Brief Summary:

Famitinib is a tyrosin-inhibitor agent targeting at c-Kit, VEGFR2, PDGFR, VEGFR3, Flt1 and Flt3. Phase I study has shown that the toxicity is manageable.

This study assessed the safety and maximum tolerated dose of continuous daily treatment with Famitinib plus docetaxel (60 mg/m^2, every 3 weeks) in patients with Advanced Non-squamous and Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) to determine the recommended dose for the Phase II trial.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Drug: famitinib L + docetaxel Drug: famitinib M + docetaxel Drug: famitinib H + docetaxel Phase 1

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Famitinib + docetaxel
Low, medium and high dose of famitinib and 60 mg/m^2 docetaxel every 3 weeks
Drug: famitinib L + docetaxel
famitinib 15mg qd + docetaxel 60 mg/m^2

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of famitinib in combination with standard-dose docetaxel(60 mg/m^2) [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]
    MTD was defined as the highest dose at which incidence of dose-limiting toxicities(DLTs) in Cyle 1 was ≤33.3%(0/3,1/6,2/6)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidences of Adverse Events according to Common Toxicity Criteria (CTC version 4.0) associated with increasing doses of famitinib [ Time Frame: 1 years ]
  2. Pharmacokinetics-AUC [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC) for famitinib and docetaxel

  3. Pharmacokinetics-Cmax [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Maximum measured plasma concentration (Cmax) for famitinib and docetaxel

  4. Pharmacokinetics-Tmax [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Time from dosing to the maximum plasma concentration (Tmax) for famitinib and docetaxel

  5. Pharmacokinetics-t1/2 [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Terminal half-life (t1/2(ss)) for famitinib and docetaxel

  6. Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
  7. Progress free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 1 years ]
