Description

Summary

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab in combination with concurrent chemoradiation therapy followed by either pembrolizumab with olaparib placebo (Arm 1) or with olaparib (Arm 2) compared to concurrent chemoradiation therapy followed by durvalumab (Arm 3) in participants with unresectable, locally advanced NSCLC. Arms 1 and 2 will be studied in a double-blind design and Arm 3 will be open-label. The primary hypotheses are: 1. Pembrolizumab with concurrent chemoradiation therapy followed by pembrolizumab with olaparib is superior to concurrent chemoradiation therapy followed by durvalumab with respect to progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) 2. Pembrolizumab with concurrent chemoradiation therapy followed by pembrolizumab is superior to concurrent chemoradiation therapy followed by durvalumab with respect to PFS and OS

Official Title

A Phase 3 Study of Pembrolizumab (MK-3475) in Combination With Concurrent Chemoradiation Therapy Followed by Pembrolizumab With or Without Olaparib vs Concurrent Chemoradiation Therapy Followed by Durvalumab in Participants With Unresectable, Locally Advanced, Stage III Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

Eligibility

You can join if…

Open to people ages 18 years and up

  • Has pathologically (histologically or cytologically) confirmed diagnosis of NSCLC
  • Has Stage IIIA, IIIB, or IIIC NSCLC by American Joint Committee on Cancer Version 8
  • Is unable to undergo surgery with curative intent for Stage III NSCLC
  • Has no evidence of metastatic disease indicating Stage IV NSCLC
  • Has measurable disease as defined by RECIST 1.1
  • Has not received prior treatment (chemotherapy, targeted therapy or radiotherapy) for Stage III NSCLC; participants who have received neoadjuvant and/or adjuvant therapy for early stage disease are not eligible
  • Has provided a tumor tissue sample (tissue biopsy [core, incisional, or excisional])
  • Has an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of 0 or 1 assessed within 7 days prior to the first administration of study intervention
  • Has a life expectancy of at least 6 months
  • A male participant must agree to use contraception and refrain from donating sperm during the intervention period and for at least the time needed to eliminate each study intervention after the last dose of study intervention unless confirmed to be azoospermic (vasectomized or secondary to medical cause). The length of time required to continue contraception for each study intervention is as follows: Olaparib, platinum doublet, and radiotherapy: 90 days
  • A female participant is eligible to participate if she is not pregnant, not breastfeeding, and agrees to use contraception and refrain from donating eggs (ova, oocytes) to others or freeze/store for her own use for the purpose of reproduction during the treatment period and for at least the time needed to eliminate each study intervention after the last dose of study intervention and agrees to abstain from breastfeeding during the study intervention period and for at least 120 days after the last dose of study intervention. The length of time required to continue contraception for each study intervention is as follows: Pembrolizumab: 120 days; Olaparib, platinum doublet, and radiotherapy: 180 days
  • Has a negative highly sensitive pregnancy test ([urine or serum] as required by local regulations) within 24 hours for urine or within 72 hours for serum before the first dose of study intervention. If a urine test cannot be confirmed as negative (e.g., an ambiguous result), a serum pregnancy test is required. In such cases, the participant must be excluded from participation if the serum pregnancy result is positive.
  • Has had her medical history, menstrual history, and recent sexual activity reviewed by the investigator to decrease the risk for inclusion of a woman with an early undetected pregnancy.
  • Has adequate pulmonary function tests
  • Has adequate organ function
  • Has provided written informed consent

  • Has myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)/acute myeloid leukemia (AML) or has features suggestive of MDS/AML
  • Has had documented weight loss >10% (from baseline) in the preceding 3 months
  • Has received prior radiotherapy to the thorax, including radiotherapy to the esophagus, mediastinum, or for breast cancer
  • Has received prior therapy with an anti-programmed cell death 1 (ant-PD-1), anti-programmed cell death ligand 1 (anti-PD-L1), or anti- programmed cell death ligand 2 (anti-PD-L2) agent or with an agent directed to another stimulatory or co-inhibitory T-cell receptor
  • Has received prior therapy with olaparib or with any other polyadenosine 5'diphosphoribose (polyADP ribose) polymerization (PARP) inhibitor
