RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. 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 topotecan, paclitaxel, and filgrastim in treating patients who have previously untreated extensive-stage small cell lung cancer.
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate oral topotecan and paclitaxel in terms of toxicity and complete and partial response rate in patients with previously untreated extensive stage small cell lung cancer. II. Determine preliminary estimates of survival in this patient population in response to this regimen.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral topotecan on days 1-5 followed by paclitaxel IV over 3 hours on day 5. Beginning 24-48 hours after chemotherapy, patients receive filgrastim (G-CSF) subcutaneously daily for up to 10 days until blood counts recover. Treatment repeats every 4 weeks for 6 courses in the absence of disease progression. Patients who develop CNS progressive disease only should receive whole brain radiotherapy before continuing study treatment.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 42 patients will be accrued for this study over 6 to 10 months.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

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...
Paclitaxel has been shown to have clinical activity in the treatment of small cell lung cancer (SCLC). However, its role as third-line chemotherapy for SCLC after both etoposide- and camptothecin-base...
The optimal chemotherapy regimen for non-small cell lung cancer patients with interstitial lung disease is unclear. We therefore investigated the safety and efficacy of carboplatin plus nab-paclitaxel...
One of the major mediators of multidrug resistance (MDR) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the overexpression of ATP-binding cassette subfamily G member 2 (ABCG2). In this study, we conducted i...
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...
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.

Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
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...
