Combination of Cisplatin, Docetaxel and Bevacizumab in Patients With Non-small Cell Lung Carcinoma (NSCLC)
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.
Despite recent advances in the treatment of NSCLC overall survival within these patients remains dismal and there is yet an unmet medical need for additional treatment options. In this phase II study a combination of chemotherapy with an antibody (cisplatin, docetaxel and bevacizumab) is tested to determine the objective response rate in patients with unresectable and advanced non-small cell lung cancer. This response rate will be compared with historical data.
The primary objective of this proof-of-concept study is to determine the objective response rate in patients with unresectable, stage IIIB and IV non-small cell lung carcinoma treated with the combination cisplatin, docetaxel and bevacizumab. This response rate will be compared to historical data from the ECOG4599 and AVAiL trials.
Secondary Outcome Measures
Progression free survival [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
Progression free survival, defined as the duration of time from first study treatment until progression or death from any cause as documented by the investigator.
Overall survival [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
Overall survival, defined as the duration of time from first study treatment until death from any cause.
Duration of response [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
Duration of response defined as timeframe from first response (CR or PR) until progression from best response.
