Trial Information

A Phase I/II Trial of Fixed Doses of Daily Gefitinib With Escalating Doses of Daily RAD001 in Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer


OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of everolimus when administered with gefitinib in
patients with stage IIIB or IV or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer. (Phase I)

- Determine the efficacy of this regimen in these patients. (Phase II)

Secondary

- Assess the pharmacokinetics of everolimus, alone and in combination with gefitinib, in
these patients. (Phase I)

OUTLINE: This is an open-label, phase I, dose-escalation study of everolimus followed by a
phase II study.

- Phase I: Patients receive oral everolimus once on day 1. Beginning on day 8, patients
receive oral gefitinib once daily. Beginning on day 22, patients receive oral
everolimus once daily. Both drugs are then given concurrently for the rest of the
treatment. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable
toxicity.

Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of everolimus until the maximum tolerated
dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose at which no more than 1 of 6
patients experiences dose-limiting toxicity.

- Phase II: Patients receive oral everolimus at the MTD determined in phase I and oral
gefitinib once daily. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or
unacceptable toxicity.
