Trial Overview Read MoreRead more

This phase I/II trial is trying to understand whether alternating between two targeted therapies will improve treatment outcomes for patients with ALK-rearranged non-small cell lung cancer.
 

This trial is treating patients with ALK-rearranged non-small cell lung cancer.

This is a systemic therapy trial.

You may be able to join this trial if:

  • You have had treatment but your cancer has gotten worse or has not responded to the treatment you have been given.

You may be excluded from this trial if:

  • You have a certain disease or psychological condition.

Scientific Title

A single arm multi-centre translational proof of concept study investigating the safety and efficacy of alternating lorlatinib with crizotinib in a pre-treated advanced ALK-rearranged non-small cell lung cancer population with disease progression on a 2nd generation ALK tyrosine kinase inhibitor

Commercial Sponsor

Pfizer

Summary

Eligible patients will receive induction therapy with oral lorlatinib, every day for 12 weeks. Participants will then move onto the alternating phase of the trial, in which patients will receive crizotinib for 4 weeks, then lorlatinib for 8 weeks, then crizotinib for another 4 weeks, and lorlatinib for 8 weeks until disease progression or unacceptable side effects are experienced/observed. Following progression, some participants may be eligible to continue with alternating treatment or switch to continuous treatment until further progression, depending on the potential clinical benefit.
