Surgery With or Without Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Stage I Non-small Cell Lung Cancer

2014-08-27 03:58:58 | 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. It is not yet known whether surgery is more effective with or without chemotherapy for non-small cell lung cancer.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of surgery with or without combination chemotherapy in treating patients who have stage I non-small cell lung cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the prevalence of 10 molecular biological markers (growth factors HER-2/neu and K-ras codon 12 mutations, cell cycle factors Ki-67 and rb, apoptosis factors p53 and bcl-2, angiogenesis factor viii, and adhesion protein CD-44 plus motility factor gelsolin) in patients with resected stage IB non-small cell lung cancer considered to be at high risk of recurrence.

- Compare the prognostic importance of specific markers on the failure-free survival of patients treated with paclitaxel and carboplatin vs no adjuvant therapy after resection.

- Determine the influence of adjuvant chemotherapy on cancer-free survival relative to marker expression in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to tumor histology (squamous cell vs nonsquamous cell), degree of differentiation (poorly differentiated vs other), and mediastinal node sampling at surgery (yes vs no). Within 4-8 weeks after surgery, patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

- Arm I:Patients receive no further therapy.

- Arm II: Patients receive adjuvant therapy comprising paclitaxel IV over 3 hours followed by carboplatin IV over 1-2 hours on day 1. Treatment continues every 3 weeks for 4 courses.

Patients are followed every 4 months for 2 years and then every 6 months thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 500 patients will be accrued for this study within 2.8 years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.

Combined chemotherapy and radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery. It is commonly used in the therapy of cancer.

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

A performance measure for rating the ability of a person to perform usual activities, evaluating a patient's progress after a therapeutic procedure, and determining a patient's suitability for therapy. It is used most commonly in the prognosis of cancer therapy, usually after chemotherapy and customarily administered before and after therapy. It was named for Dr. David A. Karnofsky, an American specialist in cancer chemotherapy.
