About Study 514-02
Study 514-02 will be a randomized, open-label, multicenter, non-inferiority study comparing ANX-514, administered without corticosteroid premedication, and Taxotere, administered with corticosteroid premedication, in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer after failure of prior platinum-based therapy. Approximately 400 patients will be enrolled and treated until evidence of progressive disease, unacceptable toxicity, withdrawal of consent, or other withdrawal criteria are met. The primary objective will be to compare the incidence of fluid retention between study arms. The secondary objectives will be to compare ANX-514 and Taxotere in terms of overall safety profile, objective response rate, duration of response, progression-free survival and overall survival.
