Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: The primary objective of this study was to compare the progression-free survival (PFS) at 12 weeks between patients treated with IGF-1R pathway modulator AXL1717 (AXL) and patients treated with docetaxel (DCT).

MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study was conducted at 19 study centers in five countries. A total of 99 patients with previously treated, locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) of the squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) or adenocarcinoma (AC) subtypes in need of additional treatment were randomized and treated with either 300 or 400 mg of AXL as daily BID treatment (58 patients) or DCT given as 75 mg/m(2) in three-week cycles (41 patients) as monotherapy in a 3:2 ratio for each NSCLC subtype. Patients were treated in the primary study treatment period for a maximum of four treatment cycles.

RESULTS: The 12-week PFS rate, median PFS and overall survival (OS), as well Kaplan-Meier hazard ratio for PFS and OS, did not show any statistically significant differences between the treatment groups. For the primary endpoint, the AXL group had a lower percentage of patients (25.9%) who were progression-free at Week 12 as compared to the DCT group (39.0%), although the difference was not statistically significant. The most notable difference in the incidence of treatment emergent adverse effects (TEAEs) was the lower incidence of treatment-related grade 3/4 neutropenia in patients treated with AXL.

CONCLUSION: These results suggest neither of the treatments to be superior of the other when treating locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC. Considering the lower incidence of grade 3/4 neutropenia in the AXL group this treatment warrants further research.
