Combination Chemotherapy Plus Filgrastim in Treating Patients With Previously Untreated Extensive-Stage Small Cell Lung Cancer

2014-08-27 03:58:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells. Colony-stimulating factors such as filgrastim may increase the number of immune cells found in bone marrow or peripheral blood and may help a person's immune system recover from the side effects of chemotherapy.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy plus filgrastim in treating patients who have previously untreated extensive-stage small cell lung cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the survival and response rate of patients with previously untreated extensive stage small cell lung cancer treated with paclitaxel, carboplatin, topotecan, and filgrastim (G-CSF). II. Determine the side effects and toxicity of this regimen in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients receive topotecan IV over 30 minutes on days 1-4 and paclitaxel IV over 1 hour followed by carboplatin IV over 1 hour prior to topotecan on day 4. Patients receive filgrastim (G-CSF) subcutaneously once daily beginning on day 5 and continuing until blood counts recover. G-CSF must be discontinued at least 24 hours prior to beginning each subsequent course of chemotherapy. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed every 6 months for 3 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 75 patients will be accrued for this study over 18 months.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

An antineoplastic agent used to treat ovarian cancer. It works by inhibiting DNA TOPOISOMERASES, TYPE I.

An injectable formulation of albumin-bound paclitaxel NANOPARTICLES.

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.
