A Study to Evaluate Docetaxel With or Without Bintrafusp Alfa to Treat Patients with Advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

Overview

About this study

The purpose of this study is to compare the progression-free survival (PFS) of docetaxel in combination with bintrafusp alfa vs. docetaxel alone.

    • Received single agent anti-PD1/PD-L1 as first line therapy for metastatic disease.
  • Co-morbid systemic illnesses or other severe concurrent disease which, in the judgment of the investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into this study or interfere significantly with the proper assessment of safety and toxicity of the prescribed regimens.
  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to:
    • ongoing or active infection;
    • symptomatic congestive heart failure;
    • unstable angina pectoris;
    • cardiac arrhythmia;

  • Known primary central nervous system (CNS) malignancy or symptomatic CNS metastases are excluded, with the following exceptions:
    • Patients with asymptomatic untreated CNS disease may be enrolled, provided all of the following criteria are met:
    • Evaluable or measurable disease outside the CNS;
    • No metastases to brain stem, midbrain, pons, medulla, cerebellum, or within 10 mm of the optic apparatus (optic nerves and chiasm);

    • No stereotactic radiation or whole-brain radiation ≤ 28 days prior to registration;
    • Screening CNS radiographic study ≥ 4 weeks from completion of radiotherapy and ≥ 2 weeks from discontinuation of corticosteroids.
  • History of severe allergic, anaphylactic, or other hypersensitivity reactions to chimeric or humanized antibodies or fusion proteins.
