RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the complete and overall response rate to paclitaxel in patients with previously untreated extensive stage small cell lung cancer. II. Determine the overall and progression free survival of these patients in response to this treatment regimen. III. Determine the toxicity of this treatment regimen in this patient population.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours weekly for 6 consecutive weeks. Treatment continues every 8 weeks for 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed every 2 months for 1 year, then every 3 months for 2 years, and then annually for 2 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 33 patients will be accrued for this study over 8-11 months.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

A treatment study is being conducted by the University of Rochester Cancer Center (URCC) in which patients with non-small cell lung cancer will be treated with radiation therapy and a drug...
A Phase III Study of MPDL3280A (Anti-PD-L1) in Combination With Carboplatin + Paclitaxel or Carboplatin + Nab-paclitaxel Compared With Carboplatin + Nab-paclitaxel in Patients With Stage IV Squamous Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
This randomized, open-label study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of MPDL3280A in combination with carboplatin + paclitaxel or carboplatin + nab-paclitaxel compared with treatment wi...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, paclitaxel, and paclitaxel poliglumex, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or ...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Heating paclitaxel to several degrees above body temperature and inf...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and the safety of paclitaxel given weekly in patients with advanced or recurrent non-small cell lung cancer
The therapeutic efficacy of paclitaxel is hampered by chemotherapeutic resistance in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Rsf-1 enhanced paclitaxel resistance via nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) in ovarian...
This study aims to develop new nanoformulations of EGFR T790M targeted inhibitor AZD9291 and paclitaxel (PTX) for combination therapy of lung cancer.
Nanoparticle albumin-bound (nab)-paclitaxel was developed to improve paclitaxel solubility and does not need premedication to avoid infusion-related reactions associated with solvent-based (sb)-paclit...
Paclitaxel (taxol) is an important agent against many tumors, including breast cancer. Ample data documents that paclitaxel inhibits breast cancer metastasis while others prove that paclitaxel enhance...
Standard of care for cancer is commonly a combination of surgery with radiotherapy or chemoradiotherapy. However, in some advanced cancer patients this approach might still remain inefficient and may ...
An injectable formulation of albumin-bound paclitaxel NANOPARTICLES.
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.
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...
Lung cancer is the uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Originating in the lungs, this growth may invade adjacent tissues and infiltrate beyond the lungs. Lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, is respons...
