The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetics, establish a recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) regimens, and to assess the preliminary efficacy of JNJ-61186372 in participants with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Official Title

A Phase 1, First-in-Human, Open-Label, Dose Escalation Study of JNJ-61186372, a Human Bispecific EGFR and cMet Antibody, in Subjects With Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer


This open label (all participants know the identity of the study drug), multicenter (more than one study site), first-in-human study consists of 2 parts. Part 1 is a dose escalation and Part 2 is a dose expansion cohort. In Part 1, participants with evaluable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) will be enrolled into cohorts at increasing dose levels of JNJ-61186372, which will be administered in 28 day treatment cycles. The dose will be escalated until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD, or maximum administered dose [MAD], if no MTD is found) is reached. Part 1 will follow a traditional 3+3 design. At each dose level, 3 participants will complete Cycle 1. If no dose limiting toxicity (DLT) occurs in these 3 participants, then escalation will continue in a new cohort of 3 participants. Data from Part 1 will be used to determine one or more recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) regimen(s). In Part 2, participants with documented epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations and measurable disease, whose disease has progressed after previous treatment will be enrolled and receive JNJ-61186372 at the RP2D determined in Part 1. For both parts, the study consists of following periods: an optional pre-Screening period; a Screening period (up to 28 days prior to the first dose of study drug); a Treatment period (first dose of study drug until 30 days after the last dose of study drug); and a Follow Up period (approximately 6 months). All participants will be followed for survival in the post-treatment follow-up period until the end of study and safety will be monitored throughout the study.

Open to people ages 18 years and up

  • Participant must have histologically or cytologically confirmed non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that is metastatic or unresectable. Participants must have either progressed after receiving prior therapy for metastatic disease, or be ineligible for, or have refused all other currently available therapeutic options
  • For Part 2 only: Participants must also have disease with a previously diagnosed activating epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation (includes both inhibitor sensitive primary mutations such as Exon 19 deletion and L858R [Cohort C and MET-1], as well as marketed tyrosine kinase inhibitor [TKI] -resistant mutations such as Exon 20 insertion [Cohort C, D and MET-1]) or activating cMet Exon 14 skipping mutation [Cohort MET-2]. Documentation of primary activating EGFR or cMet mutation eligibility by CLIA-certified laboratory (or equivalent) testing is required
  • For Part 1: Participant must have evaluable disease. For Part 2: Participant must have measurable disease according to Response Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) v1.1
  • For Part 2: Cohorts A and B: Participants EGFR mutated disease must have most recently progressed following treatment with a marketed EGFR inhibitor. Exception: In participants diagnosed with mutations associated with de novo EGFR inhibitor resistance (for example, Exon 20 insertions), only previous treatment with combination platinum-based chemotherapy is required. Cohort C: Participants with primary EGFR mutated disease, with a documented EGFR alteration (example, C797S) mediating resistance to previous treatment with a third generation EGFR TKI (for example, osimertinib), in participants with primary Exon 20ins disease, the documented EGFR alteration may arise following treatment with a TKI with known activity against Exon 20ins disease (for example, poziotinib). Cohort D: participants must have been previously diagnosed with an EGFR Exon 20 insertion and have not been previously treated with a TKI with known activity against Exon 20ins disease (exampe, poziotinib). Cohort MET-1: Participants with documented primary EGFR mutated disease and documented MET amplification or mutation after progression on any EGFR TKI. Participants with disease characterized by both MET amplification and EGFR resistance mutations to prior third generation EGFR TKI will be enrolled into Cohort C. Cohort

MET-2: Participants with documented primary MET Exon 14 skipping mutation non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)

  • Participant must have Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0 or 1

You CAN'T join if...

  • Participant has uncontrolled inter-current illness, including but not limited to poorly controlled hypertension, or diabetes, ongoing or active infection, (that is, has discontinued all antibiotics for at least one week prior to first dose of JNJ-61186372), or psychiatric illness/social situation that would limit compliance with study requirements. Participants with medical conditions requiring chronic continuous oxygen therapy are excluded
  • Participant has had prior chemotherapy, targeted cancer therapy, immunotherapy, or treatment with an investigational anticancer agent within 2 weeks or 4 half-lives whichever is longer, before the first administration of JNJ-61186372. For agents with long half-lives, the maximum required time since last dose is 4 weeks. Toxicities from previous anticancer therapies should have resolved to baseline levels or to Grade 1 or less, (except for alopecia [any grade], Grade less than or equal to [<=] 2 peripheral neuropathy, and Grade less than [<] 2 hypothyroidism stable on hormone replacement).

For Part 2 only: Cohorts A and B: Prior treatment with chemotherapy for metastatic disease is not allowed unless the tumor mutation carries de-novo resistance to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) (example, Exon 20 insertions). Cohort C, MET-1, and

MET-2: Prior treatment with more than 2 lines of cytotoxic chemotherapy for metastatic disease (maintenance therapy is not included). Cohort D: Previous treatment with an EGFR TKI with activity against EGFR Exon 20 insertions (such as poziotinib)

  • Participants with untreated brain metastases. Participants with treated metastases that are clinically stable and asymptomatic for at least 2 weeks and who are off or receiving low-dose corticosteroid treatment (<=10 mg prednisone or equivalent) for at least 2 weeks prior to study treatment are eligible
  • Participant has a history of malignancy other than the disease under study within 3 years before Screening (exceptions are squamous and basal cell carcinomas of the skin and carcinoma in situ of the cervix, or malignancy that in the opinion of the investigator, with concurrence with the sponsor's medical monitor, is considered cured with or minimal risk of recurrence within a year from Screening)
  • Participant has not fully recovered from major surgery or significant traumatic injury prior the first dose of study drug or expects to have major surgery during the study period or within 6 months after the last dose of study drug
