Brief Summary:

This is a randomized controlled clinical trial of nab-paclitaxel + carboplatin

  • Endostatin for advanced melanoma after failure of PD-1 therapy. The aim was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of nab-paclitaxel+carboplatin
  • endostatin versus combination of paclitaxel and carboplatin in patients with advanced melanoma after failure of PD-1 therapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Advanced Melanoma Drug: Chemotherapeutic Combinations Drug: chemotherapy Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The enrollment time is expected to be 1.5 year and the observation time is 2 years. The regimen were performed on a 28-day/21-day cycle respectively. Subjects who met the entry criteria were treated in a 2:1 group according to a randomized list: the treatment group was treated with nab-paclitaxel + carboplatin + endostatin regimen, and the control group was treated with paclitaxel + carboplatin. In this trial, the efficacy is evaluated every 8 weeks until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity,or until the investigator deemed that the patient's condition was unacceptable for further treatment. The follow-up period was 24 months after the end of treatment (follow-up patient survival information and new anti-tumor treatment). The planning enrolled sample size for nab-paclitaxel + carboplatin + endostatin group and paclitaxel-carboplatin group were 90 patients and 45 patients, respectively.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    The time from treatment to tumor progression or death

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: At the end of Cycle 2 (each cycle is 28 days) ]

    response evaluation disease progression defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST, version 1.1) criteria.

    response (PR), refers to the number of cases with complete and partial response after treatment as a percentage of the total number of evaluable cases

  2. Disease Control Rate (DCR) [ Time Frame: At the end of Cycle 2 (each cycle is 28 days) ]
    The disease control rate was the proportion of patients with complete remission, partial remission and stability (SD) in all patients.

  3. overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    OS was defined as the time from the date of the first administration of trial regimen to the date of death from any cause (event) or last follow-up (censored data).

  4. Adverse events (AE) [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Adverse events (AE) were monitored on an ongoing basis and classified according to National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI CTCAE), version 4.0. Patients were assessed for toxicities before each administration, and toxicity was graded accordingly
