The administration of Anamorelin in patients with Stage III-IV non-small cell lung cancer-cachexia (NSCLC-C) is expected to increase appetite, lean body mass, weight gain, and muscle strength.

Study summary:

This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study to assess the safety and efficacy of Anamorelin in patients with non-small cell lung cancer-cachexia (NSCLC-C). The primary efficacy analysis will include the treatment difference in the change in lean body mass and physical function. Pharmacokinetic (PK) samples will also be collected at Day 43 visit for population PK.
