This group will receive the combination of non-cytotoxic suramin with docetaxel and carboplatin.
Drug: Suramin Drug:Docetaxel Drug: Carboplatin
Suramin dosage will be determined by nomogram and administered over 30 minutes. Suramin is followed by docetaxel (56 mg/m2, administered over 1 hour), followed by carboplatin (dosage calculated by Calvert equation to have a target AUC of 6, administered over 1 hour).
Placebo Comparator: Standard of care
This group will receive placebo with docetaxel and carboplatin.
Drug: Placebo Drug: Docetaxel Drug: Carboplatin
Placebo (100 ml of 0.9% sodium chloride or 5% dextrose in water) will be administered over 30 minutes, followed by docetaxel (75 mg/m2, administered over 1 hour), followed by carboplatin (dose calculated by Calvert equation to have a target AUC of 6, administered over 1 hour).
The primary objective is to determine the progression free survival for patients with stage III B with malignant pleural effusion or Stage IV NSCLC treated with docetaxel and carboplatin with or without suramin.
The secondary objectives are to compare median overall survival rate, compare overall response rate of patients in both arms, assess toxicity of suramin with docetaxel and carboplatin, determine whether pre-treatment bFGF levels correlate with survival, to determine whether survival benefit from suramin is associated with M phase entry in peripheral blood lymphocytes, and to determine whether adding suramin to docetaxel and carboplatin produces greater survival benefits in African-American patients.
