Trial Information

A Phase II Study of Docetaxel and Vinorelbine in Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Carcinoma

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the response to docetaxel and vinorelbine with filgrastim (G-CSF)
support in patients with stage IIIB or IV non-small cell lung cancer. II. Determine the
toxicity of this regimen in these patients. III. Determine the overall survival and time to
tumor progression in patients treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients receive vinorelbine IV over 6-10 minutes and
docetaxel IV over 1 hour on day 1 and filgrastim (G-CSF) subcutaneously daily on days 2-12
or until blood counts recover. Treatment continues every 2 weeks in the absence of disease
progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed every 3 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 60 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.
