LUME-BioNIS clinical trial

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 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



Nintedanib 200 mg + Docetaxel 75 mg/m² Oral twice daily (Days 2–21 of every 3-week cycle) + Intravenous (Day 1)


Primary outcome measure:

Overall survival in relation to exploratory biomarker assessment, including general expression profile, tumour genomic alterations and protein analysis

Trial Status

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.
