A Randomized, Phase IIB/III Study of Ganetespib (STA-9090) in Combination With Docetaxel Versus Docetaxel Alone in Subjects With Stage IIIb or IV Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer
Preliminary signals of clinical activity of ganetespib as a single agent have been observed
in NSCLC. A novel approach to treatment of NSCLC is the combination of Hsp90 inhibitors, such
as ganetespib, and taxanes. Such combinations have shown potential for synergy in preclinical
and clinical evaluations with other Hsp90 inhibitors. Preclinical studies with ganetespib and
taxanes have indicated that the combination of these drugs was more effective than either
drug alone at inducing cell death, and an ongoing phase 1 study indicates that the
combination is well tolerated and warrants systematic evaluation in a larger study.
Phase 2/3 - for trials that are a combination of phases 2 and 3.
