Trial of Bevacizumab and Ixabepilone for Advanced or Metastatic Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

2014-08-27 03:16:21 | BioPortfolio


This is a non-randomized, open-label, single arm phase II trial of the combination of bevacizumab and ixabepilone in patients with advanced- or metastatic non-squamous NSCLC progressive after first or second-line therapy. The main objective is to evaluate the progression-free survival in patients with advanced or metastatic non-squamous NSCLC being treated with ixabepilone and bevacizumab.


The first six patients will be enrolled in a lead-in phase of the study utilizing a reduced dose of ixabepilone. Patients will be monitored for safety and toxicity. If the combination is found to be tolerable and feasible, accrual will continue with the full-dose regimen. Toxicity will be monitored in real-time by the study investigators. Should unexpected or increased toxicity be detected, trial accrual will be halted for full analysis.

Bevacizumab will be administered intravenously, 10 mg/kg, every two weeks. Ixabepilone will be administered intravenously, 16 mg/m2, once weekly for 3 of 4 weeks on a 28-day schedule, to the first six patients enrolled. Ixabepilone will be administered intravenously, 20mg/m2, once weekly for 3 of 4 weeks on a 28-day schedule, to the remaining 40 patients enrolled.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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).

Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.
