Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Disease-Control rate after 4 cycles [ Time Frame: 3-weeks ]

Estimated Enrollment: 62
Study Start Date: May 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2017
Primary Completion Date: January 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A Drug: Chemotherapy

Pemetrexed + Carboplatin

On D1 of a 21-day cycle:

  • Pemetrexed 500 mg/m² IV in 10 minutes followed 30 minutes later by:
  • Carboplatin AUC 5 in 30 minutes in 100 ml sterile water or 5% glucose or physiological serum. The carboplatin dose will be calculated by the Calvert formula with a target AUC of 5 mg/mL.min as follows:

Carboplatin dose in mg = 5 x (GFR + 25) GFR is estimated according to the MDRD equation for creatinine clearance

• 4 cycles total
