Efficacy and Safety of BI 2536 in Advanced or Metastatic Non Small Cell Lung Cancer

This study has been completed.

Boehringer Ingelheim Identifier:
First received: September 14, 2006
Last updated: April 30, 2014
Last verified: April 2014
The trial will be performed to evaluate whether BI 2536 may be effective in the treatment of advanced or metastatic NSCLC of stage IIIB or IV in patients who relapsed after or failed first-line therapy. A secondary aim is to identify the most suitable dosage schedule for the further Phase II and III clinical programme of BI 2536. To achieve this objective two dosage schedules are compared.

Condition Intervention Phase
Carcinoma, Non-Small-Cell Lung
Drug: BI 2536
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open, Randomised Clinical Phase II Trial to Investigate the Efficacy, Safety and Pharmacokinetics of a Single Dose of 200 mg of i.v. BI 2536 in Comparison to 50 mg of i.v. BI 2536 Administered on Days 1, 2 and 3 in Patients With Advanced or Metastatic Non Small Cell Lung Cancer
