  Purpose
This is a two-arm, parallel, open-label, Phase 2 multicenter study of pemetrexed as first line combination therapy with either cisplatin or carboplatin in the palliative setting of stage IIIb and IV non-small cell lung cancer patients. Approximately 130 patients will be included in about 15 centers in Germany and randomized to one of the above treatment regimens in a 1:1 ratio. Chemotherapy will be administered over a maximum of six cycles with a standard length of 21 days. Primary objective will be the Progression Free Survival Time of patients as assessed in both treatment arms.

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized Phase 2 Study of Pemetrexed in Combination With Cisplatin or Carboplatin in the First Line Therapy of Advanced NSCLC

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants Surviving Progression-Free at 6 Months (Progression Free Survival [PFS] Rate) [ Time Frame: Randomization to Month 6 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Randomization to date of death from any cause (up to 1 year) ]
  • Number of Participants With Tumor Response (as Basis for Response Rate) [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks for 6 months during the treatment period, and every 3 months during the follow-up period, until disease progression ]
  • Time to Treatment Failure (TTF) [ Time Frame: Randomization to stopping of treatment, progression, death or initiation of further chemotherapy, whichever occurs first (up to 1 year) ]
  • Pharmacology Toxicities [ Time Frame: Every 21-day cycle for up to 6 cycles ]
