Eribulin Mesylate Administered in Combination With Pemetrexed Versus Pemetrexed Alone as Second Line Therapy in Patients With Stage IIIB or IV Nonsquamous Non Small Cell Lung Cancer

2014-07-24 14:05:42 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether Eribulin Mesylate Administered in Combination with Pemetrexed is safe and tolerable and to gain a preliminary indication of clinical benefit when administered to Patients with Stage IIIB or IV Nonsquamous Non Small Cell Lung Cancer.

Description

This open-label, multicenter, randomized study will consist of a Phase Ib portion: a safety run-in period with 3 ascending doses of eribulin; and a Phase II portion: a randomized 3-arm design. .

Phase Ib-Patients will be recruited into cohorts, into one of two parallel arms evaluating different eribulin dosing schedules (Arm 1: eribulin on Day 1; Arm 2: eribulin on Days 1 and 8), with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 patients per cohort. All patients will receive pemetrexed (500 mg/m2) in combination with eribulin. All patients in a cohort will receive the same dose level of eribulin and there will not be any intra-patient dose escalation.

The dose level of eribulin will be escalated for additional cohorts in each of the two arms unless ≥2 dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) are reported at the lower dose level(s) prior to enrollment of the next dose level.

Phase II- Patients will be randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio to receive either eribulin in combination with pemetrexed, in each of two dosing schedules (Arms 1 and 2), or pemetrexed alone (Arm 3). For both the Phase Ib and II portions, 1 cycle of therapy will last 21 days, with an estimated number of 6 cycles. Radiologic examinations including a computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis as appropriate (and CT or magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] as appropriate), will be performed during Screening and thereafter every 2 cycles until disease progression.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Natural product isolated from Streptomyces pilosus. It forms iron complexes and is used as a chelating agent, particularly in the mesylate form.

A tyrosine kinase inhibitor and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that inhibits the BCR-ABL kinase created by chromosome rearrangements in CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA and ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA, as well as PDG-derived tyrosine kinases that are overexpressed in gastrointestinal stromal tumors.

A guanine-derived ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a NUCLEIC ACID SYNTHESIS INHIBITOR through its binding to, and inhibition of, THYMIDYLATE SYNTHASE.

Small RNAs found in the cytoplasm usually complexed with proteins in scRNPs (RIBONUCLEOPROTEINS, SMALL CYTOPLASMIC).

Disorder of the peripheral nerves that primarily impair small nerve fibers. The affected small nerve fibers include myelinated A-delta fibers (see A FIBERS) and unmyelinated C FIBERS. Because these small fibers innervate skin and help control autonomic function, their neuropathy presents with neuropathic pain, reduced thermal and pain sensitivity, and autonomic dysfunction (e.g. abnormal sweating or facial flushing). Small fiber neuropathy can be idiopathic or associated with underlying diseases (e.g., AMYLOIDOSIS; DIABETES MELLITUS; SARCOIDOSIS; or VASCULITIS).
