RATIONALE: Bortezomib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for cancer cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one chemotherapy drug and bortezomib may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of combining bortezomib with gemcitabine and carboplatin in treating patients who have advanced or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer.
- Determine the safety and feasibility of combining bortezomib with gemcitabine and carboplatin in patients with advanced or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer.
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of bortezomib administered in combination with gemcitabine and carboplatin in these patients.
- Correlate results from laboratory studies on patient tissue and serum specimens with potential predictors of response in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine, preliminarily, the response of patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, dose-escalation study of bortezomib.
Patients receive gemcitabine IV over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8, carboplatin IV over 15-30 minutes on day 1, followed 1 hour later by bortezomib IV over 3-5 seconds on days 1, 4, 8, and 11. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with a clinical or radiographic response may continue receiving bortezomib beyond 6 courses.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of bortezomib until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
Once the MTD is determined, at least 10 additional patients with chemotherapy-naive disease receive treatment as above with the MTD of bortezomib.
Patients are followed for survival.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 25-34 patients will be accrued for this study.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
bortezomib, carboplatin, gemcitabine hydrochloride

In this manuscript we aimed at the simultaneous separation and quantification of Gemcitabine and Irinotecan hydrochloride (injected both as single components and in combination) from Sprague Dawley ra...
Gemcitabine is the cornerstone of pancreatic cancer treatment. Although effective in most patients, development of tumor resistance to gemcitabine can critically limit its efficacy. The mechanisms res...

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.
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.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
