Chemotherapy-naïve patients with unresectable stage III/IV NSCLC received pemetrexed 500 mg/m2 IV and gemcitabine 1500 mg/m2 IV every 2 weeks for 8-12 cycles with restaging every 4 cycles. Patients also received supplemental folate/B12 therapy.
500mg/m2 IV over 10 min, Day 1, prior to gemcitabine
Other Name: Alimta
1500mg/m2, 30min IV
Other Name: Gemzar
- Overall Response Rate [ Time Frame: 18 months ]Overall response rate is the percentage of patients with complete response or partial response per RECIST v.1 Criteria. Complete response (CR) = Disappearance of all target lesions, disappearance of all nontarget lesions for at least 4 weeks. Partial Response (PR) = At least a 30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum of longest diameters.
- Progression-free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 18 months ]PFS was defined as the interval between the start date of treatment and the date of occurrence of progressive disease or death from any cause.
- Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 18 months ]OS was measured from the date of study entry until the date of death.
