Last verified: May 2012

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy such as soblidotin use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of soblidotin in treating patients who have progressive locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer.

Condition Intervention Phase
Lung Cancer
Drug: soblidotin
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase II Study Of Intravenous TZT-1027, Administered Weekly Times Two, Every Three Weeks, To Patients With Progressive Locally Advanced Or Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Following Treatment With Platinum-Based Chemotherapy

Study Start Date: April 2003
Study Completion Date: May 2005
Primary Completion Date: May 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:


  • Determine the objective tumor response rate and duration of response in patients with progressive locally advanced or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer treated with soblidotin as second-line therapy after receiving prior platinum-based chemotherapy.
  • Determine the time to tumor progression in patients treated with this drug.
  • Determine the median survival time and 12-month survival rate of patients treated with this drug.
  • Determine the quantitative and qualitative toxic effects of this drug in these patients.
  • Determine the pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label, multicenter study.

Patients receive soblidotin IV over 1 hour on days 1 and 8. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Plasma sampling for pharmacokinetics is done on day 1 of course 1.

Patients are followed for survival every 3 months after discontinuing study treatment.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 27 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.
