Abstract
BACKGROUND: Belotecan is a topoisomerase I inhibitor. This phase II trial was conducted to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of belotecan in relapsing small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) patients after irinotecan failure. PATIENTS AND METHODS: SCLC patients, who had relapsed at least 3 months after achieving objective response to irinotecan plus platinum chemotherapy, were eligible. Belotecan was administered at a dose of 0.5 mg/m(2)/day for 5 consecutive days every 3 weeks. RESULTS: Twenty-seven patients were enrolled in this study. Twenty-five patients were evaluated for response, and 27 patients were evaluated for toxicity and survival. The overall response rate was 22%. The median time to progression was 4.7 months (95% CI, 3.6-5.8 months), and the median overall survival was 13.1 months (95% CI, 10.4-15.8 months). The most frequent grade 3/4 toxicities were neutropenia (93%) and thrombocytopenia (48%). There was one treatment-related death due to pneumonia. CONCLUSION: Belotecan showed modest activity and manageable toxicities in relapsing SCLC patients in this study which was conducted in Asia. But further study in Caucasian patients is needed.
