2014-08-27 03:18:59 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Phase II, randomised, controlled, non comparative study with 2 parallel groups:

- Arm A: patients will receive induction chemotherapy (cisplatin and docetaxel) followed by a concomitant radio-chemotherapy including 2 cycles of cisplatin and vinorelbine associated with a weekly cetuximab infusion during the radiotherapy.

- Arm B: patients will receive induction chemotherapy (cisplatin and docetaxel) followed by a concomitant radio-chemothérapy including 2 cycles of cisplatin and etoposide associated with a weekly cetuximab infusion during the radiotherapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A chimeric monoclonal antibody that functions as an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT through its binding to the EPIDERMAL GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR, where it prevents the binding and signaling action of cell growth and survival factors.

A semisynthetic derivative of PODOPHYLLOTOXIN that exhibits antitumor activity. Etoposide inhibits DNA synthesis by forming a complex with topoisomerase II and DNA. This complex induces breaks in double stranded DNA and prevents repair by topoisomerase II binding. Accumulated breaks in DNA prevent entry into the mitotic phase of cell division, and lead to cell death. Etoposide acts primarily in the G2 and S phases of the cell cycle.

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 form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).

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.
