Abstract

Docetaxel (Taxotere) is a semisynthetic taxoid that possesses significant activity as a single agent in the treatment of patients with non-small-cell lung cancer. In previously untreated patients with non-small-cell lung cancer, 100 mg/m2 of docetaxel administered as an intravenous infusion over 1 hour once every 3 weeks produced response rates that ranged from 21% to 38% and median survivals of 25.2 to 47.0 weeks. In patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer who had previously failed cisplatin (Platinol)-based chemotherapy, docetaxel produced median response rates of 20% to 21% and median survival of 28 to 42 weeks. This review summarizes results from key phase I and II studies demonstrating the antitumor activity and tolerability of docetaxel combined with platinum compounds for patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer. Phase I trials determined that 75 mg/m2 of docetaxel and 75 mg/m2 of cisplatin is the recommended dose for phase II and III trials. Overall, response rates with docetaxel and cisplatin have ranged from 21% to 48% and median survival of 8 to 13 months has been achieved in phase II trials. Regarding docetaxel and carboplatin, results from phase I trials in patients with nonhematologic solid tumors indicate that this combination is well tolerated. The maximum tolerated dose of docetaxel in combination with carboplatin (target area under the time-concentration curve of 6 mg/mL.min) is 90 mg/m2 without granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) (filgrastim [Neupogen]) support and 100 mg/m2 with G-CSF support. The combination of docetaxel and carboplatin is presently being evaluated in a multicenter phase II study for patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer.
