PURPOSE: Randomized phase II trial to study the effectiveness of celecoxib in preventing cervical cancer in patients who have high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions of the cervix.
- Compare the complete response rate in patients with high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions of the cervix treated with celecoxib vs placebo.
- Compare the toxicity of these drugs in these patients.
- Determine, preliminarily, the effect of celecoxib on cyclooxygenase-2 expression and human papilloma virus expression in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion status (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia [CIN] 2 vs CIN 3). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
- Arm I: Patients receive oral celecoxib twice daily for 1 month.
- Arm II: Patients receive oral placebo twice daily for 1 month. In both arms, treatment repeats monthly for 3 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. All patients then undergo loop electrosurgical excision procedure or cone biopsy to determine response.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 100 patients (50 per treatment arm) will be accrued for this study within 1-2 years.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Stage 0 Cervical Cancer
celecoxib, anti-cytokine therapy, antiangiogenesis therapy, biological therapy, cancer prevention intervention, chemoprevention of cancer, enzyme inhibitor therapy, growth factor antagonist therapy

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.
Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
Therapy with two or more separate preparations given for a combined effect.
The use of art as an adjunctive therapy in the treatment of neurological, mental, or behavioral disorders.
