Lung Cancer Clinical Trial
Study to Assess the Safety and Tolerability of Repeated Doses of an Investigational New Drug in Patients With Cancer and Cachexia.
Study to assess the safety and tolerability of repeated doses of an investigational new drug in patients with cancer and cachexia.
This 12-week open-label study will explore how PF-06946860 is tolerated, the effects of the study drug, the best dose for treatment and how participants with non-small cell lung, pancreatic or colorectal cancer and cachexia feel after receiving repeated subcutaneous dosing. During the 12-week treatment period, study drug will be administered subcutaneously every 3 weeks for a total of 5 doses. There is a 12-week follow-up period following the last dose of study drug. Additional assessments include:
body weight measurements
blood pressure and heart rate measurements
Lumbar Skeletal Muscle Index (LSMI) by CT scan
to evaluate safety,
to measure the amount of the study drug in the blood,
to evaluate if the study drug causes an immune response,
to examine the effects of the study drug on levels of a specific cytokine,
and for exploratory samples for bio banking.
Measure the impact of the study drug on appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, physical function, and health-related quality of life with questionnaires.
Measure the impact of study drug on physical activity using wearable digital sensors.
To evaluate the effect of study drug on ability to complete anti-tumor treatment and survival in participants with cancer and cachexia.
To evaluate tumor size.
Documented histologic or cytologic diagnosis of advanced metastatic NSCLC, advanced/unresectable pancreatic cancer, or metastatic colorectal cancer.
Cachexia, defined by BMI <20 kg/m2 with involuntary weight loss of >2% within 6 months prior to screening or Involuntary weight loss of >5% within 6 months prior to screening irrespective of BMI or If medical record documentation is unavailable, patient's report will suffice to estimate involuntary body weight loss.;
