Drug: Cisplatin
Phase 1
Phase 2

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase 1: Safety measure to establish the MTD or RPDII dose of Sagopilone used in combination with cisplatin [ Time Frame: Phase 1: Baseline up to 3 month of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Phase 2: Efficacy measure [ Time Frame: Phase 2: every 6 weeks after start of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase 1: PK of Sagopilone + Cisplatin [ Time Frame: Upto 336 h after the beginning of the sagopilone infusion and upto 20 h 45 min after the beginning of the cisplatin infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Phase 2: Duration of CR or PR [ Time Frame: every 6 weeks after start of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Duration of complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) as 'overall response', defined as time between first date that the measurement criteria for CR or PR as 'overall response' are met and first date that recurrence or overall response of (progressive disease) PD is documented.

  • Phase 2: TTP [ Time Frame: every 6 weeks after start of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to tumor progression (TTP) is defined as the time from the date of treatment assignment to the first observation of disease progression or to the last date of a definite assessment (not status unknown), if the patient is progression-free until that assessment.

  • Phase 2: PFS [ Time Frame: every 6 weeks after start of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progression free survival (PFS) is defined as the time from date of treatment assignment to the first observation of disease progression or death of any cause or to the last date of a definite assessment (not status unknown), if the patient was progression-free until that assessment

  • Phase 2: OS [ Time Frame: every 3 months after start of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall survival (OS) is defined as the time from date of treatment assignment until death from any cause or until the last date the patient is known to be alive

Enrollment: 26
Study Start Date: July 2006
Study Completion Date: August 2009
Primary Completion Date: March 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Sagopilone and cisplatin
The study drug sagopilone was administered in combination with a fixed dose of cisplatin
Drug: Sagopilone (BAY86-5302, ZK 219477)
Phase 1: dose escalation/deescalation, starting dose 12mg/m² Sagopilone, Phase 2: MTD or RPIID
Drug: Cisplatin
75 mg/m² as a 1 h infusion after the sagopilone infusion on Day 1
