Scientific title

An Open Label, First-in-human Study of BAY 2927088 in Participants With Advanced Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Harboring an EGFR and/or HER2 Mutation


Researchers are looking for a better way to treat people who have advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), a group of lung cancers that have spread to nearby tissues or to other parts of the body. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) are proteins that help cells to grow and divide. A damage (also called mutation) to the building plans (genes) for these proteins in cancer cells leads to a production of abnormal EGFR and/or HER2. These abnormal proteins drive the growth and the spread of the cancer. Several EGFR and/or HER2 mutations exist in the cancer cells. Two mutations observed in NSCLC are called EGFR- or HER2exon20ins and EGFR C797X. The study treatment, BAY2927088, works by blocking the mutated EGFR protein and also its ex20ins version which are present in NSCLC. It is also believed to work against HER2 and HER2ex20ins mutations. Researchers think this may help stop the further spread of NSCLC cancer. This is the first time that researchers will study BAY2927088 in humans. In this study, the researchers want to learn more about using BAY2927088 in participants who have NSCLC with EGFR and/or HER2 mutations including EGFRex20ins and/or HER2ex20ins mutations. The main aims of this study are to find for BAY2927088 how safe BAY2927088 is how it affects the body (also referred to as tolerability) how BAY2927088 moves into, through and out of the body the maximum amount of BAY2927088 that the participants can take without too many side effects. The researchers will also study the action of BAY2927088 against the cancer. The study will have three parts: Dose Escalation, Backfill, and Dose Expansion. Each participant of the first, so called dose escalation part, will be assigned to one of specific sequential dose groups for BAY2927088. The amount of BAY2927088 that is given increases stepwise from one group to the next. The second may be initiated at any dose that has already been tested during the first part and found to be safe and to have either reached a predicted efficacious exposure range or to have induced an objective response. The first part and second part will run concurrently. The participants of the third, so called dose expansion part, will receive the most appropriate dose of BAY2927088 found in the first and second parts. The third part may be initiated in parallel with the first and second part based on emerging data. During the study, the participants will take the study treatment in 3 week periods called "cycles". They will in general take BAY2927088 once daily until their cancer gets worse, until they have medical problems, until they leave the study or until the study is terminated. Participants will have around 5 visits in each cycle. During the study, the study team will: take blood and urine samples take regular CT or MRI scans to check if the participants' cancer has gotten better or worse check the participants' overall health and heart health ask the participants questions about how they are feeling and what adverse events they are having. An adverse event is any medical problem that a participant has during a study. Doctors keep track of all adverse events that happen in studies, even if they do not think the adverse events might be related to the study treatments.

Documented histologically or cytologically confirmed locally advanced NSCLC, not suitable for definitive therapy or recurrent or metastatic NSCLC at screening (small cell or mixed histologies are excluded).Documented disease progression after treatment with at least one prior systemic therapy for advanced disease. Participants who do not have standard of care access due to any reason, are intolerant to, or are not eligible for standard treatments, may also be eligible. Adequate archival tumor tissue (ideally taken after last targeted treatment and not older than 6 months) has to be available, either from primary or metastatic sites. If archival material is not available, a fresh tumor biopsy should be performed if feasible and if the procedure poses no significant risk for the participant. Measurable disease by RECIST v1.1 with at least one lesion not chosen for biopsy during the screening period (if a biopsy is taken during screening) that can be accurately measured at baseline with computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and that is suitable for accurate repeated measurements. A biopsied lesion should not be used as a target lesion for RECIST 1.1 tumor assessments. Previously irradiated lesions must have shown progression to be considered measurable. Documented activating EGFR and/or HER2 mutation assessed by a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)-certified (United States [US] sites) or an equally accredited (outside of the US) local laboratory Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0 or 1. Minimum life expectancy of 12 weeks.
