Title: A Phase II Study of Lorlatinib (PF-06463922) in Advanced Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) and ROS Proto-Oncogene 1 (ROS1) Rearranged Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) With Central Nervous System (CNS) Metastasis in the Absence of Measurable Extracranial Lesions1

Principal Investigator: Alice T. Shaw, MD, PhD, Massachusetts General Hospital

Description: For this open-label, phase 2 study, researchers are assessing the safety and efficacy of lorlatinib — a novel tyrosine kinase inhibitor — among patients with ROS1 and ALK mutation–positive non–small lung cancer (NSCLC) that has metastasized to the central nervous system (CNS).

Patients will receive oral lorlatinib once daily for 3 week cycles for up to 12 weeks.

The primary outcome is intracranial disease control rate, which will be assessed after 12 weeks. Secondary outcomes include median intracranial progression-free survival (PFS), time to intracranial progression, median intracranial duration of response, median extra-cranial PFS, median overall survival, toxicity assessments, and intracranial objective response rate.

The estimated study enrollment is 30 patients.

Status: Open and recruiting patients as of November 29, 2017.

This study is sponsored by the Massachusetts General Hospital.
