Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

    Efficacy will be measured by calculating the following:

    • Response rate using Response Evaluation Criteria for Solid Tumor criteria
    • Time to Disease progression or Death
    • Overall Survival

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression free survival, safety [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    • To determine progression free survival, median survival and 1 year survival of the studied population.
    • To evaluate the Number of participants with Adverse Events and Serious Adverse Events.Safety will include 4 parameters to be collected for all patients who receive the study regimen which are:

      • Adverse Events
      • Laboratory Assessments
      • Vital Signs
      • Physical Examinations

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: March 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Cisplatin, Docetaxel
Each cycle of chemotherapy administration will be started with docetaxel at dose of 75 mg/m2 in 250 ml of D5W or NS administered as a 1-hour intravenous infusion, followed by cisplatin at dose of 75 mg/m2administered as a 2-hour intravenous infusion every 3 weeks per cycle for 4-6 cycles
Drug: cisplatin, docetaxel

All patients met the eligibility criteria will undergo treatment with chemotherapy.

Each cycle of chemotherapy administration will be started with docetaxel at dose of 75 mg/m2 in 250 ml of Dextrose 5% in Water or Normal Saline administered as a 1-hour intravenous infusion followed by cisplatin at dose of 75 mg/m2 administered as a 2-hour intravenous infusion every 3 weeks per cycle for totally 4-6 cycles.

Detailed Description:
The cisplatin/docetaxel is established standard in the first line management of metastatic non small cell lung cancer in the United States, Europe and Asia. However, the safety and efficacy of this regimen was not studied systematically in Middle Eastern population. The aim of this study is to study the efficacy and safety of this regimen in our patient population
