      • Abstract


      We performed an open-label, multicenter phase I/II study (UMIN ID 000012719) to prospectively evaluate the efficacy and safety of the combination of nab-paclitaxel plus carboplatin (nab-P/C) with concurrent thoracic radiotherapy in unresectable stage III non-small cell lung cancer.

      In the phase I study (standard 3+3 design), escalating doses of weekly nab-paclitaxel were given along with weekly carboplatin area under the plasma concentration time curve (AUC) 2 and concurrent radiotherapy 60 Gy in 30 fractions, followed by 2 cycles of nab-paclitaxel (100 mg/m2 on Days 1, 8 and 15) plus carboplatin (AUC 6 on Day 1). In the phase II study, nab-P/C at recommend dose (RD) was administered.

      In the Phase I study, 11 patients were enrolled with 9 evaluable for dose limiting toxicity (DLT). At level 1 (nab-paclitaxel 40mg/m2), none of 3 patients experienced DLT. At level 2 (nab-paclitaxel 50mg/ m2), 1 of 6 patients experienced DLT: grade 3 leukopenia requiring a second consecutive skip in the administration of weekly nab-P/C. Level 2 was defined as the RD. A total of 56 patients including 6 patients who received at dose of RD, were evaluable for the efficacy and safety. Of the 56 patients for safety analysis, common toxicities in the concurrent phase included grade 3/4 leukopenia (60.7 %), neutropenia (26.8 %), anemia (7.1 %), anorexia (7.1 %), esophagitis (5.4 %) and febrile neutropenia (1.8 %). In one patient, grade 3 pneumonitis was observed. There were no treatment-related deaths. The objective response rate was 76.8 % (95% confidence interval (CI), 64.2 to 85.9 %). The median progression-free survival was 11.8 months (60% CI, 10.6 to 16.2 months, 95% CI, 8.2 to 20.8 months), and the median overall survival was not reached.

      This is the first study to demonstrate encouraging feasibility and activity for concurrent chemoradiation with nab-paclitaxel 50 mg/m2 and CBDCA AUC 2 in patients with locally advanced NSCLC.
