Clinical Trial Summary

This clinical trial is looking at a drug called alectinib. Alectinib is approved as standard of care treatment for adult patients with certain types of lung cancer. This means it has gone through clinical trials and been approved by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in the UK. Alectinib works in lung cancer patients with a particular mutation in their cancer known as ALK. Investigators now wish to find out if it will be useful in treating patients with other cancer types which have the same mutation. If the results are positive, the study team will work with the NHS and the Cancer Drugs Fund to see if these drugs can be routinely accessed for patients in the future. This trial is part of a trial programme called DETERMINE. The programme will also look at other anti-cancer drugs in the same way, through matching the drug to rare cancer types or ones with specific mutations.

Clinical Trial Description

DETERMINE Treatment Arm 1 (alectinib) aims to evaluate the efficacy of alectinib in ALK-positive rare* adult, paediatric and teenage/young adult (TYA) cancers and in common cancers where an ALK mutation or amplification is considered to be infrequent. *Rare is defined generally as incidence less than 6 cases in 100,000 patients (includes paediatric and teenagers/young adult cancers) or common cancers with rare alterations. This treatment arm has a target sample size of 30 evaluable patients. Sub-cohorts may be defined and further expanded where promising activity is identified to a target of 30 evaluable patients each. The ultimate aim is to translate positive clinical findings to the NHS (Cancer Drugs Fund) to provide new treatment options for rare adult, paediatric and TYA cancers. OUTLINE: Pre-screening: The Molecular Tumour Board makes a treatment recommendation for the participant based on molecularly-defined cohorts (See information on Master Screening Protocol below). Screening: Consenting participants undergo biopsy and collection of blood samples for research purposes. Treatment: Participants will receive alectinib until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or withdrawal of consent. Participants will also undergo collection of blood samples at various intervals while receiving treatment and at EoT. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years. THE DETERMINE TRIAL MASTER (SCREENING) PROTOCOL: Please see DETERMINE Trial Master (Screening) Protocol record (NCT05722886) for information on the DETERMINE Trial Master Protocol and applicable documents. ;
