|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years and older
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
- Patients with squamous cell NSCLC.
- Treatment within the last 30 days with a drug that has not received regulatory approval for any indication at the time of study entry.
- Concurrent administration of any other anti-tumor therapy.
- Inability to comply with protocol or study procedures.
- Active infection requiring IV antibiotics, antifungal or antiviral agents, that in the opinion of the investigator would compromise the patient's ability to tolerate therapy.
- Documented symptomatic or untreated central nervous system (CNS) metastases (except if adequately treated and stable for at least 2 weeks).
- Major surgery within 2 weeks of study or other serious concomitant systemic disorders that, in the opinion or the investigator, would compromise the safety of the patient or compromise the patient's ability to complete the study.
- Myocardial infarction having occurred less than 6 months before inclusion, any known uncontrolled arrhythmia, symptomatic angina pectoris, active ischemia or cardiac failure not controlled by medications.
- Have peripheral neuropathy of CTCAE Grade 1 or higher
- Contraindications to corticosteroids.
- Inability or unwillingness to take folic acid or vitamin B12 supplementation.
- Unwillingness to stop taking herbal supplements while on study.
- Presence of clinically significant third-space fluid collections (for example, ascites or pleural effusions) that cannot be controlled by drainage or other procedures prior to study entry and throughout study enrollment as the distribution of pemetrexed in this fluid space is not fully understood.
- Recent (within 30 days before enrollment) or concurrent yellow fever vaccination.
- Have prior known allergic/hypersensitivity reaction to any of the components of study treatment
- Inability to discontinue administration of aspirin at a dose greater than 1300 mg/day or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents for 2 days before, the day of, and 2 days after the dose of pemetrexed (5 days for long-acting agents such as piroxicam).
- Female patients that is pregnant or breast-feeding.
