  Purpose

This trial investigates pemetrexed and cisplatin followed by pemetrexed and cisplatin in combination with radiotherapy in participants with locally advanced, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The purpose of the study is to assess the antitumor activity as measured by progression free survival 1 year after start of treatment with study drug.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 1 Year Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: Date of first dose to date of objectively determined PD or death [every cycle up to 4 cycles and then every 3 months up to 1 year (1 cycle=21 days)] ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Progression free survival (PFS) was defined as the time from study enrollment to the first observation of progressive disease (PD) or death from any cause. For participants not known to have died as of the data cut-off date and who did not have objective PD, PFS was censored at the date of the last objective progression-free disease assessment. For participants who received subsequent systemic anticancer therapy (after discontinuation from the study drug) prior to objectively determined PD or death, PFS was censored at the date of the last objective progression-free disease assessment prior to start of postdiscontinuation chemotherapy. If a participant did not have a complete baseline disease assessment, then PFS was censored at the enrollment date, regardless whether or not objectively determined PD or death had been observed for the participant.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Date of first dose to date of death (up to 35.4 months) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall survival (OS) was the duration from enrollment to death due to any cause. Participants who were alive were censored at the last contact.

  • Number of Participants With an Objective Tumor Response [ Time Frame: Date of first dose through end of follow-up [up to 30 weeks (1 cycle=21 days)] ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants with confirmed complete response (CR), confirmed partial response (PR), stable disease (SD), or progressive disease (PD) according to Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST, version 1.0) criteria, as well as participants with a not evaluable/tumor response unknown. CR: disappearance of all tumor lesions. PR: either a) at least a 30% decrease in sum of longest diameter (LD) of target lesions taking as a reference baseline sum LDs, or b) complete disappearance of target lesions, with persistence (not worsening) of 1 or more nontarget lesions. In either case, no new lesions appeared. SD: small changes that did not meet above criteria. PD: at least a 20% increase in sum of LD of target lesions taking as reference smallest sum LD recorded since treatment started or appearance of 1 or more new lesions. Participants who discontinued study treatment (for reasons other than progression) before entering concurrent phase were considered to have non-evaluable response.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Pemetrexed
Pemetrexed and cisplatin are given as induction therapy followed after by pemetrexed and cisplatin with concurrent radiotherapy.
Drug: Pemetrexed
500 milligrams per square meter (mg/m²) intravenous infusion on Day 1 of a 21 day cycle for 2 cycles: with possibility of 2 additional cycles.
Other Names:
  • Alimta
  • LY231514
Drug: Cisplatin
75 mg/m² intravenous infusion on Day 1 of a 21 day cycle for 2 cycles; with the possibility of 2 additional cycles.
Radiation: Thoracic Radiotherapy
Administered at 2 gray (Gy)/fraction after completion of the pemetrexed and cisplatin infusions on Day 1 of Cycle 3 and will continue daily (5 days per week) until the total delivered dose reaches a therapeutic goal of 66 Gy, over approximately 7 weeks.

Detailed Description:

The participants will receive 2 cycles of pemetrexed and cisplatin. If the participants achieve complete response, partial response or stable disease as defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) guidelines, have ≤35% of the total calculated lung volume receive more than 20 Gy (V20) according to the 3-dimensional (3-D) radiotherapy planning Dose Volume Histograms, have an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1, have no residual neurological toxicity > Grade 2 according to Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE), they will receive 2 additional cycles of pemetrexed and cisplatin, combined with radiotherapy. The combination of radiotherapy will begin 22 to 36 days after completion of the second infusion of induction therapy with pemetrexed-cisplatin.

  • Adequate bone marrow reserve, hepatic-, renal- and pulmonary function.
  • Participants must sign an Informed Consent Document.
  • Participants must have a total lung V20 less than or equal to 35%.
  • For women: Must be surgically sterile, postmenopausal, or compliant with a medically approved contraceptive regimen, during and for 6 months after the treatment period; must have a negative serum pregnancy test within 7 days before study enrollment and must not be breast-feeding. For men: Must be surgically sterile or compliant with a contraceptive regimen during and for 6 months after the treatment period.
  • Have not received prior systemic anticancer therapy for NSCLC.

Exclusion Criteria:
