Zalutumumab in Combination With Chemo-Radiation in a Certain Type of Lung Cancer

This study has been terminated.
(Due to considerations regarding the appropriate therapeutic regimen for these patients.)

The purpose of the study is to investigate if treatment with zalutumumab in combination with chemotherapy and radiotherapy (chemo-radiation) will lead to a prolonged life in patients with lung cancer compared to patients treated with chemo-radiation alone.

Condition Intervention Phase
Non Small Cell Lung Cancer
Biological: Zalutumumab
Drug: Induction chemotherapy
Radiation: Radiotherapy
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Open-label, Multi-center Trial Investigating Zalutumumab, a Human Monoclonal Anti-EGF Receptor Antibody, in Combination With Chemo-Radiation in Stage IIIA-IIIB Non Small Cell Lung Cancer Patients

Further study details as provided by Genmab:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression Free Survival Verified by Imaging Techniques. [ Time Frame: Until disease progression ]
    Disease progression was planned to be confirmed using RECIST criteria J Natl Cancer Inst 2000;92:205-16

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 3 months ]
    Number of participants reporting at least one adverse event

Enrollment: 13
Study Start Date: April 2007
Study Completion Date: October 2008
Primary Completion Date: October 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Zalutumumab 8 mg/kg Biological: Zalutumumab
8 mg/kg
Drug: Induction chemotherapy
Combination of cisplatin and docetaxel administered as two cycles given every three weeks
Radiation: Radiotherapy
64 Gy in 32 fractions over 6.5 weeks

Detailed Description:
Originally the study was planned as Part 1A, Part 1B and Part 2. Part 1A was one arm with zalatumumab fixed dose 8 mg/kg. Part 1B was planned as zalutumumab dose-titration and Part 2 adding a comparator. The trial was prematurely closed for enrolment when patients had only been enrolled in Part 1A due to published results showing increased toxicity from induction chemotherapy without any survival benefit.
