Tarceva, an orally available small molecule, has demonstrated potent activity in tumor models and humans. This randomized, open-label phase 2 study of Tarceva alone and of Tarceva plus VELCADE is designed primarily to determine the objective tumor response rates to these treatments in patients with Stage IIIB or Stage IV non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that is refractory to or has relapsed after front-line chemotherapy.

Condition Intervention Phase
NSCLC Drug: erlotinib and bortezomib Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Non-comparative, Multicenter, Open-Label, Phase 2 Study of Tarceva™ (Erlotinib) Alone and of Tarceva Plus VELCADE* (Bortezomib) for Injection in Patients With Relapsed or Refractory, Locally Advanced or Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
