Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Establish the phase II recommended dose (P2RD) of Vorinostat when administered in combination with the regimen of carboplatin, paclitaxel and bevacizumab for patients with previously untreated advanced non-small cell lung cancer. [ Time Frame: An average of 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants will be followed for survival, an expected average of two years.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate safety profile of 4-drug regimen. Obtain preliminary evidence regarding anti-cancer activity of the regimen. Understand mechanistic aspects of drug effect by conducting correlative science studies on peripheral blood and archived tumor tissue. [ Time Frame: Average of 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Participants will be followed for survival, an expected average of 2 years.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Phase I dose escalating scheme
Drug: Vorinostat, Bevacizumab, Carboplatin, Paclitaxel
This dose escalating phase will enroll sequential cohorts of 3-6 patients to be entered at the following dose levels: Level -1: Days 1-14, Vorinostat 100 mg po QD; Day 3, Bevacizumab 15 mg/kg; Carboplatin 6 AUC; Paclitaxel 175 mg/m2. Level 1: Days 1-14, Vorinostat 200 mg po QD days 1-14; Day 3, Bevacizumab 15 mg/kg; Carboplatin 6 AUC; Paclitaxel 200 mg/m2. Level 2: Days 1-14, Vorinostat 300 mg po QD days 1-14; Day 3, Bevacizumab 15 mg/kg; Carboplatin 6 AUC; Paclitaxel 200 mg/m2. Level 3: Days 1-14, Vorinostat 400 mg po QD days 1-14; Day 3, Bevacizumab 15 mg/kg; Carboplatin 6 AUC; Paclitaxel 200 mg/m2. Treatment cycles will be repeated every 3 weeks. The highest dose level which <2 out of 5 patients experience dose limiting toxicity will be defined as the recommended phase II dose.
Other Name: SAHA
Experimental: 2
Phase 2 will evaluate the toxicities and safety profile of the 4-drug regimen.
Drug: Vorinostat, Bevacizumab, Carboplatin, Paclitaxel
Once the recommended phase II dose has been established from Phase I, 12 additional patients will be treated to evaluate the toxicities and safety profile of the 4-drug regimen.
Other Name: SAHA

Detailed Description:

Since the regimen of bevacizumab, carboplatin and paclitaxel has become a standard regimen for the treatment of advanced non-squamous NSCLC, new studies in this patient population will have to include this as a reference arm. Addition of a fourth anti-cancer agent has now become the new strategy to improve the outcome for advanced non-squamous NSCLC. Since the regimen of Vorinostat, Carboplatin and Paclitaxel is already in advanced stage of development it is important to study the safety and tolerability of Vorinostat in combination with the three-drug regimen of Bevacizumab, Carboplatin and Paclitaxel. Therefore, we will evaluate Vorinostat when administered in combination with the regimen of Carboplatin, Paclitaxel and Bevacizumab for patients with previously untreated advanced non-small cell lung cancer.
