RATIONALE: Celecoxib may slow the growth of cancer by stopping blood flow to the tumor. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy and celecoxib may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of celecoxib and docetaxel in treating patients who have non-small cell lung cancer.
- Determine the efficacy and feasibility of celecoxib combined with docetaxel as first-line therapy in elderly or poor performance status patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer.
- Determine the response rate of patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive oral celecoxib twice daily (beginning on day -7 of the first course) and docetaxel IV over 1 hour on days 1, 8, and 15. Treatment repeats every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients who achieve a complete response (CR) receive 2 additional courses after CR. Patients who achieve stable disease (SD) or a partial response (PR) receive a minimum of 2 additional courses after SD or PR. At the discretion of the treating physician, patients then receive maintenance therapy comprising celecoxib only.
Patients who discontinue therapy for disease progression or unacceptable toxicity are followed for at least 6 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 21-39 patients will be accrued for this study within 13-28 months.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Docetaxel is one of the most effective anticancer drugs. However, the current formulation of docetaxel contains Tween 80 and ethanol as the solvent, which can cause severe side effects. Consequently, ...
PALB2, the partner and localizer of BRCA2, is essential for homologous recombination repair. We examined messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) levels of DNA-repair genes including PALB2, RNF8, RIF1, ATM, ...
Nonhematologic adverse events (AEs) of docetaxel constitute an extra burden in the treatment of cancer patients and necessitate either a dose reduction or an outright switch of docetaxel for other reg...
Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
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.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
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...
