Condition carcinoma, non-small-cell lung
Treatments placebo plus docetaxel, bibf 1120 plus docetaxel
Phase phase 3
Sponsor Boehringer Ingelheim
Start date December 2008
End date December 2014
Trial size 1300 participants
Trial identifier NCT00805194, 1199.13, 2007-004803-36


The present trial will be performed to evaluate whether BIBF 1120 in combination with standard therapy of docetaxel in patients with stage IIIB/IV or recurrent NSCLC is more effective as compared to placebo in combination with standard therapy of docetaxel. A secondary aim is to obtain safety information as well as information on quality of life of patients treated with BIBF 1120 in combination to standard therapy with docetaxel. In addition, blood will be collected for pharmacokinetic analysis.
