Trial Information

A Phase II Randomized Trial of Paclitaxel, Carboplatin, Bevacizumab With or Without IMC-A12 in Patients With Advanced Non-Squamous Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer


I. To evaluate the progression-free survival with the combination of carboplatin,
paclitaxel, and bevacizumab with vs without cixutumumab in patients with stage IV or
recurrent non-squamous, non-small cell lung cancer.


I. To evaluate overall survival and response rate of the above combination in patients with
non-squamous, advanced non-small cell lung cancer.

II. To evaluate the toxicities of the above combination in patients with non-squamous
advanced non-small cell lung cancer.

OUTLINE: Patients are stratified according to ECOG performance status (0 vs 1). Patients are
randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

ARM I: Patients receive paclitaxel intravenously (IV) over 3 hours, carboplatin IV over 30
minutes, and bevacizumab IV over 30-90 minutes on day 1.

ARM II: Patients receive paclitaxel, carboplatin, and bevacizumab as in arm I. Patients also
receive cixutumumab IV over 1 hour on days 1, 8, and 15.In both arms, treatment repeats
every 21 days for 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Treatment with bevacizumab and cixutumumab may continue in the absence of disease
progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years and
then every 6 months for 3 years.
