NEJ026 phase III trial

Combining bevacizumab with erlotinib as first-line treatment for EGFR Mut+ NSCLC resulted in a significant improvement in PFS compared with single-agent erlotinib in this patient population, which included those with asymptomatic CNS metastases.1

Study design and endpoints1
  • NEJ026 was a randomised phase III trial that took place across 69 centres in Japan.
  • The trial compared erlotinib plus bevacizumab versus erlotinib alone as first-line treatment for EGFR Mut+ NSCLC, to further evaluate the safety and efficacy of this combination observed in the JO25567 study.
