Inclusion criteria

  • Written informed consent
  • At least 18 years old
  • Confirmed advanced non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC)
  • Received one prior chemotherapy for metastatic NSCLC excluding TAXOTERE or HYCAMTIN. In addition, subjects are allowed to have previously received a non-cytotoxic therapy, such as an endothelial growth factor receptor (EGFR) or angiogenesis inhibitor.
  • Presence of either measurable or non-measurable disease by radiologic study or physical examination.
  • Full recovery and at least 21 days from prior treatment for NSCLC; 42 days from treatment with mitomycin or nitrosureas and 30 days from prior non-cytotoxic therapy.
  • At least 3 weeks since last major surgery (a lesser period is acceptable if deemed in the best interest of the patient).
  • At least 7 days since prior radiotherapy.
  • A probable life expectance of at least 3 months.
  • Adequate bone marrow reserve, CBC/Platelet, kidney and liver function.

Exclusion criteria

  • Concomitant malignancies or other malignancies within the last five years.
  • Symptoms of brain metastases requiring treatment with steroids.
  • Active infection.
  • Severe medical problems other than the diagnosis of NSCLC that would limit the ability of the subject to follow study guidelines or expose the subject to extreme risk.
  • Ongoing or planned chemotherapy (other than treatment during this study), immunotherapy, radiotherapy, or investigational therapy for the treatment of NSCLC.
  • Use of investigational drug within 30 days or 5 half-lives prior to the first dose of study medication.
  • Women who are pregnant or lactating.
  • Subjects of child-bearing potential refusing to practice adequate contraception.
  • Prior treatment with or history of allergic reaction to either HYCAMTIN or TAXOTERE.
  • Subjects who cannot receive steroid premedication.
