Condition carcinoma, non small cell lung
Treatment sorafenib
Phase phase 1
Sponsor University of Wisconsin, Madison
Collaborator Bayer
Start date July 2009
End date December 2015
Trial size 24 participants
Trial identifier NCT00954278, CO08511, H-2009-0011, IST 000381


The purpose of this study is to determine the number of patients with advanced, relapsed non-small cell lung cancer who can tolerate dose escalation sorafenib from 400 mg twice daily to either 600 mg twice daily or 800 mg twice daily. Safety and tolerability of sorafenib will also be examined.

Additional Information

Official title A Phase I, Intrapatient Dose-Escalation Study of Sorafenib in Advanced or Relapsed Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
Principal investigator Anne M Traynor, M.D.
Description Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in the U.S. Time to progression in advanced disease remains poor and further study of newer agents with novel mechanisms of action is needed to improve duration and quality of life for NSCLC patients. Sorafenib is an oral-multi-kinase inhibitor with effects on tumor proliferation and tumor angiogenesis. Sorafenib has demonstrated activity in preclinical models of NSCLC both in combination with chemotherapy and as monotherapy. A recent intra-patient dose escalation trial of sorafenib in renal cell carcinoma showed positive response rates and tolerability up to 1200mg in 91% of patients. This study attempts a similar dose-escalation of sorafenib in NSCLC patients.
