ALECENSA® (alectinib) Was Studied in a Head-to-Head Superiority Trial vs Crizotinib

ALEX: Global, Open-Label, Phase 3 Trial 1,2 

PRIMARY ENDPOINT 1:

  • PFS (INV)b

ADDITIONAL EFFICACY ENDPOINTS 1:

  • PFS (IRC)b
  • Time to CNS progression (IRC)b
  • ORR (IRC)
  • DOR (IRC)
  • OS (INV)

EXPLORATORY ENDPOINTS 1:

  • CNS ORR in patients with CNS metastases at baseline (IRC)
  • CNS DOR in patients with CNS metastases at baseline (IRC)

STRATIFICATION FACTORS 1:

  • ECOG PS (0/1 vs 2)
  • Race (Asian vs non-Asian)
  • CNS metastases at baseline (yes vs no)

aPatients were required to have an ECOG PS of 0-2 and ALK+ NSCLC as identified by the VENTANA ALK (D5F3) CDx assay.
bAssessed according to RECIST v1.1.

Baseline Characteristics Were Well Balanced Between Treatment Arms

Baseline Characteristics in ITT Population 2

1L=first-line; CNS=central nervous system; DOR=duration of response; ECOG PS=Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status; INV=Investigator; IRC=Independent Review Committee; ITT=intention to treat; ORR=objective response rate; PFS=progression-free survival; RECIST=Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors.

Alectinib (ALECENSA) NCCN Recommendation Category 1 Preferred

NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) recommend alectinib (ALECENSA) as a treatment option for first-line ALK+ metastatic NSCLC (Category 1, Preferred). 4*†

*When an ALK rearrangement is discovered prior to first-line systemic therapy.
The NCCN Guidelines for NSCLC provide recommendations for individual biomarkers that should be tested and recommend testing techniques, but do not endorse any specific commercially available biomarker assays.
