      Background:
      A previous phase III randomized trial improved overall survival of patients with advanced or relapsed squamous cell lung carcinoma, compared with cisplatin plus docetaxel. However, evaluation of nedaplatin plus docetaxel’s effect on progression free survival (PFS) and time to progression (TTP) was limited.

      Method:
      To compare the efficacy and safety of nedaplatin plus docetaxel and cisplatin plus docetaxel. In this randomized, open-label, multicenter trial, patients diagnosed with advanced or relapsed squamous cell carcinoma pathologically or cytologically were enrolled in China. All the patients have no previous oncology medication. Patients were randomly assigned (1:1) to 80 mg/m² nedaplatin and 75 mg/m² docetaxel intravenously, or 75 mg/m² cisplatin and 75 mg/m² docetaxel, every 3 weeks for four cycles. The primary end points was PFS. Secondary endpoints included TTP and best overall response. The efficacy endpoint were analyzed in the intention-to-treat set and in the per protocol set. (Clinical trial number: NCT02088515; Funding:Jiangsu Simcere Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.)

      Result:
      From December 2013 to December 2015, 286 patients were randomly assigned. Two hundred and eighty patients were included in the modified intention-to-treat analysis (141 in the nedaplatin group and 139 in the cisplatin group). In the intention-to-treat analysis set, median PFS was 4.63 months (95% confidence interval (CI), 4.43-5.10) in the nedaplatin group and 4.23 months (95% CI, 3.37-4.53) in the cisplatin group. PFS did not differ significantly between two groups (log-rank test, p =0.056). In per protocol set, PFS was significantly longer in the nedaplatin group (median 4.63 months, 95% CI, 4.43-5.10) than in the cisplatin group (median 4.27 months, 95% CI, 3.37-4.53; hazard ratio 0.760, 95% CI 0.585-0.989; p=0.039, log-rank test). Best overall response and TTP were improved in nedaplatin group than in cisplatin group (p= 0.002, median 4.57(4.30-4.80) vs 3.67(3.13-4.43) p= 0.020, respectively) in the intention-to-treat analysis set. Grade III or IV adverse events was more frequent in the cisplatin group than in the nedaplatin group (46 of 141 patients in the nedaplatin group and 62 of 139 in the cisplatin group, p=0.039). Grade 3 or worse nausea (0 vs 7) and fatigue (1 vs 3) were more frequent in the cisplatin group than in the nedaplatin group.

      Conclusion:
      There was no significant difference of PFS between cisplatin group and nedaplatin group. However, more adverse events was observed in the cisplatin group than in the nedaplatin group. Nedaplatin plus docetaxel could be a new treatment option for advanced or relapsed squamous cell lung cancer.
