Abstract 1638


Humanized recombinant endostatin (rh-endostatin, Sulijia®) is an inhibitor of tumor angiogenesis. We aimed to assess efficacy and safety of rh-endostatin or placebo with vinorelbine/cisplatin (NP) as first-line treatment for patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).


In this multi-centre, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized phase 3 trial, we enrolled treatment-naïve patients with stage IV NSCLC. Patients were randomly allocated (2:1) to receive 4-cycle NP and either rh-endostatin 7.5mg/m2 or matching placebo on day 1-14 of a 21-day cycle, non-progressive patients then received rh-endostatin or placebo until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. The primary endpoint was progression-free survival (PFS). This study was registered with NCT03117335 and ChiCTR-TRC-11001539.


Between November 11th, 2011, and September 2nd, 2015, 560 patients were enrolled in this study. The median PFS was 5·4 months (95%CI 4·9-5·8) for patients in rh-endostatin plus NP group and 4·7 months (95%CI 4·4-5·9) for those in placebo plus NP group (Hazard Ratio [HR] 0·692; 95% CI 0·523-0·915; p = 0.0098). Subgroup analysis showed that patients with squamous NSCLC (5·0 [4·3-5·4] vs 3·9 [2·8-4·4] months, HR 0·440 [0·261-0·741], p = 0·0021) and smokers (5·0 [4·5-5·4] vs 4·4 [3·2-4·7] months, HR 0·629 [0·437-0·905], p = 0·0124) had significantly longer PFS in the rh-endostatin plus NP group than those in the placebo plus NP group. Adverse events were 99·7% (364/365) in the rh-endostatin plus NP group and 99·4% (180/181) in the placebo plus NP group. The most common grade 3 or worse adverse events were leukopenia (rh-endostatin vs placebo: 69·6% [254/365] vs 53% [96/181], p = 0·0002), neutropenia (77% [281/365] vs 65·2% [118/181], p = 0·0041), and decreased hemoglobin (19·7% [72/365] vs 12·2% [22/181], p = 0·0301).


Rh-endostatin plus NP improves PFS and is well tolerated as first-line treatment for patients with stage IV NSCLC, especially those with squamous NSCLC and smokers.
