Introduction: The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and toxicity of dicycloplatin plus paclitaxel with those of carboplatin plus paclitaxel as first-line treatment for patients with advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Material and methods: In this study, 240 NSCLC patients with stage IIIB (with pleural effusion) and stage IV disease were randomly assigned (1 : 1) to receive dicycloplatin 450 mg/m2 or carboplatin AUC = 5, in combination with paclitaxel 175 mg/m2 (D + P or C + P) every 3 weeks for up to 4 to 6 cycles. The primary endpoint was response rate. Secondary endpoints included progression-free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS) and adverse events.

Results: The response rates for the D + P and C + P arm were 36.44% and 30.51%, respectively (p = 0.33). The median PFS was 5.6 months in the D + P arm and 4.7 months in the C + P arm (p = 0.31). The median OS was 14.9 months for D + P and 12.9 months for C + P (p = 0.37). Adverse events in the two arms were well balanced. The most common grade 3/4 adverse event was hematologic toxicity.

Conclusions: Patients treated with D + P had similar response and survival rates to those treated with C + P, and toxicities of both treatments were generally tolerable.
