The goal of this research is to learn if receiving local consolidation therapy (LCT-- surgery, radiation, or a combination of radiation and surgery) after receiving osimertinib can help to control non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) compared to continued treatment with osimertinib alone. The safety of this treatment will also be studied. This is an investigational study. Osimertinib is FDA approved and commercially available for the treatment of NSCLC. It is considered investigational to give surgery and/or radiation after osimertinib to patients with NSCLC. Up to 143 participants will be enrolled in this multicenter study. Up to 143 may take part at MD Anderson.

Official Title

Randomized Phase II Trial of Local Consolidation Therapy (LCT) After Osimertinib for Patients With EGFR Mutant Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)


Study Groups and Study Drug Administration:

If you are found to be eligible to take part in this study, you will be randomly assigned (as in the flip of a coin) to 1 of 2 groups. This is done because no one knows if one group is better, the same, or worse than the other.

  • Group 1 will receive LCT after treatment with osimertinib. The study doctor will decide if you will have radiation alone, surgery alone, or radiation combined with surgery. However, if the doctor thinks it is in your best interest, you may be able to continue taking osimertinib in addition to LCT.
  • Group 2 will not receive LCT after osimertinib. Instead, you will continue treatment with osimertinib.

All participants will take osimertinib by mouth every day for about 6-12 weeks as part of your standard care. This is called Induction Therapy.

Group 1:

Depending on what the study doctor thinks is in your best interest, you will receive surgery, radiation, or both after you complete Induction Therapy.

  • If you have surgery, you will be given a separate consent form to sign that describes the surgical procedure and its risks in more detail. The type of surgery you will have will depend on the status of the disease and what the doctor thinks is in your best interest. If you are also receiving osimertinib, you will need to stop taking it for about 7 days before surgery.
  • If you have radiation therapy, about 1-2 weeks before you begin radiation therapy, you will have a procedure called a simulation. During the simulation, the exact location for the radiation therapy will be planned. The simulation procedure takes about 1 hour. You will receive radiation every day for 5 days in a row(Monday through Friday) up to 8 weeks, depending on the location and status of the disease. The radiation only takes a few minutes to administer each day. However, you should expect to stay in the clinic for 1 hour each day. You will be given a separate consent form to sign that describes the radiation therapy and its risks in more detail. The type of radiation therapy you will have will depend on the status of the disease.

If you have both radiation therapy and surgery, the study doctor will tell you which you will have first.

Group 2:

You will continue to take osimertinib by mouth every day.

Length of Treatment:

You may continue receiving osimertinib or as long as the doctor thinks it is in your best interest. If you are in Group 1, you may receive surgery one (1) time and/or radiation therapy for up to 8 weeks. You will no longer be able to receive the study treatment if the disease gets worse, if intolerable side effects occur, or if you are unable to follow study directions.

Your participation on the study will be over after the follow-up visits.

Study Visits:

About every 4 weeks during Induction Therapy:

  • You will have a physical exam.
  • Blood (about 2 teaspoons) will be drawn for routine tests.
  • You will have an EKG.

About every 8 weeks:

  • You will have a physical exam.
  • Blood (about 2 teaspoons) will be drawn for routine tests.
  • You will have an EKG.

Every 8 weeks during Induction Therapy and then every 8 weeks after that, you will have a CT or PET/CT scan to check the status of the disease.

Every 3 months, you will have an ECHO or MUGA scan.

Follow-Up Visits:

Within 30 days after study treatment:

  • You will have a physical exam.
  • Blood (about 2 teaspoons) will be drawn for routine tests.
  • You will have an EKG.

Long-Term Follow-Up:

Every 6 months, you will be asked how you are doing and if you have had any side effects. This may be done by collecting information from your medical record or the study staff may call you. If you are called, this call should last about 5-10 minutes.

If you stopped the study treatment for reasons other than the disease getting worse, you will continue to have CT or PET/CT scans as described above. If the disease get worse, you will stop having these scans; although the study doctor may ask you to have another CT or PET/CT scan as part of your standard care if needed.

NOTE: Acceptable methods of contraception include total and true sexual abstinence, hormonal contraceptives that are not prone to drug-drug interactions (IUS Levonorgestrel Intra Uterine System (Mirena), Medroxyprogesterone injections (Depo-Provera)), copper-banded intra-uterine devices, and vasectomized partner. All hormonal methods of contraception should be used in combination with the use of a condom by their sexual male partner. Females of childbearing potential are defined as those who are not surgically sterile (ie, bilateral tubal ligation, bilateral oophorectomy, or complete hysterectomy) or postmenopausal (defined as 12 months with no menses without an alternative medical cause).
  11. . Continued from #10: Women will be considered post-menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for the past 12 months without an alternative medical cause. The following age-specific requirements must also apply: Women < 50 years old: they would be considered post-menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for the past 12 months or more following cessation of exogenous hormonal treatments. The levels of Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) must also be in the post-menopausal range (as per the institution). Women >/= 50 years old: they would be consider post-menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for the past 12 months or more following cessation of all exogenous hormonal treatments, or have had radiation-induced oophorectomy with the last menses > 1 year ago, or have had chemotherapy-induced menopause with >1 year interval since last menses, or have had surgical sterilization by either bilateral oophorectomy or hysterectomy.
  12. . 10. Non-sterilized males who are sexually active with a female partner of childbearing potential must use adequate contraception for the duration of the study and 3 month after the last dose of study medication. Adequate contraception methods include: birth control pills (eg combined oral contraceptive pill), barrier protection (eg condom plus spermicide, cervical/vault cap or intrauterine device), and abstinence. Patients should not father a child for 6 months after completion of the study medication. Patients should refrain from donating sperm from the start of dosing until 6 months after discontinuing the study medication. If male patients wish to father children they should be advised to arrange for freezing of sperm samples prior to the start of the study medication.
  13. . Life expectancy >=12 weeks
  14. . To be eligible for randomization, patients must: (a) Meet all the inclusion criteria; (b) Have no progression of disease after 6-12 weeks of osimertinib per RECIST 1.1.

  14. . Patients will be excluded from randomization if they meet any of the following criteria: (a) Any of the exclusion criteria; (b) Complete response to osimertinib or prior treatment to all visible lesions, such that no lesion is amenable to LCT. Note that patients can receive palliative radiation therapy prior to randomization to CNS lesions or those requiring urgent treatment (e.g. for pain or bleeding), but are only eligible for the study if they have one site amenable to further radiation therapy. In addition, these lesions will be counted towards the total number of metastases, and will also be counted as target lesions.
