This is a Phase 2, open-label, multicenter study to evaluate the efficacy and the safety/tolerability of poziotinib in up to 174 patients with NSCLC exon 20 insertion mutations (87 patients with EGFR exon 20 insertion mutations and 87 patients with HER2 exon 20 insertion mutations).

Official Title

A Phase 2 Study of Poziotinib in Patients With Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer, Locally Advanced or Metastatic, With EGFR or HER2 Exon 20 Insertion Mutation (POZITIVE20-1)


The Screening period (Day -30 to Day -1) lasts up to approximately 30 days prior to Cycle 1, Day 1. Patients must meet all Inclusion/Exclusion Criteria to participate in the study. Eligible patients will provide written Informed Consent prior to undergoing any study procedures.

Each treatment cycle is 28 calendar days in duration. There will be two cohorts and eligible patients will be enrolled into each cohort based on EGFR or HER2 exon 20 mutant status:

  • Cohort 1: Patients with EGFR exon 20 insertion-mutant non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)
  • Cohort 2: Patients with HER2 exon 20 insertion-mutant non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)

Toxicity will be assessed based on the grade of the adverse events using CTCAE version 4.03.

All treatments will be taken orally, once daily (QD) at approximately the same time each morning. On Day 1 of each 28-day cycle, the patient's absolute neutrophil count (ANC) must be ≥1.5×109/L and platelet count must be ≥100×109/L before administering poziotinib. All patients will be treated until disease progression, death, intolerable adverse events, or up to a maximum of 24 months, whichever comes first.
