Nab-paclitaxel and carboplatin showed better treatment response compared with cremophor-based paclitaxel and carboplatin as first-line therapy in advanced non-small cell lung cancer, especially for squamous cell cancer. The regimen of weekly nab-paclitaxel, carboplatin and concurrent radiotherapy was well tolerated in a phase I study. Given nab-paclitaxel, carboplatin and concurrent radiotherapy in patients with local advanced squamous cell lung cancer may have promising result.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: chemoradiotherapy
This is a single arm study with patients receiving nab-paclitaxel, carboplatin and thoracic radiotherapy.
Drug: Paclitaxel for Injection(Albumin Bound)
concurrent: 60 mg/m2, IV, weekly; consolidation: 260 mg/m2, IV, every 3 weeks
Other Name: Abraxane®
Drug: carboplatin
concurrent: AUC 2, IV, weekly; consolidation: AUC 6, IV, every 3 weeks
Radiation: thoracic radiation therapy
66 Gy in 33 fractions,both three-dimensional conformal and intensity modulated radiation therapy are allowed

Detailed Description:
This study was conducted to explore the efficacy and toxicity of concurrent chemoradiotherapy with nab-paclitaxel, carboplatin and thoracic radiotherapy in unresectable local advanced squamous cell lung cancer. Patients will be given nab-paclitaxel weekly at a dose of 60mg/m2, in combination with carboplatin (AUC 2) weekly during concurrent chemoradiotherapy. Thoracic radiation was administered at a dose of 66 Gy/33 fractions, both 3 dimensional conformal and intensity modulated radiation therapy are allowed. Two cycles of consolidation therapy with full dose nab-paclitaxel (260 mg/m2 on day 1) and carboplatin (AUC 6 on day 1) every 21 day will be delivered.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 75 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Performance status of 0 to 1 on the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Scale.
  • Previously untreated, histological documented, inoperable stage IIIA or IIIB squamous cell carcinoma of lung, excluding those with pericardial, pleural effusion, and those with contralateral hilar or contralateral supraclavicular lymph nodes.
  • Patients must have measurable disease according to RECIST criteria, and all detectable tumor can be encompassed by radiation therapy fields.
  • Weight loss ≦ 5% in the previous six months.
  • Patient must have adequate blood, liver, lungs and kidney function within the requirements of this study.
  • Female patients of child-bearing potential must test negative for pregnancy at the time of enrollment based on a serum pregnancy test. Male and female patients must agree to use a reliable method of birth control during and for 3 months following the last dose of study drug.
  • Patients must sign a study-specific informed consent form prior to study entry.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Complete tumor resection, recurrent disease, or those patients eligible for definitive surgery.
  • Previous chemotherapy or previous biologic response modifiers for current lung cancer.
  • Patient has previously had thoracic radiation therapy.
  • Prior or concurrent malignancy except non-melanomatous skin cancer unless disease-free for five years or more.
  • Serious concomitant disorders that would compromise the safety of the patient, or compromise the patient's ability to complete the study, at the discretion of the investigator.
  • History of significant neurological or mental disorder, including seizures or dementia.
