- to assess the objective response rate (ORR) of SAR240550 administered as a 60-min intravenous infusion twice weekly, when combined to gemcitabine/cisplatin chemotherapy regimen (GCS) as well as with the standard regimen of gemcitabine/cisplatin (GC) in patients with stage IV non small cell lung cancer.
Secondary objectives are:
- to assess the safety profiles of the study combination gemcitabine/cisplatin/SAR240550 (GCS) and of the standard regimen gemcitabine/cisplatin (GC) alone
- to assess the progression free survival and the overall survival in both arms.
- to assess the relationship between DNA repair pathway characteristics of tumors at baseline and clinical outcome of disease.
- to assess the effect of SAR240550 on PAR level in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC).
The duration of the study for a patient will include a period for inclusion of up to 3 weeks. The patients may continue treatment up to a maximum of 6 cycles or until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or consent withdrawal, followed by a minimum of 30-day follow-up after the last study treatment administration.
Patients will be followed for at least 30 days after the last administration of study treatment for safety purpose. In case of study treatment discontinuation without disease progression, efficacy data will be collected every 6 weeks until disease progression, death or end of study whatever comes first. After disease progression, the patient will be followed-up every 12 weeks (3 months) for overall survival (OS) until death or end of study whatever comes first.
The end of the study will be one year after the first dose of the last treated patient.

A Phase III Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo Controlled Trial Comparing the Efficacy of Gemcitabine, Cisplatin and Sorafenib to Gemcitabine, Cisplatin and Placebo in First-Line Treatment of Patients With Stage IIIb With Effusion and Stage IV Non-Small Ce
Evaluation of gemcitabine and cisplatin in combination with either sorafenib or placebo for the treatment of patients with advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
Based on available data, the concept of neo-adjuvant chemotherapy seems to be promising for patients with resectable non-small cell lung cancer. The exploration of new drugs and regimens a...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine, cisplatin, and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping...
Gemcitabine and cisplatin given together is a standard treatment option for advanced lung cancer patients. The purpose of this study is to assess if the life span is longer in patients tak...
The purposes of this study are to determine: 1. If treatment with LY900003 plus gemcitabine and cisplatin can help you live longer, compared with gemcitabine and cisplatin alone. ...
Gemcitabine-cisplatin combination is one of the most used schedules for non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Aiming to enhance dose intensity and reduce toxicity, the original 4-week schedule was modif...
We reported previously a phase II study of adjuvant chemotherapy consisting of four cycles of vinorelbine (25 mg/m) and cisplatin (40 mg/m), given on days 1 and 8, every 4 weeks, to Japanese patien...
Colon cancer-associated transcript-1 (CCAT1) has been demonstrated to act as an oncogene and promote chemoresistance in several cancers. However, little is known about the underlying mechanism of CCAT...
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of gemcitabine (GEM) at 30 min standard-dose infusion (30 min-SDI) compared with prolonged low-dose infusion (P-LDI) in patients with advanced non-small-cell lung c...
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the world, and non-small cell lung cancer accounts for > 75% of all lung cancer cases. Cisplatin-based concurrent chemoradiotherapy has bec...
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.
A quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.
