Nab-Paclitaxel Treatment in Advanced Squamous Cell Carcinoma of Lung (C-TONG1002)

This study has been completed.

Yi-Long Wu, Chinese Society of Lung Cancer Identifier:
First received: November 8, 2010
Last updated: August 4, 2014
Last verified: August 2014
This trial is to study the efficacy of nab-PC vs. GC and evaluate toxicity of nab-PC in advanced squamous cell cancer of lung. The correlation between the efficacy of nab-PC and some biomarkers is also to be evaluated.

Condition Intervention Phase
Carcinoma, Non-Small-Cell Lung
Drug: Albumin paclitaxel plus carboplatin
Drug: Gemcitabine plus carboplatin
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall response rate(ORR) [ Time Frame: 18weeks ]
    ORR is evaluated after at most 6 cycles of chemotherapy, which may cost 18 weeks.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Response duration, progression free survival, overall survival, safety profile [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Enrollment: 126
Study Start Date: November 2010
Study Completion Date: June 2014
Primary Completion Date: December 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Albumin paclitaxel plus carboplatin
Treatment of Albumin paclitaxel plus carboplatin
Drug: Albumin paclitaxel plus carboplatin
Patients receive carboplatin AUC=5 q3w and nab-p 135 mg/m2 weekly for 2 weeks (on days 1 and 8 of a 21-day cycle), followed by a week of rest.
Other Name: Abraxane(Albumin-bound paclitaxel,nab-P)
Active Comparator: Gemcitabine plus carboplatin
Treatment of Gemcitabine plus carboplatin
Drug: Gemcitabine plus carboplatin
Patients receive carboplatin AUC=5 q3w and gemcitabine 1250 mg/m2 weekly for 2 weeks (on days 1 and 8 of a 21-day cycle), followed by a week of rest.
Other Name: Gemzar(Gemcitabine)

Detailed Description:
Albumin-bound paclitaxel(nab-P) utilizes the albumin binding proteins,such as (gp60)/caveolin-1 (CAV1) and SPARC(secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine), achieving high intratumoral paclitaxel accumulation. It is reported that CAV1 is overexpressed in squamous cell cancer(SQC), so it is possible that nab-PC is more highly active than GC in SQC of lung.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 85 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All

  • Urine pregnancy test is negative for woman.
  • Estimated life expectancy is at least 3 months.
  • Patient comply with the clinical trial protocal.
  • Informed consent must be signed.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who are currently undergoing other anti-tumor therapy.
  • Patients who was enrolled in any other clinical trial within 4 weeks of study entry.
  • Any physical examination finding, or clinical laboratory finding giving reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that contraindicates the use of any study medication or render the subject at high risk from treatment.
  • Central nervous system (CNS) tumor or metastatic tumor.
  • Serious mental disorder.
  • Serious dysgnosia.
  • Other serious comorbidity.
