Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
PFS is defined as the duration of time from start of treatment to time of progression or death, whichever occurs first. Progressive Disease (PD): Appearance of one or more new lesions and/or unequivocal progression of existing non-target lesions. The data of first documented disease progression or death, as defined by Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST), was recorded, and the time interval from randomization to that date was calculated for each patient and used to generate Kaplan-Meier survival estimates and to calculate the PFS at 6 months.

  • Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    OS at 12 months, determined from the date of randomization. The time interval from randomization to the date of death was calculated for each patient and used to generate Kaplan-Meier survival estimates and to calculate the overall survival.
  • Response Rate (RR) [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of participants per response category. Response to treatment was determined according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST). Complete Response (CR): Disappearance of all target lesions. Any pathological lymph nodes (whether target or non-target) must have reduction in short axis to <10 mm. Partial Response (PR): At least a 30% decrease in the sum of the diameters of target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum diameters.

Phase III of RRM1 & ERCC1 Directed Customized Chemotherapy for the Treatment of Patients With NSCLC
Randomized Phase III Multicenter Trial of RRM1 & ERCC1 Directed Customized Chemotherapy Versus Standard of Care for 1st Line Treatment of Patients With Advanced Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer

This is a clinical research study to evaluate if chemotherapy in the experimental arm (E) results in a better outcome compared to patients in the standard of care arm (C).

2:1 randomization to experimental arm (E) or standard arm (C). In arm E, treatment of dual-agent chemotherapy will be selected based on RRM1 and ERCC1 expression at the protein level. In arm C, treatment of dual-agent chemotherapy will be gemcitabine/carboplatin, i.e., standard of care.

Before each cycle, blood tests, vital signs, interim medical history, and a physical exam will be performed. Patients will be carefully checked so that immediate intervention can be initiated should an adverse event (i.e. hypersensitivity) occur.

The last treatment cycle according to the study will be cycle #6, or any earlier cycle. Certain tests will be done within 28 days after the last drug infusion. These include physical exam, vital signs, temperature, weight, adverse event evaluation, imaging studies, and blood work.

The study doctor will see the participants every 6 to 8 weeks for at least 12 months after they start treatment. After that, the participants will be followed every 3 months for an additional 24 months.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically confirmed Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) of adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, large cell carcinoma, or NSCLC not otherwise specified. Patients with suspected NSCLC may enroll prior to the diagnostic biopsy in order to obtain both the diagnostic and molecular analysis-required specimen during the same procedure. Must have blood work within 30 days prior to biopsy to eliminate any unnecessary biopsies on patients that do not qualify (screen failures) due to laboratory values that do not meet the inclusion/exclusion criteria. If a patient has blood work obtained at an outside facility, this can be utilized for the preliminary assessment prior to biopsy, but final inclusion/exclusion values must be obtained within 14 days of start of treatment.
  • Willing to undergo biopsy to enable customization of chemotherapy
  • Stage IV or IIIB (malignant pleural effusion) NSCLC
  • Measurable or evaluable disease by Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST)
  • Performance status 0 or 1 by Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) criteria

  • Previous surgery for NSCLC (more that 30 days before study entry)
  • Previous radiotherapy (RT) is allowed if: the time between completion of RT and initiation of chemotherapy is at least 7 days; the patient has fully recovered from all toxic effects; at least one target lesion or evaluable disease is outside the radiation field
  • Previous chemotherapy allowed if the last dose was administered equal to or greater than 12 months ago. This chemotherapy must have been given in an adjuvant or neoadjuvant mode prior to or after a complete surgical resection (R0 resection) for a NSCLC.
  • Patients with stable brain metastases will be allowed to enroll. Stable brain metastases being defined as no progression of brain metastases 28 days after conclusion of definitive treatment as documented by a computed tomography (CT) scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain. Patients with incidentally discovered asymptomatic brain metastases may be enrolled and treated with chemotherapy without prior brain irradiation if deemed feasible by the treating physician.
