Gene Therapy Plus Radiation Therapy in Treating Patients With Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

2014-08-27 03:58:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Inserting the gene for p53 into a person's cancer cells may improve the body's ability to fight cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of gene therapy plus radiation therapy in treating patients who have non-small cell lung cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the feasibility and tolerability of adenovirus p53 gene therapy and radiotherapy in patients with non-small cell lung cancer with or without prior radiotherapy to the indicator lesion(s).

- Determine p53 and p21 expression and induction of apoptosis and necrosis in patients treated with this regimen.

- Assess any vector incorporation, antitumor response, local control, viral dissemination, and development of adenovirus antibodies in patients treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified by prior radiotherapy to the indicator lesion(s) (yes vs no).

Adenovirus p53 is injected directly into an endobronchial lesion via bronchoscopy or into locoregional tumors via multiple percutaneous punctures under fluoroscopic, ultrasonic, or CT scan guidance on days 1, 3, and 8. Patients undergo radiotherapy beginning on day 2 and continuing for a total of 10 days.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 10 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.

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.

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.

Organs which might be damaged during exposure to a toxin or to some form of therapy. It most frequently refers to healthy organs located in the radiation field during radiation therapy.

Drugs used to protect against ionizing radiation. They are usually of interest for use in radiation therapy but have been considered for other, e.g. military, purposes.
