Abstract Share this page

There is no standard therapy for relapsed small cell lung cancer (rSCLC). We evaluated the efficacy and toxicity of a new triplet consisting of irinotecan (100 mg/m(2) Days 1 and 15 q28), cisplatin (40 mg/m(2) Days 1 and 15 q28) and mitomycin (6 mg/m(2) d1 q28) administered to a maximum of 6 cycles in individuals with rSCLC that had relapsed following first line treatment. Partial remissions were observed in 35% and progression in 30% of patients. Progression free survival measured 4.5 months (95% CI 0.8-8.2) and overall survival was 7.8 months (95% CI 5.3-10.3). QoL showed improvement in activity symptoms and stabilization of physical symptoms. As IPM was a well-tolerated regimen with activity in rSCLC, a phase III trial comparing this triplet with other regimens in this setting is warranted.
