Twenty patients with stage IIIB/IV nonsmall cell lung cancer were treated with apricoxib, a novel cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor (100, 200, or 400 mg/day), in combination with 150 mg/day erlotinib. Treatment was well tolerated and associated with a 60% disease control rate and greater antitumor activity in patients with a decrease from baseline prostaglandin E2 metabolite (PGE-M). Therefore, 400 mg/day apricoxib plus 150 mg/day erlotinib is being investigated in a phase II study in patients selected based on change in urinary PGE-M.
