LUME BioNIS: a Biomarker Study of Nintedanib in Patients With NSCLC
A non-interventional biomarker study in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) of adenocarcinoma tumour histology eligible for treatment with nintedanib* (Vargatef®) plus docetaxel according to the approved label.
Trial CT.gov-Identifier: NCT02671422
Patients with locally advanced, metastatic or locally recurrent NSCLC of adenocarcinoma histology after failure of first-line chemotherapy
Nintedanib plus docetaxel is initiated and administered in accordance with the approved label
Available formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded tumour tissue routinely obtained at diagnosis and/or at re-biopsy prior to first-line treatment initiation
Primary outcome measure:
Overall survival in relation to exploratory biomarker assessment, including general expression profile, tumour genomic alterations and protein analysis
The LUME-BioNIS trial is a non-interventional biomarker study in patients who are eligible to receive nintedanib plus docetaxel as part of routine treatment and according to the approved label, i.e. have advanced adenocarcinoma NSCLC after failure of first-line chemotherapy. Mutation analysis of nintedanib target genes will be conducted, as well as evaluation of tumour protein expression and proliferation markers by immunohistochemistry. The study is being conducted at 86 mainly European sites and has finished recruitment.
