Abstract Text This randomised double-blind placebo-controlled study evaluated the addition of cediranib, an inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor receptors 1-3, to standard carboplatin/paclitaxel chemotherapy in advanced non-small cell lung cancer.Eligible patients received paclitaxel (200mg/m(2)) and carboplatin (area under the concentration time curve 6) intravenously every 3 weeks. Daily oral cediranib/placebo 20mg was commenced day 1 of cycle 1 and continued as monotherapy after completion of 4-6 cycles of chemotherapy. The primary end-point of the study was overall survival (OS). The trial would continue to full accrual if an interim analysis (IA) for progression-free survival (PFS), performed after 170 events of progression or death in the first 260 randomised patients, revealed a hazard ratio (HR) for PFS of ⩽ 0.70.The trial was halted for futility at the IA (HR for PFS 0.89, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.66-1.20, p = 0.45). A final analysis was performed on all 306 enrolled patients. The addition of cediranib increased response rate ([RR] 52% versus 34%, p = 0.001) but did not significantly improve PFS (HR 0.91, 95% CI 0.71-1.18, p = 0.49) or OS (HR 0.94, 95% CI 0.69-1.30, p=0.72). Cediranib patients had more grade 3 hypertension, diarrhoea and anorexia.The addition of cediranib 20mg daily to carboplatin/paclitaxel chemotherapy increased RR and toxicity, but not survival.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Unknown unknown lung cancer no benefit Carboplatin + Cediranib + Paclitaxel Phase I Actionable In a Phase II clinical trial of patients with advanced NSCLC, the combination of Cediranib (AZD-2171) and carboplatin/paclitaxel (CP) chemotherapy resulted in improved response rate over placebo plus CP, but did not improve progression-free survival, and the study did not proceed to Phase III due to toxicity (PMID: 24360368). 24360368
