Trial Information

A Phase 1b/2 Study of Carboplatin-Paclitaxel, With or Without ISIS 183750 (an eIF4E Inhibitor), in Patients With Stage IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

Inclusion Criteria:

- Male or female patients age >/= 18 years

- Histologically or cytologically confirmed diagnosis of NSCLC

- Stage IV disease (including patients with pleural effusion who were previously
classified as Stage IIIB)

- All of the following if patient has had prior radiation therapy:

1. Lesion(s) used for determination of response were not previously irradiated or
have increased in size since the completion of radiotherapy

2. The patient has recovered from any acute effects of the radiotherapy

3. Radiotherapy was completed at least 4 weeks prior to Screening

- Part 1: Have at least non-measurable evaluable disease (e.g., lesions which are
smaller than the minimum size required for measurability; other non-measurable
lesions such as bone metastases, malignant pleural effusion)

- Part 2: Have measurable disease, defined as at least 1 lesion that can be accurately
measured in at least 1 dimension

- Performance status of 0 or 1 on the ECOG Performance Status Scale

- Have an estimated life expectancy of at least 12 weeks

- Adequate organ function within 14 days prior to first study dose (ISIS EIF4E Rx or
carboplatin/paclitaxel, whichever occurs first) as defined by:

1. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >/= 1.5 x 109/L

2. Platelet count >/= 100 x 109/L

3. Hemoglobin >/=9 g/dL (>/= 5.6 mmol/L). Patients may receive packed RBC
transfusion to achieve this level at the discretion of the investigator.

4. Total bilirubin < 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) unless elevated secondary to
conditions such as Gilbert's Disease

5. Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) < 3 x ULN (< 5 x ULN in the presence of hepatic

6. Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) < 3 x ULN (< 5 x ULN in the presence of hepatic

7. Alkaline phosphatase < 3.0 x ULN

8. Calculated creatinine clearance >/= 60 mL/min per Cockcroft and Gault formula

- Satisfy one of the following:

1. Females: non-pregnant and non-lactating; surgically sterile, post-menopausal, or
patient or partner compliant with a reliable contraceptive regimen, as
determined by Investigator, for 4 weeks prior to Screening. Patients of
reproductive potential must test negative for pregnancy at Screen and must agree
to use a reliable method of birth control during the study and for the 10 weeks
following the last dose of ISIS EIF4E Rx.

2. Males: surgically sterile or patient or partner must agree to use a reliable
contraceptive method, as determined by the Investigator during the study and for
the 10 weeks following the last dose of ISIS EIF4E Rx.

- For Part 1: have discontinued all prior chemotherapies, biological therapies, and
other investigational therapies for cancer for at least 4 weeks (6 weeks for
mitomycin-C or nitrosoureas) prior to study treatment and recovered from the acute
effects of therapy.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Part 1: More than 2 prior chemotherapy or biological therapy regimens (approved or
experimental) for NSCLC, not counting adjuvant and neoadjuvant treatment. A regimen
is defined as two or more consecutive cycles of treatment.

- Part 2: Any prior chemotherapy or biological therapy (approved or experimental) for
NSCLC including adjuvant and neoadjuvant treatments

- Treatment with another investigational drug, biological agent, or device within 4
weeks (6 weeks for biological agents) before Screening or 5 half-lives of study
agent, whichever is longer

- Patients with treated or untreated parenchymal brain metastases or leptomeningeal
disease. Brain imaging is required for symptomatic patients to rule out brain
metastases, but is not required in asymptomatic patients.

- Patients with known pericardial effusion

- Have active infection or serious concomitant systemic disorder (for example, heart
failure) incompatible with the study (at the discretion of the Investigator)

- Presence or history of malignancy other than NSCLC, carcinoma in situ of the cervix,
or non-melanoma skin cancer. In the case of other malignancies, patients may be
considered for participation if the prior malignancies were diagnosed and
definitively treated at least five years previously with no subsequent evidence of

- Presence of an underlying disease state associated with active bleeding

- Ongoing therapy with oral or parenteral anticoagulants (e.g., heparin,
warfarin/coumadin). Low-dose anticoagulants for maintenance of catheter patency and
low dose aspirin (≤ 325 mg/day) and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents are not

- Concurrent treatment with other anticancer drugs

- Pre-existing peripheral neuropathy >/=Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events
Version 4.0 (CTCAE) Grade 2

- Known history of HIV, HCV, or chronic HBV infection

- Previous treatment with a therapeutic antisense oligonucleotide or siRNA

- Planned concomitant participation in another clinical trial of an experimental agent,
vaccine, or device

- Have any other medical conditions that in the opinion of the Investigator, would make
the patient unsuitable for enrollment, or could interfere with the patient
participating in or completing the study
