      Effective therapeutic strategies for mutant KRAS and other biomarkers of resistance in refractory NSCLC remain an unmet medical need, while a personalized medicine approach is increasingly adopted in NSCLC guided by tumor molecular profiling. The BATTLE-2 clinical study is using EGFR, PI3K/AKT and MEK inhibitors and is designed to identify biomarkers for optimal patient selection for these therapies ( NCT01248247).

      This is a four-arm, open-label, multi-center, biopsy-driven, adaptive randomization, phase II clinical trial in NSCLC pts that failed at least 1 prior line of therapy. Patients are adaptively randomized to 4 arms: erlotinib, erlotinib plus the AKT inhibitor MK-2206, MK-2206 plus the MEK inhibitor selumetinib, and sorafenib. The primary objective is 8-week disease control rate (DCR). The trial is conducted in 2 stages. In Stage 1, 200 evaluable pts are adaptively randomized (AR) based on observed 8-week DCR and KRAS mutation status while predictive biomarkers are being developed by means of gene expression profiling, targeted next generation sequencing and protein expression. EGFR sensitizing mutations and EML4/ALK translocation in pts that are erlotinib and crizotinib naïve are exclusion criteria, while erlotinib resistant patients are excluded from erlotinib monotherapy. In Stage 2, the AR model is refined to include the most predictive biomarkers tested in Stage 1, with subsequent Stage 2 AR based on the new algorithm, to a total of 400 evaluable pts. Selection of Stage 2 single and/or composite markers follows a rigorous, internally and externally reviewed statistical analysis that follows a training, testing methodology with validation in stage 2 of the trial. All Stage 1 and 2 randomization biomarker assays are CLIA-certified.

      286 pts have been enrolled, 236 biopsies performed,172 pts randomized, and 167 pts treated. 144 pts are evaluable for the 8-week DCR endpoint. Within the randomized pts group KRAS mutation rate is 22.8%, and EGFR mutation rate 14.8%, while 36.3% patients have been previously treated with erlotinib. Treatment is well tolerated with no unanticipated toxicity.

      Accrual updates, demographics, and further details will be presented at the meeting. (Supported by NCI R01CA155196-01A1)
