Clinical Trial Results
Once the last participant has completed the clinical trial, Roche will analyze the combined results of the trial and create a report summarizing the results. The analysis of the data takes time; however Roche aims to make the summary of the outcome of the clinical trial available within 12 months after the last clinical trial participant has completed the trial. Roche may also provide a summary of trial outcome prior to the end of the clinical trial. Below you can find the available results of the ALUR clinical trial.

This randomized active-controlled multicenter Phase III open-label study will evaluate and compare between treatment groups the efficacy of alectinib versus chemotherapy in participants with ALK-positive advanced NSCLC who were previously treated with chemotherapy and crizotinib, as measured by investigator-assessed progression-free survival (PFS) and to evaluate and compare between treatment groups the central nervous system (CNS) objective response rate (C-ORR) in participants with measurable CNS metastases at baseline, as assessed by an Independent Review Committee (IRC).
Randomized, Multicenter, Phase III, Open-Label Study of Alectinib Versus Pemetrexed or Docetaxel in Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase-Positive Advanced Non Small Cell Lung Cancer Patients Previously Treated With Platinum-Based Chemotherapy and Crizotinib
- Histologically or cytologically confirmed diagnosis of advanced or recurrent (Stage IIIB not amenable for multimodality treatment) or metastatic (Stage IV) NSCLC that is ALK-positive. ALK positivity must have been determined by a validated fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) test (recommended probe, Vysis ALK Break-Apart Probe) or a validated immunohistochemistry (IHC) test (recommended antibody, clone D5F3)
- Participant had received two prior systemic lines of therapy, which must have included one line of platinum-based chemotherapy and one line of crizotinib
- Prior CNS or leptomeningeal metastases allowed if asymptomatic
- Participants with symptomatic CNS metastases for whom radiotherapy is not an option will be allowed to participate in this study
- Measurable disease by RECIST Version 1.1 prior to the administration of study treatment
- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0-2
- For all females of childbearing potential, a negative pregnancy test must be obtained within 3 days before starting study treatment
- Participants with a previous malignancy within the past 3 years are excluded (other than curatively treated basal cell carcinoma of the skin, early gastrointestinal [GI] cancer by endoscopic resection or in situ carcinoma of the cervix)
- Participants who have received any previous ALK inhibitor other than crizotinib
- Any GI disorder that may affect absorption of oral medications
