First-Line Chemotherapy and Panitumumab in Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

2014-08-27 03:17:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the addition of panitumumab to standard chemotherapy in first-line treatment of advanced Non Small Cell Lung Cancer improves the treatment outcome. Patients are selected based on triple mutational status.

Description

Advanced NSCLC holds a very poor prognosis with a moderate response rate to standard chemotherapy. The standard first-line treatment for advanced NSCLC is platinum based combination chemotherapy. The response rates are less than 30% and a substantial amount of patients will experience unnecessary toxicity in terms of e.g. nausea, vomiting, neuropathies or a considerable risk of renal toxicity. The median progression free survival is 3-4 months and consequently, the median overall survival is less than one year (Hotta et al 2007). Addition of new biological agents to standard chemotherapy regimens may improve the outcome for these patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
