Selinexor and Docetaxel in Treating Patients With Recurrent or Metastatic Squamous Cell Lung Cancer

2015-09-01 23:38:24 | BioPortfolio


This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of selinexor and docetaxel and to see how well they work when given together in treating patients with squamous cell lung cancer that has come back or spread to other places in the body. Selinexor may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving selinexor together with docetaxel may work better in treating squamous cell lung cancer.



I. To evaluate the toxicity and determine recommended phase II dose of the combination of docetaxel and selinexor. (Phase I) II. To evaluate the efficacy as measured by progression free survival (PFS) of docetaxel and selinexor in patients with recurrent/metastatic squamous cell lung cancer. (Phase I/II)


I. To evaluate the objective tumor response rate as determined by radiographic response.

II. To evaluated the disease control rate (complete response, partial responses, and stable disease).

III. To evaluate the overall survival (OS). IV. To evaluate the safety and tolerability of single agent selinexor.


I. Lung cancer genomics sequencing panel. II. Tumor biopsy (baseline and cycle 2). III. Plasma cytokine analysis, peripheral blood ribonucleic acid (RNA) analysis.

OUTLINE: This is a phase I, dose-escalation study followed by a phase II study.

Patients receive docetaxel intravenously (IV) on day 1 and selinexor orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1, 3, 7, 9, 13, and 15. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up monthly for 3 months, every 3 months for 9 months, and then every 6 months thereafter.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Laboratory processes prior to specimen analysis. These processes include study design, compliance of the subjects investigated, compliance in adherence to protocols, choice of specimens utilized and sample collection.

Techniques which study entities using their topological, geometric, or geographic properties and include the dimension of time in the analysis.

A type of analysis in which subjects in a study group and a comparison group are made comparable with respect to extraneous factors by individually pairing study subjects with the comparison group subjects (e.g., age-matched controls).

Absolute, comparative, or differential costs pertaining to services, institutions, resources, etc., or the analysis and study of these costs.

A set of techniques used when variation in several variables has to be studied simultaneously. In statistics, multivariate analysis is interpreted as any analytic method that allows simultaneous study of two or more dependent variables.
