Summary
This is an open-label phase II clinical trial designed to allow a preliminary assessment of the efficacy and safety of cabozantinib in unselected Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) patients with metastases to the brain and in the subset of patients with c-MET amplified Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer with metastases to the brain. Previously treated patients with non-squamous NSCLC who have had brain metastases at any point in their treatment history are eligible for enrollment on this clinical trial. Patients with clinically asymptomatic untreated brain metastases will be allowed on trial at the discretion of the treating investigator. Patients who have undergone treatment for their brain metastases with Whole-Brain Radiation Therapy (WBRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) or surgery must be clinically stable and recovered from all procedures at the time of study enrollment.
Detailed Description
This is a Phase 2, single-arm, open-label study of cabozantinib in subjects with molecularly unselected Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) with metastases to the brain and in patients with c-MET amplified Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) with metastases to the brain.

Patients will receive cabozantinib at 60 mg orally once daily and continue on treatment until disease progression, death or unacceptable adverse events. Treatment cycles are 4 weeks in duration.

The primary endpoint is Overall Response Rate (ORR) in both the unselected NSCLC population and the molecularly selected patients on the basis of c-MET amplification.
Criteria for eligibility
Healthy Volunteers: No
Maximum Age: N/A
Minimum Age: 18 Years
Gender: Both
Criteria: Inclusion Criteria:

1. Previously treated patients with non-squamous NSCLC who have had brain metastases at any point in their treatment history are eligible for enrollment on this clinical trial. (Patients must have received at least one regimen for systemic disease which may be cytotoxic or oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy.)

- Patients with clinically asymptomatic untreated brain metastases will be allowed on trial at the discretion of the treating physician

- Patients who have undergone treatment for their brain metastases with whole brain radiotherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, or surgical resection must be clinically stable and recovered from all procedures at the time of study enrollment.

2. Patients must have tumor tissue available for submission that is sufficient to complete c-MET Fluorescence in Situ Hybridization (FISH) studies as well as routine molecular profiling at the UPMC. Patients must agree to submission of these specimens as defined in Section 9.

- c-MET amplification will be determined by FISH ratio (c-MET/CEP7) > 2.0, based on testing of the primary tumor and/or site of metastatic disease

- Patients' tumors must undergo testing for Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) exon 19 deletion, EGFR exon 21 L858R substitution, and anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) rearrangements. If positive, patients must have been treated with an appropriate tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) prior to enrolling to the study.

3. The subject has had an assessment of all extracranial disease sites (e.g., by computerized tomography (CT) scan, positron emission tomography-CT, and bone scan as appropriate) within 28 days before the first dose of cabozantinib.

4. The subject must have a baseline brain MRI scan or CT scan of the head (in patients unable to obtain an MRI) within 14 days prior to first dose of cabozantinib.

- Patients receiving glucocorticoids must be on a stable dose of glucocorticoids during the 5 days prior to the baseline brain imaging.
