RATIONALE: Panobinostat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as etoposide and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving panobinostat together with etoposide and cisplatin may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of panobinostat when given together with etoposide and cisplatin as first-line therapy in treating patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer.
- To determine the maximum-tolerated dose, the recommended dose, and the activity of panobinostat when given in combination with etoposide and cisplatin to patients with extensive-stage small cell lung cancer.
- To estimate the time-to-progression, the duration of response, and disease stabilization in these patients.
- To estimate the overall survival of these patients.
- To determine the pharmacokinetic profile of panobinostat in combination with etoposide and cisplatin.
- To assess the overall safety profile of panobinostat in these patients.
- To determine the adverse events in these patients treated with this regimen.
- To assess the quality of life of these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, dose-escalation study of panobinostat.
Patients receive chemotherapy comprising cisplatin IV on day 1, etoposide IV on days 1-3, and panobinostat IV over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Quality of life is assessed at baseline and then periodically during study treatment and follow up, using questionnaire EQ-5D (Euro QoL).
Blood samples may be collected at baseline and periodically during and after study treatment for pharmacokinetic assessment and biomarker translational studies.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 4 weeks and then every 3 months.

A semisynthetic derivative of PODOPHYLLOTOXIN that exhibits antitumor activity. Etoposide inhibits DNA synthesis by forming a complex with topoisomerase II and DNA. This complex induces breaks in double stranded DNA and prevents repair by topoisomerase II binding. Accumulated breaks in DNA prevent entry into the mitotic phase of cell division, and lead to cell death. Etoposide acts primarily in the G2 and S phases of the cell cycle.
An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.

Body of knowledge related to the use of organisms, cells or cell-derived constituents for the purpose of developing products which are technically, scientifically and clinically useful. Alteration of biologic function at the molecular level (i.e., GENETIC ENGINEERING) is a central focus; laboratory methods used include TRANSFECTION and CLONING technologies, sequence and structure analysis algorithms, computer databases, and gene and protein structure function analysis and prediction.
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...
