Abstract

The authors evaluated the efficacy and toxicity of the combination of carboplatin, ifosfamide, and vinorelbine in the treatment of advanced non-small-cell lung cancer. From March 1994 through March 1996, 56 previously untreated patients with stage IIIB or stage IV non-small-cell lung cancer with measurable lesions and good performance status were entered in the study. The chemotherapy schedule was as follows: carboplatin 100 mg/m(2) and ifosfamide 1,500 mg/m(2) with mesna on days 1, 2, and 3; vinorelbine 25 mg/m(2) on days 1 and 8, every 21 days; for a total of six courses. Among 55 evaluable patients there were three complete responses (5%) and 22 partial responses (40%), for a response rate of 45% (95% confidence interval, 32-59%). The median response duration was 10.3 months (range, 2.5-27.7 months), and median survival time was 11.3 months (range, 1.1-28.1 months). The survival rate at 1 year was 48%. Toxicity included hematologic toxicity in 60% of the 247 treatment cycles administered, nausea, alopecia, and neuropathy. One pathologic complete response was observed in a patient with stage IIIB disease who became operable after four courses of chemotherapy. The outpatient treatment with carboplatin, ifosfamide, and vinorelbine shows activity in advanced non-small-cell lung cancer. The toxicity was well tolerated by patients with a good performance status.
