Overview

Study Title

A Phase 2 Study of MM-121 in Combination with Docetaxel or Pemetrexed versus Docetaxel or Pemetrexed Alone in Patients with Heregulin Positive, Locally Advanced or Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Summary

The main purpose of this study is to find out more about the side effects of MM-121 when combined with docetaxel or pemetrexed, and to learn if cancer cell growth (disease progression) is delayed in people taking MM-121 with docetaxel or pemetrexed. Researchers are also trying to learn about: - The level of MM-121 that remains in the human body at different time points when MM-121 is combined with docetaxel or pemetrexed - The relationship between the biomarker, heregulin, and cancer cell growth (disease progression) in people dosed only with docetaxel or pemetrexed. - Other biomarkers which are related to the biomarker for this study.

Objective

Primary - Interventional Group only: *To determine whether the combination of MM-121 plus docetaxel or pemetrexed is more effective than docetaxel or pemetrexed alone based on investigator assessed Progression Free Survival (PFS) according to RECIST 1.1 in HRG positive patients. Secondary - Interventional Group only: *To determine whether the combination of MM-121 plus docetaxel or pemetrexed is more effective than docetaxel or pemetrexed alone based on centrally assessed Progression Free Survival (PFS) according to RECIST 1.1 in HRG positive patients. *To determine whether the combination of MM-121 plus docetaxel or pemetrexed is more effective than docetaxel or pemetrexed alone based on Overall Survival (OS) in HRG positive patients. *To compare the efficacy of the combination of MM-121 plus docetaxel or pemetrexed to docetaxel or pemetrexed alone using local assessment: Objective response rate (ORR) based on RECIST 1.1; Duration of objective response. *To compare the efficacy of the combination of MM-121 plus docetaxel orpemetrexed to docetaxel or pemetrexed alone using central assessment: Objective response rate (ORR) based on RECIST 1.1; Duration of response. *To describe the safety profile of MM-121 in combination with docetaxel or pemetrexed. *To describe the pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of MM-121.
