New Afatinib (BIBW 2992) Data in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Patients Presented at the 2010 ESMO Congress
Date:10/11/2010

  • The two most common side effects associated with treatment with afatinib were diarrhea (87% all grades, with 17% Grade 3) and rash/acne (79% all grades, with 14% Grade 3).  These side effects were usually well-managed by supportive care and dose reduction(2)

  • It is important to note that the overall study population, which included patients who received chemotherapy and one line of treatment with a first-generation EGFR inhibitor for at least 12 weeks, had a better performance status and lived longer than originally anticipated for patients with advanced NSCLC.  This information warrants further investigation of subpopulations in treatment of advanced NSCLC.

    LUX-Lung 2 Trial(3)

    Updated data from the phase II LUX-Lung 2 trial were also presented at the ESMO Congress.  The trial evaluated patients with advanced NSCLC who have EGFR mutations and were either untreated or progressed after one course of chemotherapy.  Analysis included the primary endpoint of objective response rate (ORR) as assessed by independent review.  Among 129 patients who received afatinib, the confirmed ORR by independent review was 57% and was similar to the confirmed ORR by investigator assessment (60%).  The secondary endpoints included OS (24 months), PFS (14 months) and disease control rate (86%).  The most common drug-related adverse events were diarrhea (95% all grades, with 19% Grade 3) and rash/acne (91% all grades, with 21% Grade 3).
