Efficacy Study of Avastin® With Pemetrexed +/- Carboplatin to Treat Elderly Patients With Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

2014-08-27 03:19:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Multi-center, open, randomized (parallel) and comparative phase III.

Eligible patients will receive bevacizumab + chemotherapy for a minimum of 4 cycles followed by bevacizumab (+ pemetrexed, if appropriate) maintenance therapy until disease progression.

Arm A: Bevacizumab + pemetrexed

Arm B: Bevacizumab + pemetrexed + carboplatin

Description

Primary:

- Proof of non-inferior efficacy of a monochemotherapy regimen of pemetrexed plus bevacizumab versus a combination chemotherapy regimen of pemetrexed-carboplatin plus bevacizumab in elderly patients(> 65 years) as first-line treatment of advanced metastatic or recurrent non-squamous NSCLC by progression free survival

Secondary:

- To assess the efficacy of bevacizumab as measured by overall response rate and overall survival.

- To assess the safety of bevacizumab in combination with pemetrexed and pemetrexed and carboplatin.

- To assess quality of life by EORTC questionnaire QLQ-C30 and its lung cancer module LC-13

- To assess activity of daily life (iADL) in relation to ECOG performance status prior to study treatment

- To assess patient`s outcome and treatment delivery in relation to the Charlson comorbidity score and the Simplified Comorbidity Score
