Study of Capmatinib and Spartalizumab/Placebo in Advanced NSCLC Patients With MET Exon 14 Skipping Mutations

Official Title

A Double-blind, Placebo Controlled, Randomized, Phase II Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Capmatinib and Spartalizumab vs Capmatinib and Placebo as 1st Line Treatment for Advanced NSCLC Patients With MET exon14 Skipping Mutations


A double-blind, placebo controlled, randomized, phase II study evaluating the efficacy and safety of capmatinib (INC280) and spartalizumab (PDR001) combination therapy versus capmatinib and placebo as first line treatment for locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with MET exon 14 skipping (METΔex14) mutations

Trial Description

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of capmatinib in combination with spartalizumab in treatment naive patients with EGFR wild-type, ALK rearrangement negative advanced NSCLC, harboring METΔex14 mutations.

A run-in part (Part 1) will be conducted to determine the anti-tumor activity and safety of capmatinib in combination with spartalizumab. Upon review of safety data and confirmation of anti-tumor activity in Part 1, the randomized part (Part 2) will be initiated to compare the efficacy and safety of capmatinib plus spartalizumab to capmatinib plus placebo.

Combined treatment of METΔex14 mutated NSCLC with capmatinib and spartalizumab is expected to result in improved efficacy compared to each single agent due to direct targeting of an oncogenic driver (MET) as well as more efficient stimulation of an anti-tumor immune response than with PD-1 blockade alone.
