Trial Information

A Phase II Study of Picoplatin as Second-Line Therapy for Subjects With Resistant or Refractory Small Cell Lung Cancer

Platinum drugs work by binding to DNA and preventing the rapid cell division of tumors.
However, many tumors demonstrate a resistance to platinum drugs. Results from preclinical
studies indicate that picoplatin (previously called AMD473 or ZD0473) may be able to
overcome or partially overcome platinum resistance. More than 500 patients have received
picoplatin in previous Phase I or Phase II clinical trials.

Main inclusion criteria:

1. Diagnosis of small cell lung cancer.

2. Patients must have had one prior chemotherapy regimen which must have included either
