. To evaluate the overall response rate (ORR) (confirmed and unconfirmed, complete and
partial) associated with rucaparib in patients with genomic LOH high and/or deleterious
BRCA1/2 mutations within: Cohort 1: Patients with squamous cell histology or mixed histology
with a squamous component; Cohort 2: Patients with non-squamous histology (adenocarcinoma,
large cell, or non-small cell lung cancer [NSCLC] not otherwise specified [NOS]).
I. To evaluate investigator assessed progression-free survival (IA-PFS) and overall survival
(OS) associated with rucaparib within each cohort.
II. To evaluate duration of response among responders within each cohort. III. To evaluate
the frequency and severity of toxicities associated with rucaparib among all patients
enrolled on the study (combining cohorts).
TRANSLATIOAL MEDICINE OBJECTIVES:
I. To evaluate the association between alterations in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) repair
genes and response by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1.
II. To perform comprehensive next-generation sequencing of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) at
baseline in all patients to assess its clinical utility in comparison to tumor tissue
III. To establish a tissue/blood repository from patients with refractory non-small cell lung
Patients receive rucaparib orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-21. Courses repeat every
21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 1 year, and
then every 6 months for up to 3 years.

Patients must not have received any radiation therapy within 14 days prior to
- Patients must not be planning to receive any concurrent chemotherapy, immunotherapy,
biologic or hormonal therapy for cancer treatment while receiving treatment on this
study. Concurrent use of hormones for non-cancer-related conditions (e.g., insulin for
diabetes and hormone replacement therapy) is acceptable.
- Patients must have measurable disease documented by computed tomography (CT) or
magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The CT from a combined positron emission tomography
(PET)/CT may be used to document only non-measurable disease unless it is of
diagnostic quality. Measurable disease must be assessed within 28 days prior to
sub-study registration. Pleural effusions, ascites and laboratory parameters are not
acceptable as the only evidence of disease. Non-measurable disease must be assessed
within 42 days prior to sub-study registration. All disease must be assessed and
documented on the Baseline Tumor Assessment Form. Patients whose only measurable
disease is within a previous radiation therapy port must demonstrate clearly
progressive disease (in the opinion of the treating investigator) prior to
registration. CT and MRI scans must be submitted for central review via TRIAD.
- Patients must have a CT or MRI scan of the brain to evaluate for central nervous
system (CNS) disease within 42 days prior to sub-study registration. Patient must not
have leptomeningeal disease, spinal cord compression or brain metastases unless: (1)
metastases have been locally treated and have remained clinically controlled and
asymptomatic for at least 14 days following treatment, and prior to registration, AND
(2) patient has no residual neurological dysfunction and has been off corticosteroids
for at least 24 hours prior to sub-study registration.
- Patient must not have had a major surgery within 14 days prior to sub-study
registration. Patient must have fully recovered from the effects of prior surgery in
the opinion of the treating investigator.

- Patients must not be pregnant or nursing. Women/men of reproductive potential must
have agreed to use an effective contraceptive method during the study and 6 months

has had menses at any time in the preceding 12 consecutive months. In addition to
routine contraceptive methods, "effective contraception" also includes heterosexual
celibacy and surgery intended to prevent pregnancy (or with a side-effect of pregnancy
prevention) defined as a hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy or bilateral tubal
ligation. However, if at any point a previously celibate patient chooses to become
heterosexually active during the time period for use of contraceptive measures
outlined in the protocol, he/she is responsible for beginning contraceptive measures
during the study and 6 months after study completion
- Patients must agree to have blood specimens submitted for circulating tumor DNA
- Patients must also be offered participation in banking and in the correlative studies
for collection and future use of specimens.
