      • Slides


      RELAY is a randomized, double-blind phase 1b/3 study investigating the efficacy and safety of the addition of ramucirumab (a human IgG1 monoclonal antibody that binds to Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) Receptor 2) to erlotinib (an EGFR TKI) in treatment-naïve EGFR-mutant metastatic NSCLC. Results from the Phase 1b cohort showed that combining ramucirumab with erlotinib was safe with encouraging clinical activity and a median PFS of 17.1mo (Reck et al., Clinical Lung Cancer 2017). While enrolment for the RELAY Phase 3 cohort has been completed, the RELAY+ cohort was recently added to explore the safety and efficacy of the combination of ramucirumab with gefitinib, a frequently used EGFR TKI in East Asia.

      RELAY+ is an open-label, 2-period, single-arm exploration of the efficacy and safety of the addition of ramucirumab to gefitinib in previously untreated East-Asian patients with EGFR mutation-positive metastatic NSCLC (Period 1) and of ramucirumab to osimertinib in patients whose disease progressed in Period 1 and harbors the T790M mutation (Period 2). The trial is planned to be conducted in Japan, Taiwan and South-Korea and is currently open for enrollment. Approximately 80 patients will be enrolled.

      In Period 1 patients will receive ramucirumab (10mg/kg) every two weeks and gefitinib (250mg/day) until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or other withdrawal criteria are met. The study objectives are to determine the 1-yr PFS rate, safety and patient reported outcomes (Lung Cancer Symptom Scale and EQ-5D-5L]). In Period 2 the efficacy and safety of ramucirumab (10mg/kg) every two weeks with osimertinib (80mg/day) will be explored.

      Both RELAY+ and RELAY participants will be enrolled in a liquid biopsy exploratory substudy. ctDNA (circulating tumor DNA) from plasma samples will be used for ddPCR (droplet digital PCR) and NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) to characterize mechanisms of acquired resistance and to test the hypothesis if the addition of ramucirumab to an EGFR TKI delays or modifies the emergence of EGFR TKI resistance.
