First received: February 10, 2003
Last updated: May 4, 2007
Last verified: May 2007
The primary purpose of the study is to determine if patients with brain metastases from non-small cell lung cancer treated with Motexafin Gadolinium and whole brain radiation therapy retain their neurologic function and ability to think for a longer time compared to patients treated with whole brain radiation therapy alone.

Condition Intervention Phase
Brain Neoplasms Carcinoma, Non-Small-Cell Lung Metastases, Neoplasm Drug: Motexafin Gadolinium Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Randomized Phase III Trial of Xcytrin® (Motexafin Gadolinium) Injection for the Treatment of Brain Metastases in Patients With Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Undergoing Whole Brain Radiation Therapy
