Study Design
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Name: Nab-paclitaxel
Type: Drug
Overall Status
Patients with extensive disease(ED) small cell lung cancer is still have a dismal prognosis, even though the first line chemotherapy showing about 70% response rate. Most of the patients will relapse with in 6 months after the chemotherapy and the following therapy such as second line chemotherapy have a very limited efficacy to these patients. Currently, there is no standard 3rd line therapy for the patients with ED small cell lung cancer(SCLC).

As the investigators know, Nab-paclitaxel had showing promising efficacy in several cases report in the patients with SCLC, the aim of this clinical trial is to investigate the efficacy and safety of nab-paclitaxel as a single agent in the SCLC patients with extensive disease and failed to first line/ second line chemotherapy.
