A Randomized, Open Label, Multicenter Phase II Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Capmatinib (INC280) Plus Pembrolizumab Versus Pembrolizumab Alone as First Line Treatment for Locally Advanced or Metastatic Non-small Cell Lung Cancer With PD-L1≥ 50%
All compounds are either investigational or being studied for (a) new use(s). Efficacy and safety have not been established. There is no guarantee that they will become commercially available for the use(s) under investigation.
The purpose is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the combination of capmatinib with pembrolizumab compared to pembrolizumab alone as first-line treatment for subjects with locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC who have PD-L1 expression ≥ 50% and have no EGFR mutation or ALK rearrangement. Capmatinib has demonstrated immunomodulatory activities when combined with an anti-PD1 antibody in preclinical tumor models irrespective of MET dysregulation. The combination of capmatinib with checkpoint inhibitors has been established to be tolerable and could provide additional clinical benefit to the subjects.
