Trial Information

Randomized Phase III Study of Docetaxel or Pemetrexed With or Without Cetuximab in Patients With Recurrent or Progressive Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer After Platinum-Based Therapy


Inclusion Criteria:



- Pathologic confirmation of metastatic, unresectable, or locally-advanced NSCLC.

- Disease progression during or following one prior platinum-based chemotherapy regimen
for advanced disease (stage IIIB or IV).

- Bidimensionally measurable disease.

- Karnofsky performance status score of 60 to 100 at study entry.

- The participant has tumor tissue available for immunohistochemical determination of
epidermal growth factor (EGFR) expression.

- Adequate recovery from recent surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. At least
4 weeks must have elapsed from major surgery, prior chemotherapy, prior treatment
with an investigational agent, or prior radiation therapy (palliative radiation
therapy is allowed).

- Accessible for treatment and follow-up. Participants enrolled in this trial must be
treated at the participating center.

- Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) and fertile men with partners of childbearing
potential must be using an adequate method of contraception.

- WOCBP must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

- Dementia, altered mental status, or any psychiatric condition that would prohibit the
understanding or rendering of informed consent.

- A serious uncontrolled medical disorder that would impair the ability of the patient
to receive protocol therapy.

- Symptomatic or uncontrolled metastases in the brain. Participants receiving a
glucocorticoid for brain metastases will be excluded, but those receiving
anticonvulsants will be eligible.

- Uncontrolled pleural effusion or ascites.

- Peripheral neuropathy greater than grade 2, as assessed by the National Cancer
Institutes-Common Toxicity Criteria Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE), Version 3.0.

- Any concurrent malignancy other than basal cell skin cancer, or carcinoma in situ of
the cervix. Patients with a previous malignancy, but without evidence of disease for
greater than or equal 3 years will be allowed to enter the trial.

- More than one prior chemotherapy regimen for advanced disease.

- Inadequate hematologic function defined by an absolute neutrophil count (ANC)
<1,500/mm3, a platelet count <100,000/mm3, and a hemoglobin level <9 g/dL. Red blood
cell transfusions are not permitted within 7 days of receiving cetuximab, docetaxel,
or pemetrexed.

- Inadequate hepatic function, defined by a total bilirubin level >1.5 times the upper
limit of normal (ULN), aspartate transaminase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase
(ALT) levels >2.5 times the ULN (greater than or equal to 5 times the ULN if known
liver metastases), and an alkaline phosphatase level >5.0 times the ULN.

- Inadequate renal function defined by a serum creatinine level >1.5 times the ULN.

- Prior treatment with cetuximab, or any other epidermal growth factor receptor
inhibitors, including tyrosine kinase inhibitors, such as gefitinib or erlotinib.
Participants must not have received prior chimerized or murine monoclonal antibody
therapy. Prior treatment with other monoclonal antibodies targeting receptors other
than the EGFR is permitted >30 days prior to randomization.

- Prior treatment with docetaxel or pemetrexed therapy.

- Inability or unwillingness to take folic acid or vitamin B12 supplementation.

- Inability or unwillingness to interrupt nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
for a 5-day period (8-day period for long-acting agents such as piroxicam). Aspirin
will be permitted during the study.

- Patients (including prisoners) who are compulsorily detained (involuntarily
incarcerated) for treatment of either a psychiatric or physical (eg, infectious
disease) illness.

- Prior treatment with an experimental drug or medical device within 30 days of
randomization.

Type of Study:

Interventional

Study Design:

Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Outcome Measure:

Progression Free Survival (PFS)

Outcome Description:

PFS was defined as the time from randomization until the date of progressive disease (PD) or death from any cause. Participants who were alive and without progression were censored at the date of their last tumor assessment. PFS was assessed by the independent review committee (IRC) in the Pemetrexed group (Cetuximab & Pemetrexed versus Pemetrexed) and by the investigator in the Docetaxel group (Cetuximab & Docetaxel versus Docetaxel).

Outcome Time Frame:

Randomization to progression of disease or death due to any cause up to 59.6 months

Safety Issue:

No
