Trastuzumab Deruxtecan in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

What is the Purpose of this Study?

This study focuses on individuals who have unresectable, locally advanced or metastatic lung cancer with a mutation on the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2). HER2 is a protein found on the surface of tumor cells. Unresectable means that the cancer is unable to be removed with surgery. The purpose of the study is to determine whether an experimental drug called trastuzumab deruxtecan is effective and safe for the treatment of unresectable, locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with HER2 exon 19 or 20 mutations as compared to standard-of-care treatment. In some lung cancers, the cancer cells have alterations on the HER2 gene called “mutations”. A mutation in HER2 exons 19 or 20 refers to the specific location of that alteration. Trastuzumab Deruxtecan is a type of anti-cancer drug called an ‘antibody drug conjugate’ (ADC) that targets cancer cells. Standard-of-care treatment in this study will include chemotherapy plus pemetrexed and immunotherapy (pembrolizumab).
