A Study of Aflibercept Administered in Combination With Pemetrexed and Cisplatin in Patients With Advanced Carcinoma

2014-08-27 03:26:08 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to determine whether the combination of aflibercept, pemetrexed and cisplatin is safe and effective.

Description

The study will be conducted in two phases. In phase 1, patients with advanced cancer will receive different doses of aflibercept in combination with approved doses of pemetrexed and cisplatin. The objective of phase 1 is to determine the safest dose of the combined study medications. This dose will then be administered to patients with previously untreated non-small cell lung cancer in phase 2. The phase 2 portion of the study will determine if the combination is effective in treating non-small cell lung cancer.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Complex cytotoxic antibiotic obtained from Streptomyces flocculus or S. rufochronmogenus. It is used in advanced carcinoma and causes leukopenia.
