Taxol and carboplatin are commonly used drugs for the treatment of stage IIIB or IV non small cell lung carcinoma.

This study compares treatment with Taxol/carboplatin given every 3 weeks to a schedule where it is given weekly.

The purpose of the study is to determine the most effective and safe schedule for giving these drugs in non small cell lung carcinoma.

Condition Intervention Phase
Carcinoma, Non-Small-Cell Lung Drug: Paclitaxel and carboplatin Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multicenter, Randomized Trial for Stage IIIB or IV NSCLC Comparing Weekly Taxol(Paclitaxel) and Carboplatin(Paraplatin) Regimen Versus Standard Taxol and Carboplatin Administered Every Three Weeks, Followed by Weekly Taxol.
