RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as topotecan, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
- Determine the overall survival of patients with recurrent extensive stage small cell lung cancer treated with high-dose topotecan hydrochloride.
- Determine the safety and toxic effects of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the recurrence-free survival of patients treated with this drug.
- Determine time to response and tumor response in patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the quality of life of patients treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is a non-randomized, multicenter study.
Patients receive high-dose topotecan hydrochloride IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, and 36. Treatment repeats every 56 days for 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Quality of life is assessed at baseline, day 1 of each course (except course 1), at the end of study treatment, and then every 3 months thereafter.
Patients are followed at 7-14 days and then every 3 months thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 65 patients will be accrued for this study.

Topotecan is one of the most active chemotherapeutic drugs for small cell lung cancer (SCLC). However, its efficacy in elderly patients with SCLC has not been validated. This study evaluated the feasi...
Topotecan is a relatively large, planar, asymmetric and polar molecule with a lactone moiety. In neutral or basic aqueous solutions, this ring opens forming the carboxylate form of Topotecan that is b...
For patients with recurrent small cell lung cancer (SCLC), topotecan remains the only FDA-approved or EMA-approved second-line treatment, and outcomes are poor. CheckMate 032 is a phase 1/2, multicent...
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in Germany. Although several randomized trials in Europe have evaluated the effectiveness of lung cancer screening programs, evidence on the cost-effec...
November marks Lung Cancer Awareness Month, and reminds us that lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States. In this brief report, we highlight CDC resources that...
A quinazoline derivative and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that functions as a PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR for EGFR associated tyrosine kinase. It is used in the treatment of NON-SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.
An antineoplastic agent used to treat ovarian cancer. It works by inhibiting DNA TOPOISOMERASES, TYPE I.
Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
A synthetic opioid that is used as the hydrochloride. It is an opioid analgesic that is primarily a mu-opioid agonist. It has actions and uses similar to those of MORPHINE. It also has a depressant action on the cough center and may be given to control intractable cough associated with terminal lung cancer. Methadone is also used as part of the treatment of dependence on opioid drugs, although prolonged use of methadone itself may result in dependence.

Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
