“I am very enthusiastic about this investigational drug in SCLC. Ifosfamide, in combination with carboplatin and etoposide, is one of the few treatments to have demonstrated a survival advantage in SCLC, yet is often too toxic to be used effectively,” said Wael A. Harb, M.D., Medical Director of Clinical Research, Indiana University Health Arnett, Hoosier Oncology Group, and lead author. “The combination with palifosfamide appears to be well tolerated and has demonstrated promising clinical activity in SCLC, germ cell tumor and ovarian cancer. I look forward to participating in the confirmatory study in SCLC.”“Based on past studies and my experience in SCLC, I am encouraged by these data and the potential of a combination regimen using palifosfamide, carboplatin and etoposide,” said Lawrence Einhorn, M.D., Distinguished Professor at the Simon Cancer Center of Indiana University Medical Center, Lance Armstrong Foundation Chair in Oncology, former President of ASCO and a member of ZIOPHARM's Medical Advisory Board. “Small cell lung cancer is a disease in desperate need of an effective treatment option, as the standard of care has remained unchanged after decades of research. These early data are not only an important step forward for palifosfamide in SCLC but also potentially other solid tumors.”
