Overview

This trial is active, not recruiting.

Condition extensive-stage small cell lung cancer
Treatments carboplatin, palifosfamide-tris, etoposide
Phase phase 3
Sponsor Ziopharm
Start date May 2012
End date June 2015
Trial size 548 participants
Trial identifier NCT01555710, IPM3002

Summary

This is a multinational, multicenter, randomized controlled, open-label, adaptive study to evaluate the efficacy of PaCE chemotherapy in chemotherapy naive subjects with extensive-stage SCLC. Eligible subjects will be stratified according to age, gender, and Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status, and randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive either PaCE or CE chemotherapy.

The study design uses an adaptive group sequential approach with sample size re-estimation at the interim analysis.

Secondary efficacy endpoints include ORR, PFS, duration of response and changes in QOL and disease-related symptoms. Tumor-related endpoints will be assessed according to the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) v1.1 guidelines.

The safety of study treatments will be assessed by the frequency and severity of adverse events as determined by National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) v4.03. To provide an initial confirmation of safety, an early interim analysis of safety data only will be performed.

An independent Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) will be convened to assess the safety and efficacy of the study interventions and to monitor the overall conduct of the clinical trial.

Primary Outcomes

Measure
Overall Survival (OS)
time frame: Assessed every 12 weeks for survival until 1 year following completion of enrollment

Secondary Outcomes

Measure
Progression Free Survival (PFS)
time frame: Assessed every 6 weeks for 22 weeks, then every 12 weeks until progressive disease, initiation of alternate anticancer therapy, or 1 year following the last patient enrolled (whichever is soonest)
Quality of Life (QOL) as assessed by EQ-5D-3L and QLQ-LC13
time frame: Assessed every 3 weeks for 22 weeks, then every 12 weeks until 1 year following the last patient enrolled
Objective Response Rate (ORR)
time frame: Assessed every 6 weeks for 22 weeks, then every 12 weeks until a partial or complete response is confirmed
Response Duration
time frame: Time from the date of first objective response (partial or complete response), with subsequent confirmation, until the date of disease progression or the occurrence of death
Safety parameters (number of adverse events as well as number of findings from physical examinations, ECGs, vital signs, and clinical laboratory results)using NCI CTCAE v. 4.03
time frame: 22 weeks

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Documented extensive-stage small cell lung cancer. - Patient has received no prior chemotherapy, adjuvant therapy, or radiotherapy for lung cancer. - ECOG Performance Status of 0, 1 or 2. - Adequate bone marrow and organ function based on the results of protocol- specified laboratory tests. - Male and female patients must agree to use a highly reliable method of birth control during study participation. - Able to provide informed consent Exclusion Criteria: - Previously untreated (non-irradiated), symptomatic brain metastases. - Known allergy to any of the study drugs or their excipients. - Any unstable or clinically significant concurrent medical condition that would, in the opinion of the investigator, jeopardize the safety of a patient and/or their compliance with the protocol, based on screening tests, physical examination and medical history (as specifically defined in the clinical protocol). - Any malignancy other than small cell lung cancer within the last 5 years prior to randomization, with the exception of cervical carcinoma in situ, nonmelanoma skin cancer, or superficial bladder tumors (Ta, Tis, or T1) that have been successfully and curatively treated with no evidence of recurrent or residual disease. (Exception: Subjects with a history of malignancy other than small cell lung cancer may be enrolled after consultation with the medical monitor provided the patient's prognosis is best defined by the extensive-stage small cell lung cancer). - Currently pregnant or nursing.
