Condition lung cancer
Treatments oxaliplatin, gemcitabine
Phase phase 2
Sponsor National Cancer Center, Korea
Start date January 2006
End date May 2010
Trial size 43 participants
Trial identifier NCT00453115, NCCCTS-05-157


Oxaliplatin is a diaminocyclohexane platinum compound, with a mechanism of action similar to that of cisplatin. Oxaliplatin has a more manageable toxicity profile than cisplatin, with no renal toxicity and a lower incidence of hematological and gastrointestinal toxicities. Gemcitabine and oxaliplatin are both active in NSCLC with no overlapping toxicity. Preclinical studies show a synergistic effect of the gemcitabine-oxaliplatin combination. The combination of gemcitabine-oxaliplatin is attractive in NSCLC patients as it may improve the therapeutic index.

oxaliplatin 85mg/m2 iv on D1 and 15, every 4 weeks until disease progression
gemcitabine 1250mg/m2 iv on day 1 and 15, every 4 weeks until disease progression

Primary Outcomes

Response rate
time frame: every 12 weeks during until disease progression

Secondary Outcomes

To estimate the time to progression and overall survival
time frame: the first day of treatment to the date that disease progression is reported
To evaluate the improvement quality of life
time frame: before the first treatment and every cycle d1 until diseas progression
To estimate the overall survival
time frame: the first day of the treatment to death date

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: 1. Histologic or cytologic diagnosis of NSCLC, Stage IV or selected stage IIIB (with positive pleural effusion or separate tumor nodules in the same lobe) according to the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC). 2. No prior chemotherapy. 3. Prior radiation therapy is allowed as long as the irradiated area is not the only source of measurable disease. 4. No other forms of cancer therapy, such as radiation, immunotherapy for at least 4 weeks before the enrollment in study. 5. Performance status of 0, 1, 2 on the ECOG criteria. 6. At least one unidimensional measurable lesion meeting Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST. 2000). 7. Estimated life expectancy of at least 12 weeks. 8. Patient compliance that allow adequate follow-up. 9. Adequate organ function including the following:Adequate hematologic function: WBC count ≥ 3,500/uL, absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1,500/uL, and platelet count ≥ 100,000/uLAdequate hepatic function: bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x UNL, ALT or AST ≤ 2.5 x UNL.Adequate renal function: creatinine ≤ 1.5mg/dL. 10. Informed consent from patient 11. Males or females at least 18 years old. 12. If female: childbearing potential either terminated by surgery, radiation, or menopause, or attenuated by use of an approved contraceptive method (intrauterine device [IUD], birth control pills, or barrier device) during and for 3 months after trial. If male, use of an approved contraceptive method during the study and 3 months afterwards. Females with childbearing potential must have a urine negative hCG test within 7 days prior to the study registration. Exclusion Criteria: 1. MI within preceding 6 months or symptomatic heart disease, including unstable angina, congestive heart failure or uncontrolled arrhythmia 2. Serious concomitant infection including post obstructive pneumonia 3. Second primary malignancy (except in situ carcinoma of the cervix or adequately treated basal cell carcinoma of the skin or prior malignancy treated more than 5 years ago without recurrence) 4. Pregnant or nursing women 5. Psychiatric disorder that would preclude compliance. 6. Major surgery other than biopsy within the past two weeks.

Principal investigator Heung Tae Kim, M.D.
Description The combination of gemcitabine-oxaliplatin is attractive in NSCLC patients as it may improve the therapeutic index. We are conducting a phase II study to evaluate the response rate and toxicity of the gemcitabine-oxaliplatin combination both given every 4 weeks in patients with advanced NSCLC.
