Safety Study of Adjuvant Docetaxel-Carboplatin Treatment for Resected Lung Cancer

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00883675
Recruitment Status : Completed

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether it is safe to treat lung cancer patients who have undergone an attempt at curative resection with the combination of docetaxel and carboplatin.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Non-small Cell Lung Cancer Drug: Docetaxel-Carboplatin Phase 4

Detailed Description:
Patients with stage Ib - IIIa NSCLC participated in an open-label, single arm study to assess the safety and tolerability of docetaxel (75 mg/kg) and carboplatin (AUC 5.5) administered for 3 cycles after resection for curative intent. The primary endpoint of the study was safety, as reflected by a febrile neutropenia rate of <10%. Other endpoints assessed protocol compliance and the impact of minimally invasive surgical technique.
