  Purpose

Tavocept is an investigational drug that is being developed to see if it can increase the survival of patients who are being treated with chemotherapy as well as to see if it can prevent or reduce side effects of chemotherapy. This research study is aimed at trying to find out if people with advanced adenocarcinoma of the lung who are treated with a standard combination of chemotherapy drugs will live longer if they are also treated with an investigational drug called "Tavocept." Another objective of this research study is to find out whether or not Tavocept helps to prevent or reduce side-effects like kidney damage, anemia, and nausea and vomiting that can occur with these drug combinations. The drug combinations that will be used in this research study will include either paclitaxel and cisplatin, or docetaxel and cisplatin. These drug combinations are approved to be used to treat people with advanced NSCLC. Every patient on this research study will be treated with standard chemotherapy for primary NSCLC in the form of either docetaxel or paclitaxel (these will be recommended by your research study doctor), which will be given in combination with cisplatin.
