A Study of the Safety and Effectiveness of INC280 Alone and in Combination with Erlotinib, When Compared to Chemotherapy in Advanced or Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Patients with EGFR Mutation and Amplified cMET


About this study

The purpose of this study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose, the next recommended study dose, and the anti-tumor activity and safety of INC280 alone and in combination with erlotinib, when compared to standard platinum with pemetrexed chemotheapy in adult patients who have EGFR mutated and cMET amplified advanced/metastatic non-small cell lung cancer,and have acquired resistance to prior EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors.
