MEK Inhibitor PD-325901 To Treat Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

This study has been terminated.
(Terminated [See Detailed Description for Termination Reason.])
Information provided by:
Pfizer Identifier:
First received: September 9, 2005
Last updated: March 16, 2009
Last verified: February 2009
MEK is a critical member of the MAPK pathway involved in growth and survival of cancer cells. PD-325901 is a new drug designed to block this pathway and kill cancer cells. The purpose of this study is to study the effectiveness of PD-325901 in patients with non-small cell lung cancer. PD-325901 will be given by mouth as a pill twice a day, CT scans will be done and biopsies of a tumor and a blood sample will be taken before treatment to examine the how genes affect tumor response to the study medication. Blood samples will be taken to measure the amount of drug in the blood.

Detailed Description:
This study was terminated prematurely on 23 March 2007 due to safety issues (ocular and neurological toxicity observed in another PD-0325901 study, A4581001) as well as lack of objective responses

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically documented non-small cell lung cancer with metastases (Stage IV or recurrent disease) or locally advanced (Stage IIIB) with malignant pleural effusion with no expectation of further effects of prior anticancer therapy, and resolution of all acute toxic effects
  • Adequate renal, liver, and bone marrow function, determined within 2 weeks prior to the first treatment and an ECOG status of <=1.
  • Must have evidence of progression of disease within 6 months of most recent prior systemic anticancer therapy.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • No parathyroid disorder or history of malignancy associated hypercalcemia
  • No ongoing radiation therapy or radio-cytotoxic therapy within prior 4 weeks; No immunotherapy, biologic therapy, hormonal, or molecular targeted therapy within prior 2 weeks
  • No concurrent serious infection or life-threatening illness (unrelated to tumor)
  • No history of a malignancy (other tha non-small cell lung cancer) except those treated with curative intent for skin cancer (other than melanoma) or in situ breast or cervical cancer or those treated with curative intent for any other cancer with no evidence of disease for 5 years.
  • No active seizure disorders or untreated brain metastases.
